About This Card

The Tangerine World Mastercard® is a no-fee rewards card that allows customers to earn 2% cashback in the three categories they’ve selected and 0.5% money back on all other purchases. 

Categories to choose from include, grocery, recurring bill payments, furniture, drug store, restaurants, home improvement, hotel-motel, entertainment, gas and public transportation. 

Rewards are earned automatically on everyday purchases, are paid monthly and can be applied to your credit card balance or redeemed into a savings account. 

Planning to spend more on groceries instead of dining out? No problem. Cardholders also have the option to change their categories to suit their spending choices.

This card also comes with a 1.95% rate on balance transfers for six months, and a slew of unique offers exclusive to Mastercard holders. 

This includes Mastercard’s Priceless Cities promotion, which allows cardholders to enjoy unique offers on an array of experiences around the world. While you're travelling, Boingo Wi-Fi for Mastercard Cardholders keeps you connected with access to over 1 million Wi-Fi hotspots around the world.

In addition to core benefits, the Tangerine World Mastercard® also includes mobile device insurance — which covers the cost of lost of stolen smartphones that were fully paid for with an eligible Mastercard — as well as rental car collision insurance and a number of travel perks.  Cardholders can also access special benefits and offers from a growing lineup of on-demand apps and subscription services.

Why get the Tangerine World Mastercard®? 

Get cash-back: The Tangerine World Mastercard® allows customers to earn 2%  cashback in the selected three categories. If you apply for a Tangerine World Mastercard® by October 31, 2022, you can earn an extra 15% back* (up to $150) when you spend up to $1,000 in everyday purchases within your first 2 months.

Extended warranty and additional protection: The Tangerine World Mastercard® lets cardholders double the original manufacturer’s warranty for up to one year on eligible purchases when you pay with your Mastercard. Most purchases made with the Tangerine World Mastercard® are covered if the item is lost, damaged, or stolen within the first 90 days after purchase. 

Travel perks: Mastercard holders have access to a number of unique experiences around the world through Mastercard’s Priceless Cities program. Cardholders can also take advantage of Mastercard® Airport Experiences Provided by LoungeKey. Your complimentary membership gives you exclusive dining, retail and spa offers in over 400 airports worldwide, along with access to over 1,000 lounges at $32 USD per visit.

Insurance coverage: With the Tangerine World Mastercard®, cardholders also hold mobile device insurance and rental car collision insurance on top of the card’s core benefits. The cardholder’s smartphone is protected when you charge the full cost of the phone to your Mastercard, which covers up to $1,000 if the device is lost, stolen, accidentally damaged or experiences mechanical failure.

*Rewards Promotional Offer:

The Tangerine 15% Limited Time Promotional Offer (the "Offer") is only available to new Tangerine Credit Card Account holders who (i) apply for a Tangerine Money-Back Credit Card (the "Account") by October 31, 2022, (ii) activate their Account within 45 days of approval, and (iii) have up to a maximum of $1,000 in total Net Purchases posted to their Account within the 60-day period beginning on the date the Tangerine Money-Back Credit Card is activated. "Net Purchases" include purchases charged to the Account (less any refunds, returns or other similar credits) but do not include payments, Cash Advances (including Balance Transfers and Cash-Like Transactions), interest, fees, insurance premiums, adjustments or other charges. The Offer Bonus of 15% (up to $150) will be credited to the Primary Cardholder's Account within 1-2 statement cycles after the 60-day promotional period provided the Account is open and in Good Standing at time of payout. Limit of one Offer per eligible Client. This Offer is non-transferable. Offer may be changed, cancelled or extended at any time. All other Account terms, including the Tangerine Money-Back Rewards program terms, remain unchanged and continue to apply. See the Tangerine Credit Card Cardholder Agreement for more details, including definitions of any capitalized terms.

†Balance Transfer Promotional Offer at 1.95% for 6 months (1% Balance Transfer Fee)
A Promotional Interest Rate of 1.95% will apply immediately to any and all Balance Transfers made within 30 days of the Account opening, and will remain in effect for 6 Statement Periods from the date the last such Balance Transfer was posted to the Account (the "Promotional Rate Period"). If you still have an amount owing from your Balance Transfer when the Promotional Rate Period ends, the Cash Advance interest rate (currently 19.95%) will apply to that balance. A 1% Balance Transfer Fee will be charged on each Balance Transfer amount and will be immediately charged to your Credit Card. This Balance Transfer Fee is waived by Tangerine if you are a resident of the province of Québec at the time you accept this offer. To take advantage of this Promotional Offer, you must complete the Balance Transfer request within 30 days of Account approval. You must also activate your Card within 45 days of Account approval for the requested Balance Transfer to be processed, or the Balance Transfer will be automatically cancelled. Note that if your Balance Transfer amount(s) equal your available credit, then the Balance Transfer Fee will put your Account over your credit limit and may be rejected in whole or in part. Balance Transfers are treated as Cash Advances on your Card and do not have an interest-free grace period. Interest applies from the transaction date that appears on your statement for that Balance Transfer to the date you repay the Balance Transfer in full. It may take a few business days to complete the Balance Transfer request. You should continue to make payments to the other financial institution until the Balance Transfer appears on your statement. You must continue to make the Minimum Payments on your Account, regardless of whether the Balance Transfer has been processed to your Account. Interest does not accrue on the Balance Transfer Fee, however it is included in the Minimum Payment amount on your monthly statement. You must continue to make all of your monthly Minimum Payments by the Payment Due Dates shown on your monthly statements. If you don't make your Minimum Payment by the payment due date as shown on 2 consecutive statements, your interest rate will increase to your higher standard rate that applies to the Account (currently 24.95%). If you pay more than your Minimum Payment on your statement, we'll apply the excess amount of the payment to your balance proportionately based on the interest rate(s) applicable to each group of charges billed on your Account. Please see the Credit Card Cardholder Agreement for more information on how we apply payments to your Account.
We don't charge interest on new Purchases that appear on your statement for the first time if we receive full payment of the Balance on your statement (including payment of any Balance Transfers included in that Balance), by the Payment Due Date on your statement. Balance Transfers may not be used to transfer money to or from another Tangerine Account. See the Information Box at for full details.

Cash Advances (including Balance Transfers) do not earn Tangerine Money-Back Rewards. See the terms and conditions of the Tangerine Money-Back Rewards Program at for full details on other items that do not earn Tangerine Money-Back Rewards.

Any of these offers may be changed or cancelled at any time without notice. Rates and fees are subject to change.
