The quality of journalism at MoneySense gets worse all the time!

Agreed- ever since they got bought out by Ratehub they push their sponsored credit cards from Ratehub

The "Best for Costco shoppers" recommendation is completely off.

The recommended RBC Cash Back MasterCard would only give back ½% or 1% at Costco.

Costco does not have the merchant category code (MCC) for grocery stores. Marnie and I found out earlier that Costco has MCC 5300, for the category "Wholesale Clubs", and not MCC 5411 for "Grocery Stores".

They also appear to ignore the Rogers World Elite Master Card. No annual fees, 2% cash back on Rogers services, 1.75% back on everything else Canadian, plus 4% back on foreign currency purchases.

Hello. I am sorry I posted this. I did not realize that Rate Hub owned Money Sense. No doubt a biased write up. Years ago I had a Money Sense subscription and found some value from it. But since being here.....has much much more value. And never did like Rate Hub because it appears they only list FIs that patronize Rate Hub.

No need to apologize. It's interesting to see what they're up to, and keeps our wits sharp finding the weaknesses!

RateHub bought MoneySense in December 2018:

NewsWire.ca (Nov 29, 2018): Ratehub Inc. Acquires MoneySense

Sometimes what appears to be unbalanced and biased writing is actually sloppy research or lack of expertise. So, it may not be actually bias from RateHub, but the lower quality work from some of the contributors.
