I received this via email today. Effective Aug 1, 2020, Triangle Mastercard will be adding the new rate of 1.5% back in CT money on grocery purchases, excluding Costco & Walmart. But the rate will be reduced on purchases outside of their participating retailers to 0.5% from 0.8%.

I currently only use my Triangle card two ways:
- at Canadian Tire retailers to collect 4% in CT money;
- to pay property taxes and utility bills without incurring fees, with the added bonus of collecting a small amount of CT money.

I currently use an Airmiles World Elite Mastercard for all other purchases and that seems to be working out even with its annual fees. I have collected and used over $2000 in Airmiles Cash to buy groceries since January 2019.

Oh well, back to Tangerine for groceries. (2%)
Triangle is still good for gas at CT gasbars = 5c/litre

I got that too. If you follow the link to the "5411" merchants, Walmart is at the top of the list, so It's confusing. They say it's excluded but it is in the list.

I think this is just for the regular Triangle card.. No changes to World Elite version.

Did the regular Triangle card give more for Groceries in the past?

You're right - this info is for the regular Triangle card. You currently only receive 0.8% back on any purchases made anywhere other than at the Canadian Tire group of participating retailers where you receive 4%. So they will be increasing grocery store purchases to 1.5% (with the Walmart & Costco exceptions) but reducing everything else to 0.5%.

I have the World Elite and I suspect they are going to change the rates for that one eventually!
