† You must apply and be approved for a new CIBC Dividend® Visa* Card / CIBC Dividend® Visa* Card for Students between July 1, 2019 and October 31, 2019 to qualify for this offer.
If you apply and are approved for a new CIBC Dividend® Visa* Card / CIBC Dividend® Visa* Card for Students, you will receive 5% cash back on the net purchases posted to your account within the first 4 monthly statement periods or $2,000 in total net purchases (equal to $100 cash back), whichever comes first, when at least one eligible regularly recurring bill payment is posted to your account during the first 4 monthly statement periods. The promotional rate of 5% will only be applied on all purchases made after a regularly recurring bill payment is posted to your account. Recurring bill payments are set up and billed automatically by the merchant to your credit card account (including any authorized users) on a monthly or regular basis. If a payment is not set up by the merchant as a pre-authorized regularly recurring bill payment, then the payment will not be recognized and will not qualify. Not all merchants offer regularly recurring bill payments. Please check with your merchant for availability and set up of regularly recurring bill payments on Visa cards. Examples of merchants who offer regularly recurring bill payments: phone companies, cable TV providers, newspapers, gyms, insurance companies and utility companies.
Regular cash back rate(s) do not apply on purchases which the promotional rate of 5% applies. Cash back is earned on purchases less returns and credits. For this offer the following do not qualify as purchases: cash advances, balance transfers, CIBC Convenience Cheques, fees, interest, and payments. The cash back is accumulated each month and will appear on your statement no later than the month after it is earned. Cash back is awarded at the end of the year as a credit on your December statement.
Offer applies to newly approved card accounts only; transfers from an existing CIBC credit card to a CIBC Dividend® Visa* Card are excluded. This offer is not transferable. This offer may be withdrawn or changed without prior notice at any time. This offer may be revoked if you appear to be manipulating or abusing it, or are engaged in any suspicious or fraudulent activity, as determined by CIBC in its sole discretion.
1 Cash back is earned on a tiered basis on card purchases less returns and not on cash advances, interest, fees, balance transfers, payments or CIBC Convenience Cheques. Cash back is calculated as follows: on the first $6,000 in net annual card purchases excluding grocery on your account, the cash back earned is 0.5%; on amounts greater than $6,000 in net annual purchases excluding grocery the cash back earned is 1%. Earn 2% cash back on purchases (less returns) at merchants classified by the credit card network as grocery stores. All other purchases earn cash back at the regular tiered rate. The 2% cash back offer is only available on the first $6,000 in net annual card purchases at grocery merchants on your account; after that, net card purchases at grocery merchants will earn cash back at 1%. The $6,000 limit will reset to zero after the day your December statement is printed. Terms, conditions and eligible merchant categories may change without notice. Deductions of cash back for returns are made at the earn rate applicable at the time the return occurs. Credits for returns made on your account may result in a deduction of cash back at a higher earn rate, even though the return may relate to a purchase that earned cash back at a lower rate. The cash back is accumulated each month, beginning with the January Visa statement, and awarded at the end of the year as a credit on the December statement or, in limited circumstances, at such other time as may be permitted by CIBC. Credit card account must be open and in good standing at the time the cash back is awarded. Cash back will be credited to the primary cardholder's account.
