Cash back is earned on card purchases less returns and not on cash advances, interest, fees, balance transfers, payments and regular CIBC Convenience Cheques. 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. 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.

4 Insurance coverage(s) included with CIBC credit cards are underwritten by Royal & Sun Alliance Insurance Company of Canada (RSA). Different cards will have different coverage(s). To learn about which coverage(s) are included with a specific card, and important information regarding coverage eligibility requirements, benefits, limitations and exclusions, see our Agreements and Insurance page and the insurance certificate(s) in your card package. Some insurance coverage(s) require purchase(s), auto rentals, common carrier fares, hotel or motel and other trip costs to be charged to the card to activate coverage. Other conditions may also apply. Auto Rental Collision and Loss Damage Insurance (CLDI) is available for automobile rentals of up to 48 days. The full cost of the rental must be charged to the card and the rental agency’s Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) or Loss Damage Waiver (LDW) must be declined. CLDI provides coverage up to the actual cash value (ACV) of the rental vehicle as defined in your insurance certificate. Note that some rental agencies may assess their damages at an amount greater than the ACV of the rental vehicle and you may be liable to them for the difference. Before declining the rental agency's CDW or LDW, you should read carefully and compare the terms of the rental agreement, the CLDI insurance certificate in your card package and any other insurance you own to decide which coverage best meets your protection needs. Out-of-Province Emergency Travel Medical Insurance (TMI) covers the primary cardholder, their spouse and dependent children for the first 15 days of a trip if the primary cardholder and covered person is age 64 and under (for all cards that have TMI coverage dependent children must be age 20 or under, unless they have a permanent physical or mental deficiency); TMI may not cover medical procedures performed without pre-approval. TMI and Trip Interruption Insurance may not cover certain pre-existing health or medical conditions. Certain RSA coverages are "excess insurance" (all other sources of insurance and recovery must be exhausted before coverage is available). For more information, call RSA toll-free at 1-866-363-3338 in Canada, continental U.S. and Hawaii or collect from elsewhere at 905-403-3338.
5 Interest rates will change from time to time on at least 30 days prior notice to the primary cardholder. “Purchase” means card purchases less returns and does not include: cash advances, interest, fees, balance transfers, payments, or CIBC Convenience Cheques. "Cash" means cash advances, balance transfers and CIBC Convenience Cheques.
6 Cash advances do not earn cash back. Cash advances bear interest from the date they are taken from your credit card account and are subject to available credit and available cash.
