4 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.
