Offer applies to newly approved card accounts only; transfers from an existing CIBC credit card to a CIBC Dividend Platinum® Visa* Card are excluded. This offer is not transferable.

A one-time annual fee rebate for you (the primary cardholder) and up to three authorized users added at the time of the application. This offer does not apply to annual fees for authorized users that are added after you submit your application. This offer applies for the first year only. If your application for an eligible card is not approved, you may be considered for another card (as disclosed in your credit card application). If you are approved for that card, this annual fee rebate offer will apply in the amount of the annual fee, if any, of the alternate card. If you qualify, the rebate will be awarded to you and will appear as a credit against the applicable annual fee(s) within two statements. Your new credit card account must be open and in good standing at time the rebate is awarded.
The cash back is accumulated each month, beginning with the January statement and ending with the December statement. Only Primary Cardholders are permitted to make a cash back redemption. Authorized Users are not eligible to redeem cash back dollars. The Primary Cardholder may redeem cash back at any time during the year provided they have a minimum cash back balance of $25 at the time the redemption request is made. The minimum cash back redemption amount is $25. Cash back will be credited to the Primary Cardholder’s account within 5 days of the date the redemption request is made. Any cash back amount that is not redeemed by the Primary Cardholder by the last day of the period covered by your December statement will be automatically redeemed, resulting in your cash back balance being reset to zero, and applied as a credit on your next statement, or, in limited circumstances, at such other time as may be permitted by CIBC. CIBC is not required to credit your account with cash back earned during a monthly statement period if your credit card account is not open and in good standing at any time during a monthly statement period. Credit card account must also be open and in good standing at the time the cash back is redeemed.
