A credit card can be your quick and easy go-to for covering anything from the smallest of day-to-day transactions, to paying for your important purchases. But beyond being a safe and practical payment option, a credit card can get you a whole lot of added benefits—if you know what to look for.
Whether you’re thinking about getting your first credit card or shopping for a new one, by understanding your options and needs, you can find the card that’s best for you. We’ve put this guide together to help connect you with the right credit card.
Every credit card is unique, so before you apply, it’s important to consider how you’re going to use yours—then find the right match for your needs and budget.
If you’re looking for an entry-level product to help build your credit or a second card in wallet for a safety net, a no annual fee credit card might be perfect for you. A no fee card is also a popular choice for those who don’t spend a lot on their credit card. If you’re a student or new to Canada, this can be a great option. With the Laurentian Bank Visa* Reward Me1 credit card, you can enjoy the benefits of a no fee card while still earning points on all your purchases.

It’ll help you pay for your purchases and save on interest. Benefit from a low interest rate of 12.49% on purchases with the Laurentian Bank Visa* Reduced Rate1 credit card.
