We asked and you responded! What a turn out this year for the Canada's Choice portion of Rewards Canada's Canada's Top Travel Rewards Credit Card feature! Back in March, the Rewards Canada picks were released and then from October 1st to 31st we asked you, the Canadian public to vote for your favourite cards. We had 18,179 votes cast this year, nearly 1,000 more than in 2013! Thank you Canada for coming out and voting!

Unlike the year before when the large turn out had RBC break American Express' stranglehold on their dominance in the rankings, this large turn was more spread out amongst the voting options. In the end American Express regained many of the spots they lost last year to RBC and ended up grabbing 4 out of the top 5 categories. The WestJet RBC Mastercards dominated the airline category once again and we were quite surprised that the TD Aeroplan Cards didn't fair better. In fact its CIBC doppelganger took in more votes to finish ahead. We think this can be attributed to the TD card being a relative newcomer and also not offering anything new or exciting in the marketplace. You can tell TD is really trying to build up the Aeroplan portfolio as we've seen the TD Aeroplan Visa Infinite Card go from 15,000 bonus miles to 25,000 miles and the first year free in an attempt to gain more customers.

When it comes to our ranking we break down the large contingent of over 80 travel rewards credit cards in Canada into five main categories:
1. Top Travel Points Credit Card (with annual fee)
2. Top Travel Points Credit Card (with no annual fee)
3. Top Hybrid Travel Credit Card (with annual fee)
4. Top Airline Credit Card
5. Top Hotel Points Credit Card

It is interesting to see how these rankings compare to Rewards Canada's. The power of large coalition programs (Air Miles and Aeroplan) size of large banks (RBC) and social media presence (American Express) definitely affected the outcome of the rankings as people voted for the cards they have in their wallet even if there may be other cards that are better. But as we always state on Rewards Canada and despite our rankings each year, the best credit card out there is the one that is best for you individually whether or not others look better on paper or if more people voted for another card.
