General questions about credit cards


Applying for or replacing a credit card

What do I need to apply for a credit card?

To apply for a card, you must have reached the age of majority in your province or territory of residence.

Sometimes a parent or legal guardian can co-sign a credit card agreement. They can be held responsible for any unpaid, outstanding balances. Contact us. We're here to help you find the right financing product for your needs.

If I switch credit cards, will my minimum payment change?

If you got your current card after August 1, 2019, your minimum payment will be 5% on regular purchases, cash advances and interest calculated on the balance. Even if you change cards, your minimum payment percentage won't change.

If you have a low-rate card that you started using before August 1, 2019, your minimum payment percentage is under 5%. If you switch cards, your minimum payment percentage will go up to 5%.

Note that any monthly payments for Accord D financing and the option to pay in installments are included in the minimum payment.
