TD Bank Launches New Ameritrade Credit Card – $100 Bonus + Up To 1.65% Cash Back On All Purchases

Yesterday TD Bank launched the TD Ameritrade credit card. I had high hopes for this card given that TD Bank has offered bonuses of up to $200 and 5% categories in the past. Unfortunately those hopes have not been met, this card is incredibly underwhelming. Let’s have a look at the main marketing points:

  • $100 cash bonus when you spend $500 or more within three months
  • 1.5% cash back on all purchases
  • 10% bonus on all cash back earned if you redeem into a TD Ameritrade account. This means you could earn a maximum of 1.65% cash back
  • No annual fee
  • Visa signature

I can’t see any compelling reasons to sign up for this card, there are cards with much higher cash sign up bonuses and plenty of cards that earn at 2% cash back or higher. Even the Discover it card earns 2% cash back on all purchases for the next twelve months and a $100 sign up bonus and 10% rotating categories.

Hopefully TD Bank decide to up the ante at some stage and at least offer a sign up bonus of $200.

I was hoping it would replace my BofA travel rewards. Unfortunately, It charges 3% foreign transaction fee. Do you know any $0 annual fee cards offer better rebates?

This is a scam. I activated my TD credit card as soon as I received same and charged well over $500 within the first two months. I never received the $100 rebate. I just called and was told I did not use the card in a timely fashion. I advised I activated the card as soon as I received same. I’m livid. I canceled the card and will be taking all my money out of the Smithtown branch of TD Bank.

The closest I’ve gotten to getting this ‘TDAmeritrade’ card (which it isn’t, it’s toronto dominium bank) is calling this bank and getting their ‘legendary service’, which was being advised to hold for at least 20 min.

The quicker route asked for my user name and password at TDAmeritrade – which no way am I giving them (whoever) that. 🙂

I just received a marketing piece in my statement announcing $0 foreign transaction fees on this card.
