“Canadians have a lot of options when it comes to credit cards. It’s easy to get overwhelmed and just go with the first one they see, but they’ll be missing out on some major rewards if they do,” said Stephen Weyman, Co-Founder of creditcardGenius. “Our comparison engine was built to cut through the noise and get consumers what they need in the simplest way possible: a number out of 5.”
