    MBNA SmartCash

    Hi,

    Does anybody know what qualifies as grocery purchase (for 3%) for this card?
    What about Tim Horton's, LCBO etc?
    Would my local specialty food store qualify as groceries?
    Is there a list available somewhere?
    Thanks
    DM

    No, it's just the major grocery chains. Mom and pop stores, special markets and LCBO are not considered grocery stores. Also they do not consider walmart a grocery store either. I'll try and look the list up for you, somebody posted it one time on RFD.

    i have seen some purchases at local grocery stores that are not on their list also qualify for the 3%. i guess as long as the store name says grocery, it might be fine...

    And in pretty much all of the US.
    You can buy wine at a Wal-Mart in the US

    Guess where it isn't - in Ontario.
    Kudos to the govt. monopoly and unionized LCBO.

    Thanks for posting I was wondering what qualified too.
    I applied for this card 3-4 weeks ago online. If I have not heard from them does this mean that I was turned down? Oh well I am not that unhappy with current cash back card.

    PS why do I still have to do image verification? My eyes aren't that good.

    They can be slow sometimes in approving people and sending out the card. Just call in and you'll find out what's up.

    Also, Walmarts may qualify for the 3% if they are a Supercentre (they have a grocery section).

    Right off a recent MBNA rewards statement of mine:

    Code:
    WAL-MART SUPERCENTE - WINDSOR, ON Bonus Points 	 $5.27 	 15.81
      	  	  	BASE: WAL-MART SUPERCENTE - WINDSOR, ON 	  	5.27
      	  	  	BONUS: Smart Cash 3x Points on Gas & Groceries (mcc specific) 	  	10.54
