How to Apply for the National Bank Platinum MasterCard

If you reside in Canada and you’d like to obtain a new credit card, the National Bank Platinum MasterCard might be the right choice for you. This credit option is part of the travel series that is available from National Bank which enables cardholders to earn points that can be redeemed and put towards flights, hotel rooms, car rentals, and much more. This card has a fixed APR of 19.99% (APR is subject to change) and an annual fee of $125. While the APR is slightly high compared to other cards on the market, the annual fee is extremely high and I am hesitant to recommend this card based on that alone. However, if you plan on using this card to make the majority of your purchases, the points that you can earn may make up for the above average yearly fee. Should you still feel inclined to add this card to your wallet, we have provided a tutorial on the application process below. Scroll down to get started.

Take a moment to review National Bank’s privacy policy before submitting any sensitive information into the online portal.
