Bonus Categories

The BMO CashBack Mastercard has two bonus categories which are grocery and recurring bill payments. The grocery and recurring bill payment categories both have their own separate spend caps of $500 per statement cycle period. Once you hit the cap, you'll earn at the non-category rate for the remainder of the statement cycle. There's no limit to the amount of cash back you can earn with the BMO CashBack Mastercard overall.
