Options for a MasterCard in Canada include the Standard MasterCard, World MasterCard and World Elite MasterCard, according to the official MasterCard website. As of 2015, benefits of these credit cards include an extended warranty, price protection, purchase assurance and a satisfaction guarantee.
MasterCard users can lengthen the warranty period of certain purchases for up to one year, explains MasterCard.ca. Price protection means cardholders who use their eligible MasterCard cards can obtain a refund for any price difference after finding a cheaper price for new merchandise within 60 days of the purchase date. They can also receive payments for damaged or stolen items within 90 days of the purchase date.
The Maestro logo on bank cards enables users to pay directly in more than 13 million locations across the globe, reports MasterCard's Canadian website. Moreover, MasterCard users dissatisfied with products they bought using their eligible cards can get refunds of up to $250 each.
Users of Canadian-issued MasterCard cards enjoy the Zero Liability benefit, which protects them in case of unauthorized use of their cards, notes the website. Other benefits of having a MasterCard include concierge services, such as personal assistance with finding rare items, purchasing and delivering gifts, buying tickets, and making dinner reservations.
