Is a cash back worth it?
Whether or not a cash back is worth it depends on the cost of the loan including the interest rate, fees, and then deducting any rebate over the term that you will keep it for, which is usually four years.
It is recommended that you first look at the total cost of the loan over four years less any rebate.
