Recurring payments are typically telecommunication, insurance, membership, subscriptions, etc. purchases. Not all merchants offer recurring payments.

Some merchants may sell these products/services or are separate merchants who are located on the premises of these merchants, but are classified by Visa in another manner, in which case this added benefit would not apply. You will earn 1% cash back on purchases made after you have reached the 3% $50,000 annual spend maximum and on all other eligible purchases made with the card.
You will benefit from an interest-free grace period of at least 25 days on new purchases that appear on your statement for the first time if you pay off your balance in full by the payment due date.
