Petro-Canada and RBC team up on in­no­va­tive loy­alty ben­e­fits and sav­ings

The McLeod River Post - - The Patch -

This fall, two of Canada’s iconic brands work to­gether to rein­vent how Cana­di­ans save on fuel and par­tic­i­pate in the Petro-Points and RBC Re­wards pro­grams

In an­other Cana­dian first, Petro-Canada, a Sun­cor En­ergy busi­ness and Royal Bank of Canada (“RBC”), have an­nounced an in­no­va­tive new pro­gram that al­lows Cana­di­ans to in­stantly save on fuel and earn points across both loy­alty pro­grams with a sin­gle swipe of any per­sonal or busi­ness RBC credit or debit card.

Start­ing Oc­to­ber 31, RBC clients will be able to link their Petro-Points card to any per­sonal or busi­ness RBC debit or credit card to in­stantly re­ceive 3¢ per litre fuel sav­ings and earn 20 per cent more Petro-Points on pur­chases made at Petro-Canada. RBC Re­wards credit card hold­ers will also earn 20 per cent more RBC Re­wards points on their Petro-Canada pur­chases. Un­like other loy­alty pro­grams where the ben­e­fits are lim­ited to a spe­cific card Cana­di­ans will be able to use every RBC card in their wal­let to save in­stantly on fuel and earn more re­wards points. Clients sim­ply need to link their Petro-Points card to their RBC pro­file on­line once by vis­it­ing the se­cure RBC web­site, rbc.com/petro-canada.

“This an­nounce­ment is about de­liv­er­ing value to Cana­di­ans through a seam­less, sim­ple and con­ve­nient ex­pe­ri­ence, no mat­ter what type of RBC card they choose to pay with,” says Sean Amato-Gauci, Ex­ec­u­tive Vice Pres­i­dent, Cards, Pay­ments & Bank­ing, RBC. “To­gether with Petro-Canada, we’ve cre­ated a unique pro­gram that pro­vides Cana­di­ans with great sav­ings on fuel pur­chases, bonus re­wards points and ac­cess to the ben­e­fits of our mar­ket-lead­ing credit and debit so­lu­tions. We’re chang­ing the loy­alty land­scape - our in­no­va­tive link­ing ex­pe­ri­ence will pro­vide sig­nif­i­cant sav­ings and value to more than 12 mil­lion RBC and Petro-Canada cus­tomers, with­out re­quir­ing them to ap­ply for a spe­cific card.”

This strate­gic, long-term re­la­tion­ship be­tween RBC and Petro-Canada rep­re­sents a unique op­por­tu­nity for two of Canada’s iconic brands to work to­gether for the ben­e­fit of Cana­dian con­sumers. As part of this an­nounce­ment, more than 500 RBC-branded ATMs will be rolled out to Petro-Canada lo­ca­tions across Canada over the next six months.

“This is all about in­creas­ing the value of what we of­fer our guests and mak­ing it sim­ple to save money. We are ex­cited to team up with RBC to of­fer an in­te­grated so­lu­tion that al­lows our guests to re­ceive more in­stant fuel sav­ings, earn bonus Petro-Points and re­deem points with the same card. Even though their card won’t look any dif­fer­ent, their RBC credit or debit card will now serve as a Petro-Points card,” says Deborah Gul­la­her, Vice Pres­i­dent, Sales and Mar­ket­ing, Sun­cor. “Our guests told us that they are look­ing for choice and a fi­nan­cial part­ner that pro­vides ex­tra value. We be­lieve that by work­ing with RBC to of­fer our guests a greater choice in pay­ment, while they earn points faster, is the so­lu­tion.”

To link a Petro-Points card to an RBC pro­file on Oc­to­ber 31, clients sim­ply need to visit rbc. com/petro-canada, en­ter their on­line bank­ing cre­den­tials and Petro-Points card num­ber, agree to the terms and con­di­tions, and that’s it. Within two busi­ness days clients will start re­ceiv­ing in­stant fuel sav­ings and bonus points when they shop at Petro-Canada with an RBC pay­ment card or the RBC Wal­let.
