Suncor Energy's Petro-Canada brand redesigns Petro-Points™ program

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Jan. 5, 2017) - Petro-Canada, a Suncor business, today announced a redesigned Petro-Points program that is simple, easy to understand and offers increased value to its members.

The Petro-Points program, which launched in 1995, has historically offered its 4.5 million active members multiple ways of earning and redeeming points. Members will continue to have the choice of how to redeem their points, including: taking dollars off of any purchase, redeeming for fuel savings cards, and redeeming for gift cards at partner retailers; however the new program helps members redeem rewards sooner and collect points faster.

"We've been conducting research and online panels to help determine how we can add value to our loyalty program for our members," said Deborah Gullaher, vice president of sales and marketing. "We heard loud and clear that our customers want a program that's easy to understand, simple and intuitive-and most of all a program that gives great value for their Petro-Points. The changes to our program have been made based on what we've heard from loyal customers."

The redesigned Petro-Points program has simplified how members earn and redeem their points. The point levels required to redeem rewards have been reduced, some by 50 per cent, allowing members to redeem their Petro-Points faster.

The new program, which launched on January 3, 2017, is effective across Canada. Current Petro-Points balances will not change and Petro-Points never expire.
