PC Optimum points now available at Esso stations across the country
PC Optimum members can now fill up on PC Optimum points at more than 4,500 locations on purchases of gas, convenience, or groceries.
BRAMPTON, ON, Aug. 9, 2018 /CNW/ - Starting today, Loblaw Companies Limited (Loblaw) and Imperial Oil (Imperial) are kicking off a new season of savings. Canadians can earn more points in more places – getting rewarded for almost all their everyday purchases of food, beauty products and gas – now that PC Optimum points are available at over 2,000 Esso and Mobil stations across the country.
"There are currently close to 13 million Canadians participating in the PC Optimum program that come to us expecting exceptional convenience and value," said Jim Noteboom, Senior Vice President, Loyalty, Loblaw Companies Limited. "The addition of the Esso and Mobil brands to the program provides a powerful earning opportunity for our members, with more than 4,500 locations across the country now awarding points."
PC Optimum members can now earn 10 points per litre on fuel, and 10 points per dollar spent on eligible convenience and car wash purchases at Esso stations. Registered members will also receive targeted offers allowing them to earn faster. Using a President's Choice Financial Mastercard® to pay for fuel at Esso stations, not only simplifies the experience by combining loyalty and payment in a single swipe, but will also accelerate the earnings potential to at least 30 points per litre. The PC Optimum program will continue unchanged at Mobil stations.
PC Optimum points can be redeemed for almost anything at close to 2,500 Loblaw and Shoppers Drug Mart banner stores including Real Canadian Superstore, Atlantic Superstore, City Market, No Frills, Independent, Zehrs, Loblaws, Shoppers Home Health Care and online at Loblaw-owned grocery websites, joefresh.com and beautyboutique.ca.
"The availability of the PC Optimum program at Esso and Mobil stations provides Canadians with a fantastic opportunity to accelerate their ability to earn points in one of Canada's largest loyalty programs," says Yan Côté, Retail Fuels Manager at Imperial. "Imperial is excited to provide Canadians with more opportunities to realize value."
The PC Optimum program launched February 1, 2018, bringing together two of Canada's favourite loyalty programs, PC Plus and Shoppers Optimum. The program provides weekly personalized offers and exclusive point-earning and redemption events at stores across the country.
