The new Petro-Points program essentially has two earning rates, one for the fuel you buy and one for purchases made in store. For fuel purchases you'll earn 10 Points per litre which for most consumers is double what it offered before for regular clean fuel (was 5 points per litre) and slightly more for mid-grade (was 7 points per litre) In-store you'll earn 10 points per dollar spent this is significant to note and we'll cover this in a post later this week. The in-store was 20 points per dollar previously, which depending on how you redeemed those points was equivalent to the new 10 points per dollar but in some cases the old rate provided a better return when redeeming for select rewards like gift cards.
Overall its nice to see Petro-Canada move their rewards program to a simpler structure. The program has become more rewarding for those who are buying regular or mid-grade fuel but on the other end for some it may be less rewarding for those who were making in-store purchases and redeeming for gift cards.
