Last week, we detailed a BMO & Shell offer to save you money at the pumps this summer.
Well, the gas station savings offers don’t end there.
Esso stations are offering the ability to earn bonus rewards while filling up as well.
Earn 5x the rewards when you use the Speedpass+ app
From now until September 30th, you can earn 5x the rewards when you use the Speedpass+ app to pay for your fuel at Esso stations.
This offer is available to both loyalty programs that can be used at Esso – PC Optimum and Esso Extra.
What will you earn? This is the breakdown for each program:
- 50 PC Optimum points per litre, or
- 5 Esso Extra points per $1 spent.
The program you use is up to you – either one provides a great return on your fuel purchases.
For simplicity, if you collect PC Optimum points, that translates into a future savings of 5 cents per litre. Assuming a price of $1.25 per litre, that’s a 4% return on your gas:
(0.05 / 1.25) x 100 = 4%
It’s a great offer considering all you have to do is use the Esso mobile app.
How do you use the Speedpass+ app? This site gives you the details, including links to installing the app on your iPhone or Android device.
