    • 1. How do I earn points?

      You earn Membership Rewards points for eligible purchases charged to your Card. Simply charge your everyday purchases or business expenses to your Card and your points will add up quickly.

    • 2. How are the points I earn calculated?

      To work out how many points you earn, we multiply the Canadian dollar value of each eligible purchase by the earn rate. If the result includes a fraction of a point, we round up or down to the nearest whole point.

      Different Cards have different earn rates. Please click here for a list of earn rates and point calculation examples.

    • 3. How can I earn points quicker?

      Simply follow these three easy steps:
      1. Remember to use your Card for everyday purchases, from gas for your car to magazine subscriptions to dining out. The more you spend on your Card, the more your points can accumulate.
      2. Use your Card to pay your regular bills automatically and you can earn points on the bills you're already paying.
      3. Earn more rewards by sharing many of the benefits of your Card with someone special. Add Supplementary Cards to your account and you will earn points on those purchases too. For more information or to request a Supplementary Personal or Small Business Card application, call 1-800-668-2639 or click to Learn More.
