Petro-Points: Celebrating 25 Years of Rewarding Canadians

1995 was a pretty hoppin’ year. The Toronto Raptors were founded (along with the short-lived Vancouver Grizzlies) and won their very first game by defeating the New Jersey Nets. Due South swept the Geminis. Douglas Coupland’s Microserfs (one of my favourite books) was published. And Petro-Canada launched our loyalty program, Petro-Points.

And now, twenty-five years later, we are one of Canada's top loyalty programs, with more than 4.8 million members. As you know, if you’re a member, you earn Petro-Points for every dollar spent in-store or litre purchased at the pump. And you can redeem points for free stuff like gas, car washes, eGift cards and more.

Rewards have changed a bit since we first started the program. E-gift cards certainly weren’t a thing in 1995; in fact, most Canadian websites weren’t online until 1996. Instead, items like cribbage boards, toaster ovens and golf balls were at the top of our catalog.

Virtual Birthday

When we were planning our birthday celebrations this year, we had a bit of a different picture for 2020 – probably like most of you. But that’s okay; we’ve all learned how to make the best of an unusual situation. Want to share how your birthday was different this year? Tell us at www.petro-points.com/25 for your chance to win one of 250 prizes of one million Petro-Points.

Thank you for being with us for the last twenty-five years.

You've reminded us to pause and soak up the small moments of pure joy. You've grown tremendously and developed quite a personality all your own. Your dad and I like to joke around about what a cute troublemaker you're shaping up to become. We love you abundantly, and can't wait to watch you grow up🥳🥳

I've come to realize that a child's first birthday party is much more for the adults than the child, but I don't think that's a negative thing. It's a gathering of loved ones celebrating how much their lives have been positively changed by a special kiddo. And this time, we were looking forward to celebrating you, my baby🎈🎈

For the sake of being safe and responsible, it didn't happened the way we thought.🎁

But we still managed to celebrate, little one. Your first birthday was not canceled. We still laughed and played and marveled at your being. And so, my baby for not much longer, happy birthday🎉

We made sure you have everything you need in the comfort of our home. We celebrated virtually with our extended family and everyone seemed to be so happy as you turned 1😍

And when you'll be older, we'll laugh and reminisce about you turning one while the world was quarantined. It'll certainly be one for the baby book.

It'll certainly be one we will always remember.

We love you💝

Happiest Birthday my boy Kabir🎂🍭🍬🥂

Le 6mars prochain j’aurai 68 ans. Il y a des années que j’utis Les points de Petro canada Et j’ai toujours été très satisfaite car vous m’avez sauvé beaucoup de sous. À l’aube de mes 68 ans, et encore en pleine pandémie,je n’ose espérer une fête grandiose. Cependant ma fille unique qui a comme métier de former les infirmières dans la région de Québec ainsi que mon charmant gendre policier et mes adorables petites-filles me réserverons à leur manière une fête sécuritaire mais sûrement originale de souligner mon 68e anniversaire.
Comme mon dernier anniversaire remonte trop loin à mon goût je préfère penser à celui qui s’en vient en me disant avec. Confiance que j’aurai sûrement le bonheur de les voir en réel. C’est mon vœux le plus cher et le plus beau cadeau à espérer.


On my birthday we kept to our small family bubble so we ordered in pizza and wings. We had home made spice cake which had pumpkin puree in the recipe. Lights were turned out while the cake was brought in then they sang the happy birthday song. The gifts were lovely and I am so glad we are safe and well.
