All about Canadian Tire’s Triangle Rewards program
Participating locations of these stores are partnered with Canadian Tire in its Triangle Rewards loyalty program. For consumers, this is good news. Canadian Tire has loads of experience with customer rewards—they’re the inventors of Canadian Tire Money (CT Money), the granddaddy of Canadian rewards programs. Introduced way back in 1958, Canadian Tire Money (coupons printed to look like currency) offered customers a way to save on in-store purchases as a reward for their patronage; when you made a purchase, you were handed CT Money to use in lieu of cash on a future visit.
Today, through the Triangle Rewards program, collectors can accumulate CT Money digitally at Canadian Tire stores, at participating partner stores and online. The 2018 introduction of the program digitized the CT Money concept, allowing Triangle members to collect CT Money at more retailers and at a better rate.
There are two ways to join the Triangle program: become a Triangle Mastercard cardholder, or register for Triangle Rewards with the downloadable app or a physical loyalty card. In both cases, members receive digital CT Money automatically on every purchase. But here’s where the paths diverge: Loyalty cardholders earn at a rate of 0.4% at Canadian Tire and its affiliates, while Triangle Mastercard account holders earn 10 times that amount (4.0%)—and they can earn on every purchase, anywhere.
What’s more, in 2023, the company introduced Triangle Select, a premium subscription program. Triangle Select allows you to earn ten times the CT Money on everyday purchases made with your Triangle Mastercard, in addition to your regular in-store Triangle credit card rewards. The program costs $89 per year (plus tax).
