[ANALYSIS] Discount WebDiscount

Back with another post on car rental loyalty programs! Discount partners with Petro-Canada to help frequent car renters earn points quicker. Every $1 spent on vehicle rentals from participating Discount locations, you will earn 10 Petro-Points. If you redeem 10,000 Petro-Points, then you will receive a $10 discount on rentals.

By signing up for the WebDiscount program offered by Discount, you will receive 2,500 bonus Petro-Points.

Below are highlights of the WebDiscount program:

  • Webdiscount allows you to receive notifications on low rates for weekend travel in advance.
  • When you rent any car or minivan for two weekends, you will receive the third weekend free.
  • Free weekend are not redeemable during blackout dates and reservations must be made 48 hours in advance.
  • There is a free customer pick-up available if you are living within a certain geographical radius from the location you are being picked up from.

Out of the recent car rental loyalty programs I have written on, I feel the Discount loyalty program has the least flexibility, which also becomes less enticing for me to try it out. First of all, I don’t travel by car enough to make Petro-Points valuable to my mileage accounts. Secondly, it seems almost impossible to reach enough points for a discounted car rental worthy of my time and efforts (redeeming 10,000 Petro-Points for a $10 discount). Finally, there aren’t any special services or status given to frequent Discount clients similar to other car rental loyalty programs. I don’t think I will be giving this program a try.
