In an earlier post we introduced the Extra Privileges fuel savings card offered by Esso which helps increase your savings in gas. To begin using your Extra Privileges card, the first step you will need to do is pick up one at your local Esso station. After this has been done, you will need to follow the instructions on the brochure to activate the card, in which you will then receive an email verifying confirmation of activation.
Follow the link below to link your Esso Extra card and Extra Privileges fuel savings reward card to start saving!
How the card works is that once you have activated the card, you will need to load the offers sent from Esso onto the Extra Privileges card (for example: purchase a gas station item, purchase a car wash, etc.). This will entitle you to a savings of 2.5 cents per the specified amount of litres gas filled. Linking your Esso Extra and Extra Privileges card will maximize your savings at Esso stations.
For those who are already collecting Esso Extra points, this becomes extremely attractive, however the drawback seems to be that you will have to go inside to process the offers and redeem the bonus on your Extra Privileges card. If you have a Speedpass, this card seems to defeat the purpose. My one concern is, if your gas station item ends up costing more than what you save in gas then you are better off collecting points from Esso Extra or Aeroplan. It is always important to weigh out your options to see which one will maximize your rewards.
