Canada based TELUS & CIBC Team Up to Add Value to Customers’ Purchases

TELUS and CIBC have announced the launch of CIBC TELUS Rewards Visa card, a new co-branded credit card that delivers rewards options to TELUS and CIBC customers. TELUS is one of Canada's fastest-growing national telecommunications companies. CIBC is a leading Canada-based global financial institution with 11 million personal banking and business clients.

Part of the new TELUS Rewards Program and an extension of CIBC's broad line-up of credit cards, the CIBC TELUS Rewards Visa card will offer TELUS loyalty rewards to clients on their everyday spending.

Customers can earn reward points on everyday card purchases which can be redeemed for a selection of TELUS products and services including the latest smartphones and tablets, to make charitable donations, and buy travel passes and TELUS prepaid cards that can be used on a variety of products, including wireless accessories.

"As part our commitment to put customers first in everything we do, we are constantly looking for new ways to enhance our customers' experience while also making their lives easier," said Drazen Lalovic, Vice President, Emerging Markets and Capital Planning, TELUS, in an official press release. "Not only does this program bring customers more value for their everyday spending, it also gives them a new way to save on their next TELUS purchase, whether they're upgrading their device, activating a tablet, buying a new wireless accessory, donating to a charity or more."
