RBC Rewards take the chill out of holiday shopping

My Mom is one of “those” people. You all know one. Before the pumpkins come out for Halloween, she’s already finished all of her holiday shopping.

Until my daughter was born, I was the complete opposite. Come December 23rd you’d find me in a hectic mall, looking lost as I went from store to store attempting to find awesome gifts for my family and friends. And because I was so stressed from the trip, I also bought a bunch of unnecessary gifts for me as retail therapy, further expanding my holiday gift budget.

Now that I’m a mom my shopping isn’t so last minute (can you imagine trying to navigate a stroller through a mall in its busiest season let alone find a parking spot?). And thanks to RBC Rewards, by starting now, the first week of December, my holidays will be happy and stress-free…even if we just moved into our new home.

Thankfully I have the RBC Rewards Holiday website to assist both my budget and time constraints. I can order gifts (and gift cards!) using my RBC Rewards points online.

RBC Rewards members can earn points the following ways:

1. Earn RBC Rewards points every time you use your RBC Rewards card

2. Shop online through the RBC Rewards eMall at over 250 popular retailers (including The Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy, Sephora, Indigo and more) to earn bonus RBC Rewards points

Throughout the holiday season be sure to follow RBC on Facebook as RBC Rewards will be running a Not-So-Secret Santa Giveaway! Comment on their post and tag a friend who would like the featured item for a chance to win. Three users will be selected to win the item, plus the nominator of the winner will receive 5000 bonus points! Upcoming dates and gifts include: December 5 - DeWalt Drill & Saw and on December 9 – GoPro Hero4 Bundle.

As for a gift for me, how did RBC Rewards KNOW I was looking for a KitchenAid 1.6 cu ft countertop microwave for our new kitchen? It was 40,000 points but right now it's 27,500 points – 30% off. A happy holiday indeed!
How is your holiday shopping going?

  1. I love that they have sales with their points!

  2. I need to look into this further, my husband has an RBC card and we have NEVER used any of his points, imagine what I could buy...I mean him *cough cough* ;) lol

  3. WOW! I never knew RBC did that!! Why have a debit card that does nothing when you can have an RBC card that buys you things!!

  4. This sounds interesting. I really need to check it out more.

  5. I did know they do that. I haven;t checked my points in a bit though. I really need to do so soon.
