Canadian Tire Triangle Rewards Program
In 2015, Canadian Tire launched the Triangle Rewards program. In addition to this program, there is the Canadian Tire Money rewards program which has been active since 1922. Many Canadians are familiar with this incentive because it features literal money tender. Physical Canadian Tire Money features a fictitious character named Sandy McTire. He has a stylish waxed moustache and is presumed to represent the everyday blue-collar worker in Canada in the 20s. The idea to implement Canadian Tire Money came from Muriel Billes, the wife of Canadian Tire’s first president and co-founder, Alfred J. Billes. Customers can still collect and redeem using Canadian Tire Money, but there is greater emphasis on the Triangle Rewards program now.
If you’re a regular shopper at Canadian Tire or their affiliated partners, you may be interested in becoming a Triangle Rewards member.
