TORONTO, Dec. 16, 2015 /CNW/ - Home Trust Company, a wholly owned subsidiary of Home Capital Group Inc. (TSX: HCG), today announced that it has joined forces with Giant Tiger, Canada's leading discount retailer, to launch the new Giant Tiger Rewards Visa card. The Giant Tiger Rewards Visa card offers customers the ability to earn valuable rewards on all their purchases, every time they use the card.
"Home Trust is pleased to be the issuer of this unique credit card program," said Martin Reid, President of Home Trust. "Giant Tiger is a leading brand with a very loyal customer base and this new Visa program is the latest example of the value Giant Tiger provides to its shoppers."
The card comes with no annual fee and rewards are earned on all purchases whether made at Giant Tiger or elsewhere. The potential to earn rewards is unlimited and points never expire before being automatically converted to Giant Tiger gift cards once point totals reach certain levels.
"At Giant Tiger, we strive to deliver outstanding value to Canadian families, and with Giant Tiger's Rewards Visa card, our customers are provided with an additional way to save money," added Thomas Haig, President and COO of Giant Tiger Stores Limited. "Home Trust worked closely with the Giant Tiger team to design and implement this program and we are thrilled to offer this exciting rewards program to our many customers."
Home Trust has been a Visa issuer since introducing its first Visa card in 2000. Home Trust offers a range of credit cards including unsecured, pre-paid and cash-secured cards, and its Equityline Visa product.
The new Giant Tiger Rewards Visa is being offered initially at select Giant Tiger locations in southern Ontario.
