New Shell Mosaik MasterCard from BMO Bank of Montreal Fuels Customer Savings



    New card offer gives drivers 5% back on fuel purchases or 300 bonus AIR
    MILES(R)(TM) reward miles.

    TORONTO, March 31 /CNW/ - Canadian drivers can save 5 per cent on all
Shell purchases as part of a new credit card program when they apply and
obtain a BMO card through Shell stations across Canada. At current average
national fuel prices, that represents among the best savings for drivers in
the market.
    Cash back savings and AIR MILES reward miles are being offered as reward
options by BMO Mosaik MasterCard and Shell Canada Products as part of a new
credit card program. BMO and Shell will promote a number of enhanced Mosaik
reward features through Shell Canada's network of 1,600 stations and BMO Bank
of Montreal's 982 branches across Canada.
    Existing BMO Mosaik cardholders who have the Premium CashBack or Gold AIR
MILES reward options will automatically receive the enhanced rewards whenever
they use their card at Shell.
    "The new Shell Mosaik MasterCard from BMO offers Shell customers valuable
savings and rewards as well as high quality fuels and convenience," says Todd
Gulbransen, Customer Loyalty Advisor, Shell Canada Products. "We're raising
the bar by giving our customers credit card loyalty options unmatched in the
industry."
    Following the three-month introductory offer of 5 per cent cash back, the
Shell Mosaik MasterCard's Premium CashBack reward option will provide
customers with ongoing 3 per cent cash back on all card purchases at Shell
stations in Canada and 1 per cent cash back on all other purchases. The
Premium CashBack reward option can total over $200 a year based on a typical
$3,400 yearly Shell fuel spend and $12,000 in annual spending at other
retailers. This option also includes a Roadside Assistance Program valued at
over $50, which covers the Premium CashBack annual fee of $49.
    "Our customers told us they like to be rewarded for everyday purchases,
such as a routine fill up. With our enhanced Mosaik reward programs, BMO and
Shell Canada customers can get fuel as usual but now they'll get unusually
more rewards when they do," says Nancy Marescotti, Director, Card & Retail
Payment Services, BMO Bank of Montreal. "No other card lets you choose your
reward and provides such great value by giving you cash in your pocket or AIR
MILES reward miles."
    As long-time AIR MILES sponsors, Shell Canada and BMO are also enhancing
the reward miles offer on Mosaik's Gold AIR MILES reward option. Customers
will earn double reward miles when they use their card to make purchases at
Shell. This means they'll receive two reward miles for every $15 in Shell
purchases, while still earning one reward mile for every $15 spent on all
other purchases. Plus, customers will continue to earn reward miles for fuel
purchases from Shell Canada when they show their AIR MILES Collector Card.
With the Gold AIR MILES reward option, customers can easily earn 1,000 reward
miles annually (enough for a short-haul return flight) based on a typical
$3,400 yearly Shell fuel spend and $12,000 in annual spending with other
merchants for an annual fee of $90.
