$20 Million in Benefits Offered to 407 ETR Customers as Loyalty Program Enters Year Three

    TORONTO, Jan. 30 /CNW/ - 407 ETR has extended $20 million in benefits
during the first two years of its rewards program, and will continue to offer
free kilometres and instant gas savings to personal transponder customers who
frequently use Highway 407 ETR.
    "ETR Rewards" is a tiered loyalty program that provides customers with
free 407 ETR kilometres and instant savings on their gas purchases at
Petro-Canada sites. 407 ETR's most frequent customers could see savings
equalling up to 15 percent of their monthly bill. There is no enrolment
process or membership fee - eligible customers are automatically enrolled and
notified by mail.
    "Saving 9 cents-per-litre on gas is a great benefit of ETR Rewards. Our
customers are seeing significant savings at the pump and appreciate the
program more then ever," said Antonio de Santiago, President and Chief
Executive Officer of 407 ETR. "I encourage customers to keep using their gas
savings card to take full advantage of the program as our way of saying
    "For many customers, they can enter the program or move up a tier by
simply taking just one more trip each week on 407 ETR," added de Santiago.
    There are currently over 135,000 customers in the program. Every month,
eligible customers can receive up to 140 free kilometres on Saturdays and
Sundays and can instantly save up to 9 cents-per-litre on the price they pay
for gas.
    To be eligible for ETR Rewards, customers must have a personal account
with at least one light vehicle transponder, have no outstanding balance
greater than 35 days on their account and travel more than an average of 400
kilometres per month during a qualifying six-month period. At the end of each
six-month period, customers will be advised of their tier status for the next
phase of the program.

manager of Highway 407, which extends 108 kilometres east-west, just north of
