The Esso Extra rewards program awards participants points for purchases made at Esso, which are then used to redeem rewards. Participants swipe their Esso Extra cards each time they make a purchase to earn credit for the transaction. Eligible purchases earn the user one or more Esso Extra points per dollar spent, as of 2015. The points accrue until the member uses them to claim a reward.
Esso Extra rewards program members have the option of redeeming the points at Esso stations or online. To redeem the points online, the user needs to create an account at Essoextra.com. At the station, the participant lets the attendant know which rewards he wants to redeem.
The prize options include discounts on gas, free car washes, Esso gift cards, lottery ticket rewards and hockey items. The in-store rewards offer the participant free items, such as drinks, snacks and items for the car. Each Esso Extra reward item has a set number of points assigned to it. When the user selects a particular item, Esso deducts the corresponding number of Esso Extra points from the user's account.
Esso Extra members can easily track their point balances by creating an online account. Users can see how many points they have and can manage account information online.
