Starbucks and TD Bank Group (TD) Announce Partnership to Bring More Rewards to Canadians
Canadians can now use TD® Aeroplan® Visa Cards to earn more at Starbucks
Your morning coffee just became more rewarding at Starbucks company-operated locations in Canada.* Beginning today, Starbucks Canada announced it has entered into a one-year partnership with TD that will create opportunities for TD Aeroplan Visa cardholders to earn more rewards, including 50% more Aeroplan points with every purchase made at participating Starbucks stores in Canada.
This first-of-its-kind collaboration for Starbucks in Canada creates a significant opportunity to provide customers with more value, combining two of Canada’s most recognized and celebrated rewards programs – Starbucks® Rewards and Air Canada’s Aeroplan program. In addition to earning 50% more Aeroplan points with every eligible Starbucks purchase, TD Aeroplan Visa cardholders can also earn Starbucks Rewards, which can be redeemed for free food and beverages at participating Starbucks stores.
“Starbucks is proud to collaborate with TD to reward our customers in new ways and provide them with another reason to visit Starbucks,” says Peter Furnish, vice president of marketing at Starbucks Canada. “With TD, we are unlocking new opportunities to deepen loyalty and engagement with our customers and Starbucks Rewards members.”
“We're so thrilled to work with Starbucks to offer TD Aeroplan Visa cardholders new ways to accelerate their earning, all while enjoying a cup of coffee or treat from one of the world's most beloved brands,” says Katy Boshart, Senior Vice President, Canadian Credit Cards at TD. “This is just one of the ways we are focused on delivering immediate value to our customers today, which complements the new Aeroplan program and shared travel experiences our customers look forward to in the future.”
Here’s how it works:
Customers who pay with their TD Aeroplan Visa card will earn 50% more Aeroplan points when they load or reload their Starbucks Card or make purchases at participating Starbucks stores in Canada. A list of participating stores can be found here.
Customers can earn both Stars towards Starbucks Rewards and bonus Aeroplan points when they register for Starbucks Rewards and pay one of three ways:
- Add funds to their Starbucks® Card using TD Aeroplan Visa card, then use that Starbucks Card for payment, either at the POS or through the Starbucks app – earn 2 Stars per $1 spent
- Link their TD Aeroplan Visa card as a payment method in the Starbucks app, then use it to mobile order or scan and pay in-store – earn 1 Star per $1 spent
- At the register, open the Starbucks app and use the “Scan to earn” option to scan then pay with their TD Aeroplan Visa card – earn 1 Star per $1 spent
