PC Financial "Black" colored mastercard?

Anyone here have one of these? I got notice in the mail I am one of their "most valued customers" (whatever that means) and are sending me one.

Well, I don't have it yet... They just sent me a thank-you card (signed by the President and CEO of PC which is probably just a copy) but the card had a small photo of what it looks like.

Do you mind I ask how much you spend per year in order to become it's "most valued customer"?

I'm assuming you get extra rewards since it says that.

Probably a greater yield of PC points on purchases

No annual fee Black Card, by invitation only. I don't have a PC MC, I guess I won't be invited.

Based on that provided link it's basically

2% return for purchases made at all Loblaw stores (FORTINOS, No Frills, ValuMart, MAXI, Loblaws, RCSS, etc)
1% return for other purchases


Personal opinion: I think PC MC BlackCard attempts to fill in the void for a better return card. Although it's in no way competing with SmartCash, it's still definitely better than most credit cards out there (provided by major banks) that only yield 1% return.

I like their strategy in opening this card as on an invite basis only as this card is also no fee -- in no way they want to see this card to cannibalize their own existing normal PC MC which has achieved tremendous success. What's missing however is the requirement of spending, etc -- they should just tell us what is really needed to get this card? what's the requirement in detail
