I agree with some of the others. $5 for a car wash is a great deal.

If anyone actually tests this, I'd be curious which level of car wash can be purchased for 5000 points. Their deluxe carwash is something like $16 +HST, so getting that for $5 would be really hot...

I would presume you would have to go into the store to redeem for the code, since you can only redeem at the pump/store

I should have said , is purchase of an minimum amount of fuel necessary or can just buy a wash with points?

As per T&C's, no fuel purchase necessary. The promo is one or the other.

Little selfish but ... That's $5 (or less) for a wash, depending on how you earned your points.

According to T&C's, you have to pay tax on the full price of the wash. So if the highest wash is $17.99, it would be $2.34 + 5000 PCO points, making it $7.34 total (1000 PCO = $1), so 64% off.

Sure, but considering I will never wash my car for more than $10 in my life, this is a hot deal still lol
Thanks for the math!

Me neither! Usually I never wash my car. But I just got a new one this week. Midnight Black. Things a freakin' dust magnet! So I may take advantage of this promo.

Since fewer people are driving, fewer people need car washes. They're trying to get people to wash their cars. ;)

I know I haven't washed ours in over 6 months. Heck, I think we've put <2k km on it in 6 months.
