RBC Esso Visa Points

From their website, I will get 2 points per $ expense at Esso Stations.
However, I spent 30$ at Esso Station using my Speedpass which is linked to my RBC Esso Visa, and I got only 30 points. This 30 points I can get with whatever cc to pay at Esso Station.

Just wonder how and when RBC will give me another 30 points. I can see that from my RBC online account that there is an authorized transaction as follows:

I believe the remaining 30 points you will receive when you get your monthly credit statement.

30 points right when you pay with your speed pass. And 30 at the end of the statement cycle.

This sounds correct (the above). The Esso Visa has a complicated points system that isn't transparent or easy to understand. This is one of the major reasons I changed The RBC Esso Visa to the RBC Cashback Master card. The other being I get 2 percent back for groceries. Keep the Speed pass but 0.75% Cashback from the points system isn't very good.

It's much a crappy CC. Don't except much from RBC. They never share their Profits. I have it just to be able to get the Multiproduct Rebate, thus pay no monthly fees.
