Back to School Shopping Is Rewarding with RBC #RBCRewards101

First day of school 2013
Have you finished your back to school shopping yet? Or started? I do most of my shopping for supplies after school starts so I can get a better idea of what Boo might need. But back pack, clothes and shoes happen in August. I've already picked up his new jeans. I ordered them online from Old Navy when they had their $10 kids' jeans sale (happens every August!) And with free shipping on orders over $50 (I always spend over $50) this is a total score. Online shopping is super convenient - no parking, no crowds, better selection. And if you start your shop from a rewards site, you can earn points towards future purchases or perhaps a little treat just for you.

RBC Rewards hosts an eMall where you can shop online at over 250 popular retailers. RBC Rewards members earn points on their purchases that can be redeemed for gift cards, merchandise, travel and more. Plus, shopping through the eMall can bring you bonus points over and above the 1 point you earn per dollar you spend using your RBC card. For example, my go-to fave Old Navy offers 5 bonus per dollar spent. And The Gap? 6 bonus points! Great rewards to be had for the new school wardrobe there. And for all your school supplies, shop through the eMall at and you'll also earn 5 bonus points per dollar spent. If your son or daughter needs a new laptop for school this year, check out and earn 1 bonus point for dollar. You'll be surprised how many stores are available to meet all your back to school needs.

RBC has created a Rewards101 website to help you get ready for back to school. They've even provided three videos to help you get the most out of your RBC Rewards Program - "Rewards & Redemption" (how can you stretch your back to school budget by redeeming points?), "Best Buy & Future Shop" (you can redeem points for their products!), and "The RBC Rewards eMall" (to show you how you can earn bonus points by shopping online). Head over to the website and check them out.

Are you a member of the RBC Rewards program? Did you know about the eMall? I'd love to hear how
you're using your membership to maximise your points and rewards!
