It looks like Canadian Tire is finally phasing out "Canadian Tire Money" and replacing it will this rewards card.
Canadian Tire just tweeted out about a Triangle card that is going to change the way we collect rewards from Canadian Tire. It seems like Canadian Tire cash will slowly dissolve as Canadian Tire moves onto a much easier rewards system.
A Canadian Tire customer service representative assured us that Canadian Tire will never get rid of their cash, but considering many Canadian Tire stores no longer actually carry the physical cash anymore, this is a new, better way to collect rewards.
For a few years now, Canadian Tire has been using this system where customers can collect "e-money" as opposed to physical Canadian Tire cash.
The Triangle rewards card is the newest way for customers to collect their rewards. Canadian Tire is changing over the old system of e-money to the Triangle card.
Young Canadians are starting to abandon the concept of one day buying a home in Canada. In fact, a new report from RBC shows that 36% of non-homeowners under the age of 40 say that they've given up on the dream of ever owning a home in Canada.
While nearly two in five survey respondents said that they'll never own a home in the country, even more people feel that way in Western Canada. According to the data, 41% of people across Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and B.C. aren't feeling very optimistic about their chances at diving into the real estate market.
On the flip side, 60% of the respondents said that they are likely to buy a home in the next two years and they even shared how much money they're putting aside each month to try and make that happen.
In Western Canada, people are putting aside an average of $500 per month. In comparison, Ontarians who are planning to buy soon are saving an average of $1,000 a month.
Beyond that, 62% of the young Canadians who were surveyed said that they "believe that the majority of Canadians will be priced out of the housing market in the next decade."
An Ohio vaccine lottery is in the works and five people are set to win a lot of money just for getting a COVID-19 vaccine dose.
Ohio Governor Mike DeWine announced that starting on May 26, one lucky state resident who has received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine will be randomly selected each week for five weeks to receive $1 million in federal COVID relief funds.
To be eligible to win one of the five $1 million prizes, you must be an Ohio resident, be 18 or older on the day of the draw and have received at least one dose before the draw happens.
"I know that some may say [...] 'This million-dollar drawing idea of yours is a waste of money,'" the governor tweeted on Wednesday, May 12. "But truly, the real waste at this point in the pandemic — when the vaccine is readily available to anyone who wants it — is a life lost to COVID-19."
This vaccine lottery is not the only vaccine incentive out there, as Target is also offering a $5 credit to shoppers who get a dose at CVS pharmacies in locations across the U.S.
The CDC has a robust website with all the latest information on the vaccines and can answer any questions you may have. Click here for more information.
