A first in Canada, RBC clients can now use RBC Rewards points to pay bills

RBC’s leadership in the loyalty space continues with the launch of
Pay Bills with Points

TORONTO, April 3, 2019 - Making the redemption experience even more rewarding, RBC’s Pay Bills with Points allows clients to use their RBC Rewards points to cover everyday expenses like phone, internet, utility bills and more. A first for any rewards program in Canada, RBC clients can seamlessly use their points to pay bills through RBC’s leading mobile banking app and online banking.

This innovation comes hot on the heels of another Canadian first launched by RBC last year, Pay with Points at Point of Sale, which provides clients with the ability to use their RBC Rewards points to pay for everyday purchases virtually anywhere in stores across Canada.

“RBC Rewards is unique because it’s designed with our members at the centre of everything we do, giving them the power to use their rewards for what’s most important to them – from the everyday to do’s like picking up groceries and paying bills to achieving their bucket list travel dreams with our market leading travel rewards – and everything in between,” said Jacquelina Calisto, Vice President, Loyalty & Rewards, RBC. “It’s what a rewards program should be.”

With each launch, RBC is giving clients even more value for their points by offering flexibility to use them when, where and how they want. RBC continues to build an industry-leading rewards program that adds more client value while seamlessly integrating into their lives.

How Pay Bills with Points Works

After logging in to online or mobile banking, RBC clients can simply:

  1. Go to the bill payments page, and select the RBC Rewards tab
  2. Choose the bill they want to pay
  3. Enter the amount to be paid to convert into points
  4. Click submit to complete the payment
