San Mateo, Calif. Debit-card provider Tempo said Tuesday that c-store chain QuikTrip is expanding its QuikTrip Rewards Debit Card program, utilizing Tempo’s affinity debit-card platform and re-issuing the cards with Tempo partner First Bank & Trust of Brookings, SD, part of Fishback Financial Corp.
According to Tempo, its affinity debit cards link to consumers’ existing checking accounts and can be used everywhere Discover cards are accepted.
The QuikTrip Rewards Debit Card provides consumers with a fuel purchase discount of 5 cents per gallon at QuikTrip for the first 90 days after activation and 2 cents per gallon thereafter. As a special introductory offer, those activating their cards before Nov. 30 will qualify for a fuel-purchase discount of 10 cents per gallon during the initial 90 days, and 2 cents per gallon thereafter.
The card also provides quarterly cash-back rewards for purchases made at millions of merchant locations outside of QuikTrip. Using Tempo’s affinity debit-card platform, consumers can sign up for and activate their cards on the web, and because they’re using existing checking accounts there is no need to change banks.
“QuikTrip is leveraging the Tempo platform to give its customers the freedom to use their checking accounts with a debit card of their choice that pays back with immediate gas discounts and regular cash-back rewards,” said Tempo CEO Mike Grossman.
