Synchrony Car Care Credit Card Offers Tune-Ups and Fuel-Ups
A new credit card from Synchrony Financial offers drivers the ease of paying for automobile maintenance as well as gas.
The Synchrony Car Care credit card will let motorists pay for tune-ups and parts at thousands of automobile centers across the country, and will also be accepted at gas stations nationwide.
The card, which is available to folks with fair or average credit, replaces the CarCareONE card. It offers expanded benefits, building on the same initial values that are centered around offering financing for purchases over $200. The card is accepted wherever Discover Card is taken, as it works with the Discover Global Network.
“The Synchrony Car Care card is an important financial resource for drivers to maintain or improve their vehicles,” says Glenn Marino, executive vice president and CEO at Synchrony Financial. He added that it allows families to manage their automobile costs with one payment, rather than spreading it across multiple cards. “Consumer and merchant input has been vital in enhancing this market-leading program in ways that provide greater value and flexibility to both car owners and service providers,” said Marino.
A mobile app gives consumers easy access to special offers
There are almost three million existing cardholders in the Synchrony Car Care portfolio already; they will be able to pay for services at independent auto specialists and full service chains across the country, as well as in Puerto Rico. More than 25,000 service and parts shops take the card, as well as over 185,000 gas stations.
The card also offers a free mobile app that lets users look for nearby gas stations and service shops, track spending, manage their account, and access special offers easily via smartphone.
Cardholders report being happy with the card; recent feedback indicated 90% of Synchrony Car Care members were satisfied, and 88% were happy with their in-store experience using the card. What’s more, 33% of them said they would not have been able to make a major purchase (classified as $500 or more) if not for the card. More than 70% of automotive credit cardholders say they are always on the lookout for promotional offers and special financing, and 88% said those offers made greater savings possible on big purchases.
