Pay for it with your Credit Union MasterCard, pay it forward with your Choice Rewards points

If you have a Credit Union MasterCard, chances are you’ve already heard of the Choice Rewards program, which allows you to collect points every time you use your Choice Rewards MasterCard for purchases.
The points you receive can then be redeemed for merchandise and travel rewards. Those features alone make the Choice Rewards program enticing, but did you know you can also redeem your Choice Rewards points for donations to two national charitable organizations?
By calling the Customer Contact Centre at 1-888-546-5487, you can use your points to make a charitable donation to either the Canadian Cancer Society or the United Way of Canada. A minimum donation of 2,500 points (the equivalent of a $25 donation) is required. Tax receipts will be issued by the charitable organization and will be sent to you directly on a bi-annual basis.
The Canadian Cancer Society is a national, community-based organization of volunteers, whose mission is the eradication of cancer and the enhancement of the quality of life of people living with cancer.
The United Way of Canada provides guidance and support to Canada’s 119 United Ways, which work locally to change living conditions for the better.
