Spending money is a bummer, isn’t it? Sure, spending money can sometimes mean you’re getting great things in return, like food, clothes, and (if you’re anything like us) more food. But wouldn’t it be nice if spending money got you money in return? Is such a thing even possible? Well, well, well, with Ampli, a new app powered by RBC, it is! Plus, we’ve partnered with Ampli to offer some awesome cash back rewards right here in Calgary, but more on that in just a bit!


Now, let’s talk about Ampli! This is a FREE rewards app that actually rewards you in cash rather than points. Plus, it’s partnered with some big, big companies across the country that will definitely get you excited to try it out. We’re talking about places like Sephora, H&M, Rexall, Landmark Cinemas, Indigo.ca, and Boston Pizza, just to name a few.

So you’re probably wondering how you get cash back by spending money, right? Well, let’s break it down for you. First, you’re going to want to download and sign up for the Ampli app using the code CURIOCITY. Then, you’ll connect a credit card or debit card to the app. Now, Ampli is powered by RBC, but you don’t need an RBC account to use it. In fact, Ampli works with over 130 financial institutions in Canada.

Next, you shop at Ampli partner brands across the country and start getting your cash back! You don’t need to activate any offers, carry around a loyalty card, shop through a specific link, or even scan receipts after purchasing! Nope, you’ve just got to shop, meet the offer criteria, then your cash back earnings will be added to your Ampli account within 5 business days.

Finally, once your balance hits $15, you can send yourself a free Interac e-Transfer and voila, that money is yours.

To top it all off, Curiocity has partnered with Ampli to provide you with seven restaurants in Calgary where you can get $10 back just by spending $20 or more. Those are Niko’s Pizza, Jinya Ramen, Pho Dau Bao, Alumni Sandwiches, Bridgette Bar, Hayden Block, and Tandoori Grill. Not a bad little list, is it?

You can get this Calgary deal by using the code CURIOCITY to sign up for Ampli before November 30th. Then, use whatever card you have connected to Ampli at any of those seven restaurants by December 31st, 2020 to get a $10 cash-back bonus added to your Ampli account balance.

So, what do you say, folks? With the holidays (and holiday spending) on the way, it seems like using Ampli is an easy choice. It’s free to download, free to use, and puts some of that hard-earned cash right back into your pocket.
