Wouldn’t it be nice if spending money got you money in return? Well, RBC’s new app, Ampli, has made that dream a reality! This app gives you actual cash back as you shop their partner brands across the country, and it really is that easy. Plus, you don’t even need to have an RBC account. Talk about some wins all around, people! Plus, we’ve teamed up with Ampli to offer some awesome cash back rewards right here in Calgary. Let’s get into it!


Do you have a drink handy? Are you buckled up to save crazy $$? Great, then 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 iconic companies across the country: think Sephora, H&M, Rexall, Landmark Cinemas, Indigo.ca, and Boston Pizza, just to name a few. Excited yet?

You should be, because this 4-step process is crazy simple. Step one: download and sign up for the Ampli app using the code CURIOCITY until December 10th. Step two: connect a credit card or debit card to the app. Don’t have an RBC account? No problem! Ampli is powered by RBC, but the app works with over 130 financial institutions in Canada. Phew.

Step three: support Canadian business and shop at Ampli partner brands across the country! And finally, step four: profit. That’s right folks, you don’t even need to activate any offers, carry around a loyalty card, shop through a specific link, or scan receipts after purchasing. That’s so 2019. Here in the future, we just shop, meet the offer criteria, then collect on wicked cash back earnings (they will be added to your Ampli account within 5 business days!).

Once your balance hits 15 bucks, you can send yourself a free Interac e-Transfer and go to town with your new moola. We can’t think of a better way to tackle the holiday season!

Oh, and that’s not all! Remember that local partnership we talked about earlier? 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. From Niko’s Pizza to Jinya Ramen, these are serious comfort food must-trys. Pho Dau Bao, Alumni Sandwiches, Bridgette Bar, Hayden Block, and Tandoori Grill also made the cut!

All you have to do to take advantage of this local Calgary deal is use code CURIOCITY to sign up for Ampli before December 10th! Then, use whatever card you have connected to Ampli at any of one of those seven restaurants by December 31st, 2020 to get a $10 cash back bonus added to your Ampli account balance. Score!

The holidays are fun… but spending money? It’s a lot more enjoyable when you’re getting money back with Ampli. Whether you’re looking to try some new takeout or find that special gift, RBC’s got you covered. Plus, it’s all free to download and free to use, so what’re you waiting for? Put some of that hard-earned cash right back into your pocket, Calgary! We’ll be here to cheer you on along the way.
