Synchrony, a consumer financial services company, has announced that Synchrony Car Care is increasing its acceptance network of merchants by tenfold to include more auto-related categories and locations. Cardholders will now have the ability to use this all-in-one solution across 25 key merchant categories including gas purchases, auto parts and service, car washes, parking, ride sharing and more.
Introduced in 2017, the Synchrony Car Care Credit Card is a no annual-fee credit card that meets the needs of drivers by offering a dedicated payment solution for both planned and unexpected automotive expenses. In addition to greater acceptance, the card now offers six-months promotional financing on all purchases of $199 or more* at over 500,000 automotive service and parts across the country.
“Synchrony Car Care continues to be a financial resource for consumers who want to manage their family’s auto spending needs with one convenient payment method,” said Neeraj Mehta, executive vice president and CEO, payment Solutions. “With this expansion in acceptance and financing opportunities, our cardholders have security in knowing the card is there for them when they need it. The new enhancements we’re making are part of our ongoing commitment to help our card holders reach every destination.”
The Synchrony Car Care credit card is issued and serviced by Synchrony Bank. Synchrony is partnering with Discover Global Network, the third largest payments network in the world, to provide greater acceptance within the automotive category. For the cardholder, this means increased nationwide acceptance in more locations outside Synchrony Car Care’s traditional parts and service categories, the company said.
Based on feedback received through extensive consumer research, technological solutions driving ease of use continue to be a priority for today’s consumers. Synchrony Car Care delivers with a dedicated mobile app, available for free for iOS devices and the Android Google Play app store.
