STAMFORD, Conn. — Synchrony Financial is replacing the venerable CarCareONE credit card with a revamped card called Synchrony Car Care that offers motorists the option to pay for fuel as well as auto care expenses.
The new program expands utility and enhances benefits, while building on the same core value proposition of special financing for purchases of $199 or more, Synchrony Financial said.
To broaden the acceptance of the new card at gas stations, Synchrony is working with Discover Global Network, the third largest payments network in the world. The new card can be used for purchases at gas stations nationwide—everywhere Discover Card is accepted.
The CarCareONE card, introduced more than 30 years ago, is used by more than 3 million consumers to finance automotive aftermarket parts and services at thousands of auto repair and tire retailers, Synchrony Financial said.
"The Synchrony Car Care card is an important financial resource for drivers to maintain or improve their vehicles, and manage their family's auto spending needs with one convenient payment method," said Glenn Marino, executive vice president and CEO, payment solutions, for Synchrony Financial.
