CH-CHING: Get Rewarded For Watching TV


Hamilton’s news station, CHCH TV is celebrating 60 years on air this month and to thank their loyal viewers, CHCH is introducing CH-CHing! – the country’s first ever broadcast TV loyalty program.

CH-CHing! is FREE! Just register at, and earn points to redeem for rewards such as gift cards, discounts, special offers, experiences and various goods from CHCH and its broadcast partners.  Viewers earn points by interacting with the CHCH brand on air and online, entering keywords from television programming, and watching and sharing news clips online.

Earn with CH-CHing!

Register for CH-CHing by June 30th and get a 6000 bonus point sign up bonus (plus there was a code during their 60-minute retrospective on CHCH’s history entitled 60 Years Strong with a bonus keyword code (if you missed it, the code is in the title – hint hint – enter it in all capital letters).

You get 100 points for sharing stories on facebook or twitter (max 3 times per day), 30 for watching shows like Sportsline and Square Off online and 50 for every 5 minutes of news you watch online.  Share by email and get 50 points and watch a news clip attached to a story and get 20 points – they really add up over time.  They will also have occasional partner content where you watch a popup advertisement for 2000 points.

Redeem Your CH-CHing points

You do not have to be in Hamilton to sign up, CH-CHing! is available across Canada excluding Quebec, but many of the prizes are from Hamilton area partners.  Just the sign up bonus and code from the retrospective was enough for me to redeem for a $10 ECS coffee gift card.  Most gift card redemptions are 1000 points per $1 but there are also physical prizes like CHCH ball caps and jackets, calendars and other items.

You can also redeem a small amount of your points for entries into contests.  Current contests are for a Nissan Micra, Holiday Valley Golf Stay for 2 and a Wild Water Kingdom pass for a family of 4.
