Canadian Tips & Tricks: Buy A Gift Card With Additional Rewards Before You Go Shopping!

Here’s a tip for all of you Black Friday shoppers:

Buy a gift card with rewards attached.  Many retailers want you to purchase gift cards over the holiday season, so they add a freebie when you purchase a card over a certain amount.  A few examples include:

  • Purchase a $25 Rona, La Vie En Rose or Spa Finder gift card at Safeway, receive 20 Air Miles.
  • Purchase a $50 Boston Pizza gift card, get a free pizza or pasta meal
  • Buy two $25  selected gift cards at Rexall, save $10

These are just a few of many great gift card offers out there.  I suggest you ask if the store you are shopping at offers gift card bonuses before you purchase anything.  Who knows?  You might score yourself a freebie.

    Rexall one is incorrect – the Rexall promo is only for La Vie En Rose, I Tunes, and some Spa.

    The_Rock is unfortunately correct. My mom just finished buying some Rexall cards and they came and put up a sign stating only the three cards pictured on the coupon were part of the promotion.

    Subway has a deal where if you buy a $25 gift card you get a coupon for a free 6 inch sub!

  4. darkknight says:

    nikkhi – that is incorrect. You don’t get a coupon, you get the free 6 inch sub instantly and it has to be used at the time of purchase for the gift card. However, you can stack them so I bought 2 $25 gift cards to get a a footlong speciality sub free
