If you anticipate spending any money at Canadian Tire in the future, then you may want to pick up some discounted gift cards at Real Canadian Superstore this week, or next.
From January the 11th to the 24th, you can purchase Canadian Tire gift cards from Real Canadian Superstore, for 10% off. Gift cards are available in $25, $50, or $100 denominations, and the discount is applied at the time of purchase. The offer is actually valid at several Loblaws banner stores, including Real Canadian Superstore, so if you do not have one close to you, your other options for purchasing these gift cards are Loblaws Ontario, Zehrs, Fortinos, Your Independent Grocer, No Frills, Real Atlantic Superstore, and Dominion.
I personally missed out the last time these cards were discounted, and then immediately something came up where I needed to make a purchase at Canadian Tire after all. If this has happened to you in the past be sure to pick them up this time just in case!
