[Future Shop] Future Shop Gift Cards Redemption Promo thru RBC Rewards - Until June 30th, 2007

Hey y'all I just got an email from RBC Rewards as I have a card with them, not sure how hot of a deal it is but if you have a RBC Visa that earns points, and you have some points sitting around (at least 5000 pts) on your RBC Visa card, you might want to consider redeeming for some FS gift cards. As of recently, FS gift cards can now also be used online for purchases.

To further clarify, for this offer, you would need to redeem existing RBC Rewards points for gift cards using the RBC Rewards web itse or by calling in, these gift cards can not be purhased w/ your existing Visa or cold hard cash.

Until June 30th, a $50 FUTURE SHOP gift card is now only 5,000 RBC Rewards points (normally costs 6000 points)

OP, please change title to "redemption promotion" or something. I was expecting to be able to buy them with hard, cold cash.

I modified the title for you guys on here, I wrote it up real quick before going on lunch Sorry if it wasn't all that clear. The title that I postyed is actually the same title listed in the heading of the email.

To adress the questions, I got the email for signing up for RBC Rewards promos a while back along with some bonus points. I got the email on May 24th & when I just checked the RBC Rewards site it worked fine for me. I selected redeem for gift ceftifcates & selected Future shop & the old redemption amounts appear to be crossed out, with the promo redemtion amounts highlighted in RED. This offer only applies to redemptions of $50 or $100 on Future shop gift cards.

...My bad, I apologize for the confusion, title has been changed from sale to redemption.

...The sale is live right now as long as you have an RBC Visa card that earns points. I had a friend try it & it worked for them too, unless the promo is it for select RBC Visa cardholders.

..Can't say why i'm getting them & some of you guys aren't yet...I would assume you need to have at least 5000 Rewards points to take advanatge of this offer, that could be why.

Huh? You don't just "get" bonus points. RBC Points are awarded when using your RBC Visas. You save up points them redeem them for merchandise or GCs.

I just logged in and mine is still listing 6000pts for the $50 GC. Not sure why its only appearing for some.

I'm well aware. OP said he got this email with some "bonus points", and perhaps I misunderstood but that sounds like extra points on top of the points you earn with your rewards VISA.

....Just to clarify the offer I posted, is not for bonus points it is an offer allowing you get $50 or $100 worth of Future shop gift cards for 5000 or 10,000 points respectively depending on what value of gift cards you want.

I have got bonus RBC Rewards points in the past by signing up for their RBC Rewards e-newsletter which usually has offers in there for bonus points, this is not one thoe offers.
