Loblaw discovered that Canadians were overcharged for the cost of some packaged bread products in our stores and other grocery stores across Canada. In response, we're offering eligible customers a $25 Loblaw Card, which can be used to purchase items sold in our grocery stores across Canada.

Registration for the Loblaw Card Program will open on January 8, 2018. Please check back then.

In the meantime, you can also provide your email address to receive a notice once registration has opened.

Probably for those who have bought bread from loblaws within the past month or so, which I have done. Worth giving it a shot.

yeah they trying to be proactive so hopefully a class action lawsuit as they really owe hundreds to thousands to many that are loyal to their high prices which is not me except when free money as we all go to frills, loblaws, zehs, superstore or some form of weston and bakeries in last few decades :)
