Ok, I won't post their response, sorry to cause any trouble
you might as well post what they say, but it's pretty obvious the different scenarios. First, the ad specifically says beauty Boutique Gift Card. So the ad is intended to be for the Boutique only. If the card actually works in the regular store (which it did before) then your calling is going to do a few things. It will alert them that more people are looking to buy these cards and then use on regular items. Their response in store can be to either start programming the cards to only work on boutique (i think unlikely), send memo to stores to only allow on boutique items, or stop or lower the promotion. It's better to just let the promo happen, ,then go and buy a card and see if it works. Somebody here will be able to buy the card and will take the chance and let everyone know.

Seriously, let everyone know what they said.

No one stop you paying with the machine though.
SDM self checkout doesn't accept gift card as form of payment as far as I know.

Here is someone's experience using these gift cards:

So which RFDer will step up and be willing to hit a SDM early Saturday, and buy the gift card?

Ideally someone who buys beauty boutique items regularly anyways.

Then buy other things using it. I will suggest milk and Miss Vickie's chips (2 for $4 is cheapest I've seen in a long time). Report back that 10% bonus points were added (should be a given). But more importantly, to me and others, if it works on other purchases, and if they got points on other purchases too.

Three cheers for any RFDer that does that.

Really? That is a major setback.
If I buy something that is not in deep discounted, my father will punish me; everyone will laugh at me. I will be the strange kid who doesn't fit in.

R u sure that you can use it for other stuff? If yes this is hot.
We had this deal a few years back and folks were able to use the beauty gift card for regular items. It being a beauty gift card is probably just a cosmetic design on the card.
When given enough time, all threads on RFD can and will go off on a tangent.

Very easy (legit) solution to this but it requires an additional step or two. Dont want to post it here but if anyone is curious, PM me.
Perfectly legit but can't share it. :rolleyes:

No.
It is perfectly legit. And I'm willing to share it but just not on public forum. If I post it, and everyone buys the gift cards and does it, it might dissuade sdm from offering a great promo like this next time. Just like previous poster who called them to ask if he can use the gc on non-beauty purchases.

Better to keep low-key, no?

I was in Shoppers last weekend using the beauty GC for the philips dimmer and some snacks.
They let me use the GC.
