But you get a $25 fuel savings card. More than worth it imo.
Not for everyone. Me I use PC gas bar where I get 3% and 7c/L off, which is a better deal. The 25$ is for 500L. The 200$ gift card will barely get you 200L depending where you live. The other 300L is regular price with only 5c discount.

So for me it's a pass. A straight 225 gift card for 190$ would've been maybe worth it (about 12% vs 10% with PC)

How do you use up all the gift card balance when filling up? When I prepay inside I use Preferred Price + gift card + credit card, but the gift card is never used. If I pay at the pump, I can only use Petro Points card + Preferred Price + gift card, but the savings goes back to the gift card so I end up with cards with small balances.

Get the gas, and walk to the store and give them your petro points, then preferred price card, and then your gift car +/ credit card. So they can get you petro points, apply preferred price, and charge that from giftcard/credit card.

I'm doing it wrong then since I am prepaying inside. I'll try fill up first then pay. I didn't know you can still do that. Thanks!

Well if u dont even go to Petro for gas to begin with then there is no point in getting the GCs.

PC WE MC. 3% to all loblaws child companies, shoppers including superstore gasbar. Then the gasbar has an additional 7c/L if you use the PC WE MC in points. So as long as the prices stay under 1$/L, It's over 10% discount in cash equivalent. I use the card only in RCSS and I've got about 600$+ in points in the last 3 years. I use the 2% Cap1 for everything else.

It's not Ontario though, right? Here I think you only get 2 points per liter if you fill up at refuel (+3% cashback)

Got the cards today.

Went to the ebay.giftcardactivate.com, Firefox sends this message:

Are you folks getting the same message? And what actions have you taken.

Thanks.

Update: Worked in Chrome.

Activated my card. Went for gas 30 mins later. Zero balance showing.
Anyone know if it takes time? Pricing card was active.
