Frustrating indeed. I just did my $300 of Ivanhoe Cambridge GC's last weekend.

I guess the takeaway for next time is to wait...

Get a $25 bonus card with the purchase of $250 in gift cards.
Or
A $10 bonus card with the purchase of $125 in gift cards.*


However, if one wants to get $20 x3 credits, needs to be

AMEX $100 GC to get one $20 credit
x 3 transactions

So, if get one $250 GC and bonus $25 from IC, only one AMEX $20 credit

Or is my interpretation of the offer incorrect?

Oh well, I bought it yesterday and now I want to shoot myself on the foot for not being lazy on a Sunday.
Save a lot but end up spending more :confused:

Yeah. I think it’s better to just do 125 x 3?

I paid for a $300 gift card in 3 x $100 transactions back to back early in the promo. This qualifies for one $5 shop small credit.

Exactly! $375 vs $300 in GCs.

Still end up spending an additional

$75 - $30 bonus = $45 net spend

Edit: better to purchase in person, if want to try and squeeze an additional $5 or $35 bonus

$250 GC for $25 bonus + 2* $20
1. $125 transaction *
2. $125 transaction *

$125 GC for $10 bonus + 1*$20

*YMMV


@bluewish @Howitzer1, you still got a great deal!

Back in July naticom did advise everybody to hold off until there was a promotion if not in a rush to use the GCs:

Not sure if there will be any but there are still two more months to go.

Last year I stacked the buy "$100 Ivanhoe GC get $15" offer with Metrotown's Black Friday (or Boxing Day, i forgot) GC promo, which is another 10% off!

I also told several people in line "if you have a AMEX, check your offer" and a lady really benefited from it!

I think this offer is better than metrotown then. Probably head to T-mills later.

Lol....I just came back from a road trip and saw Metrotown’s gc promo email. Wanna give everyone a heads up but already seeing you guys talking about stacking the offers. You’re all true RFDers!

Over the weeks I've read all of this thread but can someone pls remind me what the benefit of getting it all on 1 card is? Is it just ease of keeping track of 1 gc or smth else?

Thx thx all for the fab info, ideas & solutions!
