Can I use the gift card at Walmart Bayshore?

Thanks
I think Amex only let’s you spend $100x2 in 24 hours to get the bonus. But according to customer service, Walmart doesn’t accept mall gc.

You can split the $300 into 3x $100 transactions.

And don't try to buy a different GC at the Walmart self-checkout with the Bayshore GC - it didn't work for me when I tried to buy an Esso GC. It paid for my groceries with the Bayshore GC and then spat out a paper that said I needed to use a different method of payment to buy the Esso GC and I had to wait for an attendant to come over to sort it all out. I would try a cashier to see if it goes through unnoticed.

Final tip, when any store asks how you want to pay you say "credit" or "AMEX" when paying with the mall GC. Don't say "gift card", you'll usually waste time waiting for them to cancel the transaction and re-process it as a credit card payment. :)

Went by my local Ivanhou mall and picked up 3 separate gift cards each for $125. Got the $10 bonus on each (they expire Oct 31). Went straight to the Apple Store and bought a $405 gift card.

Total came to $315 after all rebates.

Has anyone placed an order already? It would be nice to know if the bonus card is shown in the order confirmation email. If the bonus card shows up in the email, it would be better to buy GCs online at the websites of malls in Quebec.
I bought a $200 Eaton Centre gift card online and the $30 reward card showed on my confirmation email. I received two emails to redeem the gift cards. One for $200 and one for $30. The email states that I need to show my confirmation email at the Montreal Eaton Centre so I'm not sure if you could buy a gift card from a Quebec mall and redeem it in another province.

Is there a way to get $25 + $15 from the Pay It Forward promo if I want to buy 3 x $125?

Thanks for the info!

Did the second email about the $30 gift card include this message?

"5. If you wish to, come pick up your e-gift card in one of our other Ivanhoé Cambridge centres."

Also, were the formats of both emails similar? When I ordered a gift card online before, the confirmation email showed the amount of the gift card and an "e-gift card number".

If the second email clearly states $30, has an e-gift card number and includes the message I quoted above, then there shouldn't be a problem with redeeming the $30 bonus gift card in another province.

$315 for $410 = 23.2% discount
That's basically paying 2x $125 for $40 credit + $25 gc, then 1x $125 for $20 credit + $10 gc.

Pretty decent discount assuming you have something to buy. Sucks cause you have to "hide" your gc swipe when trying to buy a gc from SDM otherwise I'd prob take advantage of it.
Are you able to get $25 gc by buying 2 x $125 in separate payments to get $40 from amex? Or vice versa, get $40 from amex from a $250 transaction?

Jsut tell them you want to buy a $250 gc, but separate payments into 2 transaction of $125 each, then you can get the $25 GC. In theory even if you ask to buy 5x $50 gift cards, you should be able to get the $25 GC if you're looking at the conditions:
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.*

It says $250 in gift cards... not 1 $250 gift card.

I tried every which way and they wouldn’t budge for me. It was either $125 for $10 or $250 for $25. No other options.

For people who successfully bought other GC with this AMEX prepaid GC, what’s your strategy? I remember you have to punch in the last four digits of the car number.....right?

You are right. I read too quickly. Both emails had the same format (gift card amount and e-gift card number). They also included the below instructions. So it sounds like you would be able to redeem the gift cards in another province.

How to redeem your e-gift card

1. Present this confirmation to the Le Centre Eaton de Montréal Guest Services (printout or on your mobile phone)
2. Show one government identity card or equivalent abroad with your full name and photo, to prove your identity. See details here
3. Guest Services will record this unique e-gift card number and transfer the amount onto a plastic gift card.
4. Shop away! The card can be used at most of our retailers, listed here
5. If you wish to, come pick up your e-gift card in one of our other Ivanhoé Cambridge centres.

Can you use the same gc across Ivanhoe Cambridge centres? For example, in Metropolis Burnaby & Le Centre Eaton - or is it attached to the place you picked it up?

If anyone knows, TIA!

cheers,
:)
