For Quebec it's a 15% discount for L'Équipeur. From what I understand it's possible to use L'Équipeur gift cards at Sport Expert & Atmosphère since they are at the same location (ex: Galeries d'Anjou).

Edit: I just called them and they said no, we can't use L'Équipeur gift cards at Sport Expert :(

The trick is to buy these now and hold on to them until either Boxing day/Black Friday or another clearance sale like we had last week before they shut it down early.

15% + 10% email code + Cashback + sale at the time = good savings
Well for BF/BD there might be a better promo at 20% off...so if you dont expect to shop after those, it's better to wait.

Did they solve the problem with balances being stolen? Or is it still an issue?
this was only an issue with their older cards without the pins. All of their cards have pins now.

No. It says in the T&C.

Can we buy those gift cards, go to the store and change the payment method from credit card to GC for the shoes we bought about a week ago during the clearance promo?

I got some CT gift cards as a recognition award through work. Can I buy gift cards with gift cards? My partner says no. CT gift card site was uncertain.
No.

CT's system won't allow redemption of GCs if any GCs are rung in... if the cashier tries it just pops up with a "disallowed" message.

Fyi - you can use your gift cards to buy gas (assuming you drive and has a CT gas bar close by)

People have reported that this works yes.

Here we go again!!! I guess this is a profitable promotion. They seem to be doing them more and more..
Apparel and footwear typically have a lot of markup (so they have a lot to play with in regards to margin), and when you combine it with the fact that people typically spend above what Gift Cards are worth then it's a smart move.

Yes, plus there must be a good chunk of cards that are lost so 100% profit on those.

Last time I bought a Sport Chek gift card at one of these promotions, it sat in my basement for over a year - I totally forgot about it. It was like "found money" when I rediscovered it. The discounted card made the Friends and Family deals not so bad.

Gotta wait a decent number of years before you write GCs off though. Until then it's just a liability.
