Was not able to use Foodland GC at Freshco yesterday. Crying Face
Which GC? which FreshCo?
Did they actually swipe? (which will work). I've had cashier unsure of it working, until they actually swiped it

The one I got recently (Apple only, says Foodland only) works at my local FreshCo, as recent as last week

What? Is this new? Have they changed the systems now - many people above have mentioned they were able to unless because logo is now removed from the GC they wont let you.

Yes I know it would work if swiped but the cashier refused to swipe and even stated that it's a foodland card, not Freshco. I had a relative report this to me and location was Midland and Lawrence in Scarborough. I'll have to try it myself with some insisting at some point but I never go grocery shopping myself Smiling Face With Open Mouth

Which location did you use it at? There are so many cashiers so it's YMMV with different results even at the same location.

My card is the same with Apple+Foodland.

Foodland sometimes has some great deals - Got some Delissio pizza last week for $3 each.
Opened the flyer and it says "Marvel Mania coming soon! Get your Air Miles card ready!" What?
Are they going to have Hulk Flank Steaks? Iron Man Repulsor Stew? Spider-Man Radioactive Bites?
Very curious.

I used at Waterloo FreshCo, with many cashiers. Your relative should've just asked for supervisor, or try different lane

I'll quote the text here, so that people can use it in future
Gift Cards are available in amounts between $5 and $500, and can be used at any of our banners Foodland, Sobeys, Price Chopper and FreshCo across Canada.
