Canada, Eh!!
Got e gift card today as well.
2022: BOC raised 7 times and MCAP raised its prime next day.
2017 to 2018: BOC raised rates 5 times and MCAP raised its prime next day each time.
2020: BOC dropped rates 3 times and MCAP waited to drop its prime to include all 3 drops.

Took the full six weeks for me after sending it back.
Can't remember the specific date, but it was 6wks after I filled out the original form (time it took for them to send me return pkg), and that was literally the day after it was posted here on RFD.
Tis banana is IRIE 😎

10% off is cold, 50% off is warm, 75% off is hot, but FREE IS RFD!

I haven't got my refund gift card. But I would use it to buy other stuff. ( will get air fryer else where)

Costco has this for $84.99 https://www.costco.ca/gourmia-7-quart-d ... 84087.html

I called Insignia today ( 1-877-650-5411 )
the lady told me, mine was process July 4 and then will take 3 to 6 week?? and I will get an email from Best buy for the GC ( not mail??)

will wait and see

I actually went to check out the Gourmia from Costco. I did not buy it because I opted for the Insignia again for the fact that i can easily take the drawer out then shake and toss the fries and wings during the frying period - way easier then the Gourmia. Just my own preference.

Also glad that I was able to catch the sale for the Insignia for $80 - same price as the Gourmia.

Im trying to find a good deal on the Cosori Air Fryer, sounds like that's the best bang for your buck item on the market, the gourmia looks dull in comparison.

The Cosori seems to be quite similar in design as the Insignia (at least the model I checked on Amazon); but many reviews complaint about the burnt and broken handle.

Super happy with my Ninja air fryer, I use it every day. If you're looking for something other than Insignia.

I still haven't shipped ours back. We're quite dependent on it and I haven't seen anything similarly price for what we paid for it recently. I'm hoping the Costco AirFryer will go on sale again soon.

Of course an email. It's an electronic gift card. There will be a link to view the codes (number an PIN). Check spam folders.
