I got 2 of them (one under my email, and one under my wife's). The first one, still shows a balance of $5 (for now). The second one, shows the $5 credit and then $5 debt for a balance of $0.

They probably realized the RFD effect, and decided to reverse all the cards that were sent out in the last hour or so. Or decided to reverse any cards which were requested from identical IPs.

Oh well.

EDIT: Just checked the second one, and it now shows the credit and debit also, so both dead before using them,

Yea the system started recycling gift cards once they were out (bad programing) so people are getting the same cards.
I signed up for 6 cards via family members and earlier today 3 of which have already been redeemed. I haven't had a chance to go to the store yet, so likely those other 3 will be gone by EOD.
Crappily run program. :/

Hmm. This might be too good to be true then. I put in the number and pin and get this:

Current Balance: $ 0.00
Date Approved Amount Transaction Description
08/09/2021 $ 5.00 PIN Verified Debit
06/03/2021 $ 5.00 PIN Verified Credit
I confirm that I just tried to use my card and got an insufficient balance error. =/ I got the card 1 hour ago, I am post #1 after OP.

Yeah I give up haha, this promotion was poorly planned by them. I got 3 cards with my 3 emails, all are worth nothing already.

technically yes, though you need to call assistant to input the PIN

Yes, but an employee must be there to help you enter the PIN number on the backend.

When given enough time, all threads on RFD can and will go off on a tangent.

If you're still seeing a balance on your card, THEN RUN AS FAST AS YOU CAN TO YOUR NEAREST LOBLAWS STORE TO USE IT BEFORE SOMEONE ELSE DOES. Face With Tears Of JoyFace With Tears Of JoyFace With Tears Of Joy

I signed up yesterday at 10AM, by the afternoon I saw the balance was $0.00 and when I called customer service, I was told it was redeemed around 1PM at a Real Canadian Superstore.

Seems like they've been sending the same gift cards to multiple people.

Don't blame the couponers. That was a stupid promotion to begin with. A 10-year old would have figured out that people would use temporary e-mail addresses. Loblaws got what they deserve. Congrats to those who got cards.
