Thx for this

Lol, as long as they let me EARN on them
Things are great
As they are one of the very few places that do give out Loyalty Points / Miles on Lottery Purchases

Can easily REDEEM my PetroCanada Points (Cash Money) on other stuff

with shell changed recently with Go+ program that no more AM earned on lottery, you never know when Petro Can will do the same. I only redeemed Petro can point to buy lottery before the change. Now I am going to redeem for Walmart egift cards. Does anyone know if Walmart allow buying 3rd party gift cards using Walmart gift cards?

Update: just redeem Petro point for a Walmart gc. went to Walmart to buy Petro Can gift card. But Walmart's system doesn't allow using Walmart gift card to buy 3rd party gift card.

I noticed that yesterday trying to redeem my points for lottery ticket. The attendant scans my card to redeem the points and then says no you can't redeem .

Received email from Petro Can today that we can redeem petro points for Petro egift cards. One of the Petro Can cashiers told me they stopped the point redeeming for lottery & gift cards in store because of fraud. Now we can do it again, except with one extra step.

Anyone else get the email about only redeeming in your home province? What was the loophole?

Yes, it was part of the email I received on Dec. 8. I think they are trying to stop a stolen Petro point card to redeem points in another province. I.e. if someone stole a card online in another province, then he can not redeem in another province. It is just another way to make it harder to use a stolen card.

That’s a good theory.
