its usd...i used it in chicago this past summer.
Yes its $71.43USD or only $75CAD if used here. Pretty sure the conversion is built into the card and not converted at the time of use.

I just found two RC gift cards that I bought from one of the original deals. Sticker says $75CAD or $71.43 USD on them, called the phone number and they still have the full amount on them. I guess its better value to use in the states then! The cards have to be like 7 or 8 years old
They have been in USD for years now and we always used them in USA instead when we are on vacations in Hawaii/Boston...etc.

Yes. There is a fixed US dollar value to the GC sold in Canada. I used the ones from last deal at a Boston restaurant and they carried a value of USD37.xx each, which was approximately the exchange rate at the time of GC purchase.

If you're dropping $75 on a steak, do you care that a bake potato, big enough for 2 people, is $8?
Its not like you're just going to get a baked potato , right ?

Last year was a 1:1 ... hope the $250 to 125 points was a typo!
I bought this a couple years ago and it was 2:1...then the next summer it was 1:2. The flip was discussed here in the thread. I don't remember 1:1.

I too remember it was $1:2 loyalty pts and then it went down to $1:1 loyalty point and now it is even lower at $1:0.5 loyalty point.

Your confused friend. The $8 potato is used as an example to show the absurdity of the entire situation, an analogy of sorts.

Its only absurd if you cannot afford the luxury of an $8 potato. :-)

Kinda sucks doesn't it? All of a sudden it doesn't feel like loyalty points. Feels more like Costco coupons. Should have stayed 1:1. 1:2 would have been good but that would not last.

Best Filet Mignon I have ever eaten was at Ruth's Chris along with their $8 baked potato and Huge Mushroons and a Great bottle of Red.

That's what happens when you have frugal people dine at a high end restaurant

I went here for a vendor lunch 2 weeks ago, my steak was good, but not amazing, we had the executive 3 course lunch, it was a steak the size of my fist, a tiny salad, a bowl of mashed potatoes to share with your table, and a plate of broccoli(that's what they consider seasonal vegatables), and a piece of cake that was thinner then my pinky finger.

I beleive this was priced at 60$ a head, what a rip off.

Is this the first time you've ever ate steak at a high end restaurant?

Did you expect a 15 ounce at $60?
