Thanks OP, was running low. I'll take 8.3% over 0%

The $500 limit doesn't make sense though.. someone at SDM failed math?

You never could redeem for points at Shoppers, or pretty much any retailer now for that matter.

7.7% is correct since you get $325 for $300, a $25 bonus. 25/325 = 7.7% but...
... you lose your 4% Triangle rewards points...
...but gain .4% Canadian Tire money on cash/gift card sales.
7.7 - 4 + .4 = 4.1%

Is going to the trouble of buying a gift card, remembering to use the gift card, etc. worth the trouble for 4.1%? I'm cheap. So yes!!

When using CT gift cards to pay for gas, you get around 3.5c per litre, which is around 2-3% depending what the gas prices are. The rate changes I believe (I've noticed it to be 3c, 3.5c, or 4c), but its around there. You also gain X% of credit card points that you use to purchase from Shoppers. Even better when you're trying to hit a welcome bonus!

In Alberta CT money earned at 4c/l for any amount. So on say $1 gas the GC+CT money saving are 12c/l ( 4+7.7) rounded.. PLUS don't forget the additional 2c/l survey code. So all stacked ~ 14c/l savings. Best out there by a mile!

You always seem to get 1-2 cards that don't work, (either stolen codes/never scan properly) that easily negates any bonus

Personally I find CT prices are higher vs other stations as well...

Anyone know what refinery they get their gas from?

Look for the new style GCs where the bar code is hidden under a perforated tear away strip. Don't get the old style where the bar code is plainly visible that can be compromised.
