My guess is that since online orders are processed by individual stores (and not a separate warehouse), you can go early in-store to snatch them up before they get a chance to go through the online order queue.

It wont exclude anything. There MIGHT be a limitation where you need to spend the $40 during a time frame (lets say Dec 1 -30 for example).
if that doesnt work for you, you can buy something and return it and then they should issue a new gift card which is usual able anytime

Kitchener-Waterloo, …
I just got an email that my order from Friday has been cancelled because they were unable to locate it in their warehouse. Now it's too late to buy this elsewhere because many of the sales have ended or the sizes are out of stock. Really disappointed.

It happens pretty often with products that are in high demand. I don't believe they actually have a warehouse, to my knowledge orders are shipped from certain retail stores. Their inventory management system is basically non-existent so they often 'oversell' items that are in high demand, resulting in cancelled orders. It's happened to me a few times.

If you email them and raise a stink over it they might offer you a discount code. A while ago I had TWO separate orders cancelled but wasn't notified until after the sale was over and I was SOL with regards to picking a different style still on sale. I emailed them about it and they offered me a 10% discount code. I told them that was useless as the intro email discount is the exact same. They upped it to 25%, and said I could use it on anything I wanted (no exclusions). I did have to escalate it a bit to get to this point though.

Update on my cancelled order, which might be useful for anyone who also had their BF orders partially cancelled, bringing them below the $150 minimum for the gift cards:

I ordered some stuff on Thursday and hit the $150 minimum to get the Masterpass GC and the Black Friday GC. They emailed a couple days later and said two of my items were cancelled (which brought my total below the $150, thus disqualifying me for the gift cards), but the fillers I purchased were shipped. I contacted them about it saying I wouldn't have ordered anything at all, had I known I wouldn't be hitting the $150 minimum due to cancelled items (on their behalf). The rep told me that the gift card offers are based on the pre-authorized amount they charge you, so if they cancel any items in your order you're still entitled to the gift cards as long as your original order hit the minimum dollar amount. I haven't gotten either of the cards yet, so time will tell if this is true. I do have it in writing though, so I guess I have a bit of leverage there if I don't end up getting them.

In the end I guess I'm pretty pleased as I (hopefully) will be getting $60 worth of gift cards but only bought about $50 worth of stuff.

PS - anyone else who was shafted out of the weighted blanket Sportchek had on sale, Home Depot has some on sale for $50 right now. They had tons when I went to get one.

I got shafted on the Oakley sunglasses, they cancelled them on me, they told me the same thing that i'd still be eligible for the (spend $xxx get $xx) credit but at this point i am so annoyed i think i am just gonna return everything once it arrives, if they want to have such shitty logistics then i will waste their money shipping the stuff.

Either I get the $40 promo card or I'm returning the whole order. They cancelled two items I really wanted and the shoes I bought were not cheaper than other retailers.

OK - so spoke with a rep this morning, it sounds like there was a technical glitch that's preventing them from going out and he would expect they go out by tomorrow or possibly the following day. Promotion period is Dec 5 - 24. He mentioned he hoped that it's not dragged out any further, they are getting a flood of calls, and we joked about if they have to extend that promotional period, it's not a bad thing for us consumers, considering we will get the most bang for our buck with this card on boxing day! Anyway, there is the update everyone.
