[The Source] (Targeted?) Spend $50 in-store get $25 bonus card - EXTENDED

Not sure if this is targeted, but in an email from The Source this morning titled "Here’s $25 plus an incredible Holiday Flash Sale!" there is a section stating "Get a $25 Bonus Card when you spend $50 or more in store".

UPDATE: DECEMBER 15

I've gotten a second email with a new round of the same promotion with purchase dates of December 15th to December 18th and Bonus Card email delivery between December 22nd and December 29th. It looks like it should be possible to earn this 2nd bonus card even after earning one on the first round. You probably can't redeem them both on the same transaction, but if you have two separate transactions you could redeem both starting December 26th.

Thread Summary
First round:
1) Show (targeted?) email and provide email address between December 8th and 11th when purchasing at least $50 of qualifying items in-store.
2) Receive a $25 Bonus Card via email between December 15th and 19th.
3) Redeem Bonus Card starting December 26th.

Second round:
1) Show (targeted?) email and provide email address between December 15th and 18th when purchasing at least $50 of qualifying items in-store.
2) Receive a $25 Bonus Card via email between December 22nd and 29th.
3) Redeem Bonus Card starting December 26th.

Fine print reads as though you should be able to qualify for both Bonus Cards, if you make purchases during each round. But you may not be allowed to redeem both Bonus Cards in the same transaction.

I wonder if that means we can't use it in addition to the newsletter 25$ discount.

I thought the newsletter discount was for online purchases only. This promo is for in-store purchases only.

I meant like, if it's a gift card of some sort. Like the "VIP" 25$ card, doesn't specific if its to be used for in-store only.

Of course to get it, it says you have to do a 50$ instore purchase.

It is, that's why you also don't have to pay taxes on those.

How did this work? The fine print on the card says you will receive a VIP e-coupon of 25$ between dec15-dec19, not a physical gift card.

newsletter works for both online and instore, this promo is instore only.


For anyone interested in stacking the PS4 deal:
"Something to sweeten the deal:

Got an email from the source that gives $25 e-coupon for $50 spent in the store. CSR just typed in my email on the order and said I should receive it Dec 15-18.
(this can be stacked with the mailing list subscription 25 off 100 code)

Subtotal $305 + tax = $344 and receive a $25 e-voucher from Dec 15-18"

As an employee for The Source, We do 25$ bonus card on a physical giftcard, not on a VIP-ecoupon. Maybe it's not the same for the rest of the country (But i would be really surprised ) , but this is how we do it here in Quebec.

TLTR : Spend 50$, get 25$. Ask it to a Salesman if you want to be sure ;)

You mean buy like a 50$ Itunes card and get 25$ back?
