Thread Summary
Aside from having all GC's in one thread for quick reference, the ultimate goal of this thread is to have a future reference to see when certain GC's will go on discount - assuming these discounts are cyclical from year to year.

If you have any suggestions, please post them in the thread.

Notes:

(1) Deals are listed in order from newest to oldest, latest end promo dates at the top
(2) Click on the start/end promo dates to go to the RFD thread about the GC deal (if one exists) - no link means no thread
(3) Click on the retailer to get a link to the flyers/deals (if available on RFD or on the retailers website)
(4) If the deal appears in a flyer, the location of the deal in the flyer will appear bolded on the deal line before the red-texted discount amount
(5) Best to view this thread on any device except for RFD Forums app at the moment - no colours and lists do not display correctly

Quick Reference:

(A) Active - Timed deals/discounts can be found under post #1
(B) Active - Ongoing deals/discounts can be found under post #2
(C) Costco On Sale/Daily deals/discounts can be found under post #3
(D) GC Policies/Notes/Tips can be found under post #4
(E) Expired GC deals and future expansion can be found under posts #5-10

GC Policies/Notes/Tips:

  • Air Miles:
    • As of April 5, 2017, AIR MILES Cash Miles can no longer be used to redeem for gift cards, prepaid credit cards or other similar items. HOWEVER, some people have been offered to redeem AIR MILES Cash Miles to pay for their GC's and the transactions went through. Therefore, for now, it appears that the system does not deny Cash Miles points redemption for GC's and any denial is by the retailers' employees' enforcement of the Air Miles policy. YMMV.
  • Canadian Tire:
    • A Canadian Tire GC CANNOT be used to purchase a non-Canadian Tire GC.
    • Canadian Tire CTFS Options Mastercard users do NOT receive 4x cashback on GC purchases.
  • eBay (giftcardstore):
    • Once you receive your gift card(s), you will need to activate them. Activation requires 3 things: (1) your last name, (2) the last 6 numbers from the scratch-off PIN, and (3) the phone number assigned to your eBay's shipping address.
    • Paypal Digital Gifts is the legit Paypal gift card store on ebay
  • Google Play:
    • A list of retailers that sell Google Play gift cards can be found here.
    • Can NOT be used to buy Google hardware
  • Loblaw Companies:
    • Effective May 11, 2017, PC Points cannot be redeemed for gift cards, pre-paid cards, and wireless or long-distance phone cards per their updated Terms & Conditions.
  • Rexall:
    • Tip for the $10 Rexall Gift Coupon promo: Spend $35 or more and use the printable coupon here (expires Feb 5, 2018) to get $5 off $25 purchase, making your purchase $30 or more to get the $10 Rexall Gift Coupon.
  • Sephora:
    • Sephora gift cards can be used in-store as well as online per their online FAQ's (go to Where can I use my Gift Cards and eGift Cards?).
  • Shoppers Drug Mart/Pharmaprix:
    • Purchasing a non-SDM/Pharmaprix gift card with a SDM/Pharmaprix gift card is very YMMV. Store policy does not allow it but, since each store is independently owned by Associate-Owners, they may allow it.
    • Generally, gift cards can be purchased by credit cards but some Associate-Owners do not allow it.
    • Gift card availability can be found here - Shoppers Drug Mart / Pharmaprix
  • Sobeys Companies: Can be used to buy other gift cards (Not Sobeys) according to the terms but may have issues with cashiers not allowing.
    • IGA
    • IGA Extra
    • Safeway
    • Price Chopper
    • Foodland
    • Thrifty Foods
    • FreshCo
    • Sobeys Urban Fresh

    • Canyon Creek
    • Duke’s Refresher + Bar
    • Jack Astor's Bar and Grill
    • Loose Moose
    • REDs
    • Scaddabush
