If you are like me, you must’ve shopped for bread in one of many Loblaws stores around Canada between 2002-2015. Unfortunately, Loblaws has discovered that we may have been over charged for some of the packaged bread products that were sold. As compensation, Loblaws is offering a $25 Gift Card to its customers! This post discusses how to get the Loblaws $25 gift card.
Update [Tuesday, January 9, 2018, 9:45 AM]: Called up Loblaws and the card is not limited to 1 per household. Each adult in the house can register for a card.
How to Get the Loblaws $25 Gift Card
Visit the Loblaws Website to register. Hurry, you must submit your registration by May 8, 2018. Also, Loblaws may limit the number of cards that will be issued.
As per Loblaws website, you are eligible to receive a gift card if you purchased one of the following brands of bread from Loblaws, Atlantic Superstore, Bloor Street Market, Cash & Carry, Club Entrepôt, Dominion (in Newfoundland & Labrador), Extra Foods, Fortinos, Independent City Market, Loblaws City Market, Maxi, Maxi & Cie, No Frills, Presto, Provigo, Provigo Le Marché, Real Canadian Superstore, Real Canadian Wholesale Club, Valu-mart, Wholesale Club, Your Independent Grocer, or Zehrs in the period between January 1, 2002 and March 1, 2015: Ben’s Bread, Bon Matin Bread, Country Harvest Bread, Dempster’s Bread, D’Italiano Bread, Gadoua Bread, McGavin’s Bread, No Name Bread, Old Mill Bread, POM Bread, Weston Bread, and Wonder Bread. You also have to be at least 18 years of age.
No receipt or proof of purchase is required to get a card. This leaves the program to potential abuse; however, who keeps receipts from 10 years ago anyways? The balance on the card does not expire. The card must be activated prior to use.
The website does ask for various personal information including your date of birth. A program administrator may also contact you to verify your information. It is not clear whether the card is limited to one per household or whether each shopper in a household can claim a card. However, since me and my wife both shop independently, we signed up for 2 cards and the system did not refuse the registration.
After registration, it may take upto 12 weeks for the gift card to arrive.
