Great Canadian Rebates $25 Amazon/Chapters Gift Certificate Winner
When I first wrote about Great Canadian Rebates, I promised readers who joined under my referral that they would have an opportunity to win a $25 gift certificate from Amazon/Chapters. As keeping with the promotion, we have drawn the newest winner.. Patricia from Toronto! Congrats! The next 100 sign ups will also be put into the draw for another $25 GC. Remember, not only is it free to join, they pay you $2 upon registration. You can check out my review of Great Canadian Rebates for more info.
Another quick note, Great Canadian Rebates is offering 5.25% cash back (normally 3.33%) from Canadian Tire (including gift cards) until Sunday March 30, 2008 12am EST. Here is a quick note from GCR on how to maximize the rebate:
The great thing about the Canadian Tire GC is that they're treated like cash so you are given Canadian Tire Money. With the 5.25% Cash Back Rebate, you can save up to 12% on your purchase.
Here's how to do it:
- Purchase Canadian Tire Gift Cards through Great Canadian Rebates (5.25% Cash Back + 2% Credit Card Cash Back Reward = 7.25%)
- When fueling, pay with gift card + Canadian Tire Gas Multiplier (3%-5% Cash Back in CT "money")
- Collect Canadian Tire money in car until you reach $5.00 or more. Go in an actual Canadian Tire store and ask one of the cashiers to kindly put all the CT Money onto an open value gift card "since it's annoying carrying around this thick wad of CT money".
- Use new gift card to purchase gas at CT gas bar (thereby using CT money to purchase GAS AND further maximizing your reward).
