    hey!
    does anyone know if you can use sobeys airmiles vouchers to buy sobeys gift cards?
    and if you can, would you qualify for the bonus 40 airmiles when you buy 100 in gift cards?

    I *think* I've bought other GCs using an AM voucher. I'm sure it would qualify.

    I looked through the entire flyer and didn't see one - maybe it was a coupon from AMs?

    Also, I don't know if this would work but I would love it if it does. Perhaps just buy your GC and a few groceries kind of like what people do at SDM if someone says you won't get points on the GC.
    Blog. Open an account with Tangerine (formerly ING-Direct) using my Orange Key (40643422S1), deposit $100 and we both get $50! Offer is available until December 31st. Check here for more details.

    it was a coupon we got in the mail.
    there were a few sobeys bonus offers in there.
    one said you would get 40 bonus airmiles if you purchased 100 dollars or more in sobeys gift cards.
    we have 2 50 dollar airmiles vouchers for sobeys - so i was thinking why not get the gift cards, and hopefully get 40 more airmiles.

    the coupon doesn't say a certain way the gift card must be purchased - so technically - it should work.

    I got the same coupon. I'm not sure, you'll have to let us know on that one! Because you're just transferring one currency, the Sobey's gift certificates, to another currency, the Sobey's gift card. Either way you have to spend the currency at Sobey's. With their $100 deal, they are insuring you are spending your $100 at their store only (and not schleping across the road to the next deal @ SS, like I would be with cash. LOL).

    doesn't hurt to try i suppose.

    i can tell you that there is no prob to use your sobeys am vouchers to buy gift cards....in fact it was a cashier who suggested i do this. i had cashed in all my airmiles before the redemption levels increased in march. i flipped all my certificates into sobeys and swiss chalet gift cards. i don't know about the bonus airmiles, but have a hunch it might work. good luck

    I love it when they give airmiles or sell the $100 GC's for $95. I'm going to spend the money anyway, why not save a bit while I am doing it. I don't know if anyone has kids old enough for University, but I will tell you I saved a fortune using airmiles to get Chapters GC's and buying text books that way. It's funny since I graduated last May I don't know what to do with my Airmiles anymore. I think I may save them for a toaster

    Not so. I've bought NSLC and Subway GCs with a Sobeys GC, no problem at all.
