this offer is expired

In response to the Loblaw bread price-fixing scandal, Save-On-Foods is offering members of their More Rewards program a free $25.00 gift card!

This offer is only available to More Rewards members who registered before December 31, 2017 and have made one commercial bread purchase over the last 14 years. Simply fill out the form on this page to claim your $25.00 gift card.

The gift card is electronic and members who register will receive an email starting February 1 that will allow them to load their account with a credit of $25.00. The credit can be applied towards a future purchase at Save-On-Foods, or members can opt to donate the $25.00 to a local food bank instead.

In a letter to customers, Save-On-Foods President Darrell Jones reiterates that Save-On-Foods was not part of the competition bureau investigation and had no knowledge of price-fixing. The company is offering the $25.00 gift card to More Rewards customers who may have been impacted and will also be seeking compensation from suppliers involved in the scandal.

Registration closes on April 30 and the $25.00 rebate will expire on December 31. There's a limit of one rebate per household and it cannot be used on tobacco, alcohol, prescriptions or lottery products.

      Here you Guys - another grocery chain coming forward

      We’re standing up for you
      Dear valued Save-On-Foods customers,

      I’m writing to you because we’re deeply concerned about what’s happened with the bread price-fixing issue that was going on in Canada by certain competitors and suppliers. It is important for you to know that we at Save-On-Foods had no knowledge of, nor were we involved in, this illegal activity.

      One of our competitors who has admitted guilt is providing a $25 shopping incentive to their customers. We know that you, as our valued More Rewards customer, could have been impacted with higher bread prices. So we’re making it easy for you to receive our own $25 offer, through our More Rewards program. We in turn, will seek compensation from the bread suppliers involved, in due course. You can use this $25 in our stores, and at the same time, you will be signed up for even more great offers and information. And in keeping with our commitment to supporting those less fortunate, we’ll be giving you the option to re-direct this $25 to your local food bank.
      What a bunch of crooks...they're pretending to do good meanwhile they will claim these as donations and get tax breaks. Thieves trying to get twice the profit from their previous theft.

    • They have to do something i guess, PR guys are getting paid for something.
      Also, they didn't mention that you have to have the account with them and have to sign up for the online account to claim this.

      Amazon isn't that great either. You should look into the "demands" they make to a city before they move a warehouse into there and how a Amazon warehouse can really cause hell for the people living around it. I know somebody that used to work there, the only comment was "they are a slave driver". Then I started finding out how the Amazon setup didn't really help established neighbourhoods.

      Once Amazon pushes the other retailers out what do you think Amazon is going to do? They are already openly fighting with Google (don't really care for them either).

    • This $25 is well worth paid by Loblaws. How many times you have heard the name "Loblaws" since they announced the $25 gift card ? All media put this news up as top news which basically is free advertisement for Loblaws. In reality, I don't know how much money Loblaws would have to spend in order to achieve same marketing result.

      So much hate, I must be missing something. What previous theft are they guilty of?

      This is a PR move, but I don't see any problem with them spending the marketing budget to either benefit its customers OR donate to charity (and in return getting tax breaks) if the customer choose not to take the $25.

    • Similar to Loblaws, Save-On-Foods is also offer its customer a free $25 shopping incentive to their customers due to possible bread price fixing issue.

      **EDIT** Requires the free More reward membership. Can sign up before or after this registration

      All you have to do is answer 3 questions and you can get a free $25 shopping incentive.

      1) I am over the age of majority in my home province.

      2) I had an active More Rewards card on December 31, 2017.

      3) I have purchased commercial bread from Save-On-Foods sometime in the past 14 years.


      Cheers.

      Agree with you here. A company is giving away free money and people complain. Save-On-Foods did not have to do it because they did not participate in the bread price fixing. Obviously they are doing it for PR reasons.

      There is an old saying: "Don't look a gift horse in the mouth". Certainly applicable here.

      In case you missed it, you have fed the horse throughout his life and weren't told about his existence, it wasn't gifted. Also someone else owns the horse and is offering you a free 30 minute ride or the option of gifting the ride to the neighborhood kids that will indirectly pay back the owner for the ride.

      I doubt you will get the analogy if you didn't understand what transpired here in the first place. In short, they pulled the wool over your eyes .

      They're claiming their suppliers did, and will seek compensation from them, AKA they will sue and get paid for much more than they will give away ( if we take their word that they were not involved in the scam directly ).

      I don't like this.
      I've had it for long time so doesn't matter to me but still... apparently, if you don't have their card, you are not considered a customer.

    • why the hate for save on? in Edmonton they are some of the nicest stores, with great selection of products, and top notch service. the prices are higher on some items, but if you go on 15% off day, its a lot of times cheaper then Walmart and superstore.

      Although I understand your point of view, this requirement also might be in place for ease of delivery. It'd be much easier and more environmentally friendly to electronically modify your points balance as opposed to sending out physical gift cards to everyone. The only negative is they put a time limit on it. They should have allowed people to sign up for the member rewards card at any point in time and get the $25. This would also boost their rewards membership which may also boost the chances of people actually continuing to shop at Save On Foods. Poor planning.

      Edit: Thinking about it a bit more, the time limit may be for fraud prevention since you can technically sign up for more than one more rewards card.
