Re: Voucher Catalogue

Maybe a nicer scan of a recent $10 London Drugs voucher I tested out for the heck of it, scanned.. And as @darlicious previously enlightened me, it indeed it counted as an LDExtras visit. (10 visits with minimum $10 spend = $5 LD gift voucher)

 

Purchased @ 2:18PM, activated @ 4:08PM via selfserve website.

Re: Voucher Catalogue

Here's a voucher from Shell.

Active practically instantly... once I paid for this, I went to my car, and added it to my account (via *611), and got the SMS confirmation.  All done in under 5 minutes.IMG_5826.jpg

 

I don't normally use vouchers, but was taking advantage of a short-lived 10% cashback promo from Mastercard/Shell.  The only other compelling thing about Shell is that you can collect Airmiles, for those who do...

 

Anyway, if you go to Shell, you don't have to grab a card from the gift card rack... simply go to the POS attendant, ask for your preferrered voucher denomination (I don't remember all the ones available, but I think $25, $40, $60, or $100), and they'll pull out a binder, turn to the Public Mobile page, and scan the barcode corresponding to the amount you want.  You pay, and they hand you the printed voucher with PIN#, similar to the one above.

Ah very nice if they consider that an "in store purchase" that is still eligible for airmiles!

Yep.  For the $60 voucher (bought on 10/02/2019), my receipt shows I got 10 bonus Airmiles (promo?) plus 6 Airmiles for the in-store purchase.  I bought a couple $100 PM vouchers a few days later (10/08) and got 10 Airmiles each time.  I guess it's 1 AM per $10 spent?  I'm not completely sure since I am not usually a Shell customer, nor an Airmiles collector!  I collected using a friend's Airmiles number...

Re: Voucher Catalogue

@CalgaryBen  Thanks for your contribution to the catalogue. It's starting to get a real selection of vouchers for reference. That rebate promo was to good to be true....seeing as they killed it barely a week in....but the airmiles are a nice perk.

Re: Voucher Catalogue

The recent thread made me think to add a recharge result I did a while ago.

Re: Voucher Catalogue

@CalgaryBen I found the page on Shells site about airmines on in-store purchases: https://www.shell.ca/en_ca/motorists/loyalty-and-payment/air-miles.html

 

1 AIR MILES® Reward Mile for every $10 purchased in-store in a single transaction**

* Offer valid at participating Shell retail locations.

**Before taxes and excludes tobacco products, service bay repairs, and Shell Gift Cards. No fuel purchase necessary. Offer valid at participating Shell retail locations. Maximum number of 10 reward miles to be awarded per qualifying transaction.

 

So, you shouldn't buy more than a $100 Public Mobile voucher (or other items+voucher) in a single transaction, or you'll possibly miss out on some airmiles.

Re: Voucher Catalogue

What a great idea! 

The first voucher I bought was from PetroCanada. I paid by cash and was charged $1 transaction fee plus 13% tax. I wanted to buy $100 but was told the maximum they could sell was $60. The attendant wanted me to buy another $40 voucher and to charge me another $1 fee. I didn't.

I tried dialing 611 to enter it right away in my car and it did not work. I went home and used my self-serve account online and it did not work either. Then I realized I was trying to enter the Serial Number instead of the PIN #.  They were both 12 digits and appeared one above the other. When I entered the correct PIN number, it worked right away (within 1/2 hour of my purchase).

The next time I bought a voucher was from a different PetroCanada station. Same $1 transaction fee. The PIN number appeared on a different location of that voucher!

So vouchers from different PetroCanada station can look different too.

 

Unfortunately, I only found this thread today and have already thrown away my vouchers. So no pictures to show here.

 

Take away:

1. PetroCanada charges $1 fee for their vouchers. Maximum $60 at a time.

2. Be sure to look for the correct PIN #, they can appear in different locations.

3. PetroCanada's vouchers work right after purchase (at least the two I have bought so far).

 

Question:

Do any of the other outlets charge transaction fees for their vouchers?

Re: Voucher Catalogue

@hyT, Canadian Tire doesn't charge a fee. Well, they sell Public Mobile vouchers, but it isn't a Canadian Tire brand. There vouchers says it takes 24 hours to activate. But the ones I got in 2017, took 72 hours to activate. I would never ever buy a voucher again!

 

I can't handle the stress of losing $160 like that!
