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?


@hyT  hi I haven't heard of others charging a fee I guess I won't be using petro can

@iliketotalk 

   Thanks for contributing! This is the first Ive heard of a transaction fee being charged for a voucher. Ive only heard of fees for online purchases. Even convenience stores that ive spoken to that display a public mobile sales outlet sign dont charge a fee.

I'm not sure if all vendors use the same system and the same barcodes, but this might be worth a try (worse case scenario, it doesn't ring up right, and you revert back to your original plan/method of getting a voucher).

 

Shell's PM barcodes, that I know about, are:

$60 PM prepaid: 00629018089700:

@CalgaryBen 

Nice one....that absolutely should work. That way if your local pm voucher seller doesn't have those bar codes they could scan those ones. Like shoppers only have $20 and $40 vouchers. Hmmm... I'm going to London drugs today maybe I can get the $10 upc code from them.

Re: Voucher Catalogue

@darlicious  Another sample of payment voucher for your catalogue.

Here is a picture of the payment voucher I bought at a Shell Canada gas station today May 27, 2020. The PIN number is very obvious to see near the top. It is effective immediately. I entered it into my account by dialing 611 within minutes of buying it. Got a text from PM re: successful payment within 2 minutes.

AND... NO extra transaction fee, unlike the previous vouchers I bought from Petro-Canada.
