If you plan to claim $25 from Loblaws for the price fixing scandal that the grocery store giant owned up to last year, today is the first day to log on to loblawcard.ca and start the process.
The website has been up for several weeks, but there weren’t many details about how the company planned to role out the rebate program. As of today the website has now been updated with a sign-up form and many more details, including a full list of products that saw their prices hiked. Essentially, anyone who purchased any of the named products at any Loblaws store (which includes brands like No Frills, Superstore, Provigo, and many others) between 2002 and March of 2015 is entitled to participate. No proof of purchase is required.
Loblaws says it reserves the right to limit the number of cards that will be issued under the program. The cards will have no expiry date, but the program itself does. Anyone who wants to participate must do so by May 8th. Participating in the program also requires you to give up personal information, including your name, date of birth, address and other contact information, mainly because the company needs that in order to mail out the cards. Loblaws says it will not use the information for marketing purposes.
It should also be noted that participating in the program doesn’t preclude you from joining any class-action lawsuits against Loblaws. You can read the fine print and all of the other specific details here: https://www.loblawcard.ca/
