How to register to receive $25 Loblaw card after bread price-fixing arrangement admission
The company expects three million to six million people will receive the gift card



VANCOUVER — Loblaw Companies Ltd. is offering customers a $25 gift card as a goodwill gesture after admitting the company participated in an industry-wide bread price-fixing arrangement.

“This conduct should never have happened,” said Galen G. Weston, CEO, during a conference call with analysts Tuesday.

“The gift card is a direct acknowledgment of that to our customers. We hope that they’ll see it as a meaningful amount that demonstrates our commitment to keeping their trust and confidence,” he said in response to how the company arrived at the card’s $25 value.

Here’s how to redeem the offer:

Customers can visit LoblawCard.ca and enter their email address to be notified once registration opens.

The company expects registration to begin on Jan. 8.

Full details will follow, but broadly speaking, visitors to the site will have to declare that they are the age of majority or older, said spokesman Kevin Groh, in an email.

The age of majority is 18 in Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario, P.E.I., Quebec and Saskatchewan. It is 19 in B.C., New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia and the three territories.

They will also have to declare that they bought certain packaged bread products at one of the eligible banner stores in Canada before Mach 1, 2015, he said.

Registration closes May 8.

The company expects three million to six million people will receive the gift card.

Loblaw and George Weston Ltd. revealed Tuesday that they participated in an industry-wide bread price-fixing arrangement from late 2001 to March 2015, but tipped off Canada’s competition watchdog and will receive immunity in the ensuing investigation.

So if you stole a loaf of Bread and got caught what would happen?

Amazing how these Corporations get away with this for $25.00 each. And don't think they didn't think this plea bargain through. The majority of people, Loblaws shoppers or not, will spend more than the $25.00 so this is a win-win for them.

They should have been made to pay, on the high estimate, 25 x 6 mill = $150,000,000.00 to food banks..........

Why reward women's shelters? I'm the one who overpaid for bread.

I meant to say ' hot link', you're right, the link is buried in there, nothing like a full page article for one piece of information.

71-year-old anti-poverty activist has filed a $1-billion class-action lawsuit against several grocers after Loblaw Companies Ltd. and George Weston Ltd. revealed Tuesday that they participated in an industry-wide bread price-fixing arrangement for more than a decade.

Irene Breckon, president of the Anti-Poverty Coalition in Elliot Lake, Ont., regularly bought loaves of Country Harvest bread at a No Frills grocery store.

When she heard that Loblaws was offering their customers a $25 gift card as a gesture of goodwill, Breckon said she was outraged.

“When I first thought about it, I thought a $25 gift card for 14 years . . . is nothing,” Breckon told the Star on Saturday night.

“My biggest concern is that these people have been overcharged for all those years for such a basic necessity in life. Bread is a staple and many people need it. I’m hoping these corporations get punished and I’m hoping that people will receive better reimbursement.”

I donated my $25 to the food bank run by our church. Save me the trouble of actually shopping at Loblaws.

According to our Lions treasurer one of the drugstores owned by Loblaws (SHoppers?) is also offering the same deal. He wanted us to all get the cards and give them to the food bank.

I applied for one way back when but haven't seen it yet was thinking about it the other day will have to find out why happened.

I put in for one a couple of months back. I'm thinking that it may never come.

When mine arrives I’ll put it on the collection plate. It will end up at the local women’s shelter.
