I was on the call with OLG this week. As some would have guessed, they are doing a recall of most of the cards whose barcode starts with the following:

07675030892

There was another barcode set that i barely recalled due static on the call. but it included 30876.

So, don't buy any GC's that contains these numbers.

Esso Extra program is ending... so sad.....

Effective January 18, 2022 customers will be able to redeem PC Optimum™ points for fuel and car wash rewards at Esso™ stations across Canada.

With the ability to redeem PC Optimum™ points at Esso stations, the Esso Extra™ program will end on January 17, 2022.

Esso Extra members can continue to earn and redeem as usual until January 17, 2022 and/or convert their Esso Extra points to PC Optimum™ points from January 18, 2022–April 30, 2022.^

^ To protect your points, you may need to show a government-issued photo ID that matches the information on your Esso Extra profile when you redeem and/or convert your Esso Extra points at a station.

any idea if Esso will give out PC points for lottery purchases?

I know petro canada still give out points on lotto. Don't know if any other gas station will still do that.

Esso won't, I tried to use the PC optimum card and lotto purchases don't count.
It still does for Esso cards, but that is ending soon.

Did anybody try using Giftcard.ca lately?
It has E-giftcards and are easy to use on phone or print out.
I've tried to buy in multiples of $100 gift cards and no issues.

The only problem is you need to input your credit card info each time.
Also, they only take Visa or Mastercard only. No Amex.

Only advantage I can think is to buy with credit card and use at places that do not accept credit cards ? My thoughts the risk of gift cards/site etc do not justifie the benefits here .

Speaking of which.... Red I have gift cards that start with 07675030892 which you mention are recalled? Are these prone to not work?
