Yesterday, I purchased 3 $500 vgc in one transaction. Only received one $10 coupon.

If you want multiple coupons, the best bet is to do multiple, separate $100 vgc purchases.

You should have done 3 single $500 vgc transaction for $30 coupon. Are the fees same for $100 vgc? This could be lucrative if fees were low...

I routinely get $1.17 per gallon off at SA. VERY easy to accumulate SA Rewards points. 8,950 points = $0.50/gallon off up to 25 gallons, doubled on Tuesdays. Many SA's take other coupons as well, so I have a 7 cent coupon, also doubled on Tuesdays. Then they give you another 3 cents/gallon for using the SA Rewards card. Now I hardly ever go anywhere else. In fact I am planning on giving my $0.50+ MyCubReward to a neighbor/friend and keep getting my $1.17/gallon off.

Exactly, or even 15 x $100 vgc. Heck, even with a $5.95 fee, a $100 gift card nets you $4.05 cash in pocket after the $10 coupon plus any rewards on the card you purchased it with. Was a great deal with a $10 coupon for every $100 spent, but still is not a bad deal.

stopped in to pick up a coulple gc and spend some coupons. The new $10 off coupon has an expiration date of 1/11/2015. Did Cub say how long the gc promotion was running? only one coupon per gc transaction now.

I think it goes until Christmas. I picked up another one yesterday and the coupon didn't print. I asked the manager about it and she couldn't figure out why. Tried to do some override that failed and then just gave me $10 cash. That works!

With the combination of this and Redbird, things are looking good in Minny. Let the good times roll ^

They don't need ID for $200 gc, but they do need it for $500. Anyone figure out what the threshold is? Maybe $499 would not need manager override and ID?

I tried the $500 today, it did not print the coupon. It looks like they over corrected the multiple coupon issue to not print any.

They didn't over correct. The promo intended to work on $25 and $50 card only.

It only works MasterCard. Did you buy Visa by chance?

Go to your store, ask the manager to see the email from corporate where the "fail safe" code(five digits) is on. The list of eligible cards are listed I that email.

I know the list is not in any of the ads, compliant to corporate, don't do that to the frontline store empolyees please!

Btw, this promo has been on and off for a long long time.

If you know the employee and that person knows the fail safe code, you can have as many of those coupons as you want.

I did.

I swore the ad said visa good thru 12/24. This was the ad that came out while the $20 was still running.

The in-store signage I saw only listed MasterCard. Maybe there was a change.
