Consumers can now sign up for the $25 dollar Loblaws cards from the price fixing of bread
Today is the day consumers can sign up to receive a $25 gift card from Loblaws, related to the grocer's role in the price fixing of bread, but the agreement comes with some fine print.
Loblaws says it reserves the right to limit the number of cards that will be issued under the program, although the site does not include a number where it may be capped.
The cards will have no expiry date but anyone who wants to participate must do so by May 8.
The card also has to be used for food products.
Holders can't use them to buy alcohol, tobacco, gasoline or cash withdrawals at in-store ATMs
But fine print at the bottom also makes it clear that if you sign up, $25 will be deducted from any potential payouts from lawsuits down the line.
Late last year, Loblaws announced it would give out the cards as an olive branch to customers who were angered by the grocer's admission that it had conspired to inflate the price of
packaged bread between 2002 and 2015.
