There is a membership fee for this program, but a 30
day free trial is available.
Many people take advantage of the trial to order a
large number of gift cards and then cancel their membership
(after the rebate is received).
If you willing to do a little more work then you can
stay with the program, exercise all the rebate opportunities
and recover an amount in rebates much greater than the cost of
the membership fee.
A free $25 gift card is offered during on-line sign up
(not MBNA phone solicitation). In order to receive the gift
card you need to return a short survey found in your
How to Join
There are multiple ways to sign up for this program:
- Make a purchase through VistaPrint.ca.
Pay via credit card. Disable pop-up blocking. Look for offers
for a free $25 gift card or survey during order confirmation.
Note: sometimes the At
Home offer is displayed instead. $12.95 per month (tax
- Purchase a membership at LavaLife.com.
Sometimes they have LifeStyle Rewards enrolment offers.
- Credit Card telemarketing offer (Canadian Tire
Financial, CapitalOne, CitiBank, Desjardins, MBNA,
HSBC, Laurentian, National Bank). Call in and say you
heard about the offer "from a friend". You need to
have a participating bank credit card to use this method.
Note that you don't get the membership number right away, so
you need to wait for the arrival of your membership kit or
phone in to LifeStyle Rewards. $139.95 + tax for first year,
$149.95 for each subsequent year.
- Sign up for the free trial toward the end of a
month, record your membership number given at the end of sign
up and then log on to the
program site (Postal Code in upper case) to order your gift
cards. Since the free trial allows for 30 days + an
additional 14 days receiving the mailing you have time to
order twice, cancel after you receive the rebates on your
credit card (check you online statement). Enroll again online
by varying your address and/or phone number and/or credit
- If you plan to stay with the program, follow as
above but order all the rebates as well, phone in to ask what
additional rebates you are eligible for (ask specifically for
gas, dining, and hotel).
- If you are staying with the program, phone in after
the end of your free trial and request a lower monthly rate.
Say "your friend" is also a member and is paying
$12.95 / month. Also, request the "Final Billing
Offer". For those accepted this allows them to keep the
membership for the remainder of the year without being
changed any additional monthly fees (only applicable to
members on monthly payment plans).
- When you receive your welcome package, immediately
return the free $25 gift card survey, you should receive the
gift card within 8 weeks of signing up (membership must be
active), cancel after receiving the gift card, if desired.
- Chapters, Coles, and Indigo all accept the same gift
cards. Max out all to get $1500 in cards.
- If you plan to make a large purchase at Sears, order
the Sears Travel cards. They are accepted at any Sears outlet
the same as the other cards, but have $50 value as opposed to
$25. Using fewer cards will take less transaction time. You
may also order both types of Sears cards to use toward your
purchase (even on the same transaction).
- Purchase the maximum amount of the popular gift
cards even if you don't require them for personal use or
gifts. Sell them at a 10% discount or trade them for ones that you need.
- You are only supposed to have one membership per
household, but many people have multiple memberships by using
different credit card numbers and/or address and/or
variations on their name. There's no problem having a
membership in each of the programs, so you can subscribe to At Home or At Home+, SavingSmart, and
Galleria or Galleria+ as
well. The latter being the safest method of exploiting the
programs, as MemberWorks will cancel multiple
memberships in the same program, if discovered.
