How A Gift Card From AMA Can Help You Save 

By AMA Staff

With the rising cost of groceries and everyday items, many Albertans are looking for ways to spend smarter, especially over the holiday season. An easy way to do that is with AMA gift cards, which can help save on holiday dinners, entertaining and gifting. Simply buy a gift card from AMA and receive five percent cash back in reward dollars® in your AMA account.

Reward dollars can be used for everything— from your membership and vehicle registration, to movie and attraction passes, to vacations at AMA Travel. You can even use them to buy more gift cards.

Party prep

Gift cards can help you cover the cost of groceries for holiday entertaining at stores, including Safeway, Sobeys, FreshCo and IGA. A President’s Choice gift card can be used at grocery stores that sell PC products, including Extra Foods, No Frills and Real Canadian Superstore.

Get ready to wrap

Gift cards can also help with other holiday expenses. Indigo gift cards can be used to buy greeting cards, wrapping paper and holiday décor. At Shoppers Drug Mart, a gift card can help tackle any holiday to-do list, with items ranging from beauty products to gift sets.

Unforgettable moments

If you’d rather gift an “experience,” a gift card for The Keg or Earls is a great way to treat friends or family to a night out. There’s also the Ultimate Dining Card, which is valid at a wide selection of restaurants, and showing your AMA membership card when you dine serves up to an additional 10 percent in savings at restaurants like Harvey’s, East Side Mario’s, Swiss Chalet, Original Joe’s and Montana’s BBQ & Bar.

Foolproof gifts

A gift card from Cineplex or Indigo makes a great stocking stuffer or Secret Santa gift. And for that hard-to-buy- for niece or in-law, the Shopping.ca gift card is redeemable at most stores at Southgate Centre in Edmonton and Cross Iron Mills in Calgary. You can also purchase select digital gift cards, which makes last-minute shopping a breeze.
