Why did Telus remove Amazon and iTunes gift cards? It was nice getting a little 'gift' now and then. Now, however, the only things left in the program are contests, which have no value unless you (unlikely) win, or donations to charitues. I already give substantially to charities. The Rewards program was a nice treat. Now it is not. I was very disappointed to find the gift cards gone.

Maybe the subcontracted that out for Dell to handle as well?

As long as they don't take away the annual option to apply it to my bill I'm happy.

All reward points an options are showing on my account . Perhaps checking account info and changing up to a new password would help you. Good luck. Polecat

@polecat Joey2 was asking specifically about Amazon and iTunes gift cards. I don't see those reward options. Do you?

 

@Joey2 I do see prepaid Mastercards which better than giftcards because you can use them anywhere.

 

I wonder how many people enter the contests. If the vast majority choose something else your chances of winning may be pretty good.

Xray----- The prepaid MC can only be used at Telus stores that are signed on to the plan. Not everywhere. Polecat

You aren't the only one that looked at it too fast. It's not really a Mastercard then. It's more like a Telus gift card processed by Mastercard. Not that useful to me considering I've never bought anything from a Telus store.

YES XRAY  There is hidden animal on most sites like this whose name is Seemore and likes to hid. Fooled me a few times you have to really follow it to the very end. I don't think Telus would like us to use a $50 MC to buy into a Shaw promo. Polecat

I agree. This entertaining thread summarizes what I found when looking a few days ago. The selection's pretty limited, and much of it seems to lead back to Telus in products or services that I don't need. I did get an Amazon gift card in May, and they had iTunes then. Now, I guess I'll just save points for the annual application to my account balance, because there's nothing else of interest.

 

I don't check regularly. I'm hoping the selection goes through rotation, and they'll offer the gift cards again.

Wow... never heard of Telus rewards.  I had to google it.  Logged in and found I have 37 points.  I kept going through "more rewards" until I found that I could spend 25 points on a $25 bill credit.  So free $25.  Not bad.  Now what to do with the extra 12 points?  Guess I wait for next year because it won't let me use 10 points for a $10 bill credit.

Rewards have being offered for several years now. Read the rewards carefully prepaid mc only good at Telus stores.  Points add up when you pay your bill or purchase at store etc.
