When I purchase a Gift Card online, how is it shipped? 

Gift cards ordered alone, and not in combination with other products, will be shipped via Canada Post by the shipping method you choose during checkout. There are two flat rate shipping methods available when Gift Cards are purchased alone: regular letter mail or registered mail. The letter mail flat rate is $3.00 per 1-3 Gift Cards and the registered mail flat rate is $12.00 for any number of Gift Cards. Tracking is not available with the letter mail shipping option. Gift Cards ordered alone and shipped regular letter mail cannot be tracked online.

Gift Cards purchased at the same time as other products will be shipped with the rest of your order using the shipping method you choose during checkout.  Gift Cards do not affect the cost of shipping when they are purchased in combination with other products.
