Sobeys Reward Program
Offered by: Mount Pearl Sport Alliance

Earn FREE MONEY with the Sobeys Reward Program! Earn an extra 4% on grocery spending toward your child’s activities. How? Purchase Sobeys gift cards at the Mount Pearl Sport Alliance! We will put 4% of what you purchase in your child’s sport account. Then, upon request, we will send the money available in your child’s account to pay for sport fees. These certificates cost dollar for dollar. When you pick up $100 worth of certificates, you will pay $100.

For example, if you spend $100 a week on groceries, you will earn $208 per year for your child’s sport(s). Multiply this by family, friends, co-workers, etc. and it can easily accumulate! These gift cards can be used at any Sobeys, Foodland, Needs, Lawton’s, TRA, or Price Chopper, across Newfoundland & Labrador, and they are available in denominations of $25, $50, $100 and $500.
