RBC Rewards has a promo right now offering 30% off select gift cards, from select retailers. Some of these retailers sell Apple products such as the latest Apple Watch Series 6, so therefore you can save 30% off.
“Save 30% when you redeem RBC Rewards points for select gift cards from Sporting Life, The Source, Door Dash, Landmark Cinemas, Oxford Properties, Harry Rosen and more,” explains the promotion.
The Source currently sells Apple Watch Series 6 and SE. If you redeem your points for gift cards here, you can save 30% off after tax on your Apple Watch Series 6, which is pretty unheard of for a newly released Apple product.
Below is some example math for Apple Watch Series 6 (prices using 13% tax in Ontario):
- 40mm: ($529 x 1.13) x 0.7 = $418.44; buy $597.77 ($529+tax) in The Source gift cards
- 44mm: ($569 x 1.13) x 0.7 = $450.07; buy $642.97 ($569+tax) in The Source gift cards
It’s also worth noting Oxford Properties includes malls such as Yorkdale Shopping Centre, Square One and Upper Canada Mall, for example, which has Apple Stores. Redeeming for gift cards for Oxford Properties may be a better method if you have one of their malls in your city, for a better selection of Apple Watches and discounts on Apple products in general.
This means you could stock up on Oxford Properties gift cards, then go buy Apple Store gift cards with them, to use online ahead of your upcoming iPhone 12 purchase.
The RBC Rewards promo started September 17 and is valid until September 30, 2020 at 11:59 pm EST.
