FSA's Shopping & Gift Card Program

Buying shopping and gift cards from FSA is the same as buying cards at any store where you see racks of various cards to purchase. The difference is that the church makes a profit if you buy through us.

  • When we purchase cards through AVGEN (the card distributor), AVGEN immediately reimburses FSA the percentage amount assigned to each card; for example, when an order is placed for a $100 card for Loblaws, FSA pays AVGEN $96.50 and we keep $3.50. Voila!
  • We accept only cash, cheque and debit card payments for Shopping Card purchases. We do not accept credit cards because the transactional charge significantly erodes the profit coming back to the church. 
  • If you spend a portion of the amount on your card, the remaining amount stays on the card
  • When you have used the entire amount on the card, you need to buy another card. Cards are not reactivated.
  • You can still receive your reward points from your store.
  • We stock many popular cards so you can buy them and pay for them on the spot.
  • We have access to many other cards which you can order and receive them the next week. It is no longer necessary to prepay an order that you will pick up at a subsequent date.

If you have any questions or need more clarification do not hesitate to contact Margo Christodoulou (519-660-0191).

You can always get and fill in an order form at our table in the Atrium before worship service and at C & C after service. Like to plan ahead? Then download a form (Word Format or PDF) here and complete it. Then bring it in to the Shopping and Gift Card table on Sunday or bring it into the office during the week. If you complete it on your computer you can even save it and then send it into the office ( as an attachment. That way you are all set to pick up your cards from the table on the following Sunday. What could be more convenient?
