GT VIPTM Terms & Conditions
Last Updated: January 14, 2019
1. Program Overview
GT VIPTM (the “Program”) is a loyalty program of Giant Tiger Stores Limited (“Giant Tiger”) for participating Giant Tiger® or Tigre Géant® independently franchised stores (“Giant Tiger Stores”). By participating in the Program, Members (as defined below) agree that they have read, understood and accepted these GT VIPTM – Terms and Conditions (collectively, these “Terms”). For further Program details and information, including the benefits of the Program (“Program Benefits”), visit GiantTiger.com/GTVIP (the “Website”). Registration, membership and all Program Benefits are offered at the sole discretion of Giant Tiger.
2. Membership Eligibility and Registration
Membership is open to individuals over the age of majority in their jurisdiction of residence who have a Canadian mailing address and an e-mail address. Membership benefits are only available to Canadian residents. If an individual is under the age of majority in his or her jurisdiction of residence, he or she must have the permission of a parent or guardian where such consent is a requirement in the individual’s jurisdiction of residence. Giant Tiger may request confirmation of such permission. Membership is restricted to natural persons only and no corporation, trust, partnership or other entity is eligible to become a Member.
To participate in the Program and obtain Program Benefits (as defined below) with a membership account (a “GT VIP Account”), an individual must become a registered member of the Program (a “Member”). Individuals are only eligible to register for one (1) GT VIP Account in the Program.
To become a Member, individuals must create a GT VIP Account online through the Website or using the mobile GT VIPTM application (the “GT VIPTM App”).
No purchase or fee is required in order to become a Member. You must agree to these Terms, and if applicable, the GT VIPTM App end user terms and conditions.
Registration requires the creation of a password necessary to access a GT VIP Account online or through the GT VIPTM App. Anyone who knows a Member’s account number and password (collectively, “Credentials”) may be able to obtain access to such GT VIP Account. Members are responsible for maintaining the secrecy and security of their Credentials, for all activities that occur using their Credentials and for notifying Giant Tiger’s Customer Service (described in Section 13) of any unauthorized use of their Credentials. The Member, and not Giant Tiger, will be responsible for any loss arising from unauthorized use of Credentials or a Member’s failure to comply with these provisions.
3. Program Benefits
Members may receive Program Benefits through the GT VIP Account on the Website, the GT VIPTM App, or upon request through other types of commercial electronic messages such as email and texts, or postal mail. Certain Program Benefits must be loaded onto the GT VIP Account online or through the GT VIPTM App, or any other means that Giant Tiger may establish from time to time. In order to create a GT VIP Account online, or to download the GT VIPTM App, visit the Website or visit your applicable app store.
Program Benefits may include, without limitation:

- Bonus Deals, for redemption at Giant Tiger Stores for groceries. Bonus Deals are treated as tender on a receipt. Bonus Deals need to be added to your GT VIP Account individually.
- Contests. Members may be eligible to enter, or be automatically entered into, contests, such as weekly draws to win purchases, vacations, home and personal makeovers and Giant Tiger gift cards, as offered by Giant Tiger from time to time. Contests are subject to additional terms and conditions set out in official rules that will be available at the time of entry. Non-Members may participate in contests; learn more.
- Other benefits, which may include personalized offers, exclusive invitations to events, and access to exclusive savings and promotions of Giant Tiger and selected partners (such as gas, fitness, banking, health, dining, entertainment and travel).
Membership must be established by displaying the GT VIP Account on the GT VIPTM App or providing the phone number registered to the GT VIP Account, before any Program Benefit can be redeemed. Photographs or other reproductions of barcodes or coupons will not be accepted. Barcodes and coupons are subject to the applicable rules of Giant Tiger for such offers.
Not all Program Benefits may be available to all Members, and are subject to time and geographic limitations and other conditions which will apply in addition to these Terms. Each Program Benefit is available once, unless expressly stated otherwise. Giant Tiger may limit quantities of products purchased or specific benefits received under Program Benefits.
4. Members’ Personal Information
Members are responsible for advising Giant Tiger of any changes to or corrections of their GT VIP Account information, including name, mailing address, e-mail address or any other required membership enrollment data, by contacting Giant Tiger Customer Service (described in Section 13) or by updating his or her GT VIP Account through the Website. Members may be required to submit documentation to support claims of GT VIP Account errors, at the sole discretion of Giant Tiger. Giant Tiger is not liable for misdirected communications such as postal mail or e-mail or any consequences thereof.
5. Cancellation of Membership
Giant Tiger may cancel any GT VIP Account for any reason in its discretion, including for any non-compliance with these Terms, the provision of any inaccurate or invalid GT VIP Account information, any attempt to deliberately damage any website or undermine the operation of the Program or GT VIP App, and any attempted assignment or transfer of the Member’s rights under these Terms.
6. Program Amendment and Termination
Giant Tiger reserves the right, in its sole discretion and without compensation, to amend, alter, withdraw or terminate the Program, including, without limitation, these Terms or any Program Benefits.
Giant Tiger may modify, in whole or in part, the following elements of these Terms:
- the eligibility conditions for becoming a Member;
- the Program registration process, administration and conditions;
- the nature of Program Benefits and the manner in which they may be obtained; and
- certain corporate information appearing in these Terms and any other changes required or recommended under applicable laws.
In the event these Terms or any aspect of the Program is restricted, suspended or changed, Giant Tiger will provide Members with advance notice by posting the amended Terms online on the Website and by sending notice (setting out the new clause or the amended clause and how it formerly read and the date on which the change will come into effect) using the Member’s email or mailing address, in each case 30 days prior to the date such amendment comes into force. Subject to the following paragraph, a Member’s continued participation in the Program following such notice will constitute consent to any amendments to these Terms or any other aspect of the Program. If the Member does not agree to any such amendments, the Member may cancel his or her membership without cost or penalty.
For residents of the Province of Québec, if any amendment entails an increase in the Member’s obligations or a reduction in Giant Tiger’s obligations, the Member may refuse the amendment and cancel his or her participation in the Program without cost, penalty or cancellation indemnity, in the manner indicated in the section of these Terms entitled “Cancellation of Membership”, within 30 days after the amendment comes into force, and the Member will then have 60 days in which to redeem any outstanding Program Benefits as of the effective date of termination that have not expired in their ordinary course. If the Member does not exercise the right to cancel his or her participation in the Program within 30 days after the amendment comes into force, the Member will be deemed to have consented to be bound by the amendment.
The Program has no predetermined date, and may continue until such date as Giant Tiger, in its sole discretion, designates as the termination date.
