How to Check the Balance on a Sobeys Gift Card

By Taylor DiVico

Sobeys is a Canadian grocery store that offers gift cards in $25, $50 and $100 Canadian denominations. It also offers blank gift cards that you can load with your desired amount of money. You can use a Sobeys gift card at several grocery stores in Canada, including Price Chopper, IGA and Foodland. You swipe the gift card or hand it to the cashier during checkout as you would a credit card. Money you spend at the grocery store comes off of your gift card balance. You can check your card balance to find the amount of money left on it.

You can put up to $500 Canadian on a Sobeys gift card.

Step 1

Look on your gift card to find a money denomination, such as $25 or $50 Canadian. Find the most recent receipt for your gift card purchases. Look at the bottom of the receipt to find the remaining balance left on your gift card.

Step 2

Bring your gift card to a store if you cannot find the most recent gift card receipt. You can bring the card to any Sobeys, IGA, Foodland, FreshCo or Price Chopper store in Canada. Hand your Sobeys card to the cashier so she can swipe the card and print you a receipt.

Step 3

Locate your Sobeys gift card balance information on the bottom of the receipt. Write the balance down for future reference.

Step 4

Call Sobeys Customer Care toll-free at 888-821-5557 if you are unable to get to a store. Choose your preferred language and wait for an operator to pick up your call. Give your gift card number to the operator to check the balance.
