Would you pay an annual fee to join a loyalty program?

Is Loblaws pitches upgraded loyalty program for $9.99 a month for premium perks - Business - CBC News a new initiative or a rehash of existing programs?

Re: Can't read a Private Message I allegedly had

A workaround until the problem is identified and resolved is via your User Control Panel, which is accessed via the dropdown menu from your username beside the Private messages link. The direct link is ucp.php?i=ucp_pm
