The corporate office told me it would start Sept. 9, 2009. I originally called three weeks ago to inquire their Gift Card Promotion that did not include Chanel and many other designers. I was also told that the exclusions are now posted on their website. The Corporate office stated that they can only tell us about upcoming events a month in advance!!! No information was available about October. You can always call the corporate office. The phone numberis on the website, saks.com. I hope this helps.
