Any word on SDM Spend Your Points Event?

Has anyone out there got an inside scoop as to when Shopper's spend your points event will happen?

There was one at the end of November last year. Maybe they will do this again.

Not sure on date right now.

Asked a store-level employee and they don't really get advance notice.

Last year was Black Friday only, IIRC, so maybe we'll see something for the 25th.

Agreed. I was in SDM yesterday - the staff does not know. They also do not know if it will be a regular cash in your points event or the bonus type where you can spend 80,000 points for $200 instead of 95,000 points.

Last year was:

  • Sat. Nov 28 Only: Holiday Spend Your Points Event - Spend 50,000 points and get up to $100 off (that's an extra $15) or spend 95,000 points and get up to $200 off (that's an extra $30)
  • Sun. Nov 29 to Tues. Dec. 1: Get 18,500 Shoppers Optimum bonus points when you spend $75 or more on almost anything in the store (that's a $25 savings value)

I'm guessing the Spend Your Points Event this year will be on the 19th but cannot confirm.

No, the cashiers are not going to have that information.

Someone on a different site thinks that the bonus redemption will occur the weekend after a special electronics event. I imagine Shoppers will want to get as much actual cash for their electronics as possible before everyone redeems points for them.

SDM cashier just told me end of month for the Bonus redemption, was told to watch flyers. Didn't even ask, she just noticed that I had the max payout amount on my balance.
