How much is a LOT of HBC Points? What do you do with them??
So I'm wondering now about these HBC Points. How much is a lot? What do you do with them? Does HBC have the same 'bonus rewards' concept? I know there are occasional 'bonus coupons' where you get 10,000 points (not sure if they're stackable?) or such for buying over a certain amount. I read and it seems there's no bonus redemption other than a pathethic 100,000 for $20 GC in Christmas? Otherwise, the best deal is to switch to airmiles and then BOGO movies? or Car Washes? But even then, the rewards is frankly thievery. Am I getting it???
Can someone give me a quick crash course on HBC Points and how to maximize them-if this is even possible?
We have an HBC MC so we know we get double points., but still, seems like a joke to accumulate enough points to do anything significant.
I walked into Zellers yesterday and managed to get that XBOX ELITE HALO edition after the deal ended, so I was looking at the receipt today and realized that even with our hbc mc, all we got was 100points/$1. What does that even translate to? I read 80,000pts for a $10 GC???? WTF??? That's like a what? 1/20% cashback?? Um..SCAM?
