I really don't get excited about this. I personally don't like how the PC+ point loyalty program works. You only get point on very limited stuff and you have "load" the offer before you go shopping, if you don't use the PC debit card or credit card. Personally, I like the Shopper's optimum card much better. Hope Loblaw's can learn from the Shoppers

I agree, and have told them such. The extra step of "loading" is just that, an extra step serving no purpose.

-- may need to call to get your points awarded.
Or just submit it through the app.

If that really how it works for the point card, that sucks.

but if you do load the offers and follow the weekly deals you can make serious coin. for a family, you can rack up the points when those $10 for $100 or $25 for $250 offers pop up (along with the regular points), and in about a year and a half, we have over $380 on our account. I am planning on buying an xbox one during a no-tax weekend real soon.

For those who are closer to Superstore - they price match NO Frills and also you get pts on your PC card. I too avoid shopping at NO Frills if I can help it - the stores and service at Superstore is much better AND they also match other stores incl Loblaws, Shoppers, Food Basics etc.
That's true but not everyone live near a Superstore. They are few and far between. No Frills are smaller and have less inventory, services, etc. They are more like neighbourhood grocery stores.

There's 10 locations in BC now, and growing.
There is a brand new one in Vancouver, in the East Hastings/Clark Drive area, in the former Canadian Tire Store location.
Have a nice day!

I knew it was coming to Ontario soon as my last few PC plus emails have had the nofrills banner instead of the usual superstore one.

At the back of the flyer in Alberta, the following appears; as stated earlier, there are no PC Points deals in the flyer, but if you spend $75 or over you get 7500 PC points.

Loblaws would be bankrupt if they charged Whole Food prices on low/mid end groceries...that's one of the way Shoppers can fund the Optimum program (the other way is cosmetics have huge markups)

you can buy most items from Shoppers at no frill / loblaws at a fraction of the price.

Hope these marketing tracking cards(aka PC points card) don't become as widespread in the east as they seem to be in the West. Soon you won't be able to get the sale price without producing your card.

My store is getting the points system on Friday. Yey, and I can confirm that VIsa works at NoFrills, just tell them you are paying via MasterCard and quietly tap your visa :D

I checked the link and the FAQ says there are 3 ways of joining. I don't mind signing up using the app, but I am tired of getting cards. Is there any additional points given for having the PC plus card?
