Hey, did anyone else get the free chocolate or Joe Fresh jewellery offer? I get 1 free box of chocolates, I have until Dec 24 to use it. =D

Reason why I'm asking is because I'm the only one in my family to get it. I do have over 38k points and they have 10k ish though.

Same thing happening to me. I haven't gotten a 15x or 20x weekly coupon for a month now. It's always spend $15 get 2000 or spend $20 get 3000.
Just out of curiosity, what do you do when you get those lowball offers? Personally, I won't even load them and I will deliberately shop elsewhere if I don't have a 20X or better offer. And so far (knock wood), I still get at least one high value personal offer per week (20X, 12,000 points on $50, or 18,500 points on $75).

Having said that, this morning I found a 4,000 points on $40 offer, which of course I won't even load. And I got that "get 30,000 points back when you redeem 95,000". Too bad the cupboards & freezer are pretty well stocked. Oh, and I got one of my favourite offers: 4,000 points on $15 of Brands You Love. Is everyone getting that one this week?

I love this offer also. This when I stock up on butter.

Me too! $15 of butter and no name eggs at the Saturday only or Sunday/Monday only price + this coupon is a steal.

I just won't shop at Shoppers if I don't have any good offers. I'm still getting a decent offer on either Mon/Wed/Fri, but it's the week long offer that has been terrible lately.

My good offers are usually the one-day offers as well. I don't like that because dollars to donuts I won't feel like shopping on that particular day.

Can we stack this 4,000 points on $15 of Brands You Love coupon with a "3000 pts when you spend $20 on anything" coupon?

Yes. First this week you would have gotten an email offering you 2/4 choices, pick 1. Then today the offer you picked is available to load in the app with a Dec 24 expiry.

Oh, I guess I missed it because I usually only check my app on Saturdays (first day of new offers). Didn't get the email either. So it was targetted? I'm pretty sure I'm signed up to emails and am quite an active user of the program...

It's my first time getting a free item through the optimum program.

Will the price of the item count towards reaching the threshold of any "earn xxxx points when you spend yyyy" offers ?

Clearly our house is not doing enough to support SDM.
No big BONUS Offers or FREE Gifts for either of us.
One account has ~40 K in Points the other ~43 K
(Admittedly DOWN this year from our spending at SDM in 2016)

This week we both got pretty much the identical coupons
Most interesting of the lot was the one for “Brands You Love”

No: it will show on your receipt as $0 and 0 base points
