Just transferred some points and now I'm waiting to see if they appear in my account.... hopefully they show up before the day ends to keep this simple.

Thanks, just transfered my mom's points over (she had $10) and now maximized the conversion rate for tomorrow.
Smart thinking.

I am having hard time linking / registering old cards, PC MasterCard and Optimum, on www.pcoptimum.ca. Only one MC worked. Another MC, one PC Plus account and two Optimum are giving me "Our apologies, an unknown error has occurred".

Any suggestions?

Brutal start to the change over. Can't even send an email through the app or website to get assistance.

This is funny. Contact us by email throws an "Our apologies, an unknown error has occurred" as well indeed.
