When you enter your email address on pctravel.ca (use same email as your PC Insiders membership) you'll get a pop up asking if you want to use your $99 credit.

Correct, IF it works. It didn’t for me and I did everything properly.

I just got an email offer 25K for purchasing $75 or more from SDM/beauty on my PCF MC. But I am also PCInsider member and I would get 20x regular points for buying from beauty boutique. Does it mean I will get 50K or more points for buying $75 or more from SDM/beauty?

I was wondering this as well.
I'm guessing they may not stack and may just use the offer with the higher points but I'm not sure.
Could this also stack with bonus points for specific items at beautybotique
I also have a personal 20x the points at SDM but I believe that is only available in-store, can anyone confirm this?

There's also the following promo:

Thanks. Popup window as soon as I entered my PC Insider membership email address. It took $99 off from flight purchase right away. Confirmed with PC WE MC pending charge.

The personal offers for in store at SDM do not work at beautyboutique.ca .. all other offers should stack.

That wasn't what was asked. One is a general membership perk. The other is a online offer.

Thanks, that's an amazing hot deal if they do stack!

For example if I buy just over $75 worth of items with item specific offers (ex: $24 nude by nature concealer has 10,000 bonus points), get 25,000pts for general $75 spend (on beautyboutique website), 25,000pts for using pc mastercard with over $75 purchase, and 20x the regular points from pc insiders is either 15000 (20 x 10pts x $75) or 22500 (20 x 15pts x $75), not sure which applies for pc insiders bonus.

Would I really end up getting around 95,000pts or 102,500pts (~30,000+25,000+25,000+15,000 or 22,500) for a slightly over $75 spend?

Be careful with the bonus.. The Nude by Nature bonus says "Buy 1 or more and earn 10000 PC Optimum Bonus Points".. it appears to give the 10k only once. But in theory, all stackable.

And FYI - The 20x Insider Bonus is on the base points for the card, 10 per $. So on a $75 spend, it would be 15000.

The offer I got was:

Discover the new online destination for more of the beauty you love and get 25,000 bonus PC Optimum points.*
Just use your President’s Choice Financial Mastercard® for an online beauty purchase of $75 or more at shoppersdrugmart.ca/beauty by October 12.


This should stack with PCInsider 20x points purchasing at shoppersdrugmart.ca/beauty right?

Thanks Ron!

I did a bit of testing and as long as I put different items by Nude by Nature each with quantity of 1, it's showing that I'll get the 10,000 points for each.

If this works out it's essentially getting paid to change cash into points and getting free beauty products.

If anyone else is interested and is slightly under the $75 mark, it's quite efficient to get two of "Revlon Isaac Mizrahi Loves ® Nail File" for $5.58 (for 2) and get 2500 points. (can get upto 6 of them for $16.74 and get 7500 points)

Do you think it will be 25,000 pts( PC Financial Email Promotion) + 25,000 pts (SDM Online Promotion) + 15,000 pts (Insider 20% x $75) ?
If that's the case, it is an amazing deal.

I think so, but I won't be 100% convinced until I see the points in my account.

Also don't forget to check out items with bonus PC points, I've noticed some of them are labelled incorrectly on the search page, and the true bonus points show up after you add to cart (an usually are accurate on the details page)

Okay, I just placed my order and my PC WEMC has been charged already but I don't see any points get added to my account .
I do have an email confirmation shows 26,125 pts for this order. Does it take a few days for SDM online bonus points to be awarded? For the in-store bonus event, the points always show up immediately after I check out.

Thanks.
