So I received a response from MasterCard and they are sorry I am missing points but cannot help me lol and told me to contact PC Optimum instead....
Just now I was trying to reply to PC Optimum care to let them know what MasterCard said and my messages just keep coming back undeliverable.

Ughhhhh going to have to call and see what they say.

Ah yes, the RUNAROUND! Gotta love that! It's happened to me before when I was having issues with my PCFMC points.

Seems like these points that post 'later on' are not very reliable. Gotta keep track of 'em!

Perhaps it's just as well that after Nov. 20th we can no longer stack the Insiders points with the bonuses....seems like doing any sort of an inquiry is next to impossible if no one wants to take responsibility for them....

I am waiting to do some gift set purchases on the website, and then I am going to pack it in!

Good grief! Yes, let us know what they say! And this whole business of the points posting in 2-4 weeks instead of 10 business days is hogwash. Guaranteed that their system is just acting up again and missing some of them entirely, and they are likely hoping their fixes will pick them up so they don't have to deal with them manually.

This Insiders program is a PITA given how much time and effort is required to monitor and constantly follow-up on missing points. Not impressed so far.

Received e-mail this morning that the surprise box is coming soon. Maybe that will make this program worth it?

Does anyone know with which shipping company the surprise boxes are shipped? Canada post or couriers? And does PC send out tracking numbers?

Nope.

It was just a box of a few full sized specialty products from the PC Black Label line

Some would say far more classy than a bunch of trial sized samples & Coupons

Ya gotta remember the intended demographic is not just female
As this is a Membership by Invite Only Group hinging on having a PC MC

Food plays well with all members. Upscale food items even better

To follow up on this.. I made a $117.60 online Shoppers Beauty purchase on a 20x day.

Received:
31500 points - 20x purchase on website
23520 points - PC insider 20x PCF points
1176 points - base PCF points
2352 points - PCF WE bonus

58548 points total - pretty much 50% of spend. Awesome deal!

(Plus $4.20 ebates!)

Hi

I am planning to make a similar purchase today. Would you be able to tell me how long it took for PC Insiders points to appear in your account?

Thanks

Did you end up receiving the PC Insiders points for your beauty boutique purchase?

By the way, I just spoke to someone at PC Insiders and he told me they are going to get a dedicated team from 20th November to take care of just PC Insiders queries (including points).

Thanks

I've had a couple experiences with this now.. from a couple days up to a week after the charge posted to my card.
