The updated app showed a message to the lines of "You can hold a maximum of 3 offers for the next week. There's a limit to how many times you can hold an offer."
Anyone know if that second sentence means that the same offer can't be held from one week to the next, to the next, etc. or if it means that we have a limit of holds we're able to use in a given time period (ex. 50/year or something).

Is the $1.99 sale price just for this week?
I checked the date on the shelf tag and it said from November 28 in both the from and to dates so I don't know.

I also had the 200 points for each dollar spent on PC frozen vegetables. The PC vegetables were 2 for $5 at Superstore. Bought 4 bags of vegetables for $10 and, stacked with the Guiding Stars offer, got 5,000 points. I was pretty happy with that deal. Half price vegetables.

I have had offers I repeatedly held, week over week, that would eventually have the "hold" greyed out and I was unable to hold it any longer. So I assume they are referring to a limit as to how many times you can hold an offer week-to-week.

Racked up 6000 points today thanks in part to 'Spend $25 on beauty products and get 5000 points'. Disposable razors count as a beauty product.

Got the spend $175 get 20,000 pts

Thought to myself "how am I gonna do that within reason?"

My buddy and I are splitting an apartment and after Christmas shopping I said lets do a grocery run instead of separate, both spent $120 each on one bill. I got 20,000 pts + an extra 9000 pts on all the other stuff so almost $30 back. I now have $110 to redeem and am just short of having $120.

Think we'll do the double shop all the time now considering how much I just got.

Yea, but I'm saving it all until I get $200+. I have no need to redeem right now as money coming in is alright so I'm not struggling, I'll redeem on the next console launch then sell the console ;)

I meant racking up $175 would be easier at RCSS unless the offer had exclusions you did not mention. Not sure why you would bother to redeem something just to sell it when you can redeem for giftcards instead...

I would actually probably do the GC thing instead.

How would it be easier at RCSS?

RCSS last time I went had bigger priced items to spend on and you would not have to haul $175 of groceries. If there are stuff you have been holding off on and if RCSS' prices are competitive or they will pm. If the offer is Every $175 then you could get 40,000 or 60,000 without rewarding your buddy which I assume you had to do.

Rewarding my friend? He doesn't have or care about the points so the all of it I paid for and he paid me his half, I don't need any expensive things at this point anyways.

Oh I am sure your buddy is thinking of ways you will make up for the favor...
