I got an interesting one today... in my weekly offers, I have the same item, twice, with different points... one at $1/100 and another at $1/300.
Since other offers stack, I'm assuming this one will as well. Off to the store to see what happens, lol.

Pretty bummed about this whole click and collect thing. I spent over an hour tonight making a large order ($250+) online. I go through the entire process and when I press the Place order button it keeps asking me to select a time. I select one and press the Place order again but it just asks to select a time again. WTF??? We called all of their help lines but they've gone home for the night. BRUTAL! Now I will have to go into the store and spend another 1.5 hours getting all of this stuff. I spent the time doing this tonight because I don't have time tomorrow to go shopping.

Seriously you get me all the way through the system and the one place you fail is the very last step of confirming the order?? That's pretty bad business.

I think you have to be using either a PC debit or PC MC...pretty sure that PC Plus members don't get this bag credit.

You also need to make sure the cashier has entered all the correct transactions and codes for every bag you didn't use. Some will do that without asking. Some will do it only if asked. And some won't know what to do (or feign it) when you ask.

You then have to check your receipt to make sure they did as you asked, and then check your online PC points transaction log to ensure that the points eventually got credited to your account. If that doesn't happen in due course then you have to dig out your receipts and make a points enquiry, then wait for a response.

All that for a lousy 1¢ or 2¢ per bag :rolleyes:

You could just tell the cashier how many bags you have, then trust they will punch it in properly since it is only a penny or two a bag. Why on earth would you follow up on a transaction difference on $0.05 is beyond me - if it takes you a minute to complain (that's being generous) then you are valuing your time at $3/hr. Might as well join a couple of those reputable survey sites and make more than that.

Hmmm... what part of my sarcastic "All that for a lousy 1¢ or 2¢ per bag :rolleyes: " is our poor TrollerK struggling so hard to comprehend?

What part of "No need to make a mountain out of a molehill" does our resident complainer not understand?

You take whatever opportunity you can to try and poke at things in a negative light that you yourself use on a regular basis (so hey, can't be all that bad). Time to get rid of that negative attitude, it'll help you a lot in your life and make you much more enjoyable to be around.

I try to point out some of the downsides of PC Points so as to save others the hassle of learning them the hard way as I once did. If you don't like the "negative light" then turn it off and live in the dark. It's called the Ignore List.
that you yourself use on a regular basis

Wrong againas usual. I don't use the PC Points bag rebate. I tried and gave up in frustration.

I really do not want to ignore you - I think your posts are very insightful on how to be a negative nancy and someone needs to provide a little bit of realism and balance to them so that people do not think PC Plus is some horrible program that no one benefits from. Reading through your posts is enough to scare most people away, yet it's an amazing program. My store had a sign at their tills, in the past year their store gave away over $1,500,000 in PC Points. Yet you never see anything positive about it...

As usual, you do not see the big picture and live in your own sheltered world. I was referring to the PC Points program, which you continually knock yet repeatedly use. Sorry, I really didn't think I would have to point that out to you but I guess I did...

The only boxes of meat I have seen in my RCSS are the "Butcher's Box" - a box of meat that contains various BBQ cuts: steaks, ribs, etc. It's a pretty big box of meat.
