Another week...

As I said back in Reply # 4209 (when we discussing a notable decrease in the number of Offers) ...
I only got 20 JUST FOR YOU OFFERS this week ... and NO BONUS OFFERS

Most interesting:

* 200 Points for every $ 2 Spent on Bread & Rolls Baked In-Store
* 400 Points for Old Mill English Muffins
* 200 Points for every $ 1 Spent on Bulk Foods
* 300 Points for Strawberries
* 200 Points for every $ 1 Spent on Limes
* 500 Points for Watermelon
* 200 Points for Romaine Lettuce
* 3 seperate Offers on Black Label Products
* 200 Points for every $ 1 Spent on Books or Magazines

The In-Store Baked Bread & Rolls Offer is 200 Points for $ 2
So not the best... but considering it is something we buy at least once a week, any offer is better than none

Looks like the Watermelon (another summery exotic fruit) has replaced the ubiquitous Pineapple this week

Romaine Lettuce... uh no, in light of the recent news (ecoli warning)... gonna skip that one

The PC Black Label Offers are nice... might delay them in hopes of also getting a Black Label Bonus Offer that I can then stack

The Books & Magazine Offer was the one I DELAYED from last week. Hoping they have a particular New Year Issue that I am on the look out for.

I have the three saved from last week : 20 % on Beef, Chicken and Deli Meat.

And then 20 % on
PC Frozen Fruit
PC Frozen Vegtable
PC Dog Food
PC Soda Pop
PC Black Label ( BL ) Jam
NN Pasta Sauce

And then 20 % on
Mushrooms
Peppers

And then
500 on Blackberries
600 on Butter
500 on PC Special Breads
800 on PC BL crisps
1000 on PC BL Ice Cream
500 on White Milk
What I notice about this week versus others is that ALL OFFERS are PC brands or Groceries.
There are not any "Brand Name" offers like Lays, Nestle, Pedigree ,Hershey, ( Even Klondike bars - which are staple for me ) Simply Juice etc... that I typically have.

So maybe the "Sponsored " contracts are not out yet - because of the PC Optimum merge or something ???
And PC is just using their own products- therefore less offers.

Anyway I can fast track my request to convert my Shoppers Optimum card to a PC Optimum card? And will I get a new number? or will I continue to use the same number? apparently PC numbers are longer than shoppers numbers, which will they settle for?

The scratch off pins is really only a hassle for the crooks Upside-down Face

They were implemented to protect the rest of SDM Consumers who actually bought the GCs

The difference between old & New here is also $ 6.25 ... so in your case the difference is awash.

I’d only jump on a SDM Redemption Event if there was stuff I wanted, and there was a Points Back Option... then ya it would be worthwhile

For now, I’m saving my SDM Optimum Points now to roll over, cause I truly think the NEW Program won’t be any worse than the current one at Shoppers

But it’s an individual decision for sure

Just a coincidence.

I got both the Books & Magazine Offer this week, as well as one from Lay’s & one from Kellogg’s

I also replied to your post in the SDM Optimum Topic

No way to get a NEW PC Optimum Card early

Rollover / Launch happens February 1st

Everything changes on that date... Cards, Account Numbers, Website & App
