But they're cooking up something great for us ;)
I went to buy a couple of things yesterday and their system was very slow plus none of the PC Plus part was working...so I am having a little trouble believing the message on their website especially when they have issues every single month.

WOW. I never even gave a second thought about these points just always used my pc card when buying groceries.

Was doing an unrelated task at the service desk when the woman nearly fainted when telling me I had 3,500,000 points. Said the highest she had seen was 1,000,000.

I love random point discoveries.

I'd love discovering $3500 too. How'd you never see that on your receipt before though?

That's $3500! I'd seriously think about using some of those points - remember when Shopper's Optimum accounts were hacked?

I'd spend it on groceries everytime you'd head to the store xD.

You don't need a woman from the service desk to tell you how many points you have earned. It is printed on your receipt. Are you sure?

A photo of it would be good to see.

Thanks for this thread. Been using a black pc mastercard forever and I thought all the new PCPlus hubbabalo was that there were now items in the regular flyer that gave those bonus points and you could get a points card without needed a PC mastercard or debit card.

I just logged in and loaded my offers.

I don't think he even looked. Just scrunches up the receipt and stuffs in pocket. I wonder if he's using the pc mc.

That is true. Of the times I've taken the receipt I never look at it. Usually it's just those "fill out this survey for a chance to win free groceries for a year"

Didn't know it was on the bottom.

I do have the PC Mastercard. Spent some points for the first time today on groceries.

lol that's why cashiers sometimes ask if you would like to check your points xD. Occasionally now the computer will ask you if you want to redeem your pc points at the till.

just looked at the flyer. Friday and SAturday only. 3 free items when you spend $250 in store. 4 lbs of strawberries ( 2 lb clamshells) when you spend 150. And $25 worth of pc plus points when you spend $250 in store using a pc plus card. So uh that's 3 altogether. ;)

bump so it doesn't get lost. Seems like the spend $250 get $25 pc points offer is back this week. Doesn't seem like you need to load the offer. So it's open to everyone.

$250 is a bit much for me but these spend $xx and get X,000 points are great when combined with shelf offerings of points and personal offers. Just don't go loading the cart with high priced processed junk foods just to get 10% in points.
