Look under adult classs, not wfd class. It would be held in the evening. Wfd classes are normally around lunch hour

These Holiday Insideers classes would bascically be a full 3 course dinner - you will not leave hungry !

The WFD classes have two recipes - and they give you back a $ 10 gift card to the store. Most people go right downstairs and buy another class.

Added an account to my “household”. Since then my personal offers have decreased by about 70 percent and suck. Anyone else have this happen to them?

Ya IMO the organized / promoted “PCO Household Accounts” suck
Fewer Offers etc

If you look at the Weekly Offers Topic
PC Optimum - Offers List (2018) = http://forums.redflagdeals.com/pc-optim ... 8-2230723/

You will see that a whole bunch of us RFD Points Hounds are just utilizing multiple cards / accounts for people in our homes
I have an Account, and my SO has an account
We share info (and cards / key fobs)
So that we have one for the others account
And it’s not difficult... just got to plan your purchases a bit more
And which offers are who’s account

Not unusual now for us to see 30 to 50+ Offers between us per week now using this method
Takes a bit more planning / mgmt
But definitely the best way to make the most of the Program (and your Grocery Dollars)

When we first joined a household - (we did it twice - tried it separately and did not like it - went back to a household ) it was like we were brand new customers and our history was erased for a few weeks and then it got better and then much better. Just hold on.... shop as usual - use your card - it will be back.

This week though I did have a few less offers - I normally get about 27-28 and this week it was 22.

Although I agree with PH on most everything else - I do LOVE the Household feature ( as does my husband ) - it is convenient for us that do not have time ( or inclination ) to plan and separate orders etc...
I see it as THE BEST FEATURE of the new PC Optimum program. Yes - LOVE it .

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

This question would be best posed / answered on the RFD thread dedicated to the PC Insiders Group, which are the folks who thru their exclusive Invite to Membership via their PC MCs, are the ONLY ones to get the annual surprise boxes from PCO

I'm going to buy an item that is $80. On what date should I buy? Don't know much about the new system.

If you spend $80 (on an eligible item) on Saturday you’ll get 24,000 points ($24 value). If you pay for it with a PC Financial MasterCard you’re supposed to get another 5,000 points back in 4-6 weeks.

If you spend $80 on Sunday, you’ll get 25,000 points. No MasterCard bonus for Sunday.

The only thing I’d add is that if you need any other items (milk, eggs and butter are always competitive at SDM), you’d get more points adding them to your order on Saturday, whereas on Sunday you’re capped at 25,000 points.

Is it so that with the 20X events at SDM (like the one on Saturday) if I get 135 points per dollar when using the PCMC until the end of year, that means I get 20X 135 points per dollar?

No, you’ll only get 20x on the 15 points/dollar base SDM points.
