Does video games count as electronics when you have this kind of offer ? ( 500 points for each 5$)

I mean not console but like zelda on switch...

Got an offer "Spend $40 or more on eligible products at participating Esso or Mobil stations in Canada". Where would I find the definition of "eligible products", since nothing in the Details except:
Good For: Offer applicable to eligible products

Are you not in a situation to use it on gas? It surely wouldn’t count on gift cards or lottery tickets. It would probably count on snacks/drinks, but hard to justify spending that much in one purchase on that.

I think they use the generic phrase “eligible products” in this instance because Esso & Mobil are different PCO Partners with different earn rates etc

Too many competing concurrent offers on gas - Shell & Petro Canada, and in any case, I would probably need to buy instore after fill up in my small tank to get to $40.

WTF they offered me a discount on BIC Lighters. I'm not a smoker, and am almost offended by this offer. 🤨

SDC disallowed GC redemption and I don't shop at any of the PCO locations.

What are some highest return items/ways to redeem the PCO points?

Thanks.

I inadvertently saved a crappy item for next week instead of never show again
Has anyone ever tried to reverse something like this and if so, by what method and the results you got.

Seems like splitting hairs to try to reverse something like that. The offer may come back.

I've gotten offers for all sorts of stuff I could take offense with. I just ignore them. (Don't waste time with Never Show Again. They don't honour it.)

Can't reverse it. Just choose never show again on it when it re-appears this week.

I'd say yes. But just be aware that on this electronics points offer, you may have to call/chat to get the points added. I'm not sure why, but this electronics offer is often picky.
So let it be e-mailed...so let it be done!
