A few weeks ago I had the 3000 pts for spending $30 offer. I spent over $30 and I wanted to redeem $20 of points, so I checked that was possible and they said yes because they saw the 3000 pts on the screen. When leaving, I checked my receipt and they had disappeared, because I redeemed points.
That's odd. I have redeemed points before, and still earned PC points. But I guess that was for specific products, not dollar value spending.

FYI check your points, especially when they group together transactions to reward the 1%/2% points.

I was missing 1090 points cause they only rewarded me 1% instead of 3% for spending 2 transactions worth over $50 at Superstore.

Yes, I have the same situation only with purchases at Valu-Mart. Interestingly my second-last purchase at V-M shows nnn pts then 2*nnn pts both on the same date using a "WORLD ELITE MC" that I hadn't yet received. I'd actually paid with the regular World non-Elite MC that I'd applied to be upgraded. The last purchase at V-M shows only the basic nnn pt even though this purchase was paid for using my new World Elite MC that had arrived the day before.

Same issue. Had to do a points inquiry. To their credit though they awarded the points within a few hours. Really hope I don't have to watch this closely though.
General Radek had some good ideas.

Just wondering if you can still redeem your points for gift cards?

I did it last week at No Frills. The GC for the stores themselves I think cannot be bought.

I don't understand why transactions show up at $0.00 in total spent. How does that work?

Campbell soup represent very poor food value at any price above about 10 cents a can - 95% marketing hype.

Can you keep your PC Plus points card as a separate account from your PC Financial MC? For example, if you were to add a secondary user on your CC, could you have two separate PC Plus points cards and have the in store/digital points added to PC Plus only and not the MC?

Could you still have a third account of PC Plus digital offers on your MC that you could load and pay for with the MC (by tapping twice)? I'd like to be able to log in to check the bonus points on the MC.

I assume you mean the Chunky Soup campbells at Loblaws since that is were I found them, the Ready To Serve 540 ml ones were $2. Thanks for the heads up.

If anyone else got the Nestles Favourites offer, spend $10 get 3,000 points, buying 2 of the 90 count box at $14.99 gets you 9,000 points even though you're 2 cents short.

Pretty good offer.
