* Offers carried over from DELAY mode

ANALYSIS - A real assortment this week on both accounts. Several of what I’d call the PC Insiders Christmas List are starting to show up even though that annual promotion has not been officially announced / launched. yet, or fully listed on the website https://www.presidentschoice.ca/en_CA/i ... !/view-all

This year’s selection seems to include: the Cast Iron Braiser, the Textured Baking Sheets, the Ready Vegetables, and the Bang Bang Shrimp.

We both chose to DELAY 4 Offers from last week to this. One of them is the Kitchen Prep Offer, I did this in anticipation of the upcoming PC Insiders Christmas Report. Lol, sadly at least for this week it doesn’t align with the PC Braiser or Baking Sheets (wrong account), but I expect there will be more offers / Christmas Items to come in the weeks ahead.

Every other offer on the two accounts, we’ve seen before... some within the last 2 weeks. And the one for Coffee Filters, which we had last week & used... showed up again.

The most interesting offer this week though is the LOBLAWS BANNERED one on my account for PC Black Label Deli Cheese which runs the entire month of November. It’s unique cause it features a built in tally right on the “coupon” that calculates how far along one is in the $ 25 Challenge for the month of November... this is the very first time I have seen a PCO Offer structured this way where items don’t have to be bought all in one transaction, but accumulate over time.

LAST WEEK UPDATE - We strategic shopped last week, primarily buying items with PCO Points (both Personal & In-Store Offers). We spent just under $ 100, and earned 25,000 PCO Points... a very nice return just over the 25% Rate.

Great suggestion @Jucius Maximus, thanks.

I think I'll keep the format as is for now and, if we continue the lists in 2019, I'll throw up a poll and we'll decide if we want to use Google Spreadsheet or keep things status quo.

Out of curiosity, do you or anyone know of any examples of threads on RFD that is using Google Spreadsheet so I can get a feel of its capabilities and limitations?

I have had it happened twice now that I got two different offers for the exact same product in the same week:

200 for each $1 on PC Blue Seltzer Carbonated Water
400 for each $2 on PC Blue Seltzer Carbonated Water

When buying the product, it only applies one offer, but filing a missing points claim on the other one for the same purchase has always worked for me, so 40% in points back for the same offer. Sometimes Shoppers offer 2 cases (12 cans with 355ml each) for $4. Combining that with a 20x points offer, you can basically get 70% back in points combining everything!

Edit: I guess you can also use the PC Mastercard to get even more back :D

Here is a good example that is from Google Plus, not RFD. The purpose is to keep track of the quality of various USB accessories for mobile phones:

Just getting to this finally... I forgot to save offers last Wednesday so these are all new.
There`s definitely a lot of information here. When you take the time to go through, it`s pretty interesting what offers other people are getting. I`ve never been offered the Farmers Market cakes or cookies and I do occasionally buy those as treats. Also, I wish I got the Dove Men offer to buy hubby`s shampoo and body wash!

I have noticed though that when I was almost exclusively shopping at No Frills, my offers tended to be 10% in points. Lately, I`ve been trying to switch things up and thrown some RCSS and more SDM visits into the mix and more offers started showing up as 20% in points.

Week of Nov 1 to Nov 7

7500 pts WUS $40 or more on almost anything in-store

400 pts for every $2 spent on Tang, Country Time, Mio, Crystal Light, or Kool Aid Drink Mix
200 pts for every $1 spent on PC Organics Baby Food
200 pts for every $1 spent on Potatoes
400 pts for every $2 spent on PC Frozen Vegetables or Sides
200 pts for every $1 spent on PC or Real Canadian Spring Water
100 pts for every $1 spent on Fresh Beef

Can you please confirm this as 200 pts / $2 spend (the norm seems to be 400 pts / $2 spend)?

Thanks.

I can't absolutely confirm, but I'm pretty sure I've seen 200 pts for every $2 spent on Breads and Rolls Baked in-store in the past. Methinks it's the 100 points per $1 version for those who usually shop at No Frills.

I usually get the 400 every $2 spent ... Only bought bread a few times at RCSS

Also @trystee see screenshot below bread offer ... bought PC thyme Thanksgiving and showing up as new offer few weeks later :)

So do I. People who shop at No Frills are more likely to get the 200 for every $2 version, just like they're more likely to get the 100 for every $1 ones for meats, fruits, and veg where I and presumably you are used to getting offers on the same things that award 200 per $1

Strangely enough, I went to No Frills a couple of weeks ago ... AND

On Wednesday night, I saved 200 per $1 for pork AND chicken.

On Thursday, received new offers 100 per $1 for pork AND chicken!

Not buying any chicken or pork this week.

Hmm, if I save all 4 on Wednesday night, will I be able to stack the 2 pork and/or chicken offers the following week?!
