I saw the "GC redemptions suspended" signs all over my local ValuMart yesterday so it's apparently YMMV.
I still see it in Québec stores.

There's a $2 tearpad coupon for any Pure Leaf product (explicitly includes ice tea on back).
The only PURE Leaf $2 tearpad I saw today explicitly EXCLUDED iced tea right on the front.

I got the Hellmans offer, I always buy mayo at Costco, never buy Sidekicks. Also got 2000 points for $10 spend on Bulk Foods. I never buy from the bulk bins.

Lecale, do you regularly buy from the bakery? I do almost daily and have never gotten a bakery offer. I also buy salad kits, veggies and dip at least 3 times a week. No salad/vegetable offer for me.

It's like some offers are made to change your shopping habits.

I buy bakery but maybe an item a two a week because I bake the sweet stuff at home and Zehrs (closest) isn't my fave for in-store bread. I haven't bought prepared produce since...at least a year before I signed up to PC, so they have no record of me buying that. Every single time I buy one Suraj thing, I get the 2k on $10 offer (last time was masala chai tea, which is not bad - $3.99). I do buy Hellmann's mayo, and I have bought Sidekicks recently because I do the odd run for the neighbours.

My rule for getting better offers: delete! Delete any one where you are not willing to buy at least $10 of it. Delete any offer for things you only buy every so often. If your offers are a match to your shopping but not good, it's time to get picky. I delete an average 7 offers a week, and save 3. Always look at the next week's flyers first though because the odd time something seemingly useless really works. I check Click n Collect too because sometimes something is on clearance.

Thanks for the suggestion. Tried deleting a bunch of offers this week. I'll see what I get tonight!

Hey thanks I never knew that unwanted offers could be deleted. It looks like they can be deleted using the smartphone app (which I rarely use), but probably not yet possible on a computer.

If I buy an item using my PC points and I want to return it. Will it come back into my points card or will it be back as a gift card?

Why does PC Plus think I am a woman? Last week it was women's hair colouring and Lady Speed Stick in my inbox. This week it's Olay or Camay body wash. It makes no sense!

Do you ever get offers for guy stuff?

Maybe they think you're non-binary ;)

I just spoke with a store manager about PC+ redemptions for gift cards. He says the stores have conference calls every week. Every week they raise the issue of the suspension of redemptions for GCs. Every week PC stalls and says they're working on it. His opinion is that the suspension will be permanent. That would piss me off royally.

I don't know what we can do to change PC's opinion. Launch an e-mail campaign? See if we can get some traction in the media (perhaps by turning this into the next Air Miles)?

Buddy requested some KD and for weeks I got kids offers - deal on toys and chicken nuggets and lunch snacks. You must have bought something girly and not realized it. Tampons? jk, but you obviously set of their gaydar. Just delete, delete, delete. Get well soon.
