This week...

A total of 18 Offers.

16 are JUST FOR YOU

Lots of regular stuff... Most exciting offers are:

* 2,000 Points for every $ 10 Spent on Hot or Chilled Meals to Go
* 200 Points for every $ 1 Spent on Books or Magazines

The 2 WE'D THINK YOU'D LIKE Offers are:

* 3,000 Points for every $ 15 Spent on PC Black Label Collection (expires September 14th)
* 3,500 Points for every $ 35 spent in the Natural Food Department (expires September 14th)

Did not get any other individual Black Label Offers this week... So the best I can do there is picking up some Black Label Fresh Pasta, so as to double-dip by combining it with the Meals to Go Offer

I always get fresh pork and fresh beef offers on the same week, and it is always 100 pts for every $1. I sometimes push out the beef or pork to the following week. Doesn't affect the fact they'll both reappear every other week regardless if I push it out.

I never get more than 10% in pts. Guess it depends if you shop at Loblaws instead of No Frills. I make up real savings PMing anyways. Even though I get only 10% pts, I somehow make due. Week before last I had $98 in groceries, 6800 pts rewarded on the digital offers and plus 3x pts on the $98. So over 10% savings on the total bill. But that is rare, and in that particular week, I had double dipping points (X pts for every $1 spent on Y & Z pts for Y)

If it is indeed tied to the banner, you don't have to spend much to make a difference.
My spending is usually 70% no frills, 20% RCSS, 10% Loblaws.
And nothing regular price at Loblaws, only the specials.
I frequently get the 20% offers.

And all the better if you can double dip.

I got both Tomatoes & Onions on my JUST FOR YOU OFFERS this week... So might be a good weekend to make some Homemade Spaghetti Sauce.

26 new offers for me today. I'll be using the apples, peppers, frozen fish, tortillas, Prego, n/n cheese bar, Suraj (rice and spices), Deli World bread, and salad dressing offers for sure. And possibly more after I look at the flyer. I'm a definite plan the menu after I see the flyers kind of gal.

I wish they would cease and desist with the M&M's offer. I swear I've seen it every week for months. And the lightbulbs. I just bought some LEDs that are supposed to last what, 25 years? Won't be back for more anytime soon.

1,000pts - For every $5 spent on Seaquest Frozen Fillets
600pts - PC Blue Menu Packaged Vegetables, Beans, or Legumes
600pts - Healthy Choice Gourmet Steamers
600pts - For every $3 spent on no name Potato Chips

I bought some organic bread called Dave's Killer Bread. It looks like a new product. I was surprised to get 5500 points for it.

I don't have it in my offers and there wasn't any sign on the shelves. Where else do they advertise bonus points offers?

Edit: bread name

Others who bought this as the result of previous bonus offers have commented that they weren't impressed.

Flyers. In-store. Possibly someone forgot to insert the on-shelf card, or it fell off, etc.

I'm guessing he's so successful due to the fact that none of the supermarkets would *dare* not pay his wholesaler bills. Face With Tears Of Joy

Another Friday... This week a total of 22 Offers.

20 are JUST FOR YOU

Lots of regular stuff... Most exciting offers are:

* 1,250 Points for every $ 8 spent on ACE Bakery In-Store Breads
(includes: Baguette - Ciabatta - Focaccia - Bread - Crisps - Buns - Ovals)

* 3,000 Points for every $ 15 spent on PC Whole Bean Coffee (450 or 907 grams)

* 1,500 Points for every $ 10 spent on Bounty, Charmin of Puffs

* 200 Points for every $ 1 spent on Bulk Foods

* 500 Points for PC Organic Appletreet Applesauce
* 600 Points for every $ 3 spent on PC Appletreet Applesauce

Chances are good we'll use the ACE Bread Offer & the one for Bulk Foods, along with the one's for Applesauce (have found in the past if you buy the organic one @ the same price as regular, that the 2 offers stack).

Won't use the Paer Products one... UNLESS there is a sale. Then it can be a good time to stock up & earn points too.

The 2 WE'D THINK YOU'D LIKE Offers are:

* 2,000 Points fr every $ 10 spent on Suraj Branded Products

* 1,200 Points for every $ 4 spent on NEW Becel with Avocado Oil

In both cases will have "a look see"... With Fall here we tend to do a lot more cooking & baking, so these might be good things to buy. A lot will depend on what's already in the Pantry / Freezer... And of course what the prices are.

Interesting observation... No PROTEIN Offers this week (meats, fish or cheeses) of any sort... fresh or frozen. Don't recall this happening ever before perhaps it means like @lecale posted above I'll get a triple play screen (lol, reminds me of a slot machine) in the weeks to come
