I've had 3k per $30 a few times too.
That's a nice offer, I only got 8000pts on $125 spend for only one time so far...

I believe the WE card was always minimum $80K income, or household $150K.
It was $70K when I applied for it a little over a year ago.

It should be easy to spot the person with the $100 Joe Fresh wardrobe who cashed in on this promotion. ;)

Looks like the ban on redeeming points for gift cards has become permanent. Got this notice when updating the PC Plus app:

Important Notice: Effective May 11, 2017, due to recent fraudulent activities relating to gift cards and in accordance with Section 10 of the PC Plus® program Terms and Conditions, the Terms and Conditions of the program changed so that PC® points may no longer be redeemed towards the purchase of gift cards, prepaid card products and wireless or long distance phone cards. A summary of the change can be found at www.pcplus.ca/loyaltyTerms.jsp

Damn!!!

It's interesting that they haven't posted this on the home page of their website or in an announcement in the app itself. So how do they expect most people to see this?

I think that policy was in effect for the last couple of months. It's very disappointing that Loblaws can't figure out a solution without resorting to a ban to redeeming toward giftcards.

ADD - another great offer I've only had once was 3,500 points for every $ 35 spent on Natural Foods... This covered all Fruits & Vegs, Fish & Seafood, Meats, Cheese & Dairy, as well as PC Organics / Blu Menu / Green Products in all other Depts (Grocery - Frozen - Household - Pets - and Health)
I get that offer about once every 6 weeks, but thought it only applied to the "Natural Values" aisle. Never read the details to find out it applied to seafood, meat etc.. Thanks for pointing that out.

Simply purchase any number of single $25 or $50 iTunes, Roots®, Bass Pro Shops®, The Keg® Steakhouse + Bar, Ultimate Dining Card, or Sears gift cards..."

I got the same email too, but it doesn't specify World Elite. I have the "World" card.

I also don't know what "10X regular points" means. Does that mean 10% back in points for all cards, or does that mean 30%, 20%, or 10% depending on which card you're using (World Elite, World, or Regular)? This is super hot if it's the latter.

I believe it means 10x how ever many points your card normally gets for the purchase. =) The fine print on the email I got for the World Elite offer says: Get a bonus 90 PC points per dollar of your $25 or $50 gift card purchase.

I didn't think to read the fine print. My email has the same fine print.

If it's 90 bonus points then it would be just 10%. Assuming 10 points is the base points, 90 bonus points is the difference.
