I have no idea, but if you can find out I can cut you a deal if you want to meet me when I get the TV

i can't remember what coupon i had but it was couple years ago..2000 points for energy drink, it was 2$ a drink and i tried to buy like 100 and they limited me! those are the offers i'd want lol
There certainly are WE THINK YOU'D LIKE offers from time to time that make particular items FREE - Dang near Free - OR less than Free.

EDIT - To date these offers have been primarily on products that are NEW to the Loblaws Group of stores

I am thinking about the Wonder Bagels Offer or the Dave's Killer Bread from this Summer

Personally, we got the bagels for like 50 cents at Loblaws (if you do the points math), but know who others who got them essentially for FREE or WERE PAID to buy them cause the points were the same or more than the price at YIG - RCSS - No Frills

PS - The limitation... It more than likely happened cause of the "magic number" 100. The system takes things up to 99 (be it quantity or say cash refunds) but you hit 100x or $ 100 and then you need a Manager to approve / over-ride / key in. So you probably could have got your 100 or more, if you had known the issue. Very few Customers (or even Cashiers) seem to.
also on joefresh.com , can u use your PC points to pay online? if yes then this might be good if u shop there....theres ebates now at 11% cb and a promo where u spend 80$ and get back 20k pts....not bad? i don't shop here tho
Know that one can EARN PC Points on line with Joe Fresh not sure if one can cash in.

But another great deal is those with a CAA Membership also get $ 10 OFF on orders over $ 50 (may even earn CAA Rewards Bucks too)

Say you have 200 pts per $1 on cheese and you buy $100 worth of cheese. You'd expect to get 20,000 pts but you will get 19,800 because the system maxes out at 99X the offer. To get the last 200 pts you have to go through customer service.

Yup... And that is inputting.

If you try to do any sort of refund (points or not) things tend to freeze up at $ 100

Last year we bought quite a few items around Christmas on one shopping trip (Joe Fresh Sale).. And after getting them home & looking at them more closely / trying some on, made the decision to return a few as they weren't up to par as a present... Those items came to just over $ 100. When we were going thru the refund process, the CSR Cash froze the clerk out at $ 100, she had to call a Mgr to "key in" so as to continue the refund.

The magic number on the cash is 100.

Be it 100x an item, 100x the points, or $ 100 refund.

I am trying to understand how "targeted" these offers are :

Did any else receive an email/ bonus offers on INSIDERS products yesterday :
LIke the dry rubbed smoked PC wings or an antipasto package ?

I don't remember getting these Bonus offers before...
I know this is the time of year where they really promote their new Insiders products.

Typically they are pretty good - I am signed up for an Insiders cooking class so I did not know if that was the reason - of if it was a general mail out.

I thought they were just regular bonus offers they randomly send out once in awhile, usually once a week, that aren't related to your purchases. I also got bonus offers for PC wine glasses and PC dutch ovens, which I never buy. lol

ahhh Thank you Silverele ! It would have been odd that it was related to the cooking classes....

Yes the Insiders products are usually new products that Loblaws puts out before Christmas- they promote them in the store in the store with samples and will sometimes run a cooking class around them so people know how to make the most of them.

They are usually premium type products... maybe not as much as the Black Label... but fairly premium....
