I bought a 5L container of Palmolive Dish Soap for $10 at No Frills and got 3900 in points on it thanks to the 2100 points bonus offer and a Palmolive offer I get often.

Ah yes, No Frills... warehouse sizes & warehouse pricing.

I went in hoping to find one of those bigger jugs of Palmolive at my Loblaws... alas not so.

Still feel I did OK considering what I bought was on sale. Mind you vs your score, not so much.

Not great for me... I somehow went brain dead and purchase $ 33 worth of dog food vs $ 35 and did not receive the 7000.

Then I did not need produce - bought some raspberries...
Did the cleaning promo... but really did not need any more cleaners and I am wracked with shoppers remorse.

Bought some pricey deli cheese...
Thinking of returning that $ 25 bag of dog food as it was something new and I am not sure he will like it. I bought it mainly for the promo. :rolleyes:

Ugh... so $ 102 total and 7000 points.

I didn't either.

Yesterday when I was shopping, someone else's receipt got mixed in with my groceries. I couldn't help but notice some people get some sweet offerings. They had spent $39 and earned 6800+ points. I even saw they had one offer that was "for every 1 dollar spent on x, 1000 pts". They also earned 1000 pts for 2.88 spent on squash. A lot of 25-30% return on items. I never get more then 10%. I earned 2200 pts on $96 spent.

You could do a points inquiry for the dog food and see what happens. Failing that, I'd return it.
In fact, I am returning 2 bags of dog food to RCSS myself. I picked them up for my Mom, then I found them at a better price (due to a $10 coupon on the bag) at Safeway, which helped me get to $100 and qualify for Shop the Block. Sorry RCSS.

Just got one for 5000 points for each $25 spent on toys, good for 8 days. I'll trade you for the Joe Fresh offer. Lol.

No frills is only participating the old pc points loyalty program, so there's just no bonus point offers at no frills. Just what you would earn with a pc mc or pc debit. My guess is that's how you were able to redeem. Mind you, I'm not an expert on this, just a spectator

You are wrong on that. They have been participating for about 2 years in the PC Plus program.

So I go to my points app, and see that I had less points than yesterday and I find they've deducted around 3,000 points - which mysteriously matches up to 1% of the total of the BF PS4 + controller purchase I put through on the PC Points Mastercard. I look up the transaction, and sure enough, the points were deducted on Friday, which is really a double-points loss since I never got them in the first place.

Anyone have this happen?

Just do a points inquiry, they'll get back to you right away and add the points if they made a mistake...heck they have the discretion to give you goodwill points even if they've done nothing wrong.

I was going to try this, but I'd need to ask for DOUBLE points as I never even got the points they deducted.
