It just mine... all mine
And clearly all the time Smiling Face With Sunglasses

Maybe I should buy one
Paint a face on it ala Tom Hanks “Wilson”
Perch him up alongside my computer
And talk to him (someone to more precisely talk back at)
When I post here on RFD

Another Friday...

Got 20 Offers this week, all JUST FOR YOU

Highlights:
* 7500 Points for every $ 75 Spent
* 200 Points for every $ 2 Spent on Baked In-Store Bread & Rolls
* 200 Points for every $ 1 Spent on Deli Meats
* 2,000 Points for every $ 10 Spent on Meals to Go
* 800 Points for every $ 4 Spent on Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream **
* 200 Points for every $ 1 Spent on PC Chocolate **
And of course...
* 200 Points for THE NEVER-ENDING Pineapple Smiling Face With Sunglasses

** First time ever for Ben & Jerry’s and the PC Chocolate

Looks like there might be Deli Meat Sandwiches with a side of Potato Salad in my future

Perhaps I could turn that PC Chocolate into Fondue, and finally have at that Pineapple
Fondue & Ice Cream... might just be the ticket for this ubiquitous tropical fruit

Nice offers. Love this program. I got a lot for meat this week, which I will likely save....as well as an Electronics discount...hoping they have some good TV sales again soon!

Hmmmmm......

Sometimes I wonder that too... we strategy shop, so we are not doing a weekly big shop every week at a Loblaws Group. i’ve noticed if i have been away awhile then often there is a PC Plus Spend $ X Get Y Points Offer to pull me back in... like the one I got this week. And of course there are the AM Shop The Block & Little Book of Offers (Ontario) both happening now... that would draw some of us to their competitors (Metro - Sobey’s - Foodland - Urban Fresh). Loblaws Group of course would know this... so if they are smart they do sweeten the pot with Personal Offers either at the same time, or shortly thereafter. Only makes sense

I've done the STB offers and my pcplus offers are pretty weak this week.

But if you use PCMC, they do know you're shopping at sobeys co. ;)

Did you pay with a PC MC?

I normally(*) pay for all groceries, pharmacy, etc. regardless of store by using a PC MC. I want Weston to know so that they don't get too complacent and hopefully make me even better offers I can't refuse ;)

(*) Currently I'm making an exception and charging everything I can to a TD Cash Back Infinite card in order to collect 6% cash rebate. But when that ends in January, I'll revert back to my usual habit.

Actually - no I made a point NOT to.
That is weird isn't it... like I was sneaking around....lol

I find I purchase these Sobey's GC's for the 100 Bonus Miles- basically collect them - and then look and realize that I should use them.
The location is a bit further for us- and we don't know the know the store as well.
I had a high happiness factor at that Sobey's.

Sometimes I wonder now that we are close to empty nesters - can I support two points programs ? Should I be both a Prime member and a Costco member ? Where are my loyalties ? Should I have loyalties ?
( OK... digging a very deep hole here ... )

What you say has me thinking of the spending habits on the PCMC. Lately I have decided to take advantage of the 3 % and purchase gift cards for gas ( Irving) and Amazon( significant ).
I have also purchased cards for my husband for errands at Can Tire, McD's etc...
So they would probably know that a significant amount of my spending at Superstore is NOT for Superstore.

We probably all have this EMAIL for tomorrow Dec 6th ONLY :

15,000 pts when you buy a $44 PC® or Butterball® frozen turkey (9 kg and over)
12,000 pts when you buy a $35 PC® or Butterball® frozen turkey (7-9 kg)
8000 pts when you buy a $26 PC® or Butterball® frozen turkey (5-7 kg)
6000 pts when you buy an $18 PC® or Butterball® frozen turkey (3-5 kg)

This is about 30 % off regular price.

That is great but they also have frozen Grade A turkey on sale this week for 1.29 $ per lb.
This is a better deal per pound but is not the premium butter infused type of turkey so it depends on your taste and what your Christmas traditions are,

My husband is hoping that this includes the cook from frozen - stuffed turkey. I am pretty sure it does not and secretly I am hoping it does not as I like to make the stuffing...

We will see...

I can't imagine Butterball stuffing being anywhere near as good as homemade, especially considering you like making it. Don't let him decide.

Don’t miss this ONE-DAY holiday offer! On Wednesday, December 6, you can get 6,000 to 15,000 pts* when you buy a PC® or Butterball® frozen turkey in store. That’s at least 30% back in points to help you stock up on all your other holiday staples.

Hurry to your local Loblaws, Zehrs, Independent (excluding West), Valu-mart, Provigo, Real Atlantic Superstore and Dominion[NL] store to take advantage of this deal—it’s cheer today and gone tomorrow!

Hi Bylo,

Shopping this time of year can be stressful, so why not give yourself a little reward?

Since you’re a valued President’s Choice Financial® Mastercard® cardholder, we’ve got an offer that will take the stress away. Use your card to buy select Moxie’s, La Vie en Rose, Pizza Pizza, PetSmart and Kobo gift cards at participating grocery stores where President’s Choice® products are sold, and get 10X the regular PC® points on every dollar spent.

This offer ends December 12.
It's not clear how targeted this is, i.e. if only some of us are "valued" PC MC cardholders or if we all PC MC cardholders are ;)
