This just in...
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 ;)
Good offer, ONLY IF

One has a PC Financial MC and actually wants stuff from these Stores.

By my definition this “valued PC Customer” needs neither (CC or these GCs)

Just reading the terms on this GC deal:

Get a bonus 90 PC points per dollar of your $25 or $50 Moxie's, La Vie en Rose, Pizza Pizza, Petsmart and Kobo gift card purchase in addition to the regular 10 PC points per dollar earned for all purchases on the PC Financial Mastercard.

I thought we get 30pts per dollar for buying anything at a Loblaws store, so I thought it was 30x10 = 300pts. But I guess "regular" PC points is 10pts. So 10x10 = 100pts which makes it just 10% off these GC's.

I get 30 pts on my PC World Elite card, so it might depend on which card you carry.

I have a world elite card as well. But the terms clearly say 100pts per dollar.

This PC Plus is just uncanny. A year ago I bought Campbell's Chunky Soup for the office Christmas food drive. I never buy that product for myself.
Again this week the food drive started, and like clockwork, the Campbell's Chunky Soup offer appears.

I don't recall getting the offer a single time in 2017 up to now. Creepy.

Is it personalized offer, or the flyer offer? (4000pts/$10?)
Could just be coincidence if it's not a personalized one.
Otherwise, double dip and buy more for the food bank :)

We got it as a PERSONAL BONUS OFFER

** 4,000 Points for every $ 10 Spent on Campbell’s Chunky Soup OR Pepperidge Farm Goldfish Crackers **

Are you saying there is something else going on as well in the Flyer ?

We gotten other Campbell’s Chunky Soup Offers thru the year... but then we’ve been known to keep a few cans in the pantry
(Their Chicken Noodle is awesome for anyone feeling under the weather)

Are SDM points being transferred over at a favorable rate? I'm a big fan of SDM points, but this new change has me concerned. My gut is telling me blow all my SDM points while I still can.

Food drive will be partially funded by PC Points... which is not a bad thing. Winking Face

What flyer where & when... more info needed

No PC Plus Bonus Points on either of these 2 Products in the Loblaws Eastern Ontario Flyer (Dec 7th thru 13th)
BUT... there is a Multi Offer of BUY 2 for $ 5

I have seen Campbell’s Chunky Soups Cheaper @ $ 1.99 this past year... but combining with PC Plus Bonus Points dies make this a very attractive offer

You are about a month behind the official Announcement

Check out this separate thread which has lots of good info
(NOTE it evolved from a heads up rumour to today... so the best bits are in the last half)

PS... I think most SDM Optimum Members believe the transition / conversion rates are fair (even for the casual user). The more SDM Points you have on February 1st the better the outcome

ON (GTA?) no frills, superstore, and Loblaws flyers effective Dec 7 all have blocks describing the 4000/$10 on chunky soup and goldfish.

Yes. It's in the flyer but you still have to load it from the app. From tomorrow's ValuMart flyer:

Thanks for that.

Ahhh ha, I get it... it’s basically an Ad by PC Plus in the Flyer to advertise the PC Plus App

WANT THIS OFFER NOW ?
GET THE APP


So not another offer (something stackable)
