The PC Plus program is only active in Ontario Loblaw stores right now.

That includes all of Loblaws owned stores, and not just Loblaws branded stores, right?
No, it means actual "Loblaws" store only
Zehrs, No Frills, or even RCSS Superstore don't even scan the PC Plus card yet... kinda useless app then

I tried to add my it onto my PC MC and got the following:

"A system error has occurred, Please try again or contact the system administrator."

I love my PC Points, but Loblaws needs to hire some better IT people. Their sites are always full of bugs...

What? Well this deal is a dud for me then. I was going to do it at T&T. Never spent more than $40 at any of the other stores...

I'm new to PC Plus. Just started this week.

How often does an offer of this caliber occur, eg. 10K's of points or ~25% of receipt value? Or is this the best seen of its kind so far - I'm wondering if if PC Plus points are usually tied to some particular product one may not be interested in rather than general purchases, which would be best, like this promotion.

Can someone else confirm what happens if you buy $160 worth? I think one poster said he got 40K points. Is that confirmed by anyone else?

On a related note, what happens if you buy $80-159.99 on one occasion, and $80-159.99 on a second occasion? Will you get 20K on both or just the first time? One poster speculated that the offer is redeemed after the first time. But, unless I missed something, no one has confirmed whether a second round will get the same reward. My usual habit is to grocery shop 2 or 3 times a week rather than make 1 large purchase. Anyone else with similar habits already tried? Or do we just hold our breaths until August 9?

The only detail about the offer at the website is "for every $80 purchase". That suggests both $160 and 2x$80 purchases will confer 40K points.

This is the best offer to date. Although, it hasn't been out long. I also have a coinciding offer of 5000 pts with $100 purchase.

The small print suggests that if your bill was $160 you would get 40000 pts. It also suggests that the offer is redeemed once you've made one qualifying purchase. Can't speak from direct experience though.

Yes I spent $160 and received 40000 pc points on Monday.

My $86 purchase on Friday did not register though so working with them on that now, keep your receipts just in case!

This will eventually be rolled out to all the banner stores sometime in the future.

Okay, I'll try Loblaws again before end of July 25.

It may be a good opportunity to compare products with other stores I frequent during the week (eg. Metro, Big Carrot) especially providing incentive to try out my choices of the black label PC products. Most have been good and though expensive, this would allow less restrained exploration. Besides, one would need to go above the threshold of $80 increments while my smaller, more frequent purchases usually don't. I'm sure that won't be as hard particularly with the gourmet and exotic items.

I can't seem to find this in the offer tab to load on the card. Is there something I'm doing wrong?

How much is 20,000 points worth? $2 or $20?
