PC Optimum Points Bonus Redemption

Retailer:
Real Canadian Superstore
Was at RCSS on Jul 20 Friday night trying to redeem 110,000 PC points for $111 of groceries. However the cashier told me I only need to redeem 96,000 points instead(see pic). So my points were worth $15 more than usual.

At the same time SDM is having a Super spend your points event this weekend as well.

60,000 pts = 75$
130,000 pts = 175$
250,000 pts = 350$

I suspect RCSS is having the same promotion but for whatever reason choose not to advertise. I know a lot of RFDers try to get electronics from SDM but groceries may be better to redeem to some people.

Damn, would have bought a TV yesterday on no Tax day here in the GTA if I'd known.

OP, you did a redemption but did you get the promo rate? So, your 94k should have been more than $94, was it?

Edit: Yes, it was $111. Hmm ...

This is very, very strange!

It makes sense: If you are redeeming anywhere between 60,000 points or 129,999 points you will get an additional 15,000 points off as a bonus. 96,000 plus 15,000 = 111,000, which is what is shown on the receipt!

If it's 250k for $350, you "wasted" $100 (since you could've redeemed again for another $350 worth of products). Obviously if you had nothing to buy with the remaining 250k then it's worth it for you.

Yes, I wasn't disagreeing, I was asking where it was on the receipt. Then I edited my post and said that I found it.

The math checks out, they got a bonus redemption.

Anyone know a Superstore in Calgary with an electronics section? All the ones I can think of got rid of them ages ago

Also, I'm assuming you can't redeem at the Mobile Shop, right?
