What the OP has posted is correct...ish. This has been a problem for quite some time in SDM (I am an employee), and almost every year we had to call in to verify the process. Problem is, depending on who you get at the other end of the line, they will either inform you to use the $ off process or free product process. The SDM I work at has adopted the latter. This is because MANY people come in and are confused as to why they have to pay the tax, which is 100% fair unless there are people who pay the tax on the gifts they receive. So we use the free product option to avoid the numerous arguments that may ensue. I remember when you could get points on the SDM gift cards. I would double-dip in my points all the time around Christmas, but I believe they rectified that as well. So technically, YMMV. Also, most supervisors are young kids (I work as one, since I was 19), so they aren't really that knowledgeable, at least in the GTA.

Aargh, darn u RFD. Was there in a hurry before work. Totally pressured by cosmetician to process everything on her side. Took a chocolate bar and froze when she told me it's discounted to 35. Didn't get the points because I was late....

When I went in yesterday to try this, there were no skin care samplers like the one the OP posted in the picture. However, they did have the fragrance samplers mentioned by PointsHubby. I went for the upscale sampler, which costs $99 instead of $85 but gives you nice little bottles for the samples, and they have more in them. Then I was informed that, in this particular store, they had a limited-time promotion where if you spent $125 in the beauty section (cosmetics, fragrances, etc.) you would get an additional 20,000 points bonus, on top of whatever other points offer might be available to you. I jumped instead of waiting for 20X this Saturday because (a) when they ran out of those promotion coupons, that was it, and (b) I had a 15X coupon loaded on my Optimum card.

On Saturday, I will redeem the certificate and (hopefully) get 20X points on a $110 bottle of perfume.

The math:
Purchases: $125.14
Tax: $16.27
Points: 18750 plus 20,000 bonus = 38,750 points
Cert redeem on 20X points day: free item + 22,000 points (hopefully)
Total points: 60,750
Value at 95K level: $108.71

Not bad.

I don't see why not. I'm going to try it on Sunday, again with the fragrance sampler. I'm hoping to get another 20K point bonus for spending $125 on cosmetics etc., then redeem the coupon for 22K points.
So I'll have (hopefully) redeemed 95K and gotten back 20K + 22K + 30K = 72K points. So I spent 23K points on $170 of stuff. 23K points is $41.15, which is less than the $45 out of $170 that didn't have to be cosmetics to get the bonus.

For those thinking of going this route, I'll update tomorrow morning and let you know how it goes. Also, apparently not every store has the 20K point bonus; it's something that they order from corporate head office as a promotional thing. You're most likely to find it at stores with a full beauty boutique section (somewhat walled off from the rest of the store). Good luck.

"If you go on 20x and buy the kit ($49) and a small item to get over $50 then that's 10000 points. Then, take the coupon and get the full sized Lancome genific hd ($65) on a 20x day for an additional 13000 points at no extra cost! Not only did you save $16 on the item but you also got back just over $30 worth of points....."

I am a bit confused
you spend $49 + a filter =$50, you get 10000 pts
then you spend $65 and get 13000 pts

It's just normal 20x pts....?

You get a gift certificate in the sampler worth a full sized version of one item in the sampler. The lancome is the most expensive one at $65.

It's seems like this is only if you purchase the grooming set?

Whereas the title doesn't specify that. It seems like any purchase over 50$ will get the bonus points. A bit misleading imo.

Spend $50+tax & get $60 back in points if you spend them on Sunday or Monday or $41 back at highest redemption.
Plus the products.

Before you go and try to sound like a smart ass, maybe you should read the OP. You need to buy the kit.

So an update: this did NOT work with the fragrance sampler certificate. It looks as if Shoppers has closed this loophole for the fragrance samplers - there are very clear instructions on the certificate for how to redeem at the cash register, and it pops up a personalized refund line (FRAG SMPLR) that wipes out the charge for the bottle of perfume, but no 20X points, or credit towards minimum redemption levels or personalized coupons loaded.

Still, if you can find a store today with the 20K point bonus, plus the 20X points, the sampler plus filler will run you $125 + tax = $141-ish, and you'll get 45K points worth $80 at the highest redemption level, which is a nice return on a premium fragrance (which you got through the sampler at a lower price). Cheers!
