When was this? Last Year?
You gotta read to OP man, it will be credited into your acc by Nov 17, unless you bought shoppers GC, which they will give you 2000 pts, then credit 8k after
What I'm asking is, the cashier basically didn't scan my optimum card for my purchase which essentially means I wouldent get the bonus points. I have the receipt and all, just wondering how the call in process is for missed points.

Dumb me wasn't paying attention one would assume they would honor the points on the 17th if I call in.

Thoughts?

I bought 6 SDM $100 gift cards in one transaction using credit card. I got 6000 SDM points on my receipt. Then I bought in 3 transactions of 2 $100 Petro Can gift cards in each transaction for a total of $600 using the 6 $100 SDM gift cards I just bought. Do you think I will get 24000 bonus SDM points on Nov. 17 or just 8000 pts? If the The term & condition says 'Bonus points will not be issued for transactions in which a gift card or a financial card is used as tender to pay for additional gift or financial cards. ', I don't think I will get the bonus pts for buying the Petro can gift cards because I bought them using gift cards. I should have done like you did by buying the 6 $100 SDM cards in 3 transactions of 2 cards each transaction so I will get the 6000 base points on SDM cards and the 3 x 8000 bonus pts. I thought the bonus pts are only good for non SDM gift cards. That is why I bought the 6 SDM cards in one transaction & used the SDM cards to buy the Petro Can cards in 3 transactions.
I think you'll only get 8,000 points.
What I would do is call SDM customer service (after your 8,000 bonus points are awarded), explain that you misunderstood the terms of the promotion, but did actually buy $600 total in gift cards, and ask if they can help you out. Customer service people are usually empowered to make those decisions, and are often very happy to help the nice people who call in. Be very nice:-)

Ah, my apologies, uhm usually if you buy and scan your card, it will actually show how many points you actually have. In this case it probably didnt go thru

I have an info on two locations in Edmonton that has nintendo switch in stock. I can confirm because i was just there. Blue and red and the grey ones. Just PM me.

And for those asking about. Xbox one X. I talked to one of the employee and there is probably a chance they will carry it next week but knowing that there is limited supply right now he Saïd, it would be close to impossible.

It happened to me on my first transaction, i asked the manager amd she did award me the 8k points because the cashier failed to scan my card correct. She actually accidentally cancelled the transaction after scanning my.card so it is not my fault. If you lnow the cashier, you can comeback and.explain the situation on what happened, the manager can reward the points immediately, they have the power to do that. Just be nice. I am not sure by calling customer service of they can help as the transaction was not attached in your optimum card in the first place. But you can try that route first as you are not in the store now.

Wow, which SDM still accepts purchase of gift cards using SDM gift cards?
