Shoppers Drug Mart/PC Financial
I just noticed this offer on SDM site. I believe its a very good offer if you have PC Financial Mastercard

SDM Email.jpg

The SDM website says it is only available on October 19. But I have got an email which says the same offer is valid on October 19th & October 26th.

You get almost 40% back in PC Points if you have *PC Financial Mastercard as per my calculation.

You buy $51 (before tax)*15(per $ for PCF MC)*20 = 15300+5000 = 20300 You get in PC Points - almost 40% back in PC Points.

Please let me know if it is already posted, I will delete the post. Don't down vote as I have just started posting threads :)

† Point multiplier applies only to the regular 15 points per dollar for eligible in-store spending. Points issued on the net pre-tax purchase total of eligible products (excludes purchase of tobacco, lottery tickets, alcohol, gift cards, all prepaid card, transit/event tickets, post office transactions, passport photos, cash back, delivery charges, all purchases made through non-participating 3rd party operations and any other products that may not legally be offered in connection with the Program, are provincially regulated (including pharmacy-related transactions) or as we determine from time to time.

Thank You @MaxPower19 & @nafteni for correcting my calculation

I agree and disagree. It's easy to find value when they have a sale day but to spend $50 for things you actually need is a bit harder to do. What a started doing is I tend to stack up on things like laundry products, toilet paper, eggs, frozen dinners, etc. That way the prices are more comparable to Costco.

Not I am confused.

The email I received, doesnt say Point multiplier applies only to the regular 15 points per dollar for eligible in-store spending

This is the fine print of terms mentioned in Email that I got:

1 All PC Optimum members earn 15 points per dollar of eligible purchases at Shoppers Drug Mart and Pharmaprix. When you use your President’s Choice Financial Mastercard® you will earn additional points per dollar: 10 points per dollar for President’s Choice Financial Mastercard® cardholders; 20 points per dollar for President’s Choice Financial World Mastercard® cardholders; and 30 points per dollar for President’s Choice Financial World Elite Mastercard® cardholders.
*Offer also available at Shoppers Home Health Care and Wellwise. Point multiplier applies only to the regular 15 points per dollar for eligible in store spending. Points issued on the net pre tax purchase total of eligible products [excludes purchase of tobacco, lottery tickets, alcohol, gift cards, all prepaid card, transit/event tickets, post office transactions, passport photos, purchases made at cash back, delivery charges, all purchases made through non participating 3rd party operations and any other products that may not legally be offered in connection with the Program, are provincially regulated (including pharmacy related transactions)] or as we determine from time to time. Offer applies to photofinishing services that are picked up and paid for on the day of the offer only. Cannot be used with any other points, promotions or offers. See PC Optimum terms & conditions at pcoptimum.ca for redemption restrictions.
**Offer valid in store only on October 19th and October 26th, 2019. Earn a bonus 5,000 PC Optimum points in addition to the regular PC Optimum points per dollar earned with the card, when you spend $50 or more using President’s Choice Financial Mastercard®. Limit one bonus offer per account during the promotional period. Minimum redemption is 10,000 PC Optimum points (worth $10 in rewards) and in increments of 10,000 PC Optimum points.


So if the above is right, I get back 50900 PC Points back on $51 spend (before tax). Any pointers !

No, the best time is when 20x points with F&F (additional 20% off)

So from what I understand, let's say $50 spend
(20x offer) + PC WE MC + 5000 pts
so...
(15 pts/$ x $50 ) x 20 + (30 pts/$ x $50) + 5000 pts = 21 500 pts

thanks for the response

How often does this combo of 20x plus F&F happen?

Hi vhparekh;

On non-bonus days, when you spend $1.00 on something (before tax) at Shoppers Drug Mart, you receive 15 points on it. Purchasing $50 worth of items (before tax) would then normally net you $50 x 15 points = 750 points.

With 20x points events, if you pass the minimum purchase threshold amount (i.e. buy a minimum $50 or $75 or $100 and you get 20x points) you would then get $50 x 15 = 750 points x 20 times the points = 15,000 points

For this particular event, if you have a PC Financial Mastercard, you will then receive an additional 5,000 points on top of whatever value points you get for your purchases (so if you buy $60 worth of stuff and you pay for it with a PC Financial Mastercard, you would pay $60 plus tax, but you would also receive $60 x 15 points = 900 points baseline x 20 times the points = 18,000 points PLUS the bonus 5,000 points for using the card.

The PC Financial credit cards also accrue points as well, but that will show up on your credit card statement as a separate amount and isn't eligible for the 20x bonus as those points are a function of the credit card rather then the store.

Hopefully this helps.

I see the 20x excludes gift cards, but it sounds gift cards are eligible for the 5k. Can anyone confirm?
