Couldn't I buy 5 of those giant Canadian Springs refillable water jugs for 75$ (5 plus 10 deposit), return the bottles elsewhere to get my 50 deposit back, and effectively get 25k points for spending ~25$ ?
Seems like a lot of work for free water...

First a switch and now a game or a controller next.. ha! Never thought I'd be buying so many games/console stuff from Shoppers of all places, however these bonus points + bonus redemption times have gotten it down lower than anywhere else. I suppose its a good way to workaround MSRP when most MFRs are regulating their pricing.

For example: Buy 80$ game/controller, get 25$ in points, but then with ~60$ worth of points you can get an 80$ game for 10$ after tax on a redemption event. ~30% off.

Oook, what if I bought 9 bottles for ~45$ after deposit refund, and got 75k points back as well?
I'd also use my targeted 200 points per dollar spent on Canadian Springs Water (200 x 45 = 9000 assuming deposit isn't eligible for targeted offer), use my PCF World Elite MC for another 135pts/dollar (135 x 15 x 9 = 18225 pts)

9000 + 18225 + 75000 = 102225 pts

Would that be worth the time and effort it takes into going for 2 car rides? If not, RFD probably isn't for you ;)

Jokes aside, anyone know if this scenario would work?

I wasn't able to redeem points to pay for the deposit. So it might not work.

Not sure how good of a deal it is, but just saw for the first time in shoppers the seventh generation Amazon 7" Fire tablet for $59.99+$1.00enviro fee.

Thoughts?

I have 20x on my app too, would love to know. Doubt it'll stack if i had to guess Confused Face
You get whichever gives you the most points but not both. It used to stack a long time ago but that was fixed a few years back (just after the chocolate deals i believe). Right now you can only stack points with GC promo (say app coupon with $20 GC/$75 weekends). Individual/targeted item coupons always stack too.

Why would you use this offer to get a PS4? The MAXIMUM points is 45k for spending $125.

7. Earning and Redemption Exclusions
PC Optimum points cannot be earned or redeemed for any of the following: (i) the purchase of tobacco, lottery tickets, or alcohol, (ii) deposits (e.g., a water bottle deposit, as it is not a purchase)

I don't know where you got your initial 75k from.

Although you should earn the 135 on credit card. So, to make it work I think you would need to buy 15 bottles which would cost $225, $75 net,$150 deposit and earn you 30375 (225*135), 15000 (200per $offer), and 25k (spend 75) for total 70375 pts. I don't know cost of water. I based off your statement and assumed 5$ for water and 10$ deposit.

That's a ton of water and a lot of effort.

Because if I buy it on my pc mastercard I get 112,500 points. 45,000+ 125 for every dollar.

If you wait until 20x you will get 150,000 points from 20x alone. It's a good bet that another 20x event will happen before Aug 10th. If it does, you will get 217 500 points. If a 20x event doesn't happen, you still get 150k points or 37.5k more. Unless you need one now, it makes more sense to wait until just before Aug 10th.

EDIT: or better yet, buy SDM gift cards to the tune of $550. Earn CC points. Buy Ps4 at 20x event at a later date.

Are you sure you earn points buying gift cards with a PC cc?
