[Shoppers Drug Mart] Senior discount limit rules

Shoppers Drug Mart claims to have a $50 discount limit for the 20% senior discount, but I just bought a tablet and got a $66 discount. Has anyone else experienced this? I plan to buy a laptop soon and it would be nice to get $100 off instead of $50.

Hard to think that it is unique to one store, or was it some sort of processing error?

I hope you figured out how to google stuff on your own. But just in case.

Please read post carefully before posting. My question is in regards to YMMV, and at the end of the sentence, "or max out on $50" indicates that i'm fully aware of the $50 maximum.

I feel that educating people on english reading on rfd is redundant and waste energy, but just in case.

Fair enough. I misread both posts, and that's my fault.

It's supposed to be limited to $50 but in my experience (and those I've read online) most of the time they don't actually cut it off at $50. I know people who have bought gaming consoles ($400+) and got the full 20% discount.

Can we still get points after the 20% off?

You get points off of the discounted price. For example, if the discounted price is $400, you will get 10 pts x 400 = 4000 points.

Thank you. If I have the 20X offer, will I get 80,000 points for the $400 purchase?

So if the reg price is $500 & you get 20% off, making the new price $400 + tax, yes, you will get 80,000 pts if you have a 20x offer on your account
