I bought mine when they were 199 and I really like them, the battery is bar none the best, the only downside I have with them is they shut down if they sense it is 0 degrees or lower so winter walks are mostly a no go for them.
WTF?

These shouldn't even be sold in Canada if so. Is this the case with most bluetooth headphones?

How have I not heard of this.

The cheap Aukey I have and the no-name brand I got at Jean-Coutu for 20$ work well down to to -20... battery seems to go a little faster but they'll still last at least 2 hours...

Sorry Im a beginner to the Optimum Points fiesta and wanted to make sure I'm calculating this right LOL!

So for someone with no current points (me sadly) would it still be ideal for me to try to stack a 20x coupon on Seniors day? I want to buy a Switch so I would pay $320 (assuming I get $80 back) and 20x points on the $320, so 64,000 points (i.e. $114.53). So my savings and cash in points would total to $80 + $114.53 = $194.53 right?

Also what are the odds of a 20x coupon landing on. Seniors day? I just signed up for the promotions so I'm crossing my fingers!

Thanks and happy shopping.

you get 20X quite often. normally right after a redemption event, i mean within 2 - 4 weeks, which is quite logical. you have redeemed some points, now you need earn some, nice way to enticing you keep spending. the better deal is $75 for 18,500 pts.

I will have to say that it is quite rare to actually get a 20x coupon on a Seniors day. I've only been able to get a 15x coupon on a F&F day and even that has only happened once.

I have a 20x coupon that expires today... but the app won't let me load it on my card.

Can we not use the coupons on the last day of validity?

Thanks for everyone's mathematical evaluations. It sounds like it's almost always better value to earn pts than redeem pts, but at some point, pts need to be spent I guess. Maybe Seniors Day is the best option to get $80 off (or $50, I didn't know there was a limit) and then redeem 95k for another $170; least actual money spent. No shopping tomorrow I guess...Thx

Your calculations are close but
64,000 points are worth $102.50 Optimim or $108.80 PC points

Once you go above 95,000 ponts, the exchange rates are slightly better

There is always time to redeem after the merge. I do think it's fair to treat points as a cash equivalent if you shop at Loblaws. Within reason I think it's best for most to try and earn as many points as possible. Right now once you hit 95k you earn .00179 per point. This drops to .001 after. By earning points you are gaining almost a 40% premium compared to the new system. Aside from the very specific example of redeeming right now for a switch or Xbox for anyone with significant points should be maxing points when possible.
