Nopes, that time they have you 30k points extra...after x weeks. This is cashish :)
They had that promo last time yes, But it's been less than 2 years since they've had this same one. This happens once or twice per year, and they've added the points back weekend too. (I work at an SDM, so I have to deal with all of these promo weekends)

Nope. And you won't be able to use PC gift cards at SDM. The points system is merging (well essentially PC Plus is shutting down and Optimum is being accepted instead) but gift cards are still limited to the individual company.

Got my hands on the switch. $240 after redemption. Cashier says switches were flying off the shelf.

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?
I saw a guy buy three ps4 at shoppers Friday night....I’m guessing with a 20xcoupon and points he was earning he was going to use today

Sorry i'm sure this has been asked before but...

can we redeem more than 1 instance of SDM points in a transaction?
No. But after the merge the redemption limit increases to $500.

Are the pints you earned back based on spending $400 or $240?

Do you collect points on the purchase of the gift card AND buying the lottery tickets? would you mind explaining for a complete noob?
This may have been answered in the last 5 pages, but no. I only get them on the gift card. But as I'd not get any for the lottery purchase anyway that's okay. If you use the gift cards on normal purchases that get points then with those you are double dipping.

Points are earned back on the $240. You don't get back point on value that you redeem in points.

Obviously I haven't been paying enough attention to the conversion. After my December point spend I'm left with 84,500 which sdm app says is worth 125$. According to the calculator, the conversion after Feb brings this up to 140$. Why the rush for most to spend before?

That explains that. I just redeemed 38k on a $80 sony headphones. immediately returned it. then purchased a switch using the the gift card i just got back from returning the headphones + redeeming 95k in points. paid 167. Added bonus was i used a 15x the points coupon.

You should be aware that some people get flagged by the Optimum program for this. Not sure if they are banned entirely or just get a warning.

You are basically scamming them to get bonus points on the redeemed 38K points ($75) you shouldn't have gotten points on in the first place.
