Hoping someone can help explain (we collect but haven't redeemed in a long time). If we have 500K+ points, is it smarter to buy a Switch and get 20x points tomorrow or get $210 off on Saturday? Or even utilize the Senior's Day discount for 20% off? Thanks
20x points are always more "valuable" than redeeming ... but at some point, you have to redeem your points otherwise collecting them at 20x is pointless.

I like buying stuff like consoles and redeeming 95,000 points, and getting 20x points on the balance.

What do you guys think of the Beats Solo3 Wireless Headphones for 95K points plus 39.99? Cover page of the flyer.

I need help here in buying an x Box X.

I have 123k points and I also have a 20x personalized coupon for tomorrow. Can i buy gift cards for $400 and get optimum points on them tomorrow. Then I go in on Saturday and redeem 95k worth of points for $210 towards the xbox x and use my gift cards that I will be buying to pay for the rest. Does this work or am i getting something wrong here?

Thanks in advance!

So i took another look and its actually spend your points not spend points get points. No wonder there isnt a date/amount of points back. Guess i assumed it was spend points/get points for whatever reason without reading it carefully.

Makes it even harder for me since there is nothing i want to buy (based on flyers).

you dont get 20x on giftcard purchase, just the base points so in your case 400$ x 10 = 4000 points

Oh I thought you get 20x on SDM gift cards. I was wrong there I guess. Thanks!

I have opened and used the portable hard drive and alarm clock and ate the sausages. How can I return them?
Well...
Then just your points to redeem some other things that you need and you get extra sausages with the bonus redeemption, lol

Not sure if mentioned here but those who haven't bought electronics before SDM has a strict "no return of open boxed electronics"
Electronics
Returns will only be given if original product is returned in the original sealed box in saleable condition with a receipt and within the 30 day return period from original date of purchase
In some instances you may be required to deal directly with the manufacturer.

Hmm, didn't consider that. So you'd suggest buying it tomorrow using my $170 for 95,000 pts and then getting 20x on the remaining $230?

If the amount of points you get back is > $40, then go with 20x + $170.

Also, for folks interested - I swung by the SDM at fairview mall and they had the switch on display.
