No as the promotion for controllers was Thursday only if I'm not mistaken.

Nope, Clearly it's a system issue. If staff are doing it the way they're supposed to everything should work. Contact PC Optimum, or inquire about points through the app and you'll get your points.

If you look at the receipt that another user posted, you'll see that the discount came off the GC, not the controller. They should have got 1155 pts (Subtotalx15) but they only got 780 (Subtotal X 10) which unless Albera still only gets 10pts per dollar I dunno why it's doing that.

gabrielchabot's math still isn't correct, there still isn't a discount on the product (controller). If the cashier is following the instructions given to them properly, they've done everything right and points not being awarded is due to a SYSTEM error (which believe it or not does happen a lot with SDM)

But everyone can feel free to blame the employees. Be sure to be rude to them and demand your 25k points. Because as everyone knows, cashiers can give and take points as they please. /s


seriously, if you haven't got your points from a valid purchase, contact PC Optimum and they will deal with it.

Just note, i actually took a $25 GC with me to make sure it was scanned first lol.
So that means we will have to make sure they scan the gift card first before they key in the promo code.

I did it based on pics posted, namely a few didn't get points when their receipt showed DS4, GC, GC discount. So i figure i had nothing to lose getting by picking up a $25 GC and pointing @ the promo (thus making the GC scanned first since i handed the GC first).

Basically i handed a GC, asked for a controller (locked), and then pointed to the promo asking if the GC was free. The cashier already scanned the GC at this point so i was basically manipulating the order she scanned everything lol.

Can someone help me sort out what appened in my case??

I'm new to the optimum app so just installed it and have a new card with 0 point.

In the app there was a promo: buy for 50$ and get 10k points. So i enabled this offer.

I went to SDM and bought a
DS4 74.99
Mario kart wii u 64.99$
Total 140.18$ ..

On my invoice there is a gift card 25 but removed afted to be free.

I got 2460 base points.
And 30000 bonus points
Total 32460points.

I tought I should have got 35000k point bonus... 10K plus 25K..

Got the points after 3 employees at local shoppers...
I think what they did is add the controller and the 25gc... then after the total that is when they enter the code...
Added surprise egg to make it $75...
