Was hoarding pts and finally decided to buy a switch during this redemption offer. They had the neon edition at the shoppers at 6th and 6th in new westminster. Picked it up alongside mario kart 8 deluxe & some odds and ends. $399.99 & $79.99 for the game at standard prices. Saw some offers online, but at the end of the day, the redemption offer made it worth it to me. Ended up using 430k pts worth $538 (50k redemption on one transaction was bumped up to $63 in value versus 62.50) and paid $74 out of pocket on a total of $612 worth of goods. All in all I'm happy w my purchases. Loaded up on pure leaf organics fuji apple & ginger iced teas as part of this. I'm used to paying 2.99+ for these, and they were $2 each or 1600 pts apiece today. Good luck to anyone else looking to finally redeem their hoarded pts.

I was told electronics are final sale, although it doesn’t say that on shoppers website, individual franchisee makes their own rules. Even if product is defective, they will not take it back, you are asked to contact manufacturer directly for warranty. This is off putting.

yes, it's up to the manager on site.
so store specific.
But, realistically, you're buying a big box name brand piece of hardware that you KNOW will be taken care of in the first 30 days with no real issues.
The trade off for this (and rarely occurring fault issue) is you get to use your points and get a great (really great deal if you really think about it... where else matches such a deal?! )
Now, if you're buying straight. You don't collect points, then, most likely, you're not buying such things at shoppers to begin with.

This works in your favour too. You know you're not buying someone else's returned products.

I actually hope this is not true, as it's easy to get your hands on fake sealing tapes for numerous brands now.

I thought shoppers senior sale is for 65+? If it's 60 that'd be great as my dad visits me all the time :)
Shoppers senior 20% is neither age 65 nor 60 ... Their senior eligibility kicks in at age 55 actually :D

I just got Zelda for the Switch for ~$3.50 tx in after exchanging 70000 points! Super hot deal! Smiling Face With Sunglasses
Can someone confirm this? From what I read from earlier posts the redemption doesn't cover tax, so for Zelda at regular price $80, one can only use 60k points (worth $75) and pay the remainder plus tax ($15.4 in Ontario). From your post, it seems that you use 70k points (worth $87.5) and pay less than $3.5 for the remainder. Which one is true?

That person might be bc, ab or such province where tax is less and they could have bought a drink or something for a couple bucks more to redeem in the next bracket or such.
Also. His/her shoppers may have had the game at a slightly different price.

I think it varies from store to store depending on management. 60 is generally a sure thing but 55 isn't.

How is this promotion supposed to work? I bought for around 75$ worth of stuff, the lady redeemed 50K points and made me pay the rest. I had over 100K points.

Just got a note that the spend your points bonus is extended until Tuesday. I think that the $30 netflix card and get 5000 bonus ($5) is pretty good to load up on to your netflix account.

Does anybody know if I use points for the netflix GC, will i still get the 5000 bonus points?

Thanks!
