Another point is that the regular prices at SDM may already be more than 5.7% higher, which means that being able to make redemptions at Maxi (in QC) compensates for this "loss." I regularly price match for discounts greater than 6%.7-Endless wrote: ↑Nov 8th, 2017 11:26 pmI guess the point I was trying to get across is that just saying its 5.7% less may seem like it's not a big difference, but for me its much more important to look at the dollar value. I typically spend close to 3K a year at Shoppers so I'd be looking at $165 less in total...that's not an insignificant amount even though it's only 5.7% less...at that amount it starts to feel more like 57% lol.
The old tier system is gone, and the new regular redemption rate is 90k for $90, 100k for $100. The points have different values, and your existing points will be converted at a fair rate. You're right, clearly they won't offer 95k for $170, because that would be an insane 80% bonus. 95k is now worth $95 (though you can only redeem for $90 or $100). 100k for $150 would be a 50% bonus, which also seems pretty crazy. It's going to take a while to get used to the new numbers.
*GCs don't count as a purchase for SDM promotions.
*You can't buy GC's with Optimum points.
*You can only make one redemption on a single purchase.
