Does the conversion from PC points and Optimum points to the new system happen automatically on Feb 1st 2018 or do I need to do something?
I seem to remember reading somewhere that PC points convert automatically but Optimum points do not - one has to do something via an app (which I don't have)

faq answers it
the points convert automatically, and next time you shop(after program launch) using a sdm optimum point card or pc plus card, they will give you a new pc optimum points card.
or you can do it your self when the new app launches and linking to your current accounts and follow the prompts
Points convert automatically once the program launches on Feb 1st, and you have either down loaded the App or gone into the store to make a purchase (cashier swaps out the card for you ... Handy for those that only belong to SDM Optimum currently)
But if you now belong to both programs... The App is the way to go... First thing to do to get started. Sounds like it will come online ahead of time so people can link their two existing accounts into one, so when the program launches all points in BOTH programs will automatically combine.
And again, if after that you want a PC Optimum plastic card, ya just swap out the old one (ie PC Plus) with a Cashier
I think the transition will be easy.
Looks like Loblaws Group put a lot of thought into it, and making it as painless as possible, especially for PC Pls Members... While at the same time working hard to make it still feel familiar to Optimum members.
PS - My household account comments earlier in this thread WERE ACCURATE AT THE TIME OF THE 5:00 AM PRESS RELEASE... The wording has since been changed. And truly now makes more sense.
