Would this work: buy $100 of HD GCs with $100 of PC GCs, and get $10 (10x) of petro-points?

Good idea! I'll try it out next time I go past... I need HD anyway, so I don't mind trading them and getting the points!!

Not sure if it's hot but if your doing renos and your goning to spend at Home Depot this might work. Promotion is 10x points for certain items.

if my math is correct.

$1 - 10 petro points regular

$50.00 gift card for Home Depot bought at Petro Canada x 100 = 5000

buy $1000.00 = 100000 points

at 300000 Petro points when converted to Sears points = 15000 Sears points = $600.00 in Sears gift certificates can be used for travel or Sears stuff.

free points are good !

-------------------------------------------------------

Use your Sears card to buy the Home Depot gift cards at Petro Canada.

Hmn math get really tricky now.

You should now be collecting points from 3 different sources.

Sears card at point of purchase + Petro points card + Home Depot bonus 10x

I emailed the custom service. The answer was NO. I went to the station. One guy tried to swipe my GCs for a large value GC. But the transaction was denied.

if Sears card can be used to buy HD GC then this becomes a super-hot deal that gives effective 24% off on everything at HD.

Calculations:
I have no clear idea how much ($) materials for a custom deck would be, but lets assume a $3,000 project.

Sears Points collected 3,000
Petro-Points collected 300,000

Converted Sears Points Total: 18,000
Redeemed Sears GC (at max level value) $720

$720 / $3,000 = 24% off

Now wait until next Friends&Family @ HD, and you can save a total of 34%.

hmmm. by my math: (details)

buy $1000 in HD GC's = 100,000 Petro Points.
convert 100,000 Petro points to 5000 Sears points (1,000 Sears=20,000 PetroPoints)
5000 Sears points gives $100 Sears GC
-edit - oh, right, rate goes up - $600 for 300,000 points

or, convert Petro Points to PC Points - (10,000=10,000) = 100 in groceries at Superstore et al.
