So reedeming 50k points (=$50) gets you $65 off?
I.e. I buy something for $70, reedem 50k points and only approx. $5?

Same goes for the other levels? If true that's a huge savings.

Maybe I just don't know what the word reedem means....

It means you use your 50k points to get $65 discount.
If you buy $70, youll end up paying 70*1.13-65 = $14.1 (assuming 13% tax)

OP, I assume you have early access to the flyer? What is there good to buy? If it is actually 200k points to get $300, then that is percentage wise equal to 300k points for $450 in the past and a good deal.

This is not too bad of a deal. I already redeemed most of my points when they had the 40% back in points deal (got a PS4 Pro, so I got 200K points back after redeeming 500K). Old Post here.

Check your account. I have 2 promos available for Tuesday 15th and Wednesday 16th. Get 25% back in points when redeeming over 50000 points. And the other one 20× points over $50 spend.

Sorry, a bit confused. Does this mean:

1. Redeem 50k points get $65 off (instead of $50?)
2. Redeem 100k get $140 off (instead of $100?)
3. Redeem 200k get $300 off (instead of $200?)


If so, then:

1. 30% redemption bonus
2. 40% redemption bonus
3. 50% redemption bonus

I just want to make sure I understand this correctly. 50% redemption bonus would be a record high, no? I thought 40% was the precious high and very hard to come by.

Also, is this a one purchase deal, or all day?

Can anyone confirm?

If what the op is saying is correct then yes redeem 200k points and get $300 worth of product. Would be the best value I think.

Generally it's an all day event so you should be able to go more than once if you have that amount of points. Glad I saved a bunch for this event.

FYI, the whole ON flyer was posted to a competitor site Sunday evening. (hint: The site with a name similar to Vancouver's hockey team...? The mods tend to edit my posts when I drop heavier hints. But, yes, the OP has posted the correct redemption levels).


edited to add: People, do NOT repost pics from other sites!

1. It's rude. Unless you asked the OP of the pic and they okayed it. In which case, they might actually give you a copy of it without watermarks.
2. RFD MODERATORS WILL DELETE COMPETITOR IMAGES. (Especially when there's a WATERMARK with the competitor site all over the pic.) Just saying.

Would this stack with the targeted PC Optimum promos?

I'd like to know too. I believe max is 500k redemption points per transaction (?) Please correct me if I am wrong.

In this scenario, which points balance counts towards the max? Ie. 200k redeem for 300k. I'm assuming this would count as redeeming 300k of the 500k max.

i don't see why not. would have to be 2 transactions though and you'd have to pay tax on the $300

It depends how you look at it. The best way to get $450 worth of stuff at SDM was the 40% points rebate offer from before Christmas. At that time, you would spend 450K points but get 180K points rebated, for a net expense of 270K points.
Here, that same $450 of stuff costs you 300K points straight up. So, not quite the highest redemption level, but better if you don't have the 450K points upfront.
Bottom line, both are a great use of your points, provided you can spend that much at SDM.
