Does anyone know, is the deduction before or after tax? My guess would be before, coz the points you earn is before the tax. But I could be wrong.
The points are treated as cash, you're not getting a $300 discount, so you're still paying tax on the full amount. Also fine print states taxes are applied prior to points redemption.

Nintendo Switch ... 200K points become 300K points and becomes $79.99
Xbox One X ... 200K points become 300K points and becomes $299.99
PS4 ... 200K points become 300K points and $379.99 becomes $79.99

What is showing does not come with any games.

Interesting too was that I was sent a 15x SDM points which says it can be used during this time period so you might be able to save even more if you got such an offer. Unfortunately I am not in position to do this. : S LOL!

Face With Tears Of Joy Most people try to optimize their airline and hotel points programs through work travel, I try to optimize my Shoppers points through my prescriptions paid by work insurance.
It works on prescription meds?!? Even though the insurance covers basically 100% for me and I only pay the dispensing fee?

So you're either earning points or spending your points or a little of both. Racking up the points when you can before the redemption allows you to double dip.
Maybe you know the answer to this... I have a 20x the points for today as well as the massive redemption that everyone else has. Can I purchase the switch for $79.99 if I redeem 200k points and then earn 20x the points on the difference I have to pay for the switch? Basically double dipping on the offers is what im asking. So essentially I would get 20x on the $80 i’m spending to pay for the rest of the switch that I used my 200k points with.

Not really a good deal since prices have increased since black friday / boxing day... although you would need a time machine to get the lower prices... lol

Absolutely. But it's not really double dipping. Just qualifying for two offers at the same time.

Ok thanks! That’s great! By the way, is that 20x the points only good for one time? Or is it good for the duration of the “deal”? Like can I use the 20x more than once in the span of the two days its on for?

Isn't there already a thread about spend your points promo? I mean, I guess we could start one for every other item that shoppers sells

Appropriate post made by you considering your nick but uh considering I spoke only of gaming I think that this is in it's appropriate place.

For some wanting a deal that is good now and not wait for something else and in the meantime could end up dying and never getting the thing uh this could be a good deal for them. $100 in free SDM points towards the purchase plus they will at least earn regular SDM points on what they actually pay and like I said an emailed 15x to them might work with this. Also even if it does not the Xbox One X came with Fallout 76 most of the time which gamers know is worthless. So don't even factor that in as something good others got during Xmas / Boxing Day whatever. On top of that I think all games included with the system were digital. As for the Nintendo Switch I keep hearing people looking for it at various stores and not being able to find it and so if they still have the points and could not get it during the holiday season and can get this now for $79.99 I'd say that is better than they will do at EB Games, Best Buy and so on.

For 2019 .....

so far this is the best deal one is going to get on these things.

A 20x event would generate $150 in points on xbox x and 114 on switch. this event generates $100. There have been numerous mid week, weekend, and personal offers that have offered 20x in 2019. Since you have to get your points somehow for redemptions like the one you list, the 20x are a better way to go and is the best deal so far in 2019.

A life spent making mistakes is not only more memorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.
