You'll only receive points for the remaining portion over and above the $300 value you redeemed with points.

Is the general consensus that the SDM 20x deal is best deal to be had for the Switch?

I'd say so. That's what I did and you get just above $120 in points alone. I know some people sell their Switch after getting the points only to do it again and stack their points. The only other deal that might come close is probably a Black Friday deal that will either be $50 off max, or it will be bundled with a game or something.

Anyone see any spottings of the Switch Lite as SDM? I know they had some stuff before on "release date". I've tried calling a few and the stores don't know anything about Switch-anything.

For people in Ottawa the SDM on Robertson & Eagleson has some switches and the new Zelda. I just bought it.

The best promo would be get 30% points back on last black friday, it may happen this year too, the limit is 500,000 points back so you can pretty much buy anything you want as long as you have the points to redeem for a switch.

At least one near me has them, I assume the other 2 do as well. It's not near you in Mississauga though, so keep calling around.

There's a red box switch (one you want), this comes with the new improve battery life, then there's a white box (old stock).
Both versions comes with no games. (sold separately)

Both versions come with either grey joycons or blue & red joycons.

There were some bundled switch w/ game, but I haven't seen any of my local SDM carry them. (they exist)

I was texted by SDM for 20x points (Oct 15 only) PLUS it looks like today and tomorrow you get 25,000 bonus points on anything over $75.

I read the fine print on the $75 25,000 extra points and it looks like it stacks so probably going to get a Switch on my lunch today.


Bought Switch and Mario Odyssey $481+ tax ($538.81)
I got 143,700 in points back

I got a really good deal on a Switch but I'm reluctant to spend $80 on a game. Is buying games on 20x days my best bet?

Hey Guys,

Bumping this one up again as it looks like Shoppers has the mega redemption on right now (Use 200k points, save $100).

I also noticed that I have the 10K points per $30 spent offer, and wanted to bounce this off the collective mind to make sure I have things correct.

So for normal point return (no deals) we'd be looking at 15 points per $1, correct?
$400 x 15 points = 6000 points ($6 return)

So if we were to use the 20x points:
($400 x 15 points) x 20 = 120,000 points ($120 return)

For the 10K per $30 it would be:
($400/$30)*10000 = $133,333 ($133 return)

So it almost looks like the better deal to do the 10K per $30? Or am I missing something here?
