[Chapters Indigo] Plum Points "Top Up" emails sent out (YMMV)

Just got an email that my Plum Points have been topped up. Went from $20 to $50, so a nice (birthday) surprise. Says it expires June 30th.

Check your emails!

I've been a Plum member since 2011 and I've never gotten one of these top ups...

Is there something specific I should be doing, or do I need a minimum amount to qualify?

This is only my second "top up". First one I had $5 in points but was topped up to $20. This time, $20 topped up to $50. Perhaps others can chime in with any potential requirements to trigger this. Have you bought in-store or online recently?

Most recent purchase was with the buy 2 get 1 graphic novel promotion in March, so yeah. Usually a purchase at least every other month

Are you in their email list? I didn't get any top up before since I wasn't in email list. After in the list, I have got twice. I suspect they don't top up if they cannot tell you

I think during these times it would be a great move to just give this top up to everyone.

Nothing again. I got it three times before but didn't get anything for the last 2-3 times they did this.

They have been providing free shipping to everyone.

I received the top up. Wasn't expecting it as they topped me up a few months ago. I'm not sure what triggers eligibility, but I think I hit all the possible triggers. I keep my points near the 50$ mark and this is the 2nd time I've been topped up to 100$ in points. I cash them out for 2 20$ giftcards and that puts me back close to the 50$ points mark.

I redeemed it on an egift card last time to avoid the expiry.

I think it may be the best way. I'm pretty sure that you don't get points when you pay with points, but you will get them if you pay with a gift card.

That was the issue, don't know why I wasn't signed up.

Oh well, at least I got a 10% coupon in the meantime
