It's 1 account per person. You have different family members who may shop with Optimum branded stores? Great, get them to sign up. Maybe you have them participate in the promo for you and you can work something out amongst your immediate family.

1 account per person. You have to think, what if there's an issue that requires you to verify the account? Verify your identity? What if you are called out on your multiple accounts? What are you going to do then?

It's in the terms. It's not allowed. Please stop suggesting this.
I've seen it a few times where people say read the terms - 1 acount per person. I've asked, where does it state this in the PC Optimum Terms and Conditions? Maybe you can point it out...?

Correct me if I’m wrong but wouldn’t it be best to buy the gift cards from SDM using the PC Financial MC CC because of their 45 pts per $1 earn? So you get an extra 4,500 pts per $100 spend?

I guess part of the point is they can take your points away for any reason, so it might not be a good idea to push it.

For what it's worth, I have multiple accounts (attached to real people) in my household and have used them to get deals like this twice. There wouldn't be a way for them to distinguish if my family member exists or not, and I haven't been banned. There is no way for them to know that my grandma didn't also want Apple Gift cards, or that my grandma does or doesn't exist (she exists, believe me, I know).

The type of people who get banned are usually resellers who buy 12 Nintendo Switch consoles weekly, while gaming the points offers to get them for cheaper. The main thing they use as a condition of banning people is a term that is something like regular household use.

If you have 2 or 3 active accounts with different names/e-mail addresses, and you're doing mostly normal stuff, I suspect you won't get banned but it's YMMV and your risk. If someone creates 8 accounts the same day to get $3000 worth of Apple gift cards...who knows.
I will tell my grandchildren about the deal I got on an HP Touchpad at the Bank street staples thanks to rfding.

Does anyone know, if I buy one of these gift cards from an Esso or Mobil convenience store, will the purchase qualify for this offer?

You receive 15 points with any form of payment (after scanning your PCO card) at SDM

Edit: except for items that are on the excluded list (ie. Gift Cards etc)

Yes, 30 points when you pay with PC Financial WE.

Leverage wrote: Heads up for anyone stocking up on Apple for a device purchase: by paying with GCs (at a 15% discount per this deal) you're giving up the extended protection warranty available with a lot of credit cards. (I use my Tangerine MC for this)

If you haven't heard of it, it's a free insurance where your credit card company extends the manufacturer's warranty by an extra year on the condition that you charge the full device purchase to your credit card. I only vouch for this because I personally used it on a failed motherboard/logic board on month 20 of a MacBook purchase myself, and was fully covered. If you purchase AppleCare, this is moot, though.

The 15% discount up front may offset that benefit for some though, just wanted to spread the info!
Good point. Note that some credit cards don't extend the warranty on refurbs, so if planning to purchase something refurbished from apple this is a good route to go if your card excludes refurb in the terms.

Hi Ron! Oh, yes no PCO points for buying GCs when you scan your PCO card.

So, I am guessing one would only receive 30 points when they pay with PC WE MC?

I will edit my previous posting!

Fine print says max $500, more than half the posters agree, there’s a couple ones that say no cap.

Self checkouts at the grocery stores are your best bet at this point to find out, please report back if you try it and succeed at more than the max stated.

So what if I have two accounts linked to my family optimum? Can one account buy$500 and another $500 and be fine? Or since they are linked that’s no go?

They are different account numbers…just shared points

Thanks.

Ya, I confirmed it myself also on the Esso FAQ page:
https://www.esso.ca/en-ca/pc-optimum-faq

"Will I be able to earn PC Optimum™ points on purchase of gift cards at stations?
No. Points can be earned on almost anything in store; however, gift cards are not included."

Rats!

The fine print said max $500 the last couple of times too, but that wasn't being enforced. It wouldn't surprise me if they fix it at some point - now would be a good time, since this is a better offer, 15% back vs 10%.

Personally I would wait to see if anything is different this time around before doing any big spending.

The main difference this time is if the offer is tied to the app and it disappears after a single use like the terms say then the system would enforce it by just not having the offer any more for the second transaction.
