[Loblaws] [YMMV] PC K-Cup 30pc boxes - "FREE" w/ PC Plus Points

Huge YMMV on this, could be location specific. Went to the East Mall & Burnhamthorpe location last night to buy a couple of these boxes since I got a personalized offer for 1400 PC Points on these, and in-store they were giving another 4000 points. I figured, $15 for 30 K-Cups, and $5.40 in points wasn't bad, so I'd grab a couple.

My wife looked at the receipt when we were in the car and asked,

Her: "Why were the boxes $3.94?"
Me: "Sweetheart, you're crazy, you must be looking at it wrong."
Her: "No HorizonXP, it's showing $3.94. You always doubt me, WTF??"
<fight ensues>
Me: "Holy shit, you're right, let's go back and get more! These things are basically free!"

So with the in-store offer of 4000 points, these become effectively free. They are still marked on the shelf as $14.99, and stock was limited, so YMMV on this one. Have fun!

See attached receipt.

Given that I had just fought with her, I just said yes when she said she wanted a bag. 9/10 times, I'd carry that stuff in my hands since I usually forget the stupid grocery bags in my trunk.

you are a smart man not to argue further with her over $0.06.

It is not a personalized offer - this 4000 PC Points on 30 pack of K Cups- it is on the back page of the flyer and is public ( everyone) offer.

No loading or app required.

That's correct, the 4000 points is not personalized.

The 1400 points I got was a one-time-use offer I got through the app.
