More Rewards Pile Up the Points

Last year's discussion: earn-20-000-more-rewards-85-80-value-wh ... s-2168676/

How many bonus points can I earn?
Shop at 3 Partners 2,000 Points
Shop at 4 Partners 5,000 Points
Shop at 5 Partners 20,000 Points

You should be getting at least 1 More Rewards point from each partner you shop at. For Petro Can you have to link your More Rewards card with Petro Can account.



It's not a really hot deal but still something you can take advantage of.

I usually avoid going to SoF in GVA as they're super way overpriced. However, from this event you can get up to 20,000 points which is equivalent to more than $120 savings if you use the points wisely.

BC Ferries Travel Voucher - Vehicle & Driver Voucher - One Way Fare: 7500 points + $45, which means you get $40 off from the 7500 points
Sea to Sky Gondola - Adult (19-64) - 2600 points + $26, which means you get $16 off from the 2600 points

Last year the rate was even better. That's why I don't like the OW group. They constantly jack up prices.

Anyways, it's not hard to accomplish the quest.

Here is what I'm planning to do:

1. Shop at SoF/Pricesmart
2. Gas at Petro Can (Hard for me as I'm driving an EV now but still I can just go and buy something a the CVS)
3. Panago - last year I just bought a small bottle of juice, $1.
4. Vancouver Attractions - go online and buy the cheapest kid fare for any attraction, if you're not planning to go.
5. The last one is a bit hard as last year they're pairing with Carrots but unfortunately Carrot is gone for good RIP :(
I probably will go to oxygen yoga and sign up for a one week trial. Just $10 bucks.
08/21/2019: I just came back from oxygen yoga. The manager told me only membership purchase is qualified for More Rewards points. The lowest cost is to purchase the one week trial. They don't have a machine to scan the card so she took my card to her computer to manually enter the number. Not sure if she did that right so I suggested that if you wanna go to oxygen yoga you'd better be quick to make sure the points will post correctly into your card before Aug 31.

2 to 5 are extra spending to me but those should be less than $20 in total and get me $120 back.

Enjoy :D

Seems like no minimum purchase amounts required this year.

Usually don't shop at Pricemart/SOF. Is it a minimum of $1 spend to get 1 point there?

yes you get 1 point for every $1 you spend (I remember 99cent will get you a point)

If you shop at PriceSmart and Save On does that count as two different partners?

If you can’t think of what to buy at SOF, their Western Family ice cream is on sale this week for $2.99. The Nanaimo bar flavour is great.

OP, I love your strategy. Thanks for sharing!

I usually agree but you can find some good deals every now and then. I love their Strawberry Black Forest Cake and it's usually $14.99 (or $16.99?) but it was on sale for $9.99 2 or 3 flyers ago which I thought was a great deal considering that's the lowest I've ever seen.

I do like your plan though. Looking at the vendors, it looked impossible to fulfill another 2 vendors (Save Ons, Petro, Panago are easy) so maybe I'll follow your lead. Seems the most cost efficient.


EDIT: Nitobe Memorial Garden Child fare is $4. Seems to be the cheapest on Vancouver Attractions.


EDIT 2: nvm, Child Bloedel is $3.30


EDIT 3: T&Cs show Panago and Oxygen Fitness do not allow online purchases? Bummer in terms of convenience.

So what’s the cheapest way of taking advantage of this deal?

I’ll buy some grocery, fill up on gas, and get pizza.

Can I buy a pen at Accent Inns and a water bottle at Oxygen yoga?

It does specify to "shop at different partner locations" multiple times (instead of simply "shop at different partners"), so technically we should be able to shop at two different Save-on-Foods locations, for instance, and be good, though that may require you to fight for your points

Anyone willing to risk it for the biscuit

No it wouldn't work. From their FAQ "If I make two transactions at one partner, will this qualify as shopping with two partners?
The requirement for entry is one transactions per individual partner. For example, to qualify for the 3 partner bonus, you will need to make 1 transaction at three distinct partners."

Does your Petro Points card have to be linked to your More Rewards card? Or can I just have them scan my More Rewards card and it'll still work? The wording is getting me a bit confused.


EDIT: nvm read their FAQ:

To earn More Rewards points at Petro-CanadaTM, you will need to link your Petro-PointsTM and More Rewards card together prior to purchase. For further information, visit https://www.morerewards.ca/petro-points.


Darn, I just made a purchase today and just had the cashier scan my More Rewards card.

Rewards catalogue has really reduced the number of choices offered for redemption. You could redeem for a lot of merchandise before (although likely not the best value). If I remember, they had 20+ pages of rewards you could redeem for before. Not sure it's worth collecting points anymore with the limited selection now

I purchased a bar of mentos at Petro-Can on Tuesday (with my More Rewards card linked with Petro Points) and I got the points the next day.

Now I've accomplished four:

1. SoF
2. Petro Can ($1.65)
3. Vancouver Attractions ($6.6)
4. Panago (with $1.10 juice, but I donated 90 cent change to the guy who held door for me and asked me for the change, so $2)

I'm heading to Oxygen Yoga and see if buying a bottle of water counts. If yes, then my unnecessary expenses will be 1.65+6.6+2+(a bottle of water) which will be < $15 in total to get $120 points back.

If anyone finds cheap stuff to buy at SpeedyGlass let me know.

Thanks

Why not just do a home insurance quote for a freebie?
