Thanks to Bubblegum86, you should be able to use at self checkout.

Hit start -> Optimus card -> scanned my barcode for points-> scanned merchandise -> clicked on button for discount and selected the one with the percentage off sign on it -> scanned 5k barcode and paid. Showed instantly in my app + receipt


I just scan the barcode for the coupon like any other item. No need for those extra steps.

Looks like the UPC increases by 1 each week (second last digit; last digit is the checksum which is calculated accordingly).

FWIW, here are the No Frills codes so far (this list provides no real value; just more for interest, and to emphasize that old barcodes cannot be re-used in subsequent weeks):

ah, so its always different UPC codes...but theres no limit on how many times u can use it per account right? as long as u scan the barcode..i think if u buy 10$ worth and u scan the code u might still get the 5k? ymmv

Is it unique or can I use the one posted above when I shop? I already shopped with the one given out two weekends ago. That is, I already signed up.

The code is unique to each weekend that they can be used, but everybody who sends "OFFER" via SMS to 374557, followed by postal code, gets the same URL response which goes to the same barcode/image cited in this thread.

In other words, directly access the http://r.3c.com/3X4Q6oG3 URL this coming weekend. It'll save you from having to send the SMS again (which would yield a response with the same URL provided).

It is a pattern of +7 then +17 and repeat.
135+7=142
142+17=159
159+7=166
166+17=183.

So the bar code for next week is UPC=410000017183
If I buy something that is not in deep discounted, my father will punish me; everyone will laugh at me. I will be the strange kid who doesn't fit in.

It should be 173, ie 410000017173

The second last digit increments always by one


And here's your barcode for Sept 25-27

Correct! But you should use UPC-A encoding of your barcode, not Code128. The scanners will likely work, but it's the wrong symbology/encoding.

Nice try. The ones so far fit the pattern, but the next one is not 410000017183, as that invalid.

The proper algorthm to arrive at the check (last) digit is to add the odd-numbered digits, and multiply by 3. Then add all the even numbered digits up and add to the previous result. Then take the modulo 10 of this (i.e. take the last digit), and that is your check digit.

So next in sequence is 41000001717C and we want to calculate C:
3x(4+0+0+0+7+7)+(1+0+0+1+1) = 3x18+3 = 57. 57 mod 10 = 3, so C=3.

Your code is an invalid UPC because the specified check digit (3) is wrong, so a system that validates the number would reject it. For code 41000001718, last digit should have been 0:
3x(4+0+0+0+7+8)+(1+0+0+1+1) = 3x19+3 = 60. 60 mod 10 = 0.

EDIT: Added example calculations
