Also I tried for the same account, and it wasn't working.

Same for me at No Frills. Wished coupon would just go thru automatically without employee intervention.

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):
Do you have the RCSS ones too please?

Just scan it like any item. An attendant will need to verify the coupon. New coupon is needed each weekend, just check the date.
Do you select store coupon when using the self checkout?

Are you looking for historical links, or UPCs? Probably more appropriate if I were to post them in this thread if there's truly any value. I don't have the URL for the Aug 28-30 one; just the UPC. They started at 410000015858, then 410000015865, then 41000001572, and this coming weekend it's 410000015889.

Scan as if you're scanning a product. In some cases it may work best if the attendant scans their card and enters an override first, but I think they've ironed out this wrinkle to mitigate this requirement.

Good to know! I know at RCSS it’s that way but I assumed NF would use the same self checkouts.

135+7=142
142+17=159
159+7=166
166+17=183.

So the bar code for next week is UPC=410000017183

The first week of this offer, I had the barcode scanned by the cashier. It showed on the receipt but never got added to our PC account. We did scan our PC barcode before scanning the offer.

Any idea why?

Cuz the PC Points program tries to scam people. You have to do a points inquiry. If you don't get it, return all that shit back to the store and let them know why.

You're telling me that I can distribute my weekly $100 grocery bill into 5 separate transactions for 25% off ($25) in points? Oh this will be interesting. LOL.

Yup, lots of people have done it, myself included. Just make sure you use the correct coupon. RCSS and NF has their own coupon with different UPC-A code (refer to previous posts)

If the person behind you gets upset that you’re doing that, offer them the coupon, $5 in point might make them happy.

I think self checkout works differently than the lines. One time I bought Pringle’s through self checkout, I did not get the special member price. When I went to customer service, the member price would come up when they scanned it there.

Looks like if there’s any discount (30% off, coupons, etc) , the attendant needs to verify it.

PS. Did you use it today, as on Tuesday? The coupon is only valid Friday, Saturday, Sunday. You may have committed fraud, but otoh, the attendant should have told you the coupon wasn’t valid
I used it on Friday, so it was valid. I did two checkouts. first one went through no issue, still needed the attendant to override, but second one when I used the same account, the attendant told me it's not valid. so I scanned my husband's card, and it went through. I like self check out because I can split my orders up based on different cards, but if lining up is better, I might go that route next time!

I'd just like last week's coupon. When I called regarding last weekends coupon they asked for a copy of it

Could just be a simple hiccup. I've had offers in the PC Optimum app and sometimes the item that comes with extra points doesn't actually appear after I purchase it. Open a query within the app and explain what points are missing. They usually can see fairly quickly that points weren't added, and then add them.
