Lol or probably just someone who read the terms and conditions of the offer unfortunately.

Just a heads up. First two weeks I used the coupon multiple times with the same cashier. Asked them to tell me each time I hit $20 and paid and used a different PCO account and used it again. (I have a few PCO accounts) Last weekend the cashier was adamant I could only use it once regardless if I had more than one PCO account. May be best to use self checkout or use different lanes for each $20 increments.

Worked for me. Two transactions at self checkout.

Weird that the NF closest to me only accepts debit/MasterCard. What the?? Is this normal?

NF does not accept AMEX or Visa at any locations I go to if that's what you are asking.

Did you try tapping the Visa card?
the location close to me, the system only shows debit / Mastercard
but a No Frill rep, told me I can use Visa too
he said to select other option, but I didn't see it
I simply select the only option they have for credit card
and tap my visa

edit: At the cashier, they only take Debit or Mastercard ( no visa)

Yes that’s what I was asking.

In Ottawa we have two locations.. east end takes MC/Visa, but this new store only takes MC. So it was weird to me.

I've been using Visa for my transactions at self checkout. On my way now to do my fifth purchase between $20 and $22 pre tax. Received the 5,000 points each time. Solid deal. THanks OP.

2 - self check out - scanned coupon twice - asked assistant to confirm it had been accepted, she hit a couple buttons and confirmed - showed up on the receipt; and,
3 - self check out - scanned coupon twice and it showed up on the receipt. also, purchased $20 worth of chicken so got another 1,500 points in store.

Did the cashier scan the coupon for your 2nd transaction? You have to scan the coupon for each transaction. The system accepts multiple uses automatically without human action. The only time that you won’t get points after the 1st time is the ‘hard working and responsible’ cashier won’t allow you because they read and follow the rule. You are the only one so far that didn’t get the points for doing the inquiry. Maybe they know they had fixed the missing points problem now so they will check each inquiry carefully.

You should have returned everything from your first transaction and rebuy them at self checkout.

It may be different at each jurisdiction or store even. There’s places where interaction by attendant is needed if coupon is used while other places it’s not. As they say, YMMV

Well that was fun. Just asked the cashier to cash out every time I hit over $20. 7x scored 35000 points.

Try the self checkout, I've noticed any NF near me, at the checkout don't accept visa credit but do visa debit but the self service at the same location does accept visa credit
