PCF Mastercard - 5x Points - July 15 - Aug 15 [YMMV]

Expiry:
August 15, 2020
Retailer:
PC Mastercard
Got this in my email, so YMMV. Looks like PC Mastercard has 5x points on certain items for the first $500.
More than ever, we want to make sure you’re getting the most for every dollar you spend. Just by opening this email, you’ll earn 5x the regular 10 PC Optimum™ points per dollar with your PC Financial Mastercard® on your first $500 of select essential purchases between July 15 and August 15, 2020. That’s at least 50 points per $1 spent.

Offer excludes Quebec residents. Upon opening this email, earn 5X the regular 10 PC Optimum™ points per dollar of your first $500 in purchases in select categories from July 15 to August 15, 2020. Offer does not apply to prior purchases. The 5x the points earning is the sum of: (i) the regular PC Optimum™ earning on your PC Financial Mastercard® (which varies by card type); and (ii) the “PC Financial Essential Purchases Bonus” earning, which is the difference between your regular earning rate and 5x the points on each dollar spent on eligible categories with your PC Financial Mastercard ®. You will also earn any additional points that your purchase may be eligible for at Loblaw banner grocery stores and Shoppers Drug Mart, and at least 30 points/litre as advertised at Esso and Mobil stations in Canada. Your regular PC Optimum™ earning rate will be awarded to your account throughout the offer period as you make purchases on your PC Financial Mastercard® and the “PC Financial Essential Purchases Bonus” will be awarded within 4-6 weeks after the offer end date. Select essential purchases include the following categories:
• Loblaw banner grocery stores
• Shoppers Drug Mart
• Esso™ and Mobil™ stations in Canada
• Restaurant Pick-up and Delivery Services (MCC 5499, 5812, 5813, 5814)
• Audio, Video and Cable Streaming Services (MCC 5968, 4899, 5815)
Eligibility of purchases in the dining and streaming categories is based on the Merchant Category Codes (MCC) shown above. Merchants control their own MCC and President’s Choice Bank has no control over how a merchant is classified. This offer is limited to one per PC Financial Mastercard® account and the offer may be terminated or changed at any time without notice.

Received this offer as well.

Here is the fine print :
*Offer excludes Quebec residents. Upon opening this email, earn 5X the regular 10 PC Optimum™ points per dollar of your first $500 in purchases in select categories from July 15 to August 15, 2020. Offer does not apply to prior purchases.
The 5x the points earning is the sum of:
(i) the regular PC Optimum™ earning on your PC Financial Mastercard® (which varies by card type); and (ii) the “PC Financial Essential Purchases Bonus” earning, which is the difference between your regular earning rate and 5x the points on each dollar spent on eligible categories with your PC Financial Mastercard ®. You will also earn any additional points that your purchase may be eligible for at Loblaw banner grocery stores and Shoppers Drug Mart, and at least 30 points/litre as advertised at Esso and Mobil stations in Canada. Your regular PC Optimum™ earning rate will be awarded to your account throughout the offer period as you make purchases on your PC Financial Mastercard® and the “PC Financial Essential Purchases Bonus” will be awarded within 4-6 weeks after the offer end date. Select essential purchases include the following categories:
• Loblaw banner grocery stores
• Shoppers Drug Mart
• Esso™ and Mobil™ stations in Canada
• Restaurant Pick-up and Delivery Services (MCC 5499, 5812, 5813, 5814)
• Audio, Video and Cable Streaming Services (MCC 5968, 4899, 5815)
Eligibility of purchases in the dining and streaming categories is based on the Merchant Category Codes (MCC) shown above. Merchants control their own MCC and President’s Choice Bank has no control over how a merchant is classified. This offer is limited to one per PC Financial Mastercard® account and the offer may be terminated or changed at any time without notice.

So the grocery and gas are not based on MCC but the current accelerator.

ah that sucks. :( I was hoping it was 5% on top of whatever your cashback is.

Makes sense, thought you saying WE cards don't get this deal.

Is it safe to assume it's 5% flat out at RCSS? Or is it just for certain items?

How does that work for their gas stations? They already pay 7x the points for Mobil stations so would this be 35x the points?!? Seems unlikely

Was feeling left out, but I just got the email. These are likely sent out in batches and there are likely limits to how many they can deploy at once without being blocked.
