Btw anyone had an error saying max household invites reached? I couldn’t start a new household.

Also, had issue redeeming at sdm online today. It keeps saying card could not be authorized. I double checked. All cars info is correct. Tried different cards, no luck
If you're getting that message, its a positive indicator your account is locked. You will need to call them as that's the easiest way to attempt to have your account reactivated. You can still earn but can't redeem until the locked account has been resolved. Their reasoning behind locking your account usually involves suspicious activity on your account-earning or redeeming patterns.

Good luck!

Anyone else having an issue trying to create a household? Keeps giving me an error when trying to add, I can still redeem so that's not an issue. I'm thinking after the ps5 yesterday that there may be some problems.

Lol are you just saying the same thing to everyone? I literally said I can redeem still so how would my account be locked? Don't comment without knowing what you're talking about.

There have been a few people posting over the last two weeks that have the same problem with the Household.
We did not have an answer for them on the forum.

I am not sure if any have been resolved or not ...... was causing great frustration

Comments ? @Nauth and @Styleman

Yeah it's really weird, haven't had a problem with household in the past but haven't tried it in the last month or so. Hoping it's just a technical error and they get it sorted soon.

Edit: I was reading the previous post but it seems that my error is different than yours is, do you get the email still? I get the error after I hit submit to send a request for someone else to join and vice versa. It doesn't seem to be going through at all.

Woops, my bad! I misread and thought you had the same issue as the others. Yes, I have the same issue too with adding household. The email comes through for the person I'm adding but when clicking the red Join Household button, it bring them to their PC Optimum app and nothing happens (no prompt to join appears).

No worries! Didn't mean to come off as rude, so seems that it's a widespread issue with households as redeeming doesn't seem to be an issue for many, just wish it didn't happen this weekend for this bonus redemption lol

Did anyone else get this weird SDM bonus redemption offer?

You spend $20 on just about anything in the store. When you use 10,000 points toward the purchase, they give you 10,000 points off. So when the dust clears, you've spent 10,000 in points for $20 worth of stuff. I was like "what?" and thought there had to be a catch. But there wasn't. Hubby did it today. He bought $20 worth of stuff that was a good price with 50% off (paid $10, got $20). When he went to pay, there was actually a message on the cash register asking if he wanted to redeem 10,000 and get the extra 10,000 off. And he did. No catch. I hope others got that one!
So let it be e-mailed...so let it be done!

Nice offer! Did it show in the app beforehand or was it a surprise at the register?

It was under hubby's personal offers. It was way down at the bottom. It would be easy to miss because there's so much other stuff on there at the bottom these days. We read it over a bunch of times as we couldn't believe what it said. We were able to combine it with some special offer for Diet Pepsi six-packs for $1.99. There was a similar one for a deal on butter, but we don't eat animal products. I don't know why we keep getting that one. Anyway, hubby also found Folger's instant and Maxwell House decaf instant on for $2.99 and Salon Pas 40s, which was a score for 50% off. All of the items were.
So let it be e-mailed...so let it be done!

We have had that offer before, it only comes when your points balance is 10,000 - 19,999 points.

This weekend I got "get up to $40 off when you redeem 30,000 points," but I redeemed my points last Monday @ Superstore.

Hubby had just over 23,000 points. But that's still a lower points total, so that might be the general idea. I like that it had a low redemption threshold, as neither hubby nor I tends to ever have more than 30,000.

Couldn’t rotate offers with the household trick. Is it now banned to join/rejoin right away?

Checked my Cards section and it’s still “earn and redeem with this card”

I guess they set a timeout for accounts to join and rejoin?

Same here, I got an error and haven’t done the household trick in over a week
