Check your PC optimum offers this week to see if you have the free No Name Butter (454g) offer.
The price this week is $5 but I got mine for free Face Savouring Delicious Food.
Good luck everyone!

Did not get it either, never got anything for free from PC in the app, but that does not stop me from saying "Let's go Blue Jays!!!" :)
Hope PC will also say one day, Let's go, free butter!!!!, fingers crossed.

Nada. I don't think I've ever been offered "free" products, whether it be $0 or the equivalent value in points.

I think the closest I have is 5K points for Delission GB Pizza and 1K points at Shoppers on NN butter.

Still a great program. Occasionally you can double up and extra points on sale items. Combine it with bonus redemption and you can stretch your dollar pretty far.

Now if only Shoppers started selling discount sporting goods and high end electronics...

Every time I see these threads, I automatically know it's not going to appear in my offers. Angry Face

Are these free offers available out West where we only have No Frills, RCSS and a few unconverted Extra Foods locations?

Mine is not 'free'. It is free if I spend $40. PC must know I am a baller.

That makes it a cold deal. In Ontario, butter is $2.99-$3.49 on sale on every weekend at Shoppers. If I theoretically had $40 worth of Shoppers merchandise to buy, I could wait for the 20x the points and get $13.20 worth of points back on that $40. Which means, the butter actually costs me $10 of potential points, it doesn't save me $3.49.

The only situation where this would make any sense would be if I absolutely needed something on the day of the offer, and could not wait for 20x the points (which never happens). Or, for a senior who will buy 40+ worth of stuff because the 20 percent senior discount is preferable to 30 percent back in points. Even then, the senior discount is only on regular priced merchandise, which at Shoppers usually means it is already more than 20 percent over priced compared to other retailers.

Your deal is cold for sure, but if you can get it for free as OP got, then it's a great deal. I got the same deal as OP on my non-baller hardly used PC account. But didn't get the offer on my baller mostly used account Pensive Face

This butter is GROSS. I guess if it is free and you're struggling financially it is a great deal and better than nothing, but it seems to me they water this butter down. When you spread it on your toast and it melts, all the water comes out of suspension and makes everything wet and soggy. When you use it in baking the extra water will mess up your measurements and you'll end up with a wet batter. Better to spend a few extra dollars if you can!

Damn... never would've thought... First time picked it up and only because it was free. Let's see how it goes...

I think my account is flagged as ultra-baller status.

I handle the groceries/maxing out Optimum for an older family member, and they always get 20x the points. On my primary account, I only seem to get them when they have the flyer featured offer that everybody gets. I also more often than not get something ridiculous like SPEND 5000 DOLLARS GET 5K POINTS BACK WOW WHAT A DEAL!!!!!! (That is an exaggeration)

This is why I have a theory that people who go full RFD, and use Optimum to their maximum benefit get their account flagged. I almost never buy anything at Shoppers when there isn't 20x the points. The only merchandise I buy is stuff that is either the same price everywhere (like video game related stuff), or staples that are competitively priced (eggs, milk, coffee, etc). Then I redeem on the bonus redemption days, usually combined with 20x the points on the outstanding balance.

It isn't like I am going out and buying 5 Nintendo Switch consoles to re-sell on Kijiji, or otherwise abusing the system in any way. I just am a very frugal shopper with the Optimum system and only use it to my max benefit. I would guess they like people who impulsively buy overpriced stuff to "get the points".

You had me at “ I almost never buy anything at Shoppers when there isn't 20x the points” Smiling Face With Heart-shaped Eyes I shop the same way. If the item isn’t on sale already and I can’t get the 20x points on top I have no interest in buying that week. I also save my points for the Black Friday Mega redemption events they do once a year.

Is it really? like often at shoppers? I usually stock up when it goes on Sale at walmart or Costco.....places like food basics usually have a limit requiring me to make multiple purchases. We use lots of butter.

Give me a deal on grass fed butter. I paid $14.5/lb at Golden Ears cheesecrafters. Tastes, smells and nutritionally so much better than commercially produced butter.
