Any data points for last year's program?

Points promos are done in coordination with the manufacturers, so last year is not necessarily going to be the same as this year.

Overall, the points promo generally provides good value for items you use. I find it often puts the item near the usual sale price (sometimes lower, sometimes higher). But the price of the item at RCSS is generally the regular price (not like it's a sale price AND points promo). If I recall, this is the time when we often see "Get x000 points for spending $y of this brand". It looks great on the surface (example: 3000 points for $7 spent), but the regular price of an item often means you spend $9 (in that case). So keep that in mind, and make sure you take that into account.

Where you win with the points promo is where you match another grocery store with RCSS (or whatever PC Optimum store you shop at). This way you get points off a sale price, which then makes it a really good price. I would recommend this as the best strategy to maximize your points.

So this is an announcement about a deal which we don't know about?

Kinda like the Ontario government making an announcement about an announcement, for something happening 10 days from now.

Btw, this "sale" will be crap.

I wish Superstore/Loblaws would treat their employees better and pay them more. Especially since they are making a killing.

I don't think this thread needs to exist, personally. We are talking about these deals in multiple threads

Yea site overloaded i guess.

I checked it last night after midnight.. Bunch of 30-50% back in points. Plus ton of store specific offers (RCSS flyer says over 1mil in points, and yea has points on like everything.. So if you combine instore and the offers, seems really good.

But yea depends what your after, not everything is there. Though there is a storewide offer too. (25k points for $250 spend instead of there usual random giftpack item)

Eh I thought there were lots of decent offers.
50% back on Cheerios, Danone yogurt, and Energizer batteries, 40% back on Delissio etc etc.

OP should have actually listed some deals though. I don’t know if those ones are personalized or universal.

It depends where you shop. Points Days is across all Loblaws banners. So it makes a difference if you use an offer at No Frills or SDM. Being in Montreal, I shop mainly at SDM which is close by while the discount banner Maxi is far. So 50% on Cheerios on the outrageously high regular price from SDM doesn't mean much. You have to know the market. Specials and Points Days don't always allign. That's why it's "meh" for me.

On most of the "deals" the prices from last week are a couple dollars more for the regular price, so with the points for most items it is the same as regular price. Cheerios family size for example has been 4.99 for several weeks, today when the "deals" started they became 6.99. So I guess you may save a little, but in looking at some items it really isn't much of a deal at all.

Also, these bonus points are non-stackable with 20X the points offer.

How does this work with price matching?

Can you price match e.g. FreshCo at No Frills and still get the No Frills pts?

I’ve price matched at RCSS with Giant Tiger pricing and got RCSS points, so I assume yes.

Anybody know which pack sizes and types of energizer batteries will qualify? Only the ones in the picture, or all types of energizer batteries?

The 20x points isn't on this week far as I can tell. Perhaps you have a personal targeted one.

SDM either does redemption bonus or 20x, not both, atm it's redemption bonus.

Yes, you’re right. I have a 20,000 pts for $60.00 total spend, not 20X. In any case the fine print reads that neither is applicable to stack.
