And the amount of points you earn.

Spouse Applied on Jun 14, instantly approved, but still not received the card. Lost in mail? Been getting reminders to activate the card.

Seems like everyone has the same issue. Haha. She said sometimes when the application is done online the info doesn’t go properly or there are typos. I’m like the card showed up at the right address so it would have been typed properly and transfered properly. I don’t mind if it’s a extra security step. I can see someone applying with your name and sending it to a different address for fraud purposes so this will catch them as the fraudster won’t have a copy of a bill and a photo is showing your address.

Anyways they gave me $12k to play. RBC only gave me $5k for my westjet card. That one I need more on if you want to book a good family vacation.
damn nice, i only got a measly 4k to play with lol...put income at 80k

So in my experience, you should still get your bonus, even if you only receive the "You've been approved for a PC Financial Mastercard" email instead of the "100k points" one.
I made my first purchase at SDM on Jun. 25 and receive an email today saying that I got a welcome offer of 20,000 bonus points. However, according to their terms & conditions: "Allow 2-3 weeks from qualifying purchase on your new card at Shoppers Drug Mart, Pharmaprix or participating Loblaw banner stores for bonus PC Optimum points to be awarded." Should I contact them now to clarify or wait 16 more days to see if additional bonus points will be given?

I cannot link the cc to my. Pts card.
So I went to the PC kiosk and ask them. Only 1 person was there and they were closing.
She asked me to show her my cc, and gave her my pc app to try to add.
After I entered my bday and the message showed. She took few more seconds than needed to look at the short message that told me to call. (probably to memorize my bday)
She then flipped my cc and told me to call that number on cc. (to memorize the 3 pin code in the back)
I have a strong feeling that she is stealing my identity and cc info.
She got my name, bday, cc number, and the 3 number security code when told me to call that number.
I realized too late.
Don't make the same mistake as me.
If I buy something that is not in deep discounted, my father will punish me; everyone will laugh at me. I will be the strange kid who doesn't fit in.

DP...got the email that I got the 100k PCO pts. I don't see them in the PC Optimum account, so I guess it's a matter of waiting 4-6 weeks then...SMH...

I received that email 2 days after I received my points.
My daughter received the email 2 days before her points arrived.
They’re all over the place.
The email telling me I received my points was the only email I received from them, aside from the vague approval email.
I didn’t receive any of the other emails everyone else received promoting the 100k points, showing which card you’re getting, or any other emails.

I got approved for the World Elite mastercard. My income is just meeting that 80k. Would they still need verification? I find it weird theyd approve me without asking.

Also, I only plan to use this for the extra points at those stores and this wont be my main card. Do i need to spend a minimum each year?

Do you mind me asking what the credit limit is and when you cancelled your last PC credit card?

Got $4k CL this year (whelp), a drop from the $5k CL they gave me last year. I cancelled early December last year (around December 2nd...which is why I applied for the card on June 2nd this year).
