[Provigo] Sharp Aquos 4K HDR 50" Smart TV $190 after 80,000 PCO points bonus

From Thursday, November 26th to Wednesday, December 2nd.

The price is $270 but there's a PC Optimum points promotion.
Get 40,000 points for every $100 spent on general merchandise.
That should yield 80,000 points worth $80 (plus any extra bonus you might get later during a bonus redemption event).
You could also add a $30 filler item to get past $300 and earn 120,000 points worth $120.
Taxes are on the full amount.

There's also a Westinghouse Roku 4K HDR 55" Smart TV $200 after 80,000 PCO points bonus.

It's a good option as a secondary TV for the bedroom or the kitchen to watch the news.
It's cheap: less than $200 for a name-brand (Sharp) 50" HDR TV is hot IMO.
I'd rather get a Sharp than an RCA.
It works with Amazon Alexa.
Review

$378 at Visions

$398 at Walmart

Title is misleading, personally. The TV $270 with points to be used later.

Still a decent price though.

Great price for a 50" for sure, but know that Sharp is no longer the "name brand" company that made Aquos tvs.

Misleading title? Really? "after 80,000 PCO points bonus"

I think people who already are a PC Optimum member via Shoppers/Pharmaprix Provigo/Maxi are used to this kind of deals that involves points.

You could immediately go buy $80 worth of stuff on special at Maxi. :)

Apparently Loblaws in Ontario had limited supplies of these TV's which were sold out within an hour or so, with many snatched up by their own staff.

If you buy this unit with PC points, do you get those 40,000 points or it has to be purchased with $$ ?

Since no one replied, I would venture that it's cash only because the offer mentions "for each $100 spent".

Well, to be fair, you pay taxes on these points. On the other hand, the offer is 40k per $100, so you will end up getting $120 after you pay the taxes, no?

I am not sure if they calculate the points on taxes too?

No points will be earned on taxes.
Technically, yes, you would pay taxes (15%) on those 80,000 points ($12) but one could argue that points could be redeemed during a bonus redemption event at Shoppers (minimum 30%) on things on special which would more than cover the taxes. :)

I’m just being pedantic but this common thought of “Oh, it’s just $100 since I get $50 worth of points” is wrong too. You are still spending the full amount (e.g. $150) plus tax at the checkout, but you get X amount of free stuff in a future purchase. I’m not ranting at your post directly but all these PCO posts are misleading in that way.

Sharp says it's HDR.

From Rting.com
Update 1/23/2018: There have been numerous reports that HDR has been enabled on HDMI ports 3 and 4 via a firmware update, though we are unable to confirm this as we no longer have this TV in our lab.

But remember that it's $200 for a 50" TV...

The linked review is for the older 7000U. The one on sale is the 7004U. There are quite a few differences between the two models, e.g. 7004U has 3 HDMI ports, HDR, full array backlight.
This is a VA panel so the picture gets washed out when viewing it from the side. However, when viewing from directly in front, the picture has quite good colours.
Note that there aren't many good apps on it. You'd be better off using a Fire Stick or something similar for your apps.

edit: BTW, if you buy this TV, you should buy another $31 worth of household goods, e.g. appliances, towels, since you'd get another $40 in points by doing that so you're effectively getting the extra items for free.

Has anybody seen left over stock somewhere in the greater Montreal area?

Versailles, Angus, Mont Royal, Parc, Jean-Talon and Avenue des Canadiens: none

They had the same deal last week at Loblaws (Ontario) and they extended one more week to this week.
Does anybody know if Provigo will do the same?
How soon will the new flyer get out? Tuesday?

Hi !
This deal was interesting.
Just a word to say I have looked this evening, since it ends today.
I have only seen some TV RCA 32" at 179.00 $,
so it would come to 139,00 $ at the end.

Also the Soda Stream machine at 70,00 $. If someone wants to combine.
Since the 40 000 points/100 $ seem to apply to any items except groceries.

It was in Quebec.
