Nope - That would do it.... Will look into it - may be worth signing up.

Still a great deal at 40$ without the PC insider.
I'd recommend just signing up for the first month free. I doubt there'll be another deal as hot as this for awhile.

Everyone is jumping in and purchasing the smaller boxes of diapers at $24.98 so that you can get the 5K points offer but isn't it a better deal if you get the $32.75 box as it'll cost less per diaper?

example: size 2 pampers swaddlers:
smaller box: 84 count = $24.98 per box - 5K points ($5) = $19.98 = 23.78c
larger box: 156 count = $32.75 = 20.8c / diaper

This is not factoring in coupons (which not all of us have)
No, you lose out on essentially $20 worth of points doing it this way.

You are missing out on the additional bonus points people are getting on this deal. Each box of the smaller box of diapers comes out to $2 a box ($88 after tax plus 80600 PC points) ... If you get the larger boxes, you don't get as much PC points back which is the whole point of the smaller box combo.

Example size 2 swaddlers (without manufacturer coupon)

4 X small box = 336 diapers (total cost without the manufacturers coupon is $108 after tax - 80600 pc points = $27.40) Take the 336 / $27.40 you get $0.0815 per diaper

3 x big box = 372 diapers (total cost without manufacturers coupon is $106 after tax - 60200 pc points = $45.80) Take 372 / $45.80 you get $0.1231 per diaper

With COUPON

336 diapers / $7.40 = $0.022 per diaper

372 diapers / $25.80 = $0.069 per diaper
Ok thanks. I see what I did wrong on my calculation. I need to look at the purchase holistically and not at each individual box

Aside from the OP, the MVP of this thread is you. Thank you sir.

Yes they have them. They are also on sale, I saw one box and I believe it was $7 off but yes they are very expensive.

I think i figured out why I didn’t get the extra 20k points. If you read the fine print at the bottom of all the promos it says after all applicable coupons. So think by using the $10 coupons x2 for each transaction it is dropping the price to below the $100 (even with the original sensitive wipes) which cancels out one of the points promos. This is my guess.

That said, At checkout when the system was only giving me 60k points, I added another $25 box (5 total) to put it over the $100 total again to see what would happen, and I only got another 10k points so 70k total. No idea how that worked. I stuck with the 4 boxes in the end.

Curious what location you bought from, maybe their system is setup incorrectly?

Edit: So I tried doing it online and the same 60,000 points shows up without even applying the $10 coupons since you can't online... so scratch that theory. No idea why some people are getting the 80k and others like me the 60k.

This deal is in the East, you guys had this deal on the flyer that just ended.

Coupons are given to clerk when you pick up your order, and you don’t pay when placing order, you pay when you pick up. You can charge order to credit card on file or pay with a different method.
Oh crap.. Thanks for the info!

So i ordered last night and it was around 11:55pm ish when I checked out. I viewed my order and played with the quantity of diapers, my original order of 4 boxes turned to 6 with a total of $180ish and 60k points bec apparently the cutoff to make changes was 11:59pm. Ugh

Anyone got charged for canceling an order?

Nope, no charge for cancelling order. If you don't show up at your pick up time, eventually they put the order back.
