recordman wrote: I'm pretty sure it's 4x$1.25 - $1 (1k pts) = $4. This is $1 each. I have a personal offer for KD as well (400p for $2), but I'm not in ON. With such a double stacking, they can be had for 80c each. Check your personal offers.

Confirmed this morning that the deal is working. Bought 6 boxes at $1.25 each and got 6,000PC points.

Gosh... IT seems like Corporate has really be screwing up a lot more lately. I've been seeing so many "error"/"it can't be that price/offer" coming up in the past few months...

Well... If that stays for the KD, I may buy a few cases for the food bank (I'll have to talk to the grocery manager so he can place a hand order of it), combine with 10% staff and it makes it $0.12/box. I think they are okay on KD right now, but for that price, it doesn't hurt to grab it.

And it was $7.77 a few weeks ago at Walmart, with a coupon
https://forums.redflagdeals.com/walmart ... n-2559839/
$7.77 / 12 = $0.64 cents/box (which is still very good).

VS

$1.25/ box + 1000 PC Points = $0.25 cents/box.

You can technically redeem your PC points in the same visit if you do 2 transactions.

Example: buy 10 boxes of KD at $1.25 each = you'll get $12.50 + 10,000 PC points.

2nd transaction: buy $10 worth of other groceries and redeem 10,000 points for $10 off your grocery order.

However a lot of people like to redeem at SDM for points redemption events where you get more value for your points.

End of the day: if you do your grocery shopping at Loblaws chain stores points is on the same level as cash.

Im thinking of buying 20 (individually wrapped) broccoli crowns as it is a monkey maker from no frills to donate to the food bank. Its healthier than KD and it doesn't hurt to claim small change from Galen for my good deeds.

That being said, I don't want to clear shelves by buying excess when families need it too.

Yeah, I know the KD isn't the best option for the food bank, but I know my food bank gets a ton of produce in daily. So I want to try to get them more of the non-perishable items that they might not get in all the time. I know KD is commonly donated, but for the price, I figured why not.

This is my logic:

1. I have to eat, so I need to purchase items at a supermarket or other place for food;
2. At RCSS, on one receipt I purchase 10 boxes of KD for $12.50, submit PC Optimum card, receive 10,000 PC Optimum Points;
3. On another receipt, I purchase $10 or more worth of items at RCSS, then submit my PC Optimum card again for points payout;
4. My second receipt will show that I paid $10 less for my purchase.

Works for me...

Exactly. That is the right way of thinking about it.

But when someone buys 10 boxes and thinks "they were only 25 cents each, " they are not being fair to themselves.

Again, it depends on how they view the points when they use them. If they think of the points as money spent when they use them then there is no problem with what you described. The points have to be considered value at one of the two stages earning or spending. There isn't just one "right" way to do it. It's just wrong if you consider it as value during both stages.

For me, I consider points earned as money saved. So if I spend $50 and get back 50 000 points I consider that a "free" purchase. When I then spend those 50 000 points I consider it $50 spent (and not free). So I'm not 'not being fair to myself' because I consider points earned as money saved.

... although, you and I are in western provinces, and this promo isn't available here!

This week, at western RCSS, the sale is KD for $9.77/cs of 12 (no PCO pts rewarded) or $1.25/bx when you buy in groups of 4 (otherwise $1.79/bx), with no PCO pts rewarded. Annoyingly, if you buy 7 boxes (for example), you'd pay $1.25 for the first 4, and $1.79 for the next 3, unlike in the east where it's $1.25/bx when you buy 4 or more.

I just bought 8 boxes in Ontario (London), and zero PC points were awarded. Customer service was good about giving me the 8000 points when I showed the flyer and my receipt, but I wonder if this means that the deal is in the process of being corrected....

Definitely YMMV, no points initially awarded at the Superstore in Kanata on my purchase of 10 boxes. Went to CS desk showed the ad, she apologized and told me all they would credit in points is 1000. Said no way it is 1000/ box.

Do a points inquiry with PC Optimum and you should get your remaining points.

If there was no correction notice the store (customer service) should of gave you the full amount of points.

Don't let the dinner part in KD fool you. I consider this quick comfort food. Nothing More, Nothing Less.

We all know home-made country style Mac & Cheese is awesome (I make it too), but it's hardly instant.

10% off is cold, 50% off is warm, 75% off is hot, but FREE IS RFD!
