Also known as 16 2/3% off. Buy $50 get $10 in points is the same as $10 off $60; divide 10 by 60 and multiply by 100 to get the true percentage of savings.

Meanwhile, you can get 15% off immediately at checkout (not in points--no need to buy $10 worth of extra stuff to take advantage of it) on a selection of gift cards at Rexall, and you don't need to spend $50. Can be any amount.

Nice marketing gimmick though. Tricks those not up on their math.

Shoppers is still better especially if someone is into collecting points. 15% off is only $7.50 off. 10K points is $10 which can easily be used the next time or whenever I shop for groceries.

You save $7.50 shopping at Rexall and $10 at Shoppers. $10 can be $15 if used in bonus redemption events for 200000 points to get $300 off.

Shoppers is better because of their pc points program.
Op, I'm guessing you can earn 20x points if you buy gift cards with the current promo hat's active?

Keep your receipt. I had quite the ordeal with the olg one. Points usually take awhile to get and if you forget or don't check you will miss out on your 10k.

Keep the receipt. (and deal offer)

This worked out great for my lotto pool last time.

I only received a 6 page flyer. Does anyone have an image of the sale?

EDIT: Found it online and you can zoom in for the fine print of necessary.

2-4 weeks for points to be awarded.

Another question. Does anyone know where we can redeem them (OLG gift cards). Only the gas stations and convenience stores seem to be open for lotto.

I think the kiosks are all closed. Do gas stations and convenience stores accept these cards? (I know that Shoppers Ironically doesn't)

It is quite a production to buy these in $50 increments and redeem each $50 voucher when making large lotto purchases but the bonus points are worth it (especially at bonus redemption time).

I can't verify if 7/11 takes the OLG gift cards but I can't see why they wouldn't. I've been successful buying my lottery tickets from them so far during the pandemic.

I think these OLG cards should be redeemable at any retailer. I bought many cards back in December for my lottery pool. The problem is that a lot of retailers don't know how to use these cards. They have to scratch off the sticker on the back of the card and use the code. They should also read the instructions that OLG give them.

Too bad my local store closed for 3 months. It took a couple of tries because he eventually figured out how to use these cards.

Does anyone know if you can use the OLG gift cards online? Through the OLG lotto website?

To your point, just received my 15,000 bonus pts from getting a gift card back in January. I'm on the phone now and asked her when I could expect to see the 10,000 points for this promotion. She can't even find the promotion and then said Joeys cards weren't included... WTF! So yes, keep your receipt, and expect having to call them for any of these gift card promotional points. Good luck!

yikes. and you are exactly the people that he mentioned that gets tricked by it. in the end, the points are better if you shop at shoppers often but your math is wrong. 7.5 off at 50 = you only spend a total of 42.5 for a value of $50. whereas to get 10, you spend a total of 50. which means your bases are wrong. at rexall, you'd actually buy a $58.82 gift card at the price of $50. so the difference is actually only 8.82 vs 10k points. but as you said, if you can get the redemption bonus of 15, that's significantly better. assuming you like points and the redemption events. otherwise, you only lose a value of 1.18 per 50 dollars you spend, but you get to keep it in cash which is much more flexible.

Seeing how as the OLG gift cards are only offered on sale at Shoppers your math is irrelevant to me.. but thanks for indicating otherwise, if i was interested in the ones that were on sale at Rexall I'd be interested..
