Does anyone know what the points would be on a Switch tomorrow vs the 20% off today?

Thank You!
As others have mentioned you won’t get 40X the points because of this; multipliers don’t stack.

So in the spreadsheet you’re comparing 20% off to 20X the points. Goes as follows:

\$379 is the reg price.

\$379(0.8)(1.13) = \$303.2(1.13) = \$342.62 = cost on 20% off day
You’ll get base points only so 15(303) = 4545 pts back.

On 20X days
\$379(1.13) = \$428.27 = cost on 20X day
20X the points so 15(20)(379) = 113700 pts back.

So even if you don’t use the points back to their maximum value you’re still getting a better deal on 20X the points day as long as you plan on using your points.

For example you could use the points you got back on a redemption day to get \$140 worth of switch accessories and games for 100K pts

20X is the same as 30% off pre-tax price. Just remember that and it's easy to compare shoppers deals. Two different multipliers don't stack.
Be a nice person and enjoy life

One used to be able to sign up for a new Optimum/PC Plus account and get an instant 20x points coupon. Now that doesn't happen anymore? I'm going to try one more time.

I wish I had a 15x or 20x coupon to stack.

Since I DO have the 20X loaded on my phone, that would be a better deal to buy the PSVR EXCEPT all the units at SDM are sans games. So, up front \$430 roughly and 113700 points to be used on another day to get games and accessories (if they have any) vs. BB with the bundle at \$279 + tax and 2 games. Decisions, decisions...

Anyone able to get the 15x coupon from the joining/leaving household method today? I have a feeling they removed that coupon for today.
