Easy 20k? What to buy for $60 at SDM that is not marked up so much as to negate the 20k…

My offer requires a spend of $80. Not sure I'd call it easy without overspending in the first place. And it's only 25% back in points. My 20x offer is better.

This. SDM is a waste of time.

*Except the one day a year when chocolate oranges are $2.99.

Oh, man! You are so wrong!

You should check it out. By playing the game right, over the last 2 1/2 years, I have saved hundreds of dollars on my every day grocery shopping. Maybe close to $1k.

Why do you think there is so much following on RFD of the PC Optimum program with so many threads and so many posts?

Whatever groceries are on sale. Ice cream. Coffee. Milk. Eggs. Butter. They often have the PC 300g chocolate bars for $3.99. 6 pack 710 ml pop are always super cheap on weekends. etc.

Clearance electronics can be very good too but they're a big YMMV.

Their typical drug store stuff is somewhat expensive, but their grocery prices are mostly good.

I do really appreciate having a smaller store where I can buy butter or some dried pasta without having to go to a gigantic grocery store.

Whatever groceries are on sale.

Contrary to popular belief, sale prices at SDM are decent. They routinely beat large grocery store prices.

Which makes sense when you consider they are supplied from the exact same warehouse Loblaws is supplying the superstore from.

You only buy what you need when it's on sale at a similar price to elsewhere when there's a 20 X the points event (30% back in points) and then you redeem your points when there's a bonus redemption event (minimum 30% bonus on your points) for a net of at least a 39% discount on things you need that are already on special. Or you redeem your points without a bonus at a deep discount place like No Frills or Maxi in Québec.

The PC Optimum program is the best reward program in Canada bar none.

3 years ago, I thought points program were stupid: "yeah, rewards program are 3-4% max Pfff!". Boy, was I wrong. A cashier told me about the events and I finally jumped in. Too bad he doesn't work anymore where I shop because I would have thank him when I refunded 250,000 points for a $400 rebate 2 Black Fridays ago on a Nintendo Switch Mario Kart bundle and some fillers or every time I refund 50,000 points for a $65 rebate.

Get a free card and start reading the PC Optimum/Pharmaprix/No Frills, etc. threads. In no time you'll figure it out and will become a savvy PCO member.

Has anyone even seen Captain Toad for Nintendo Switch at a Shoppers. They carry most Nintendo-made games, but I haven't come across that one anywhere.

Not easy, you need to spend $60+ lol
this offer is just like the regular 25K pts for $75, or 20x WUS $50, basically you get 5000 pts per $15 spend

It is not difficult... wait until a bonus redemption period, buy groceries that are on sale that you need.

Or, use them for items that never go on sale anywhere, like Nintendo Switch or Switch games.

I got the 20k bonus points spend $60. couple months ago had the same offer so bought some grocery items that were on sale was not too painless and pricing was okay. This time around though not as good as not great items on sale that i need so buying over priced stuff dont make as much sense.
