Am I understanding it correctly that if something online shows 3435 pts that it will be ~68,000 points on the 2nd? (its an electric toothbrush for reference).

That is correct.

Regular points earned is base price * 15;
20X points is base price * 15 * 20

3435 regular points means the toothbrush base price is 229. You would earn 229*15*20 = 68,700 during 20X

It says in store but sometimes I notice they write that but it still ends up being online too. Hoping that's the case again.

If I use a World Elite Mastercard, it says I nomally get 30 points per dollar. Will the 20x event make it go to 600 points per dollar?

It seems too good to be true as this is 60% in cashback! 🤩

doesn't work like that, 20x is apply to the base point provided by Shopper for your Optimum Card, for example (using previous provided calculation) :

With a toothprice at $229. 3435 regular points (you take 229 times 15). In this event, You would earn 229*15*20 = 68,700.

In your case , you will get 30 points per dollar, plus 15x20 = 300 for a total of 330 points (Actually I need to double check if the 30 points from PC Mastercard already have the 20 points build in, if so then you will be at 310 points each dollar spent on 20x event)

Milk, eggs, butter, cheese, etc. Staples that you would buy anyways that are priced the same as at other grocery stores.

They are generally priced competitively, or close to competitively with other grocery stores. If you buy them enough, you will get personalized offers for them that stack with 20x the points. Additionally, you can save your offers if you aren't going to use them that week so that you can time everything.

For example, this week I have get back 1200 for every $6 spent on No Name Cheese. Cheese is on sale for $4.99 on Sunday. My bill will be over 50 dollars. If 25 of that is cheese, I will get back 12300k points on the cheese alone (30 percent back as 20x the points+4800 back with the app offer). That makes the net cost of the cheese $2.6, which is cheaper than anywhere else. The best common sale price for cheese in Ontario is 3.99 for a brick. Which means I am getting the cheese for a cheaper net cost than that, and harvesting Optimum points which is useful for a big purchase with bonus redemptions (But can also be used on groceries if Shoppers has bad inventory).

Stock up on toiletries when they are on sale at a competitive price.

Basically, buy things you would otherwise buy that are priced the same or better at Shoppers, in reasonable bulk, and you get the 20x the points back as what is effectively a rebate. You want to avoid buying things that you wouldn't actually buy, just to get the points. Or buying things that are overpriced where the points back doesn't justify it.

Otherwise, buying electronics or video games when they are priced the same at Shoppers as everywhere else. Like new Switch releases. Things like that which you are planning on buying anyways. You get back 30 percent in points.
I will tell my grandchildren about the deal I got on an HP Touchpad at the Bank street staples thanks to rfding.

Correct, as @soysmilkslam iterated that the regular earning rate is 15pts and afterwards it is 15x20 but correct this would be for in store purchases. Online caps at 25k pts when spending $50.

There's no reason to post this info. It's on the app. There's a 20x offer virtually every day.

Finally a $50 offer. The 20x offers I got lately were mostly in the $80 to $100 range. Wish they would bring back 10k for every $30 as I rarely spend that much at SDM
