I was hoping to get that offer soon to buy a few expensive items, but unfortunately, I don’t have it. :( Thank you anyway for pointing it out for us to check and make sure we don’t miss it!

I had a 30% but it was yesterday, too lazy to work out if it is better than the usual bonus redemption days.
Plus I still cannot find anywhere nearby me that has PS5 in stock, at this rate I might hit the lottery sooner.

Went to my offers because of this post and found a 5,000 points for any purchase in store at Sdm offer

Seems like they want me to go back in store

If you are a President's Choice Optimum (PCO) member, you are supposed to check your offers everyday. This is a targeted offer. It's pointless to open a thread in the Hot Deals forum every time someone gets one because not every one get the same offers at the same time. It's like if I would open a thread everyday in the Hot Deals forum saying "Go check your PCO offers".

PCO Shopper's Drug Mart offers appear in your account the day before. So if you don't want to check your offers every day, check at least on Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday which are the most likely days you could get one.

On the other days, it's unlikely that you would get an offer because there are other promotions going on like the Tuesday SMS message offer, the Thursday Seniors Day or on the weekends (Friday + Saturday + Sunday) it's either a 20X the points event or a bonus redemption event.

Or, and hear me out here, you could read the thread title, and with your seemingly vast understanding not click the thread and write a diatribe.

There are lots who appreciate these threads.

Why? They are of no real use to anyone, you can't use this offer only the OP can. If this type of thread becomes really popular the real deals people can actually get will get buried it a sea of personal offer threads constantly being bumped to the top by people replying with the offer they got or the fact that they didn't get the offer in the OP.

This post made me check my app when I normally wouldn't and look at that I have the same offer OP did. The thread was useful for me

I think they’re useful because they can remind you to check your offers when you might otherwise have not. I don’t check my offers every day.

But "we" check RFD everyday... personal responsibility no? I'm not arguing just saying its not a hot deal and should not be in this forum, maybe in the general, I'm not going to down vote but def not going to up vote

This like saying I did a "number 2" and wiped afterwords and saw a corn kernel (YMMV)

Had this 40% offer on Monday. Usually, there's a 500,000 pts limit on redemption ($500), but didn't see that in the small print this time.

To summarize the 40% vs Bonus Redemption: the 40% is a better offer IF you have the points sitting around. For $300 worth of stuff you get 120k points back (so net 180k points spent). On Bonus Redemption it's 200k points spent.

Too bad you don't check your offers everyday (or at least on the days I described above) because you get the 40% back in points offer in your account quite frequently but you don't see it. It only lasts 24 hours then it disappears from your account. Imagine how many times you lost the opportunity to redeem your points at the best bonus possible. Sad. :-(

I'll make sure to open a new thread tomorrow in the Hod Deals forum to remind you to go check your PCO offers in case you forget. :)

This is subjective though. 95% of the deals I see under Hot Deals I actually can't or won't get and they contribute to forcing deals I do want to get buried. The forum has filters, sort and search functions to help people sift through the deals that apply to them.

For me personally, this post appeals every time because I don't check my PCO offers every day. Therefore I clicked the thread to read on. The deals on breast pumps I can't use, so I don't click on them.
