[Shoppers Drug Mart] Bonus redemption cupom 80.000 points -> 120$ 50%, Oct 9th only [YMMV]

I just noticed I got this incredible offer in my PC Optimum account today (I'm also a Insiders member if that may influence anything). I hope most people get this.
It's valid just for tomorrow, 9 oct.

Good but not incredible.

40% points back is typically better. More flexibility in redemption and better numerical value.

Downside of 40% points back is that you need more points to start with though.

For example, with the 40% points back promo, you could redeem 120k points for $120, with an instant points rebate of 48k, meaning a net spend of 72k points for $120 off.

It's perfect for me who needs to buy baby formula. Smiling Face With Open Mouth
Its awesome for buying cheaper items, up to 120$. Expensive tech will not benefit as much, indeed.

How do you get 40%? I thought it was only 30% with the x20 and also it excludes taxes Pensive Face
OP's offer is great imo.

It happens from time to time, but it's also targeted (like OP's offer).

Most recent one I bought a Sharp 43" 4K TV for 180k points (+ $39 ON Tax) in Aug 2019. Can't seem to find the RFD thread though.

I’m always surprised at how people even collect this many points to begin with. There’s barely anything reasonably priced at SDM. The only thing I can think of is milk, bread, butter, eggs, but even then I don’t usually get the no name brand of butter and eggs, and the milk at SDM has a short expiration date (at least at my local SDMs), so I usually don’t bother with any groceries. The only way I add up points is when I get perfume as gifts for family or certain skincare/makeup (definitely not a product junkie).

There's a ton of other products that people may get. Make up, cologne and perfumes, video games, electronics, and chocolates.

There is the electronics. I can see myself getting Switch games for my kids in the future.

We collect points any time we shop for groceries at zehrs and typically hit $100 in points every couple months. Also, with the PC world elite MC, we get tons of points for any purchase made on the card, as well as points back on every dollar paid off on the card. It adds up VERY quickly. My wife redeemed about $120 in points back in the second week of Sept and we're already back up to almost $80 in points.

Previously, when it was just Shoppers Optimum, I felt the same way you did. But once combined with PC points, we easily accumulate points now from buying groceries at any of Loblaws, No Frills, RCSS, YIG, etc.
That, and maximizing bonus point offers through the PC points app and stores' weekly flyers.

You’re right, I have noticed this too with my PC M/C.

I'm so confused and surprised by getting points for purchasing on it and then ALSO getting points for paying off that purchase... it makes zero sense but I hope it stays that way!

Thanks OP! I have this as an offer but not sure how to use it. Do I just buy $120 worth of products and pay with optimum points when asked? Then it'll automatically deduct 80k points? TIA

I completely agree! The points just randomly keep getting added (I’m sure it’s not random). But it’s fun to watch lol.
