So annoyed with the constant flyers offers that start on Saturday. Friday leads into the weekend so I would like to get my shopping done and relax for crying out loud. I don't know when it was that SDM went to this format but I think it started permanently it seems when they stopped many stores from being 24 hrs. Anyway really freaking annoying.

i saw it at a store and its $499.99....Plus i have a 20x points offer combined with redeeming 200,000 points....will essentially make the tv cost $200...

is this a good deal?
I've upgraded my old 50" plasma to this RCA. Got 20x the points, and they gave a $100 gift card as well. Sold my old tv for $100 so my net cost was about $200 as well. Great sound quality. No Roku but I have a fire stick. I'd recommend it, especially if you're a light user like me.

I did this before while having a 20x point offer and got 20x the points on the surplus of $300 (eg. $350 earned me $50 * 15 * 20 points). I had the same situation with the Switch today and was planning to buy two games while I was there. The cashier told me this wouldn't work and to do the games on a separate purchase. She then wasn't able to give me the 20x point promo on the two games because of course the offer did work on the first purchase.

Just a lesson to anyone in a similar situation, don't let these people convince you of something that you know isn't true.
Lesson is: why would you think that you could get 20x more than once? It's clearly a one time use app offer.

Because any SDM employee told you to buy separately (unclear whether 20x would apply to both was queried to them) is hardly worthy of a PSA.

However, the good news is by posting this, I can offer an easy fix. When you next get a 20x offer, go to that Shoppers, with the games and receipts. Explain your story (you may even be smart to go when that employee is there) get them to return the games, and rebuy (btw, here you must do it as separate transactions).

Hey thanks for the reply!

The box did say it has roku built in tho.

Maybe this is a newer model?

Thanks!

I think he's saying he was able to put the switch and the games on in a previous purchase, like some time ago, and this time the cashier told him the redemption would be the first purchase, and the coupon would work on the second purchase, but the coupon auto triggered on the first one, screwing him for the second. So the cashier didn't understand how it worked.
My nick doesn't mean I'm happy any more than yours means you're a sex machine.

Theres a generic 20x offer from the flyer or sms. Can't you use that after using up the 20x app offer and scan manually?
Anyone tried?

Someone mentioned on pp. 15 that you can redeem the promo many times, but the app coupon states limit 1.

I already redeemed once and it still is on the app. Im just paranoid to redeem a 2nd time for stuff i dont need and get a clawback in points...
For redemption, you can redeem as many times as you like. I know I've done it twice during one period before.

For 20x points, it is just once.

Did not find the new Mario Game at SDMs in Thunder Bay. Guess the truck did not stop here. No special electronics added that I could see...oh wait, a bunch of laptops in the case at McIntyre Center. Nothing for me this time but after blowing $711 on that PS5 pre-order, maybe that's for the best...

Trying to figure out if I should buy something to take advantage for 200k points. These redemption events happen every now and then right?

Bought 3D all star and some other switch games, just wish I had waited a bit to buy switch from SDM instead, can easily save me over $150

I'd wager that their overwhelming amount of consumer data (collected via the optimum program) showed them that most people do their shopping on Saturdays or Sundays, so that's why they started doing it this way.
