Shoppers near Lawrence and Dufferin had a decent selection of electronics a month or so ago. You could give them a call to check. Also, other stores have some of the more expensive electronics in the back so although it might seem like they don't carry some items, it never hurts to ask.

You would get points on whatever portion that is left that you pay for with real money. Ie switch is 399, so after redeeming 200k for $300, you would get points on the remainder of $99. There is 20x today (via the app, may be used specific, but i believe everyone got this offer) and it ends tomorrow
Are you sure it's still like this? I did do what you say last year when I bought switch (first $300 with 200k, then 20x on final $80).
But the reason I ask, I'm pretty sure my 20x from yesterday said "only available on purchase where you don't redeem any points" or so. I can't look/screenshot now, as I used the 20x offer already (used it on Mario 3d All Stars).
But I noticed that, and figured that's their new policy.
Was hoping to get lucky and use redemption bonus plus 20x on remaining when the ps5 is out :).

I am at the store on young North of Lawrence and asked about the switch for you. He said they have at least 1. It is Sunday at 4:00 p.m. I am here at the store. You can either visit or call.

So I get 45pts/$1 spent using my PC World Elite Mastercard. With the 20x points bonus right now, I would get 89k points on the balance of the Switch? Essentially I am paying $99+tax and 111k points to get the Switch?

No, only the base 15 points per dollar is multiplied by 20x. The WE card simply gives an extra 30 points per dollar, for a total of 45 points per dollar at Shoppers on a normal purchase.

So you would get 29700 points from the purchase plus 2970 points from your credit card.

Also, the tax would be on the full purchase price ($399) even if you redeem points.

Thanks.

So it's more like paying $399 + $51.87 (MB tax) - $300 = $150.87
And 200k - 32.67k = 167330 points

Too bad they they're not selling the Tab S5e as it's a much better tablet from my research than the S6 lite.

This is the new wording they added to the 20x offers: "Not valid on any portion of your purchase paid for with PC Optimum points.". Meaning you don't earn points on the portion where you're redeeming points, only the cash/paying portion.

This is no different than the way it's always been, they've just added the wording to make it crystal clear...

Excellent thanks. I just saw it quickly as I was about to pay. I guess I didn't read it too clearly.

I just noticed on the PC optimum app that I earned 29,700 points as well so this was a super hot deal!

You might want to do more research. They are 2 different tablets and 2 different usage. Both are affordable devices but they Excel at different things.
