50,000 points = $65 off ($15 extra = 30% bonus)
100,000 points = $140 off ($40 extra = 40% bonus)
200,000 points = $300 off ($100 extra = 50% bonus)

They are serious about their points program when you consider that 20X the basic points (30%) is often available to collect on everyday items that are already heavily discounted.

Even a mere 50,000 points will get you an extra 30% at redemption time for a total return of 39% on things that you would buy anyway!

That seems unsustainable, enjoy while it lasts.

I used to be skeptical. After all, it's well known that those points/miles program are only worth 1% - 1.5%. But now I'm sold. The bonuses are what makes it worthwhile.

If you are not already a participant, take the time to figure how it works and what you are missing.

Here is an example from this week:

Liquid Tide, 1,09 L. on special @ $3.99

Regular points (15 points per complete dollar) are 3 dollars X 15 points = 45 points

But there was a 20X the points event Sunday and Monday so instead of 45 points you could get 900 points.

900 points are worth $0.90 when redeeming at the regular rate: 10,000 points = $10

But if you wait for a bonus Redemption event (minimum 30% bonus) that $0.90 becomes $1.17 so your Tide bottle net cost is $2.82 not too shabby.

It's even better than that because points are calculated on your total pre-tax amount spent so odds are you would buy $40 - $50 minimum at a time to get points on the full $3.99 and not just on 3 full dollars. That brings the cost down of said Tide bottle from an already discounted sale price of $3.99 further down to $2.43! 39% OFF!

Also, you can collect points not only at shoppers (Pharmaprix) but also at Loblaws, Provigo, Maxi, Esso, Mobil, No Frills, Real Canadian Superstore, etc.

What have you got to lose? It's Free.

They've been doing this every few weeks for a long time now. Loblaws has very deep pockets.

What we want to see is redeem 300k for $450. That’s the hot deal we are hoping for.

Debating on getting a switch or waiting and buying one at 20x the points.

Sitting at 700,000pts now

Happy I live near several SDM stores that carry pretty much all of the electronics (while the other 2 don't have an electronics section at all)

Haha...pretty interesting fellow indeed...but it was this persistence/stubbornness of his that got him the positive result in the end.

... Although, I'm a little surprised you went against what everyone advised ,op. You've got balls and absolutely crazy at the same time to do this.

Thanks OP for updating the title.
