Thanks OP. Right now there is the bonus redemption so I used 200,000 points to get $300 off.

Thanks a lot for the heads up dude. They have a 200k points for $300 event right now so I was able to redeem points to pay for 2/3 of the total cost (with tax) of the Switch!

Get "up too" $300. How do they determine the amount?

I think you're purchase (before taxes) needs to be over $300 to get the full benefit. Eg. If you redeem 200K points on a $260 order, you'll get $260 covered by points.

When you go to pay for the item, there is a drop down box where you can choose how many points you want to redeem. If you have 200,000 points, you can get $300, If you use more points, say 240,000, you get still only get the 100,000 or $100 bonus or $340 - so the sweet spot is 200,000 points to get $300. Of course, if you have the points but you don't have $300 worth in your cart, you won't get the max 100,000 points bonus. This is all pre tax. I had to pay $399.99 + tax less $300. In BC that is $147.99.

Does any Shoppers anywhere have the original non-Animal Crossing versions available? I want the Switch but can’t bring myself to buy that ugly version:/

I prefer the black version as well. So much that I'm waiting instead of buying this ugly thing.. Well, it's ugly for me... It's cool if other people like it :)

I beg to differ, :-) but beauty in the eye of the beholder.

Why can we only redeem a max of $390 in points against the switch?
I have a $950 balance...

Increments of $10, pre tax. So max $390 in points for a $399 item.

Maybe I'm alone in this but I can't believe this doesn't come with the game. I'm sure it's a great product but man is Nintendo stingy with bundling games. I guess when they sell like hot cakes you can get away with it.

That being said it's nice to see stock starting to pile up a bit on these switches.

If I make two separate orders using the "redeem 200K points to get a bonus $100", does that mean I will get $200 added back in points?

I redeemed 390K points on the first order, then another 390K points on the second order. Was there a better way to go about this?

Wasn't Switch $379? When did the price go up to $399?

its convenient when you combine it with the bonus redemption. Although you miss out on the 20x the points (on the remaining total), which is what I did instore on the weekend (on the regular version).
Boom Boom Pow!
