OP should state online and regular price.

I think a lot of people were betting on a miracle PS5 restock for boxing day but doesn't look like that happened.

Also, some people should have 20x points for instore (for provinces that still are open) making it about 120,000 in points if my math is right.

How many points per dollar spent? So if I spend $75 in store, how much is 20X the points?

15 points per dollar is the regular rate so should be about 22-23.

Someone did the math earlier and stated if you're spending $125-150 I think it was, better to do the online for 45,000 points.

I have seen lots of Switch stock everywhere now, Walmart, Bestbuy, Toys, so the switch isn't very hot anymore.

"To determine your points, the equation is: (dollars spent before taxes) x (15 for base points) x (the specific offer). The other is a set amount of bonus points with your purchase (for example, receive 20,000 bonus points when you spend $50)."

if you buys a switch in store, $399.99*15*20=119,997pts = $120 (to be spend later)

I know this console is $399 in stock everywhere now. But at least you could get a bit cheaper with points and CB. RFD spirits! Happy shopping boxing day!

Or put another way, it's exactly 30% 400 *.3 = 120$

They do, during black Friday. Try calling the ones around you to check if they have it.

OP, you might wanna edit your original post to mention cashback is not applicable.

Anyone else had issues with Shoppers online and their payment processor? I have tried like 7 credit cards and they all get declined. And its not the first time it has happened on this site either.

Thanks checked on the app it's in store only which is bad, but I guess will be hard to find one in store.

Most likely price drop next year if we have lots of inventory. Switch should be like $250 or maybe $300. No way paying $400 when next gen consoles are here.
