Thanks Superfigz for sharing.

I have lots of points. Thinking of getting a switch but...
Is this the correct calculations for comparing 20% off and paying with points vs paying with WEMC on a 20x points day?? Please correct any errors.
Ontario GST used for calculating
I consider points as good as cash so net cost is cash and/or points

Using points
$399.99 - 20% = $319.99 + 13% tax = $361.59
Points needed 361,590
no points earned
Net cost $361.59

Paying with WEMC on 20X points day
$399.99 x 13% tax = $451.99
Points earned
20x on $399.99 = 119,997
3% WEMC on $451.99 = 13,559
Total points 133,556
Net cost $318.44

In my eyes that’s appropriately $43 more for 20% off vs 20x day.

I am not sure if this is a right way to do comparison.

For step 1 you are redeeming your points and not spending any money.

For 2nd one you are paying $450 OOP and gets points back.
If you make comparison like that you will never reedem your points.

Whenever you redeem your points you wont earn any cashback on your credit card. Its $30 difference at the end as per your calculation.

Yeah, good luck finding a store that actually carry them. Had no luck during their 20x points day.

Yes you’re right about not earning points whenever you redeem so essentially a $30 difference if points are considered same as money. I’m just throwing that calculation out there and looking for other people’s thoughts. I consider points the same as money since I will always need groceries so they are always usable. Just thinking a big dollar purchase like a gaming system is a big points day on 20x event. I am thinking about using points for a Switch though. Would be a nice treat without any OOP cost.

Edit- I’m a veteran at PC points but a bit of a newb at Optimum. How did the redemption days work? What factor would that have compared to 20% and 20x points?? Any guesses how redemption days may work with the merge?
