[Shoppers Drug Mart] PS5 DualSense Controller $89.99 + 26,335 PC Optimum Points & free shipping

Hello,

After big drops yesterday from Amazon and Best buy, I guess ppl need PS5 controllers like me. I see Shoppers has controllers for 89.99 but it gives you 26,333 point as bonus. Not sure if this is a great deal but I pulled the trigger and ordered one.

This is typical. More of a shopping discussion / regular deal that happens. The Optimum program itself is how many people get discounted consoles, accessories, games, and electronics.

Is there lower price that you can mention here? I will be more than happy to revise/delete the post if anyone has better offer for the controllers. I just see down votes and it really confused me. In kijiji scalpers are selling these for $90 so I am really confused.

The downvotes are just because there isn't actually a reduced price at shoppers it's a points thing thag yes you can technically say reduced the price but it's just points. So the title and stuff needs to be updated explaining the points

Both of my dual sense are experiencing drift. One is now being repaired/replaced as we speak. When I get that one back the other one is going in. Not pleased that after only 6 months of use both are experiencing problems. When I called Sony, they were like, do you have a copy of the receipt? I was like why, considering it’s impossible for these not to be under warranty since they only came on out Nov 12??

Try the Uber grocery app with $50 off $100, controller with filler item comes out to $75 after tax delivered from Walmart. And I got two jars of Nutella!

What is Uber grocery app? In my Uber eat, I only have Rexall, Shell and PetroCanada. I don't see Walmart. Maybe it is for bigger metropolitan areas?

Dang, seems like you got the short end of the straw, both of mine are still completely fine after hundreds of hours and I've had my ps5 since launch day.

I am not actually sure but if they don't honor their warranty, then ppl have right to complain/play. But in any case, returning something instead of something else is not a good action imho.

Now you got me confused... They were selling for 50/60 in March on Kijiji. I just checked, I am only seeing 70 in most cases. OP, where are you located??

There are a few BST posts selling the controllers too, way below market price.

I am in KW area. No body is selling less than $90/$85 here. Even if they do (selling at $70), I prefer to get it from store so I have the receipts.

Makes sense then I guess. In Toronto, lots are selling for 70, with receipts upon request.

Sure, that makes sense. Just checked marketplace in Toronto and there are some ppl asking 65/70 which is good if you are in the same area.
