[Shoppers Drug Mart] Redeem 50k for $65, get 40k back on min 125 spend

Yikes sorry for the confusing post y'all.

I was able to redeem 50k points for $65. Because I spent at least 125 after redemption I got 40k points back.

So a $200 item came in at $135 and cost 10k points net.

Again, sorry for the misleading post.

Title sounds like you redeem 10k points and you get $65 in value.

Yes, I want to use 10K points to save $65 but I'm at a complete loss on how to do that. 🤣

Edit: now that I have figured it out, it is a pretty nice deal.

Net out to only using 10K in points and save $65 between the two offers.

I think OP did this:
Item was $200

He redeemed 50k points to get $65 off
Then he redeemed another 10K to get $10 off, bringing total to $125
Then he stacked it with the $125 offer to get 40K points back.

So really, he paid $125 + 60k points + Taxes (on $65) to get a $200 item + 40k points

Ignoring taxes from calculation, net cost on the $200 item is ~$145.

Can you explain how did you do that?

I only able to use my current points at the payment step.

Then technically he spent 20k.

50k+10k - 40k = 20k

I think he only spent 50k (200-65 = $135)

This thread is terribly confusing.

It almost feels like a poorly worded test question as well.

I think you redeem 50K of your points to buy something valued more than $125 and they give you 40K of points back for that.

oh wait, I am confused now.

I think this person saved $65 by buying that Kobo. Sooooooo. nvm idk anymore

Spend over 190$ online and redeem 50k points to save 65$ and obtain 40k point back.

That should be more clear on wt* is going on.

Should be 190$ because usually redeeming points don't count to the total spend cost for the other promo, so 125+65= $190.

So if I understand this correctly you have to buy something that's worth $190 (125 +65) and pay with 50k points to get $65 off and rest $125 in cash to get 40k points back.

So you spend $125 + 10k points to get an item worth $190?

Yes

or

spend $125 cash (plus taxes on full amount) , use 60k points (100-40k) = get $265 items worth

Spend $125 cash (plus taxes on full amount), use 160k points (200-40k) = get $425 items worth
