New to this whole PC optimum game but wondering how long it takes for PC points to show up in your account? If I had a 20x offer for Friday could I purchase a switch for $400 (400x15%x20% = 120,000 points collected?) then go back on Saturday and pick up another switch for $400-125GC-130,000 (120,000 collected + 10,000 existing) points and only pay $75+tax for the second switch?

As someone with no points, what would be a better deal:
1. Buying the switch from SDM for 400$ and get a 125$ gift card OR
2. Buying the swtich from BestBuy for 400$ and it comes with a digital download of Mario Kart?

Option#1, Newest Switch model, can always use the GC for something you need in store.

Switch $380
Xbox One X $530

The box art for the Switch is different. Newer model has more red on the box, there's no hand holding the Switch. See the difference here:
here’s how to spot the new model in shops
Great! Thanks for the link.

Now, how do I know if there is stock at any Pharmaprix close to me? Should I camp at the ones that are open 24h? What are your strategies :P

That could be an advantage for some. I know I would much prefer the older model if I could find one...

Option 1 for sure. Newer Switch model as someone indicated, and you can buy Mario Kart (or any other game) at SDM ($79.99+ tax) and have a balance remaining on your Gift Card. Locally, I consistently see Mario Kart in stock at SDM.

Alright, I am really try to get the best bang for my buck to get a Switch + Games. Yoshi, Odyssey, BoTW and Ring Fit.

Got 119,000 points right now.

Best offer I have on my main account is 18,500 points for $75 on Friday

Tired every which way to get a 15x-20x offer, but the best deal I have gotten by refreshing an second account by joining and leaving the household is 10,000 for $50. Bad luck or am I missing something?

Some 24 hours shoppers Starts their flyer early around 9-10pm so if you want that super sale go at 12 am and see if you can pick up the electronics.
Can anyone else confirm this?

My plan is to try at a 24h Shoppers late Friday to get GC + points, then mega redemption next weekend for games. I am confidant that no SDM carries Ring Fit, butI have found several stores with the other 3 games.

If I can't get the GC deal late Friday, I will grab Yoshi or maybe Luigi's Mansion, and get Joy-Cons or a pro-controller next weekend.

Finally option would be to wait until next week and get Switch with mega redemption, and get games on sale elsewhere. Downside to that is I have nothing else to spend $200 at SDM, till the PS5 comes out, haha.

Now that begs the question, will SMD have Joy-Cons for $80, and Odyssey and BoTW for $60 like other stores?

If the mega redemption is supposed to come out for black friday, what do we think the chances are that all the Switches will be sold out thanks to the $125 GC, and none left for the mega redemption?

Best offer I have is 10,000 points for every $50 spent. I doubt anyone will find better like 15x or 20x that works this Saturday. I will be able to earn 80,000 points if I find a filler item to push it over $400
