Anyone understands how the new card works?

I have a offer for 200 pts on $1 of chips. Does this mean that if I buy $75 of chips I get 15000 pts (75*200) + 25000?

I don't see offers being store specific IE. shoppers OR Maxi

^ With old card, YES. With new card, you have to try and see.
Rule No.1 here: Buy first, Think afterwards.

Others can correct me if I am wrong but I thought those coupons only work for one single item, i.e. you buy $75 worth of chips, you still get only 200 pt + 25000

update: oh, that offer is for groceries (Loblaws, RCSS, No frills, etc.) I don't think they work with Shoppers. Shoppers have their own offers and theirs only work for a single item

I thought the whole point was that those offers are available for Shoppers as well as Loblaws, No Frills, RCSS, etc.

However, if it says exclusive to Shoppers then those offers are exclusive to shoppers.

In addition, if it says earn 200 points for every $1, then it should earn 15,000 points if they spend $75 on chips

Son-of-a-gun this is a good deal but after last week’s 15000 pts WUS $100.00 at No Frills, my list doesn’t add up to $75.00 and I’ve already bought a year’s worth of Bounty brand paper towels and the like.

Item bonuses are on top of "amount spent" bonuses. "Amount spent" bonuses do not stack, in my experience anyway

Used to be common to see "Get 18500 Optimum points for $75 spend"... which were worth $33.10 at regular 95000 points redemption.

We knew the change from Optimum to whatever would devalue the points being earned but now we have a number.

SDM's perspective was not the same as yours. Redeeming at 95k / $1.79 per k may have been regular for you, but the overall average was more like $1.50. So they probably valued the 18.5k at ~$27.75, not $33.10.

While I am also disappointed about the devaluation for those of us who always redeemed at the higher tiers, that has to be weighed against the advantages of being able to redeem smaller amounts without devaluation and being able to redeem at stores (like RCSS and No Frills) with a lowest-price-match policy.

The ideal strategy, of course, was to accumulate as many SDM Optimum points as possible prior to the conversion.

No... Have you seen the new PC Optimum app? All the offers are shared.

I have a 20x points coupon over 30 bucks at SDM...which is better over 75 bucks? Is it still 10 points for every dollar?

750*20 is 15000 points so I guess the 25000 points is better unless you're buying something over 125 bucks?

Is the 20x points deal the best deal when getting say a Nintendo Switch?

Good deal, but not much to buy according to the flyer...
Zoomer for phone + Carrytel for internet + Tangerine bank account + Stack debit card + Great Canadian rebates, ebates, drop and paymi for rebates.

No. The points are worth less than under the old system. As mentioned above, 18500 points was worth about $33 before. Now, 25K points is worth $25.

25,000 points on $75 is slightly better than 20x points (which would get you 22,500).

Remember, it's 20x points, and you now get 15 points per dollar at SDM, so a $50 purchase nets you 15,000 points worth $15.

If one was to buy a SDM gift card (say $100 or $75 if they exist?) Will the points apply? Or are gift cards exempt?

Remember, it's 20x points, and you normally get 1.5 points, so a $50 purchase nets you 15,000 points worth $15.
Ok so per the website, at SDM you get 15 points for every dollar spent now. So a 75 dollar purchase at 20x is 75*15*20 which is 22500, less than the 25000 deal offered here.

A purchase of 84 dollars or more at 20x is better so if purchase between 75-84, then do not load the 20x coupon.

In theory (and in practice, for me anyway) you can load the 20x coupon, because the Shoppers system will always use whatever available offer generates the most points. So if you bought $85, if would apply the 20x coupon, but if you bought $78, it would not.
