It's on the additional 100k you have to spend for switch.
If the total cost of the switch is $400 wouldn't I be getting back 120k?

As mentioned, you only get back points when you spend real money, not points. You are only spending $100 (the other $300 is being paid for by 200,000 points plus the bonus).

No. Unless you have an special offer saying "Get X% back in points", you don't earn points on transaction made with point. So the total calculation will be 200,000 point ($300) + $100 + Tax on $400 - 30,000 ($30) in points.

Does sdm have limits on how many times you use the redemption offer? If I have 400k points. I can redeems 200k twice, correct?

I have never been able to get a straight answer from employees so maybe you guys can help out. Do you earn points when you redeem points for merchandise? Or do you only earn points on the portion you’re paying out of pocket?

There is a 20x pts deal when you spend $60 on phone app as well for Friday. Me thinks by Saturday everything of value will be cleared out.

YMMV

Maybe stack then. Redeem points and any cash you spend get 20x. Cha-ching.

Points are only earned on the what you pay out of pocket.

Its anwered literally dozens of times each and every SDM thread. It was answered in this thread before you even asked.

Its like 3 posts above yours.

As mentioned, you only get back points when you spend real money, not points. You are only spending $100 (the other $300 is being paid for by 200,000 points plus the bonus).

If 20x made everyone go clear out SDM it would have been bare last Tuesday, or last Saturday, or the Wed before, or the previous weekend, or the Thursday before that or......

edit: I see that the bonus redemption starts on Friday, so I should correct my comment that the last time you could get 20x and redemption was like six weeks ago, and six weeks before that and six weeks before that. Not as common as a full moon or 20x but still not a reason to panic buy.

Does anyone know if SDM still sells Roombas? Specifically near the Markham/Scarborough area?
I already have a Switch. The only other electronic items that I'd be interested in would be the Pro Controller and a Fitbit if they also still sell those anywhere.

I am sure there are some people somewhere who have figured out how to monetize this and have heard of some buying 10+ consoles from store after store, but around here, its not a big deal, and for the average buyer, if you miss this sale, it will be on in a few weeks again. The 20x and redemption happen at the same time frequently. A regular 20x event (if you treat points as cash) yields 120k points on $400 spend. This promo yields 130k points on $400 spend. Its only a gain of $10 in points. Again, that is if you treat points as cash. Obviously if you are trying to get rid of points this is a better deal.
