Just apply the discount on the far right column to any purchase. However, for the redemption discounts with fixed amounts (like 200k = \$300) the discount would change slightly depending on the price of the item i.e. the portion above \$300 which is not receiving a discount. For everything else, it's a real discount for all products in Shopper's.

if I understand correctly
I pay for the ps4 , 379.99 plus taxes - 150.00 in pco points = 229. plus taxes on 229+34.49=263 and I get back 60000 points.
there are taxes even on discounts?

You always pay taxes on full amount when you are redeeming PCO points.
Your total cost would be: 380 * 1.13 = \$429.40 -\$150 PCO = \$279.40 total cash outlay.
Your discount comes from 40% back on the 150k, which is 60k points.
Your net cost is 429.40 - 60 = \$369.40.
I back out the taxes so you can easily compare \$379.99 MSRP to \$326.90, equals a discount of -14%.

The redemption discounts in my Excel sheet assumes you have enough points to redeem for the full amount.

I have over 400k points, so the offer might trigger in the app if you have a certain amount of pts like 100k+. Just guessing here.

I guess its only a better discount if you got the 400k points.

Should put YMMV since this is a targetted offer. Thanks OP.

40% pts back is the 2nd cheapest to buy a Switch.

Last promo was the cheapest.

1) Buy \$25 SDM GC get \$5 Lotto GC
2) combine with 20% FF discount + 20x pts.
