Usually on these events a lot of the "sale" items disappear or become regular price. Great if you want to buy an expensive item that never goes on sale though. Its effectively 30% off.

I think we should just have a continuing shoppers thread, because these offers come multiple times a week as targeted and/or general offer.
Be a nice person and enjoy life

It's effectively 30% back not 30% off, you still have to spend the full amount.

Yeah but you can spend it in a proper grocery store like RCSS.

Doesn't make it cash in your pocket so its not 30% off. The money coming out of your pocket remains the same, you just get money to spend elsewhere. 30% off would make the price of the product 30% less, most people don't understand this.

Yeah, but what about the redemption events like the one that just ended last Sunday, where your 30% is multiplied by a 1.4 to 1.6 factor?

Granted, it's not 30% less out of your pocket but it's a 30% X 1.4 = 40% minimum rebate (even on specials) for something you would buy anyway like groceries for example (bread, milk, butter, etc.) at Shoppers or Loblaws.

Where else can you get an extra 40% rebate on items already marked down?

Are you arguing for the sake of arguing? You literally proved my point right here, doesn't matter what you get on a bonus day or not, that is great and all. What I was trying to say for the less informed was that you still have to spend that full amount to get 30% back. In a world where cash is king that amount you spend is what you are effectively paying not getting "off". On top of that points could be stolen out of your account, your cash in your bank account is federally insured whereas your points are not. I'm not against the PC Optimum program at Shoppers, I just want people to make educated purchases about how much they are spending not how much they'll get back.

Edit:

Also let's not talk about how we can sell what we buy with our points for cash, that is an extra step which doesn't equate to having to do nothing to get a certain dollar amount off.

What if you're not spending that full amount? I would like to think that most people like me, shop at shoppers for things that they need and when it's on sale. For me the points translates to free money, also my free money made more free money, and then that free money made more money. (that's whole another topic)

Let me put it this way then.
Would you rather spend the full amount with NO 40 % rebate?
Or WITH a 40% rebate?
You WILL spend the full amount anyway (unless you stop eating).
No need to reply, it's more of a rhetorical question.
I think we are on the same side.
Risk of theft? Really?
You can lock your account to earn only you know. :)
What about the risk of being hit by a car on your way to Shopper's to redeem your points?
Of course, if a nuclear war breaks out, YMMV.

Exactly. whole other topic. I didn't say anything about getting points back, I just said you're effectively spending that money not getting it "off". I don't know why you guys aren't understanding that.

I never said anything about getting money back, the post I replied to implied you're getting 30% off by getting 30% in points, which I proved to be untrue. Anything else is not a concern to me, I wanted to let people know that thinking that way was incorrect.
