Shoppers optimum coupon overlap?

I had several coupons load onto to Optimum account today (many more than usual). Some appear to overlap, as follows:

- 500 points for Country Harvest Bread/Bagels (June 10 expiry)
- 700 points for Country Harvest Bread/Bagels (June 10 expiry)
- 20x points when spend $50 or more (June 11-12)
- 20x points when spend $30 or more (June 11-12)

Do you think either of these pairs will double up?

Last time I had overlapping offers (A 2k points on $10 food and snacks and a 3k on anything $10) I just got the higher point offer when making a purchase that should have qualified for both, so I think they just give you the higher offer of the two.

The system is kinda bs because when I had $20 on food and snacks bonus and then say 2k for chocolate or something it won't stack

I also had a similar overlap of offers.

The system gave me the higher point offer as Chew300ZX mentioned above BUT it also redeemed the lower point offer w/o giving the points.

Depending on how much you are willing to spend, I would recommend removing the lower offers, redeem the higher offers, re-add lower offers and redeem again on a separate transaction.

A couple weeks ago I had:

-bonus points for nuts
-bonus points for frozen entrees
-bonus points for a minimum spend

Bought nuts, frozen entrees, and a filler to hit the required amount and got points for all the items.
