Thread Summary
Please Note: This is a discussion post. The discussion started before and during details of the new PC Optimum program were revealed and therefore, many of the posts, especially early on, have incorrect information.

Please familiarize yourself with the program via the link in the first post and check the last page of this thread for the latest discussion (and most accurate information).

On February 1st, 2018, your Shoppers Optimum points will be converted into the new, PC Optimum program, at the full amount they were worth at Shoppers Drug Mart. Please use the conversion tool (on the website).

That card said they'll be transferred at full value... Too vague. Dollar for dollar or point for point?

There were rumours about this the past week. Thanks for posting OP.

There are more questions then answers right now obviously, but I'm sure these will soon be answered.

There’s no way it goes down like that. Especially when they say “full value”. I. The shoppers app it has your “point balance” and “point value”. It will be an easy conversion.

The point of this is to drive sales at superstore not to piss people off.

From the brochure, looks like information to launch tomorrow (11/08/2017). From a CRM perspective, it makes a lot of sense, that data they will gather from the Loblaw banners and Shoppers will be far superior then maintaining two systems. Hopefully the value remains on par or greater then what exists now.

the only worse "points" program than PC I could think of is airmiles. I have tons of SDM points, hope there are enough chances or things worthy redeem before Feb 1, 2018.

I have $580 worth of SDM points, would welcome the change if it became $580 worth of PC points.

what's wrong with PC points?

I always stack with PC plus and get tons of points on my groceries.
