    So if you got 20x when you spent $50 it should be around $15 and on the receipt. I was told Shoppers will take whatever offer is better and give you that so maybe you got all of the app offers but not the 20x offer because they amounted to more. The in store bonus points would be something that had points attached in store .. so maybe you missed an instore advertised deal ? Not sure.
    I’m off to shoppers.. let’s see what weirdness my receipt shows.

    So, I just did the Shoppers offers - 10000 on $25 in Easter candy and the 20X when you spend $50.

    It stacks - sort of. You will get the 10000 points for the $25 in Easter candy. They will then give you the 20X points on the rest of your purchase. So, you only earn 20X on the amount over $25. Still a great return for me - 17425 points on a $50.70 spend (almost 35%).

    Soooo just to make this all as clear as mud... I just spent $56.93, I had the Easter candy offer and a 20x milk offer. Neither one posted. I just got the 20x the points in store promo ( 15600).
    The cashier even said they would combine AND my milk offer always combines on 20x the points days:rolleyes:. So I submitted an inquiry.

    So I did the 20x event twice.

    Once for my usual groceries, plus my Clinique toner $51.51 = 15,300 pts.

    Then I did my Hawaiian Tropics offer and added some body lotion and scrub for $73.92 = 13,200 (HT) + 20,805 (20x) = 35,100 total.

    Then I did superstore for $104.51 = 14,800 pts, so not a bad haul today.

    Let us know when you hear. I usually have a response within 10 or 15 minutes. I'm still waiting for a reply from my inquiries this morning. Maybe they are having a lot of inquiries today with people being confused on what the offers are.

    I'm happy with my return as well. 24702 points on a $55.70 spend so about 44%. What's not to love??

    I ended up going to Shoppers an hour ago. Since I had enough to meet the Spend $50 get 20X offer I decided to split my purchases into two.

    First: Spend $25 on Easter chocolate/candy and I received 15,390 points. (10,000 for easter plus and 4,000 for Every $3 in Cadbury chocolate got xx points - I forgot how many and 1,000 in-store)
    Second: Spend $50 get 20X = 15,000 pts (milk, 2 eggs, ketcup, 2 small aveeno hand cream, inserts for my shoes and pillsbury pizza pops)

    So 30,390 points on $75

    I also went back to Loblaws today to get my husband a PC Optimum card. I did the Cashmere toilet paper, scotties tissue and spongetowels with the $6 off coupon. $11.97 and 9,000 points.

    Customer Service was really puzzled where everyone was getting these coupons! :goodvibes The lady I spoke with said the Manager was trying to figure out if the coupons were real or not so I showed her the RCL flyer and the contest link.

    Quick question: Can you do the pepsi offer $20 get 6000 pts more than once? Or is it just once per card?

    I am not 100% sure but I think if you are buying from somewhere that had it in their ad (Valumart, Loblaws...not sure about others), you can use it multiple times but it will likely only work once for an in-app offer (e.g., if using at Shoppers).

    It was at Zehrs. I had done it the other day, but their ad in their flyer said log into the app to get the offer, so I think it was just an offer. I did ask at Zehrs today and even they weren't sure. I bought another $20 of pepsi products, but I did not get the 6000 pts - so now I know.

    Most offers can be used for multiples, but only in one transaction. So, if you buy $40 worth of Pepsi products, you'll get 12000 points, but if you buy $20 twice you'll only get the points on the first transaction.

    Once you've used an offer, it disappears from your app. If it's still there, you should be able to use it again (some offers, just to be contrary, can be used more than once. For example, right now I have an offer on watermelon - the offer terms (when you tap on the offer) says it expires after one use. I also have an offer on PC pudding. That offer does not say anything about one use, so it will probably not disappear from my app if I use it and can be used again (or saved for next week).

    ugh...Not a great weekend capturing points. Between family coming to town to visit and working on Saturday, I missed the Candy offer on Saturday. But I did go on Sunday, got some candy and a few other things I was needing...I spent 75.00 and got a 20.00 GC to use before May 5. So I will be using that for either things for the Mexico trip, or to get my eye makeup done ( with some tips just in case myself, the daughter - Bride, or one the the bridesmaids ) hate their makeup. I might be able to help them or myself out a little. Trying to be prepared for all the little things that could go wrong. :offtopic: I just remember the daughter having a melt down on the bathroom floor when she was getting her cap and gown pictures done that I had to cancel her photos because her hair was not turning out. And don't get me started on her grad day. I had to fix hair and makeup :scared: :crazy2: on that day too. So it doesn't hurt for me to be prepared!!! lol

    Still didn't get many points with regular grocery shopping and the Shoppers shop yesterday. Oh well...here's to next week

    Thanks for sharing that toilet paper, etc. deal, DisneyAddicted! Just did it with the coupon at my local Valumart. Amazing savings though I think I am now maxed out on TP and paper towels for a bit...lol.

    I have something a bit odd...I am getting double offers for SDM in the app. For today, there was a spend $30, get 6000 pts AND a spend $30, get 7500. For tomorrow I have a 15x the points if you spend $50 or more AND a 15x the points if you spend $30 or more. Separate from that, today's SDM text was for 20% off all regular priced items for tomorrow. Presumably they can't be combined (it probably says that in the fine print).

    Anyone with a PcFinancial credit card?

    Husband and I both received emails for 5000 points for every $25 spent on specific giftcards this week at Loblaws banner stores when using PcFinancial credit. Well one is Uber, I was thinking if it works internationally I would get at least one to use at Disney. I never use Uber but my kids do. I was actually looking for Uber giftcards before Christmas as gifts but didn't find any. So I think I'll check my local Superstore (I was just there today unfortunately) and hopefully get a couple.

    I didn't get this email but sure wish I had. That's a good deal. We use Uber when we are in Orlando a lot so I would be all over that one as well.

    Just an FYI - I was successful in my missing points request for the Easter Offer 10000 points for every $25 spent. Knowing that they aren't supposed to stack, I don't know that I would request the missing points again - just try and do two separate transactions instead. Usually they were very quick in responding to missing points requests, but this one took until this morning from submitting it Saturday afternoon. I had relegated myself to them not giving them to me but was pleasantly surprised. Spent $67.82 and got 35,800 points!

    I received a reply late last night. They asked me to send a screen shot of the offer as they could not find it. First off, I don't have a clue how to screen shot, not at all computer knowledgeable. Secondly, do they not have access to their own flyer?? I sent back a link to it and asked if that would satisfy their needs. Now I'll wait and see again. At this point, I'm assuming its a write off. Oh well. More important things to worry about.

    I did get this email today.

    https://view.e.loblaws.ca/?qs=3b576...527a67fced0b0b2369a16612721da752f61cecef77bbf

    If I hadn't already purchase $150 in Net flex cards I'd be all over this.
