Luckily my online back up order is shipped today so I now have over 130000 points for the redemption event. I want to buy the Dyson hairdryer. Do I get 20X points for the $300 I paid on top of the points? TIA!
I think you should, but it’s only a guess. Let us know how it goes!

I know when you purchase gift cards they do not earn points for them, but is it the same for an XBOX live subscription card? Trying to get my xmas shopping done before the end of the week so I can stop stressing out. *HAHAHA totally will not happen but I can dream***

    So, I can tell everyone that the Lotto gift card did work at Shell. DH just went in and used it. I'm wondering if the Shell's that didn't take them before just didn't know how to key them in. As I posted earlier, according to the OLG website, any place that sells lotto tickets can use them.
    Hope this helps.

    Hi All- quick question. Am I able to purchase gift cards using my PC points?
    Not directly. What I try to do when I want to purchase my disney gift cards is do a grocery shop and purchase the same amount in gift cards that I have points for. I then ask to use the points towards my order and technically pay for my gift cards out of pocket.

    Last time I went shopping at superstore I had $180 worth of groceries so I picked up $150 worth of disney gift cards, put 150,000 points towards my order and paid the $180.

    That's exactly the way to do it!!!! Your just moving your money around to spend on what you want....robbing Peter to pay Paul as they say. Isn't it great to do that!!!!

    Yup works for me.. Makes me feel like my Disneyland park pass is free haha... hubby laughs because he says you know you bought stuff to get those points right. Sure do but we need those things anyways so it is just a bonus hahha...

    That reminds me I should do a shop again this weekend in store to get a few more gift cards and actually purchase one of the Canadian hopper passes.

    Mine does too. But when I can pull out my pc point envelope of cash to help pay for Disney or Universal...he will be amazed. Just because I plan my shopping for items from Shopper's on bonus days...I'm buying those items anyways...so why not get a bonus for buying them there

    Yay! I'm now glad Chapters gift cards thru airmilesshop wouldnt work for me. Tomorrow my APP says Spend $100 in Happy gift cards at Loblaws get 15,000 points! All the cards I need are good to spend at Indigo/Chapters. Perfect!
    I just seen this too... It looks like Staples is on the list of those cards as well. I am going to grab some for work to use towards postage stamps... It says per $100 so I hope I am safe to assume that means I can get multiple cards because this might be how I can rack up some points.

    Yes, you can get multiple cards that add up to $100 (or more) to get the points.

    Last week I purchased 2 packages of the 4/$15 Dining cards and received 15,000 points.

    On a side note, does anyone else chuckle (or think in your head, 'not a chance!!') when a sales person tries to sway you over to their CC because they say you'll get more points?

    I know Christmas is busy with extra spending but I will admit to being shocked (even though I've had a PC points card for over 20 years) when I looked just now and saw I'd earned over 190,000 in just the past 45 days!!! I'm not aware of any type of loyalty card that can touch PC Optimum, especially if you use it to it's fullest potential!!

    I have been feeling some extra PC points love lately too. Yesterday I took all the available air miles coupons to rexall. The employees didn’t want to scan them all, and made me feel almost cheap for using the system well. And the return % was decent, but close to on par with what I earn at shoppers. It made me feel special appreciation for this program.

    That is amazing... I just looked at mine and it says I have earned 175,000 with shoppers 71,000 with grocery so superstore and a few with gas WOW.... I use my west jet card for all my purchases so I can use that towards our flights.

    I seen something about having a 20X offer in the flyer for shoppers you have to activate it for one time use I guess, I couldn't zoom in enough to see the small print. I am going to try to use that to get the rest of my stockings done.... and they had another lindt offer lol

    Looking for advice so that I can plan accordingly.

    1. There is an offer in the flyer that says from Fri, Dec 6 - Sun, Dec 8 earn 20x points. It then asks you to see the back page for details but I'm looking at the flyer online and cannot see if/where the back page is. Is there a minimum spend for this 20x offer?

    2. If I choose items between Fri and Sun that are e.g. Buy 2 get 3000 points, does this mean if I buy 2 during the promotion that I would actually earn 60,000 points?

    That really doesn't make sense but is that what the offer is saying? I'm confused, can you tell? Thanks for any help you can offer and, if anyone happens to have the paper flyer in hand, is there a better explanation on the back page about the 20x point offer?

    Where do you see the staples gift card offer? I’m thinking this would be great to pick up $100 staples and turn around and use it for the staples shop the block.
