    wait for a BOGO deal, then you will get TWO for free, as you will just apply your FPC to the first item!!!!

    If you can't get BOGO at least use them on a store sale where they treat the FPC like this:

    Shelf Price: $X
    less store discount: $Y (the bigger the better)
    less FPC at $X (what they fill in on the coupon)
    =X-Y=overage

    I know a few members were using their FPC at Sobey's to get airmiles. I personally use them at RCSS so I can get the 10% off the product price of the FPC applied to the rest of my bill.

    great tips! thanks!

    i also want to ask, does SDM charge you with HST for an FPC? i know before they don't but when i redeemed 3 months ago for some free chips and the J&J take-along pack, i had to pay for the taxes. i live in ontario by the way.

    thanks in advance!

    Personally, I always wait to use all my FPC's and HV coupons at SDM's 20X the points events. You still earn 20X the points on the full product price. Also! When they talk about having to spend $75 to get 20X the points this is before coupons. Last time I was in there. I spent $15 and earned 20,000 points! (with BP's and FPC's and BOGO's and the HV coupons.
    Yes, you do have to pay taxes for the coupon value. Unless it says otherwise in the coupon. (this is usually reinforced at all stores)..

    Thanks for all the tips everyone!
    Jasmine, do you know if all SDMs do that? I heard they only give points on coupons not on FPCs. I hope I'm wrong!

    FPCs don't work for points.. they are entered as a 2002 .. the coupons entered as 2001 do qualify
    Be sure to click like and post a brag if you get the deal.. It makes my day!!! Flattery may just get you more deals

    Be sure to double check your flyer, points and cashback offers~ YMMV

    All SDM enter FPC's as a 2002 which mean a FREE PRODUCT COUPON and points are not earned on any item that is entered as a 2002. Whatever you may consider HV coupons are a different story as they are entered under the code 2001, you WILL earn point on all coupons entered under this code. It has been this way for a very long time at SDM, so it's not really the best place to use FPC's

    I like to wait until there is a BOGO, but if the FPC is going to expire soon, I will use it as either Sobey's or Co-Op, as both these stores give you points the full price of the product.
