    Okay, I'm an SDM addict & we have 3 cards in the household all with Plus status, but the only bonus that we're seen this year has been for the Glow Magazine which doesn't really make a difference if I had one or not as sometimes the bonus Optimum Plus pts goes to products that we don't really use in our household. I think I can handle getting one magazine, but 3 is a bit much in our house. I haven't gotten anything else in the mail from SDM & no emails on VIB pts either & all the cards are registered in the VIB program. We've got one card that got the Plus status for 2013 & card #2 is more than half way to achieving Plus status. What have you Plus Status people gotten? I don't do facebook with companies, perhaps somebody that is registered with SDM facebook can ask this question & post the reply on here. Thanks.

    I am in a similar situation: what perks other than Glow do Plus get? If any, then I have not gotten them.

    I've gotten two of those "Spend $100 and get 16,000 Optimum Points" just this past week. I don't know if that came from being a Plus member or just a regular member, though.

    Sigh...The old beautiful days was over, I remember it was great for Plus member when you redeem 75,000 points get 200$ off plus 10,000 points back. It was really practical! Before the change in July 2010 I called SDM asked then then what's good about plus they said there would be more bonus points. Well there were good times, you spend 100$ you get 20x the points and you can combine the plus coupon to get 15,000 more points, lately seems like no stacking or not many plus coupon!

    I've noticed no differences once I hit Plus status. I was getting Glow magazine before I got the plus, so it wasn't that...

    I too miss the "kick back" you got when you redeemed. Last year they had a couple of promos just for plus status members (and even then not everyone got the email) but nothing yet this year.

    Just out of curiousity did you get an email with a bonus point coupon WUS $50 when you hit plus status again this year? I think I did last year.

    I can't rememberif I did get the bonus point coupon from when I hit plus status or just got it from SC. However, I just got the tax-free event coupon.

    Being a plus member for years plus VIB, I get nothing (no mail-outs or FPCs) besides the Glow mag.

    I get some coupons mailed out for getting bonus points for different cosmetics that I never use. I also get glow. I have never gotten a bonus coupon for reaching VIP status. It may be different for different provinces. But I still do enjoy their bonus days even though they don't seem as good as they too either. Buying $200 worth of groceries for nothing is great!

    Other than Glow, nothing. I used to get random freebies, but that might've been something for random optimum members, not just Plus members. My Plus status will expire this year and I'm not concerned about meeting it again, that points kickback was great but since discontinuing that there hasn't been a benefit really IMO.

    I got one and assuming it's from my Plus status bc I never get any coupon like this before. That and the useless Glow magazine. I am hoping the 16000 WUB $100 can be combined with 20x event.

    Didn't even know there was a plus status. Where do I go to read about this? You know, FAQ's regarding plus.
