    I don't think I've ever done a brag before. If I have it was a long time ago. I did a search and I don't see another brag about this deal (but maybe that's just my searching skills).

    We discussed this deal in the Fab Flyer Finds (on another site) and in the Sobeys flyer thread here. It was Sobeys 500BP WUB3 Unico products. The deal included olives, beans, canned tomatoes, tomato paste and some other bottled tomato product.

    So...depending on the store and the particular price they were charging certain items were dirt cheap (SIX CENTS!) or free or a money-maker. I guess their flyer starts on Thursday but I wasn't able to get out shopping until Saturday but there was still plenty of stock so I went crazytimes. Most of the stuff has an expiry of 2015. This photo maybe represents 25% of my purchases. The cans are heavy so I wasn't hauling it around to take a photo but lots of it is still in the garage (I'm hoping friends come over to grab some soon so we don't have to carry it into the basement).

    Loose numbers would be that I redeemed about $300 in Sobeys points. About half of that Unico products and half on other groceries.

    Great Brag! I was able to get some of this deal, although my mom would wants some more. It's my first time registering for club sobey, were you able to redeem more then twice each day?

    I was able to redeem multiple times per day. I was only redeeming small amounts like $30 or $40 at a time. I don't know if they have a max dollar amount per day.

    I do have some points left. I should order some gift cards online.

    @armygirl: can you purchase gift cards using club sobeys points at the cashier or can I only get the gift cards online?

    Very nice job!

    I also saw this deal on ECC and made a full week's work of it! My final numbers were just over 3000 cans, and just over $800 made. I did spend some already but the rest I exchanged for gift cards online. A lot of cans went to a lot of people with this deal! My best score of the year so far (other than the Cadbury bars!).

    I also redeemed multiple times each day. As far as I know, there is no limit stated.

    Great brag! I was wondering if anyone would post a brag about this deal. I think many of us who benefitted from the Sobeys/Unico promo were hesitant to post a brag too early in case, like the SDM Cadbury promo, it would be withdrawn before the end date. Now that the Sobeys deal has ended, it's safe to brag about it.

    Yes, you can purchase gift cards right in the store, using your Sobeys points. That's what I did with the extra points I earned. Just select your gift card(s) from the GC display (it's usually close to the check-outs) and take them to a cashier. Sobeys has quite a selection of gift cards from various stores to choose from.

    This was an AMAZING promo! How often can you get FREE groceries AND earn more dollar value in points than the price of the product? I'm sure there will be a lot of contributions of beans and tomatoes/paste to food banks as a result of Sobeys/Unico promo!

    wow that's awesome...I only redeemed 20 dollar a time, and when I came back on the 3rd time, I couldn't redeem anymore

    I calculated out I paid about 15 cent a can which is not bad, didn't know people can make money out of it. I would have spent more time. Greedy me

    I'm not sure, how did you guys end up making money out of it. The can of Tomato cost 1.49 and beans cost 1.39. Did it cost less for you guys?

    the card is the same day, but to redeem the points you need to call HO to activate which take another 24 hours. I think we should register for all reward program

    The tomato paste priced @79 cents was included in the promo so that would be a money maker spending $2.37 making $3.00 (at the lowest value of .06 per point).
