    Gotta relate a little story of what happened last week. DW had some awesome offers, including 2,000 for Breyers Ice Cream, 7,500 wus $20 on Health and Beauty, and 5,000 wus $50 In-Store. We were shopping together at a Zehrs, it was crazy busy, and we just wanted to get out of there, with our small, but Points heavy [36,000] 'shop'.

    My wife scanned her key fob to start the order, as I was behind, loading stuff on the belt. At checkout, we looked at the receipt and only the H&B points x 2, so 15,000 were awarded. Having had many instances of missing points, I just assumed the obvious, and once I got home, submitted the usual online Points Inquiry.

    The next morning, I was checking my account, and saw I'd been awarded 15,000 pts the day before !? I also had the Health & Beauty offer, which explained a lot. I then checked her acct. and zero points. Yup, you guessed it ... she swiped the wrong key fob; we had both forgotten I'd given her one of mine, just in case.

    So back to the store we went, and after explaining our error to the (now very confused) CSR, she swiped MY key fog and credited back the entire order. Step 2, swipe DWs key fob, re-enter all the items, and pay (again). Voila ... 36,000 pts on the cash register slip. Yippee!
    I had expected, that by re-swiping my fob for the credit, the 15,000 pts I'd received would have been subtracted. But, they were not, so I still had a problem.

    Back home, we submitted another PI, to cancel her request for missing 21,000pts., and then I did a PI on my account, to explain I'd reversed my purchase, and to feel free to remove 15,000 points from my account, since it didn't happen in the actual credit transaction.

    The following day, I got a nice email from CS, thanking me for my honesty, and 'because of my honesty, they were letting me keep the 15,000 points' This was very unexpected, as we're talking $15 here! I've been a huge fan of this program since day-1, and after this, even more so.

    I don't understand why people are always complaining about this program. We've all saved a lot of money from it. And how often do you see coupons in newspapers for fresh items like meat, cheese and fruits/vegetables?

    I love this program. For the way I shop, it's a lot better than anything else, because I don't buy a lot of boxed junk. And I have saved a lot of $$$ on my everyday items!

    No base points, offers vary wildly from week to week, offers for things I have never bought nor would buy, can't pm at stores near me so won't pay ridiculous prices just to get points because then it is no different from someone else's sale price, and thus no incentive to step foot in the store, vague offers, offers that don't credit...I could go on I guess depending how you shop it is no different than me saying I don't understand why people complain about shoppers drug mart. If it works for you then great.

    Do you get base points if you pay with a PC debit card?

    They combine the old PC points with the new PCPlus points together. So the answer could be yes and no. You would still get the same amount of 'base' points you got before. But you won't get any more than that. I.e. you won't get both the base points in both the old PC points and the new PCPlus points. And the points are shown as PCPlus points now.

    I like it a lot but like Anne said, items range all over the place. Week after week I get avocados whether I buy them or not. Points also are not as good as they were earlier, most of them are for 100 or 200 which is great if you were going to buy them anyway but they equal 10 or 20 cents so it's not great. The best part for me is I accumulate them at the gas station. I used to get the coupons but it's much better to have them accumulate on my card since they don't expire. I always forgot I had the coupons or they'd get torn up in my purse.

    Nice surprise I got 7600 pts when I bought the can of lobster meat this weekend in Ontario. It's on sale for half price, 9.99 instead of 19.99. Went back to look at my offers, I had a 400 pts for every one dollar purchase of frozen seafood. Didn't even notice. That's like taking almost 40% off!

    I received a bonus offer "Every $10 spent on What’s for Dinner Game Day Classes in PC Cooking School"
    So what's the deal with these classes? Does it have to be specifically a "Game Day" class, and when are these even available? I tried googling the PC Cooking School and I see What's for dinner Fun with Potatoes class, and the Cupcake Mania, but no Game Day?

    I would love to go too, it's a GREAT offer, and I love learning new cooking tips. Any insight?

    Maybe it has something to do with Superbowl food?

    I love this program and yes, sometimes there are offers that I don't end up using no matter how good it is.... I had a great magazine offer but in the end, we don't buy them & I'd be wasting my $$$ just to get points. I've been fortunate that my most of my offers are well suited to our shopping needs. I PM all the time at RCSS or NF's otherwise, I won't buy the product at a ridiculous high price.

    I'm excited for this year in saving all my points for the end of 2015 to buy gift cards to give as gifts or use to buy gifts this Christmas!! I'm off to a great start!

    I got an offer for 2000 points:

    For every $20 spent on Deli cheese or deli meat, or ready meals

    Includes deli cheese, self serve deli meat, or service case deli meat, service counter or prepackaged salads, pasta, gourmet foods, meals to go, ready to eat and/or ready to heat meals, or sushi. Excludes vegetable or fruit platters, and breads or rolls.


    Would this include the 250 g bars of cheese in the deli area or just from the counter - sliced etc? thanks
