    ^tell her to charge you for 4, pay your bill and go and get the fourth one after all is said and done.

    Sometimes PC points offers round, and sometimes they do not, which is an endless source of confusion and frustration for me.
    I'm pretty sure it will be fine, they have always rounded 0.01 for me.

    Don't ask me what the limit is though, just last week, my $x.58 chicken got rounded down but my $x.59 beef got rounded up. But I have had $x.88 bananas rounded down...

    In the end, I just avoided the hassle and bought four units.

    When the cashier presses the subtotal button, the point should show up if $9.99 is o.k.
    At the end of the day, it's less about this specific Oikos offer, and more about PC Plus' rounding policy in general.

    It's incredibly inconsistent.

    I don't think there's even a policy. It feels random.

    Magazines don't round up but sometimes produce does round up at the till for points offers. Laundry detergent may round up.

    I am glad to see 200pts per $1 spent on T&T seaweed since I know where to find them at my store.

    What I do when I'm not sure if I'll have enough for a promo: I take my extra item(s) to the cash with me. I tell the cashier I'm doing a promo. I have them ring up my items w/o the extra stuff (keep it in the basket/cart). I ask for a subtotal and then ask the cashier to check if I got the points - and I check along with them - I like to see for myself If so, I hand the extra item to the cashier and say I won't be taking this after all (sometimes I wait till after I've paid to do this). But if I'm short then I have the cashier add it to my purchases. I find this strategy saves a lot of time, hassle, and sometimes unnecessary expense

    I've considered doing this as well, but I guess it depends on whether the item in question is perishable or not - if it's a perishable, then I'm not likely to do something like this - there's no telling how long it will take for the item to be returned to the refrigerated or frozen area.

    I am sure you can log in to your PCplus acct online to see how you got your points.

    @bluerose Either in-store points offer on a product or you did well on the pts extravangaza PIN codes recently!

    Nothing exciting offerwise in my account-no magazine points offer. I had purchased a new issue of First for Women two nights ago and usually wait to see if a points offer coincides with new issue release. Not this week.
