    I don't have a PC Financial Mastercard, but I do have the Debit card. I requested by phone some time ago to have my Debit card (and its associated points...approx 30K) combined with my month old PCPlus Rewards account, where I have already earned over 370K points since I joined. Once combined do you think I will be able to use all those points at NoFrill for GCs or groceries, by presenting the PC Debit card? My assumption is that both sources of pts will end up in one bucket so to speak, and even though NoFrills is a non-participant in PCPlus Rewards, they'd have to allow redemption of all the points?
    What do you think? thanks.

    i dont have a debit card with them , i only have mastercard, but i think you should be able to redeem your pc plus too in nofrills , when i shop at no frills the receipt shows the total(pc plus and mastercard) points , since it is going to the same account i was able to redeem at nofrills multiple times and i have 2 MC going to the same pc plus, the points adds up sooo fast

    Check with your local No Frills-- a new No Frills just opened in my area and I asked the same question last week. The manager was really nice, but said as of today (last Thursday), they had no way to accept points. It was suggested that I cashed them in for gift cards at Your Independent, then shop at No Frills with the cards--they could accept them. Might be easier than getting to the cash register with your purchases and finding out they cannot take your points at you No Frills.

    Thanks to both of you, for your quick response to my "No Frills" question ... good idea to redeem pts for PC gift cards elsewhere, and use them at NoFrills for groceries, given the apparent inconsistency from area to area, store to store.

    The problem in my area [S.Ont], is that we still cannot redeem pts for PC GCs, just 3rd party; apparently it used to work, based on what I've read in this thread, but others too are now having the same issue I am.

    Just back from my RCSS, where I asked one of the more knowledgeable Mgrs, when they expect this to be resolved; she said it was discussed with a visiting HO Supervisor last Thurs. but there is some 'bug' in the programming they are trying to find. It may or may not have something to do with the faux pts awarded for GCs during the recent 20,000pts WUS $100 fiasco, and ongoing efforts to claw back those incorrectly (debatable) awarded pts? The saga continues ...

    I'm wondering the same thing. If I spend $100.00, do I receive 2 x 10,000 pts for spending 2 x $50.00 (after coupons and NOT redeeming pts to pay)? - yes, I received 20,000 pts for spending just over $100.00

    Also, if there are bonus points items, i.e., Campbell's soup (on sale for $1.00 and receive 1,000 pts), in my $50.00 total, will that impact whether or not I receive the 10,000 pts? - of my just over $100.00 total, about half was soup and I still received 2 x 10,000 plus 1,000 points for each can of soup

    Update: I shopped tonight, spent just over $100.00 and paid for my purchases (no points redeemed, just to be safe). - edits in blue

    Those of you buying soup with points to get points back (free soup). you do realize they can take these points back just as they did with the gift cards. It does mention in the terms and conditions about not earning points when paying with points.

    I just went looking for the clarification on this, and they sure went out of their way to bury it in the Terms and Conditions at a link in tiny font at bottom right on the website. Comparatively, when you look through the Help Centre, where most people would look for information, there is no mention of not receiving points on items you pay for with a redemption. Nothing under the section you would expect to see it in. Sneaky.

    How do I earn points?To earn points, just load your offers to your PC Plus™ card online or through the PC Plus™ app, then show your card when you buy the qualifying items in-store. You’ll also get bonus offers, flyer offers and in-store offers to enjoy. The more offers you take advantage of, the more points you earn.

    ... which is why, in my innocence I never, ever, ever, redeem PTS on the same transaction as Earning Major PT opportunities.... I prefer to pay by Cash or CC only ... but, that's just me.

    Definitely the safest route - but majority of the brags I read on here for the big points opportunities in the last month or two were people who did one transaction, earned points, then did another, used points AND earned points, etc. so that in the end they still had as many points as they started with. Those folks have not had their points taken away, or I am sure we would have heard about it on here like we did with the gift card fiasco.

    I think it may work like shoppers optimum? If I redeem my points I still get the points connected to a particular item such as buy x receive 3000 points. But if it's an offer such as receiving 18500 points when I spend $75, the $75 has to be in addition to the redemption value.

    I would guess that they class "buy" as actually pay for

    Fair point, but I do still wonder how they could justify taking away these points if they didn't take away points for other similar scenarios that have occurred so far.
