    Well the BIG Pepperidge Farms Cookie and Cracker Chips Boxing Week Giveaway concluded with the expiry of the ad (see graphic), on Saturday; anyone trying for this Freebie found out that to get the 2500pts required CS intervention, and we were told the ad was in error. I believe some folks were not granted their extra pts (2500 vs 300) per item, but most were given "Goodwill" pts to make up the difference.

    NEWS FLASH: just over to our RCSS this morning, and would you believe the cookies are still yielding 2500pts, but this time with a legitimate shelf sticker that shows these points in the bottom rt corner. There is a limit of (8) now in effect ... no sign, but all the cashiers are aware, or should be. There was plenty of inventory, btw, so I grabbed my (8) all of which is going to a family we're close to who don't have two nickels to rub together, and are expecting twins! Yikes!
    NOTE: Does NOT apply to the Cracker chips.

    I got a 2000pts for Huggies wipes personal offer, but are they on sale this week at all anywhere to price match them at superstore?

    Nevermind, upon closer inspection of the offer, it's for the 168-960 pack, but the picture shows the tubs... they really need to get their act together on this program.

    I bought 6 of the pepperidge farm crackers. I checked on the way in to store for a notice about points error, saw nothing, and when I went to shelf there was a colorful banner saying 300 points per bag. I took a screen shot of the flyer which showed the original 2500 point offer. Took my receipt and screen shot of the flyer after I paid and did not get the points 2500, per bag. cs told me to do a missing points inquiry on my phone app, which I did. Should I call the number too? should I go back and ask them to comp me the points?

    Same thing happened to me this past summer. 2000 points for Huggies wipes with the tubs in picture but the fine print said 168-960.

    I ended up buying ONE tub because they were $2 and I had a $1 coupon and I got the bonus points! I was so ticked I didn't buy 20! lol

    Not sure if it'll still work but may e worth a try... GL

    thanks for the tip... just got back bought 4 cookies $2.50 each used 2- $1 wub2 coupon and got 10,000 points automatically so no hassle. so made $2 and then put them in the foodbank bin as we don't really eat that kind of thing very often. There was no sign indicating limit of 8. Will probably go back tomorrow and get some more. Thanks again for the tip.

    When I'm not sure about whether the points are there or not, I grab as many as I would like to buy, bring them to the cash (always use the self-checkout though, less hassle, can take my time), and I scan them, press "Pay for my Order" then the points show on your items. You can then press the back button and continue your order. If the points don't show, I leave the items aside, and return them when I'm done. .. Used that method on the cheesecakes and the mandarin oranges. Didn't want to buy unless they were free! lol

    You are most welcome. Funny thing about those coupons, and the limit. Upon arrival at my RCSS this morning, I was surprised to see the 2500pts sign AND actual inventory on the shelf. So I went and asked the senior cashier about this, since she was the one who had helped with the manual points on Boxing Day. That's who mentioned the' limit of 8' and then we talked about the $1 coupons, on top of FREE, and she says 'its fine to use them', but the full pads on Boxing Day were now absent. I guess you beat me to it.

    Nope not me...I only took 5 on Boxing Day. I didn't have then with me so I grabbed 2 today...there were still some and even a partial pad right in front of the cookies. I would never clear out a pad....bad couponing etiquette tempting though it might be sometimes!

    Hmmmm... that's very interesting, as I just picked up a few grocery items and a GC from a leading golf equipment retailer, and redeemed PC pts to cover it all (except the few bucks over the 10K threshold, for which I used a PC GC, so zero OOP. Perhaps because, it wasn't the only item I was getting?

    Maybe they only stop redeeming points for PC GCs. But not third party GCs like sears or Petro-Can.

    Call them. I've only used the online inquiry once, but never received a response. I've heard similar stories from others. The representative I spoke to also said it's better to call.
