    If I'm understanding correctly, that shows an inconsistency which to me means a glitch. I would call Optimum

    I don't think I've ever seen manager's specials entered as store coupons - guess it depends on the store?

    I hope you call... If you do, let us know what happens!

    ^Ok, I just came back to check your receipt for your new transaction. You did not get the necessary base points - a $10 transaction = !00 base points. That 'should' mean you will not get the points from that promotion despite the *1* and the coupon code showing up.

    I would call Optimum - I don't know what else to tell you. Maybe some other SCers can weigh in

    Yes but fpc's do not include in this one

    Received an offer for 18,500 pts WUB $75.00 or more yesterday and, sadly, today there are no new personal coupons offered. It's not that we really need anything else from SDM (we're stocked up) but the challenge of getting the most out of sale prices/optimum pts/coupons keeps me coming back. Ah, well. This will be a "time out" week of shopping at SDM.

    who is calling today for the monday points we haven't received...or will you wait til business hours on monday? I did a $60.00 shop, with redemption and a few coupons....really the stress of knowing that it will work like so many others!?! Shoppers will be on hold if it will be like this for every large coupon where I have to wait and double check daily!

    No personal coupons, no week/weekend promo, no Saturday sales. I imagine it's going to be a quiet day at Shoppers.

    I have 20x wus $40 and 18.5k wus $75. Only spent $1 and one coupon at Shoppers last week (OB tampons clearance $2 - $1 personal offer).

    Reminder to anyone with a giftcard from the last sdm/tims gc promo that they expire tomorrow. I still have mine.

    Let me input my assumption too

    The first offer was spend $30 and get 8,000 points, in this case computer checks the base points earned, you should have 300 base points in order to be eligible for 8,000 bonus points. But you only have 130 points.

    The second offer was spend $10 on snacks and get 3,000 points, in this case computer checks the eligible snack items in the transaction. If there are $10 worth of snacks you will receive the points.

    edited to add: I see when you redeem points, base points are not awarded but you still get the bonus points for the loaded coupons. I have no explanation for that, sorry

    OK. HERE'S THE SCOOP!! EVERYBODY!!

    When we (including me) see the fantastic personal offers/redemption purchases/points back posts on this forum...

    be careful!
    I know because I have tried different variations to maximize offers with redemptions.

    You will NOT get personalized bonus points for any amount of redemption $ value. You must meet the spending threshold above the redemption amount.

    examples:
    16000 wus $60
    spend $65 - $60 redemption = $5 over redemption amount = NOT meeting spending threshold

    16000 wus $60
    spend $125 - $60 redemption = $65 over redemption amount = IS meeting spending threshold

    If it has worked for you to redeem points equal $ to redemption ($60/$60) then you shopped at a test store.

    TEST STORES
    Really cool transactions are happening to different people and all the posts are wonderful. Be very careful when trying the same transactions.

    examples:
    *gift card $ value applying to personal offer spending thresholds
    *personal offer points being awarded immediately at purchase (no delay)
    *redeeming equal $ value of purchase and still getting large personal points offers (22000 wus $100)

    When really great transactions are happening, it DOES NOT that you or I will also receive the great points even if we do the EXACT transaction on the same day, with the identical offer.

    Some stores are identified as TEST STORES. Points awarded immediately, bonus points on redemption amounts, points on gift cards.

    Be careful, this is NOT the new norm. System has not changed across the country.
    These transactions are ONLY happening at the test stores.

    Mine is NOT a test store, so I will NOT be receiving the 16000 points x 2 shops I've been waiting for. I just followed someone else's shop and got very excited that how could I pass on this deal?

    I am NOT complaining, I just want everyone to know to not expect the same offer to work at your store.

    7 PERSONAL OFFERS (previously fri offers, now Sat offers)
    have NOT been cancelled
    delayed because of trial weekend, 2 day personal offers
    WILL be coming after the weekend personal offers (so Sunday or Monday)

    Doesn't matter. Points haven't credited either way for many so please don"t bring your test store theory or whatever that is into it. I did shops at same store same card, mon and wed, both redemptions, Wed credited, Mon did not.
    Something is off about Mondays offers in general

    Anne, respectfully I have to respond that my post is not just about Monday points. Monday points could very well be a separate issue.

    Test stores are NOT my theory. I called and what I wrote is what SDM told me about the various examples I gave. They said yes, that could work for someone else, but yours is not a test store.

    The point is that we should NOT expect that what worked for one shopper will work for another.

    WINNIPEGGERZELDA how do you know this? Did you talk to someone at shoppers? If this is true I am shopping at at test store. Only thing is I have shopped at 2 different stores in my area and getting points right away points for gift cards and redeeming below threshold works at both stores. So if true about test stores would have to be more of a test area.
