    Hmmmm... that i really don't know. I will have to read fine print when i get this mastercard by the end of September. It's still not out yet, they sent me a very early invitation and I was excited that sdm is included in their rewards. Didn't know SC'ers will escalate this matter to a whole new level. Lol

    I was just considering the less obvious benefits, sdm or otherwise. Say you also shop at Staples, can you buy a Staples GC at RCSS and earn 3% and then shop at Staples? That would be good to know. I'm pretty sure you can use your PC+ points to buy gift cards. Or as Ann suggests, buy SDM gift cards that you buy anyway and get points for the gift cards as well.

    Sounds like a great card to have regardless. Would love to hear how you make out with it.

    SDM now offers an RBC debit card that offers Optimum points on your purchases plus 50,000 Optimum points when you open the account at RBC, in case you are wary of another credit card.

    question for my mom. she is obviously a senior. they have an offer for 18500 points wus $75 for all week. They also have 12,000 wus $50 for Wednesday, but seniors day is Thursday. Would she get 18,500 points if she spent $75 on Thursday plus 20% senior discount and $10 gift card that is part of the seniors day promotion? she is trying to decide whether to shop on Wed or Thursday.

    Yeh I have that and I always use that card every where except Nofril where we use PC card.
    Oh and it doesn't have any monthly fees.

    If your mom shopped on Thursday and used the senior's discount she would have to make sure her subtotal before taxes and AFTER discounts was still above $75 in order for her to receive her PC for 18,500. She would still be eligible to receive the $10 GC as she spent over the $50 threshold. This is a better offer than 12,000/$50.

    Thank you! I wondered if both would work together as the are both optimum promos. It would be a super great deal as she would be paying with a gift card she got points on so triple deal really.

She was very nice though .... and I got two fragrance samples What I was getting at is coupons often throw the cashier right off and they don't have any idea how to deal with it.... sometimes I think they should hire an SC'er to "train" their staff what a concept

    I get told that all the time! I said no shoppers wouldn't like me cause I'd cost them to much money in points!

    Yeah I've had to walk many an employee through my transaction lol, so I'm sure lack of employee knowledge accounts for some of the discrepancies.

    It's just incredibly odd that being awarded points with coupons seems to vary so wildly from person to person.
    In both my cases the coupons were entered properly as 2001 - I checked. If they had been entered as 2002 - FPCs - I wouldn't have gotten the base points that showed I reached the thresholds.

    And in both cases, Optimum corrected the mistake and awarded me the points from the offer, with the first CSR acknowledging there was a glitch when coupons were being used (as I already mentioned). Why it isn't affecting everyone using coupons I don't know. But had done a 3K wus $10 food/snacks offer earlier that same week and used a coupon that brought my OOP to $9+ and had no problem getting the points.

    Well believe it or not I was once told by customer service line at shoppers during a call telling me that they were taking away points I wasn't entitled to ( I wasn't but the cashier insisted on manually adding 8,000 points in 1000 increments for a few gift card transactions I did last fall during points event. Even though I suggested nicely that she didn't need to add them manually, she insisted she knew what she was doing, then 3/4 of the way through it dawned on her that she wasn't supposed to be manually adding points as they were to be added at a later point, at this time she accused me of trying to get extra points I wasn't entitled to and treated me like a thief...ummm I tried to tell you on more than one occasion not to add the points manually and you and another cashier insisted emphatically they were right .anyways I digress) so customer service line said I couldn't expect their employees to know what was going on or the ins nod outs of the optimum program as they were only paid minimum wage. So I asked if it was acceptable for the staff to treat me like I was stupid for not understanding how the transaction needed to go...then waste my time at the register (transaction took forever) then accuse me of being a thief for trying to get extra points I wasn't entitled to...and he said yes...they are only paid minimum wage and can't be expected to know any better! Wow, dh and I were totally shocked by that comment.

    ^ I would of contacted their Head Office, and let them know how their staff is degrading not only other employees but the customers. The problem I find is, that shoppers keeps changing their system and that dang computer has a mind of its own. I NEVER leave my house without my dollar store calculator (HA!) and punch in my numbers while I shop.
