    Ok Last Wednesday March 25th a coupon came out for 20x the points on $75 and it had to be used by Friday March 27th. So I went into SDM with coupons in hand and my list. My order came to $77.95 before tax and I was awarded 2070 points. Now is that 20x the points multiplied by the 2070 points(2070 x20 = 41400) or am I missing something?

    Firstly, for what day was the coupon intended? If it was your personal offer and you received it Wednesday, then it was likely only good on Friday. Secondly, the points from those coupons are typically awarded at a later date, specified on the coupon.

    Hi mustanggirl -- if you can scan in a copy of the part of your receipt that shows the personalized coupon numbers and points added (just cover up the last part of your optimum number for security) .... we can help figure out what might have happened.

    These types of points are awarded on your base points, not how many points you got multiplied by 20. For example, if your base points are 770 then you will get 770◊19 pts later. But you will not get 2070◊20 pts.

    Yes its only the 940x19...If it was a personalized coupon you will receive the points on May 14.

    Oops, just re read your post...Do you still have a copy of the coupon? maybe in your email? It will say the date the points will be awarded.

    You should get the 17800 pts show up early this month - maybe around April 14th? I doubt that the points that you said have shown up are for this purchase - did you do another 20x pts to be added later? Nice use of coupons in your shop by the way

    940 points are from your total before they subtracted the coupons. Vendor coupons are treated like cash when it comes to earning points. You used $17 worth of money off coupons so you will still get points on those. You don't get points on the free product coupons though (excellent use of coupons)

    Product bonus points are points you received because something(s) you purchased had bonus points attached or you had a perosnalized coupons for 10x, 15x or 20x etc WUB that certain product. Or it was a stated on the tag that you would receive bonus points for purchasing.

    Department bonus points are also products that had bonus points attached. ie: Buy 2 and receive 500 bp. Or it could have been another personalized coupon.

    Either way you will get 20X the points on your subtotal before coupons were subtracted. So.

    $77.95 + $17.00 coupons = $94.95
    940 points you have already received at the time of the transaction. That leaves you with
    940 x 19 = 17,860 owing at the date stated on the coupon.

    When you receive those points your shop that day earned you
    2070 + 17,860 = 19 930 Excellent.

    WAY TO GO. GREAT shop. Great points.

    So you aren't suppose to get Optimum points on products purchased with free product coupons? I thought it was strange when the cashier entered my FPC for 1L chocolate milk as "vendor cpn 2001" instead of "vend cpn free 2002" yesterday and I got Optimum points for it (first time I've used a FPC at SDM).

    No - the FPCs - Free Product Coupons are supposed to go in at 2002 - and aren't taxable (at least at SDM that's how it works)....

    Just be careful though, as next time you may go to use the mc and the cashier may enter all as 2002 .... in which case you may not get your 20x points - or any points I've had that happen on a 20x day and I got a cashier that only used the 2002 code... wasn't one of my easiest shops .... as I caught it and then had to explain why I wanted it all re-entered ... I really hate when stuff goes wrong at the check-out.....
