    @momi did you get points now? How many points did they award you for this transaction? I am talking about "awarded within 5 days" points.

    purchased 9 items. 8 are bandaid/shampoo type of items.

    I assumed #18995 is for snack 5 day delay bonus points , but without the '1' on receipt, does that mean dried nuts do not qualify for snacks/candy?
    If you loaded your offers,
    You can check online which offers has been redeemed.

    And if you printed the coupon it will show as offer is not redeem...
    I printed my coupons and they were still showing up on my card so I loaded them and use them again.

    but momi, your redeemed coupons don't include your snack coupon.

Was told that milk and juice do not qualify for food because they are beverages. Beverages do not count as food. Said that I never had a problem using milk and juice before with the printed coupons but was given the 8000 points as a gesture of good will. Rep reminded me that in the future, not to use milk, juice or beverages as they do not count as food.

    can you share with us which province is this?

    I am in BC. I redeemed 22000 pts for $30, bought milk, eggs, cookies, pc nutella etc. I got 800 points for milk and 8000 points for my food and snack coupon. So milk counts as food in BC. Wanna move here?

    Which I'd for milk works and which I'd for milk doesn't,don't know
    But it also happened once with me.

    That's right. Forgot about that. Thanks.

    All my offers are loaded.
    1000 wus $5 on snacks/nuts 1/7 offers for this week. (I don't get the emails, offers only appear when I log on)
    Offer still shows as loaded.

    Only thing to do is spend $5 on popcorn, or something else on the for sure list, then it's the nuts that don't qualify under snacks/candy. I've purchased nuts several times in the past and it worked.

    Hi amira
    I am a new member and I have read a lot of your SDM posts and found them very helpful.
    I live in Ontario. I have used the food or snacks coupon many, many times before and have never had any problems with milk or juice before. I did not use any coupons and my bill totaled over $30 for only food items. I stuck to buying food items that I was sure would count and I did not even want to take the chance of buying pop.

    Shopped last weekend.

    My account and receipt show 18500 wus $100 as redeemed, points in 5 days.

    Funny - I only spent $79 !

    Update May 14
    Points not awarded (of course not as did not spend the $).
    Interesting that I did not load this coupon.
    It appeared loaded automatically.
    But did receive 18500 weekend promo wus $75.

    Once the system identified the coupon as redeemed, there is no way to move it back as active. This one doesn't worry me as the $ is too high for me to use. If it were a smaller $, and I wanted to use it on another shop, I could not. It sits there as not usable.

    As the system automatically loaded this coupon, be careful when you shop. I checked loaded coupons before I shopped, and the wus $100 was not there. Saw it loaded and redeemed when I got home.

    Next time I'm checking while at the cashout line, in case I want to remove an offer or two. I see in later posts that they are working on offer issues, but in the meantime, I'm double checking at the store so the offer I want to use is redeemed.

    Not only is the SDM Optimum offers messed up, but now so is my title in this thread. It's gone really wonky and I don't know how to change it back to proper English - any mods can you correct please? If you can't laugh at yourself, who can you laugh at

    One time it did not work but the other time it worked.
    When I made my purchase for the 8000 pts WUS $30 I had loaded the offer onto my card and did not get the offer redeemed because I was told by the CSR that I had bought milk. I went back and looked at my email and noticed that I could have printed the coupon instead of loading it. The coupon code # was 16654. Maybe that is the code for $30 food and snack that does not allow you to buy milk. The CSR said that milk and juice are beverages and beverages do not count. So maybe there are more than one code for the 8000 points WUS $30 on food or snacks.

    This was the first coupon I used since we had to start loading the coupons. I was reluctant and was waiting to see what the other forum members were experiencing. Of course what happens is the first and only coupon that I have loaded and used did not work for me, although the CSR gave me the 8000 points. After this experience, I still feel uncomfortable and reluctant to load and use the coupons because I feel that when we used the printed coupons, the cashier could tell right away if the coupons were accepted.
