    So lately my personal offers SUUUUCK! Stuff I just don't buy, or will never buy! I get a lot of cosmetic offers for high end cosmetics. I don't even wear make up!!! Occ. I put on mascara and lip gloss but that's it 😒 if I stop loading them will that work? Ugh so annoyed.

    I never load anything that I won't ever use. You can trick the system by changing your gender and age. My shopping buddy gets a lot of frozen, junk and convenience foods because he is a young male. This week he got pop, chips, licorice and bread offers. He never gets baby offers even though I got him to sign up for VIB and get the great deals from that. He gets a lot of mailed out hygiene samples like shampoo and soap.

    Yes stop loading. When I was having major problems with my PC Plus points missing every single shop, I spoke to a rep on the phone and they told me if I hate the offers to not loado them. If you load them the machine assumes that you like them. I'm guessing since SDM is the same company now that they use a similar theory

    I wonder if the high end cosmetics is a general offer used as advertising. A lot of their stores under renovation are adding more cosmetics space so they seem to be pushing that

    Apply every possible promo code to your cart, at every store that you visit (and get points for cash back on top of that?). It's sweet and easy with HONEY.

    I agree, don't load them and don't shop at SDM at all when you have the crappy offers. I have had at least 4 months of them so I stopped loading the offers and was only in a SDM twice in that time. Today I finally have a few that I can use so I loaded only those.

    Just keep buying your usual items and toss in something different. Watch offers change. My personal offers have been more miss than hit. I do like to check items on clearance shelves-that might help to change future offers if you buy something different than usual (pressing need for stationery or Stylize accessories or PC food products?)

    I was going to visit SDM today but forget the shopping money when I went for a walk. Tomorrow is a day away-will visit then.

    Samm07, you have company as I received the same three offers this week. And to make me feel even more special there wasn't a Monday offer to load. Argh!!!! I might have to start considering Rexall for a bit and see if my offers improve. Happy Halloween everyone.

    I never buy the same things there. So it's weird my offers keep sucking. I'll see how it goes I just did two shops on the same day for some random stuff so maybe. My issue with these offers and the way they choose them is that I don't shop like normal people, I don't buy the same thing every week. If something is on sale for a great price I'll buy a crap ton of them. So say soup at no frills was $1 (usually $2 and it's one I like) so I bought 15 (store limit) and that's how j shop. So I bought 9 pads tis week at shoppers, 8 bags of chips, etc. So next week if I get a Kotex offer or a chip offer its just pointless. Because I don't need more. It's annoying lol. But I guess that's my own fault for buying stuff this way

    I posted in another thread that my offer have been horrible lately, since my local Shopper's is a smaller store and does not have the variety so for me to shop at Shopper's I have to travel at least 15 minutes (really not big deal) but if the offers do not justify it I don't go.

    As well my phone broke for the second time in under a month and went in for service and I am horrible for logging on online so I did not load for 3 weeks this time and last time was 2 weeks.

    This week my offers are WAY better for Shopper's.

    Beware rexall their prices are SO expensive! It is actually my closest pharmacy but I go out of my way to go to shoppers because items are often 2 or 3 dollars more at rexall. That adds up fast

    i also don't load offers I don't like and I don't shop at SDM unless there's a decent offer or a good deal - their prices are too high. I went about a month without buying a thing then did 2 promos in a week - but they were for smaller thresholds (less thant $50). For me 20x points is still the minimum I expect and I rarely buy for less than that. But since bonus redemptions are happening less frequently now, I don't jump at those offers like I used to.

    Rexall flyer sales are good otherwise I find them more expensive. It pays to comparison shop. I use an app on my ipad that allows you to search flyers for the best deal. I have tried to post it on this site but it gets automatically removed.
