How many do you know who aren't aware that 30% off at SDM is a good deal on items A and B, but not X and Y?

    In addition, how many people are essentially one-stop shoppers who frequent Loblaws or other full-price stores where the regular price is even higher, and because they don't compare prices much if at all, would regard $4.97 as a deal?

    Serious savers represent only a fairly small minority of shoppers. So, the answer to your question is quite a few.
    You are so right, and I too, see it all the time in line at the checkouts, or in the aisles, as they grab that $12 can of Coffee, or $10 12pack of bathroom tissue, that you already know is not on sale anywhere that week. Not hard to size up quickly, who's taken a bit of time to do their homework.
    and of course my question re the $4.97 OJ was rhetorical, but you know that. haha

    I was confident it was, but it pointed toward an interesting bit of consumer psychology, the tendency quite a few people have to feel most people think like they do, so I answered anyway.

    Haven't tried to redeem on the same transaction, but it works elsewhere, ie. like RCSS, so one would hope it would at SDM too, since its supposed to be the same Big Happy program now. I'm sure someone who HAS tried this will weigh in?
    Yes, I know those kinds of promos work together at SDM. And at Loblaws I have redeemed and gotten points for offers like '5000 pts when you spend X on fish or seafood" plus "1000 pts for every $5 you spend on smoked salmon." But I do know at SDM you cannot redeem and combine it with an offer like "20x the points wus $40". Just not sure about "wus $10 on skincare" and other such offers at SDM.

    @Pointsman OMG - where is the emoticon for shocked when you need it???!!! Oh - here it is:

    LOL - now *I'm* having fun. Glad you finally saw the error of your ways

    p.s. Definitely more fun to be OOP less!

    Thanks!

    @Thumpersmom - The 3000 pts WUS offer was on my PCO account. But I'm glad you asked this question... I saw your post where you asked about how to get SDM personal offers. And a couple of people replied that not everyone is getting the offers or not getting as many offers as before.

    But the impression I got from your original post is that you don't actually have a PCO online account. Personal offers come via the online account. And since you asked if I got the 3000 points WUS offer on my PCPlus account I would guess no, you don't. Because if you do have a PCO online account you would likely know that PCPlus accounts no longer exist, just like Optimum accounts no longer exist. The 2 programs merged into the PCO program on February 1st. PCO = PC Optimum program.

    If you do have a PCO online account (not just a PCO plastic card), then the replies from Arjon and nalaric should answer your question re: getting/not getting sdm offers. But if you don't have a PCO online account, then that's where you need to start. If that's the case, post that info here so SCers can help you without you having to go through 102 pages (now 105 as of this post!) Let us know: Do you have an online PCO account? A PCO plastic card? And/or are you using the PCO app? Have you converted/transferred your old Optimum points to PCO points, either in-store or in your online account (if you have one)?

    This may have already been mentioned but I didn't know until I tried it so perhaps it will help someone else.

    I had an offer of 7,500 points for every $75 spent at RCSS. I knew I could reach the $75 mark at No Frills by purchasing PC FREE FROM WHOLE CHICKEN (and earning 5,000 pts for every $10 spent) and PC FREE FROM PORK CHOPS (and earning 2,500 pts for every $5 spent).

    It worked! Even though my digital offer was for RCSS, I did earn 7,500 points for spending $75 at No Frills!

    I bought 5 chickens at just over $10 each, 5 packs of pork chops for just over $5 each and earned 25,000 + 12,500 in addition to my 7,500 so a total of 45,000 points for buying just over $75 worth of meat! And, to make the deal even sweeter, I redeemed 70,000 points ($70) to help pay for it and still got all those lovely bonus points!

    I had a similar offer from Loblaws last week and it worked at No Frills.

    You should yes. If you don't, submit a points inquiry and you'll get your points. That's what I did on Friday. I had a spend $40 get 10000 pco pts offer. I used up my PepsiCo FPC's and other items to bring it to $40. The 10000 pts didn't show on my receipt; I submitted an inquiry and received them within a few hours.
