But then on the shelf they have a limit of usually 1 or 2 or 4 of that price. What do you do then? Say I want coffee that's on sale at Safeway for $10, superstore has already lowered their price to $10, but put a limit of 2 on it. What then? You get your limit of 2 and then price match the rest that would ring in higher? Am I even making sense??
    I simply buy 2 at a time on multiple transactions. I could try to buy 2 at their price and then try to PM more, but I'd rather not ask cashiers to do things that are unusual, at least not when there are viable options that take little if any more time.

    Fairly often when the line is short or just me, cashiers will let me do split transactions; I try to go to the ones who have let me before, and buy 2 per transaction. Personally, I only do two transactions at a time, so by doing this for an item with a limit of 2, I'd get a total of 4 on one trip through the checkout. If I want more, I either put the first four in the car then go back in to another cashier, or I get more the next time I go shopping. That's not difficult for me since I usually shop at least twice a week, but YMMV.

    Another option is to use a self-checkout. Buy 2 and pay, then buy another 2 and pay... I have occasionally done three or even four self-checkout transactions one right after another, although not with qty-limited items afaik, but I'd be very surprised if the self-checkouts are programmed to prevent doing this.

    I have a offer of got 10,000pts for every $50 on the total stores offer. If I purchase $55, and I redeem 50,000 pts, could I still get 10,000pts?

    Best guess is that the two WUS offers won't combine, but we can't be sure unless and until someone tries it.

    Yesterday a PC optimum accident happened with me. At Nofrill at checkout for payment I requested points redemption for $70 (my total was $74). Cashier tried 2 time but system was slow so not working. Then I paid full amount by credit card. Receipt showed full amount paid by credit card (no redemption). In the evening I was checking my email and surprised by the congratulation email from PC optimum for redeeming 70,000 points at Nofrils. I checked my pco account and there too 70K points gone, (but not shown in the transaction part, no redemption only the product points I got were mentioned) and in my PC mastercard account $74.54 has been charged. I will call them today and sure they will fix this so not much worry but this can happen to anyone so be careful next time when system is slow, this can happen.

    Update: I was going to call them. For that I opened my PCO account and have a nice surprise, system correct my point's balance automatically and 70K points has been added. So no need to call. I'm happy.

    This happened to me once quite a while ago; actually, the cashier tried redeeming twice, so the system recorded two 20k redemptions before I paid by credit card. It took a few weeks even though I had no other transactions that day large enough to redeem at all plus I had my receipt showing I paid with credit, but my points were returned.

    I'm not absolutely sure, but I don't remember the "unwanted redemption" option being available on the points inquiry form at that time. It is now, which at least suggests your case may be resolved in less time.

    Does the fine print say exclude electronics? If not, is it better to use this coupon on a tablet or wait until the bonus redemption? I'd like to hear some SDM experts opinions

    IMO, there is no one-size fits all answer. Just comparing the dollar values of the points under different offers doesn't necessarily tell the whole story. One potentially major factor is the tablet you're considering. For instance, if it's an older model, it may have as little as 1.5 or even 1 GB RAM, and the OS may already have received its final upgrade. Either of these might mean you won't be able to run or even install future versions of apps that need more RAM and/or a newer version of the OS. If you find yourself replacing the tablet much sooner than you'd like to, it won't really matter which offer you used; they will both turn out to have been not nearly as good as the dollar value alone suggested.

    And ICYDK, the memory amount shown for tablets is invariably ROM, but RAM is more important since ROM is easy to increase using a memory card while RAM is basically fixed.
