    Can someone help me out for a second please. I don't normally shop at SDM so I am not sure how this works exactly.

    I have an the snack offer 3000pts WUS $10, the Pepsi offer 6000pts WUS $20 and also an offer for 20x the points.

    I was going to buy spend the $20 on the pepsi products. How does that calculate out with 20X the points? I'm not getting it and I think my brain is frozen today.

    I'm an idiot I just figured it out!!!

    Just a reminder.

    Well, everything is still sorta topsy turny in terms of which offers work with which and how them combine, etc. But based on what I hav read, it will work as follows;

    Spend $20 On Pepsico Products = 6,000PCO Pts
    Spend $10 On Candy & Snacks = 3,000PCO Pts
    These two **should ** combine no problem = 9,000PCO/$20 = 45% back
    Not certain about 20X, based on others experiences it should combine. It also depends on how much you have to spend on your 20X offer. Roughly it works as follows;

    20X PCO (Assume $40) -> $40 = 600PCO Base X 20 = 12,000PCO (30% back)
    ** IF ** It combines with your other offers (Assume $40 for 20X) it would work as follows;

    Spend $20 Get 6,000 = 6,000PCO Pts
    Spend $10 Get 3,000 = 3,000PCO Pts
    Spend $40 Get 20X = 12,000PCO Pts

    Total of 21,000PCO Pts (52.5% back) + $20.00 FPC from Pepsi Promo = 102.5% back w/ FPC value accounted

    We really have to get accustomed to this new system and what works together and what does not. Because if offers start to stack like this, it's gonna work out REALLY well for earning points!

    Do Shoppers offers load automatically or do I need to link my previous SDM card to the new PC card? I am only seeing the grocery items that I *normally get - not the previous SDM type offers.

    thanks

    I think for the spend $10 get 3,000 they would get 6000pts if they spent $20 right? (based on 3000pts per $10 spent)

    Which would be

    6000pts pepsi
    6000pts by buying 'snacks'
    6000pts 20x (if its only 20$)

    but if it was 20x wus $40:

    12000 $40 on pepsi
    12000 (3000/$10)
    12000 20x wus $40

    36,000pts wus $40..... plus you could claim a $20 rebate!!

    I don't think so, the Pepsi is "For Every $20", so you can get 12,000/$40, but the Snacks offer is a "When You Spend" which is normllay just a threshold to reach, but not for every $10 spent. At least that's how Optimum offers always use to work before?? It might've changed but based on the wording I'm hesitant to say it has changed.

    After the account is created, then prompts occur to link cards and by then your offers s/b automatically visible and loaded.

    That worked! Created account, linked cards and saw my offers! Thanks!

    Next question . . . has anyone figured out how to set your card(s) for "earn only"?

    My Mom has PC Plus and Optimum that need to be linked, only issues is she does not think she changed the email address on her Optimum account and it is linked to an email account she doesn't have anymore.

    Would her best option be to go to SDM and get them to link her Optimum to her new PCO card?

    No. Pepsi falls under "beverages", pop, water, etc.

    "Candy" are things like chocolate bars, hard candies, gummies, etc...
    & "Snacks" are things like chips, pretzels, popcorn, etc...

    Basically if your store is merchandised properly (ha!), the aisles will be marked accordingly.

    Thanks @endi2000 !! I cancelled the original invite and redid it and this time it came right away to the secondary email. Primary & secondary cards are finally linked!

    Right, I was being optimistic if the offer was like PC offers... because those bonus thresholds always were for every $$ spent

    Yes, it was a one day Flash offer at RCSS for sure. Not sure on the other stores but pretty sure No Frills was not part of it.
