    This looks like a situation where YMMV. Obviously, a No Frills-only offer isn't supposed to work at other banners. There have been a few reports of such offers working at other stores, but no indication afaik as to whether this is still the case or not.

    I suspect it was more than 4 since I have a total of 40 offers this morning, but unfortunately, I didn't take the steps that would let me be sure what happened.
    yes, mine are all active today

    I deleted about 5 offers and pushed back one shampoo offer (not needing it right now). T&T offer 300 pts per $1 spent seems to come every other week now.
    Since I had purchased some Whiskas at Fortinos, I now get Whiskas points offers.

This never happened with the old app. I know this is probably some fraud prevention thing, but some kind of warning would've been nice. Meanwhile I sit on a giant points balance while he pays cash because I have to hoard up my points. So if they force us to pay cash anyway, I will just send him to Sobeys.

    Also, offers still suck
    What about the PC Optimum physical card ( not the App ) , does that have a name on it now ? ( I am yet to get mine )

    I remember the old SDM Optimum card had NO name on it , just the number, so anyone could use it & redeem it - male , female whatever as they couldn't tell who the card belonged to. We just had 1 SDM Optimum card in our household, to accumulate points faster.

    Better to just use the physical card, if there is no name on it, if they keep on doing this .

    How & when do you get the physical PC Optimum card in the store ?

    Do you have to first register for the PC Optimum account online and then go and pick up the physical card in store ?

    Or do you just walk in and fill up a form or something and they give you the physical card irrespective of whether you registered online or not ?

    Do I need to or have to show them the Old SDM Optimum card at the store to pick up the new PC Optimum card ?

    My old SDM optimum card is under some pseudo fake name and my new PC Optimum card will be under my real name ...so I hope I don't have any issues in collecting the new physical PC Optimum card

    I have the password for my online account for my Old SDM Optimum card, so I guess transferring points from my old SDM Optimum card to the new PC Optimum card might not be an issue, even if the old card is under some fake pseudo name

    I thought I needed an extra card for Shoppers (didn't realize I could now use my PC Financial card there too), so I just asked for the card. They'll scan it, and activate it with your purchase (I did buy something) - you don't need to have an actual card to swap out.

    I can't remember what I needed to do to add my old Shoppers card to my account. But I added my mother's too, since I do all the shopping, and it was easy enough.

    In store they scan your old card and then scan a new card no biggie.
    When you use your new card it will show your name on the account like the pc app used to.

    The first name of the card user comes up on-screen when I use self checkout, so I'd guess it's also visible to the cashier at a regular checkout.

    Ok - so I know that I get bonus points (200 pts for every $1 spent on ..., or 600 pts for ....) even when I redeem at No Frills. (I even got the 15k points on $100 last week, and did $100 redemption).

    I know that we used to get item point offers at Shoppers even when we redeem, but not multiplier points or when you spend points. (so 600 pts for doritos, but not 20x on milk), and I'm pretty sure that is still the case.

    Can anyone tell me if you get the "pts for every $" offers when you redeem pts at shoppers. (for example, I have 200 pts for every $1 spent on pepsi)

    I haven't tried this in the new system. I lucked out and I have 200 pts for every $1 spent on pepsi AND 600 pts for pepsi - I pushed one offer and got the other - woohoo! double up on pts. So far I've been earning my pts at Shoppers and spending them at No Frills. But with no milk coupon this week, and no good earn pts offer at shoppers this weekend, I'm likely to redeem at shoppers this weekend. Hoping I still get my bonus pts like I did at No Frills last weekend.

    So with the new program there is a redemption limit of $500 - is this true at Shoppers too? I haven't seen anything to say there is a different limit, but I thought I'd try and get some input from here before I try tomorrow - I'd hate to pick up my item and then find out it's still only $170.

    @tjthemanto :

    You should be able to get the physical PCO card at any SDM or a Loblaws store during store hours.

    You do not have to fill out any form to get a card.

    You do not have to have an account to get a card. You can register after you get the card.

    You do not have to make a purchase to get a card.

    You do not have to hand over or even show your old card to get the new card. And you donít have to give your name or the name on your old account.

    You do not have to allow the store to transfer your Optimum points over to the PCO card. You can do it yourself once you have a card and an online PCO account.

    If you do the points transfer in-store, you can still keep your old card. Check with the cashier in advance as s/he may not know you are allowed to keep your card. Know your points balance beforehand - and ask the cashier to confirm the balance at time of transfer. You can ask for a printout of your new PCO points. Go to the PCO website to know how much your old points should be converted to.

    Itís debatable whether you have to activate the card in-store. A manager told me yes, a cashier told me no.

    Some stores have brought in Ďspecialistsí to explain the new program and in one store I saw one of them had a special gadget to do the points transfer on the spot.

    Your old Optimum account is not accessible anymore. You can use your old password or a new one on the PCO account.

    Good luck

    Cool , Thanks.

    That's what I will do, just walk into a SDM during store hours get a new PCO card from the cashier over the counter, without handing them my old SDM Optimum card.

    Then I will come home and transfer the points online on my own from my old SDM optimum card to my new PCO card.

    My Old SDM Optimum card has some fake name & address on it ( which I don't even remember now ) , but I do know the password for it, so transferring points online to the new PCO shouldn't be an issue .. As they ask for the old password or postal code as verification for the old SDM Optimum card, when transferring points from it online to the new PCO.

    Since the old Optimum account is NO longer accessible online, I can't even log in & find out what fake name & addy I had given

    On the screen the cashier can see your name (I thought full name but could be wrong on that) and your email address (and *I think* your phone # if you put it on your account but I'll double-check this next time I'm in the store unless someone gets an answer before then).

    Fyi, you can ask to get your receipt emailed to you. That's how I learned about the email - the cashier told me he just emailed my receipt to me - they're supposed to ask but he did it automatically. I still asked for a paper copy - and yes, did get the email receipt.

    If that's what the new program stipulates then yes of course, it's at Shoppers as well.
