    Loblaws is pitching the idea of a $99/yr or $9.99/month membership for customers to gain access to extra points offers. For this Smartcanuck - bahaha - not happening. Wondering who they ran this marketing idea by?

    Its not just Loblaws, I did a survey recently where they asked if I would pay for the Optimum program, if I wanted to donate points to charity, etc.

    My initial reaction isn't positive, but I see no reason to dismiss the possibility of signing up without having a solid idea of what they're actually offering for the money.

    Saw the CBC article as well, I mean, personally, there is NO WAY I would pay to use a loyalty program. But If you use PC Travel anyways, you get back what you spend in the form of a travel credit. So you'd be getting the other benefits covered under that. Maybe for those with children would benefit combining the 20% on essentials with regular PC Plus offers as well as coupons??? Maybe? I don't know, but definetely NOT FOR ME!

    It is not for me and my lifestyle, I would not get any benefit from it but I am sure others will see benefits to this program.

    Never gonna touch this. If the membership included free grocery delivery as often as I wanted in addition to significant additional offers, it might be worth it. People without cars would benefit greatly from free delivery.

    I can't see myself using this, though.

    I've looked at their travel packages and I found no deals at all. Very expensive!

    Looks like Loblaws is trying to compete with Amazon. Costco US is also trying to compete with Amazon. Costco is offering 2 day delivery on groceries and same day delivery on groceries in some US locations. Costco also has travel discounts on cruises, hotels, cars etc.

    Costco has a good price on gas. Loblaws and company are selling off their gas stations.

    And I read on this forum that Loblaws is closing 22 low productivity stores. This after letting people go from their head office.

    Lol they want me to pay them for a loyalty program??? Wow kudos to the guy who’s taken corporate greed to a new level. I’m sure they’ll find enough suckers to make millions 😂

    It will depend on how much you use it.. its somewhat similar to Costco.. Our membership is covered by rewards from the shopping my husband does there.. plus extras..

    Be sure to click like and post a brag if you get the deal.. It makes my day!!! Flattery may just get you more deals

    Be sure to double check your flyer, points and cashback offers~ YMMV
