    Hi everyone!

    I have been debating joining the "PC Insiders" club for the annual fee of $99

    But first I wanted to hear other's opinions as to whether it is worth it or not?

    Do you get more points offers? Or is it just on select PC products?

    Would love to hear your input if it is worth it financially in the long run

    OP, I look at it like a Costco membership and what the membership gives me back.
    I check if I could get my groceries at a better price through sales, coupons, cash back, discounts, buying using points, or weekly points offers. Also, are other stores cheaper for the same products?
    After considering all that, it's a 'No'. It's too expensive.
    Just my humble opinion

    I signed up when they offered me bonus points to do so. I don't find I use it. If you order online a lot then it would be worth the money, but I don't. I did enjoy the free gift they sent though.

    There isn't a "one size fits all" answer. How well the program fits you depends on how you shop, what you buy, how useful the travel credit is likely to be for you, etc. For instance, the 20% in points on PC Black Label products can range from 0 value for someone who never buys them to quite valuable for someone who buys them regularly, even when there's no points offer.

    O.k., may change my mind.
    An SCer posted a brag where they signed up for PC Insider when they were offering a special of 100,000 points back, which makes the annual membership free.
    If this deal comes around again, may try this.

    I think I'm the SCer you're referring to. (I posted a brag 2 days ago about PC Organics frozen vegetables.) I joined when I received an email about receiving 100,000 points if I joined at that time. That made it worthwhile for me.

    If someone had asked me last summer if I thought it was worthwhile to join, I would have said no but that changed once I realized that I can use the offers repeatedly, as often as I want.

    Now that I have started benefiting from the Insiders subscription, I'm loving it, mostly for the 20% back in points on all PC Organics products. I've learned that I can use this points offer anytime at a PC grocery store (not SDM) and as often as I would like. With the digital/personal points offers, I can use the offer for one transaction and then it disappears from my account. With the PC Insiders offer, I can use it multiple times, multiple days on any amount, large or small, for PC Organics and I always automatically get the 20% back in points. I'm not sure if it's supposed to work with redemptions but, so far, I've been able to redeem points and I still earn my 20% back.

    I'm hoping that, come September when my subscription comes up for renewal, there will be another incentive offered to renew but, even if there isn't, I buy enough organic products to make renewal worthwhile.
