    I am not a PC Optimum member but I was having a conversation with a friend who is, and had this thought:

    The scenario:
    This weekend, Shopper's Drug Mart has 24pk of PC Spring Water for $1.99ea. Limit-4, After limit $2.99

    My friend bought four, and I (at the next register) bought MY 4. (Me without a PCOp membership, I didnt get points, but he did).


    The question:
    If he had scanned his PCOp card on my transaction, would their system recognize that he already purchased 4, and bump the price up to $2.99?
    or would it still ring in at $1.99 because it was a separate transaction? 🤔


    (Note: I'm not saying it did, I'm just curious if it would)

    Unless it's stated otherwise, I'd expect to the sale price as well as points on both transactions. Assuming no other items, each purchase would earn 105 base points ($1.99 x 4 which rounds down at SDM, so 15 points per $1 x $7 = 105, worth 10.5 cents).

    It will still ring at $1.99. Product limit is per transaction, optimum card will not track the limit.
