    My PC offers seem to be getting worse. I used to be a PC insider member but I was breaking even with the points and the yearly fee.

    Anyone else having the same issue?

    @barbis9 same here I have an offer for 20000 PCO if I spend $200.00 at No Frills. I have never spent that much in one shop at NF. I do t. Weíd much this week so I think Metro and Sobeys will get my money as both have the spend 10.00 in air Miles gets 25 bonus Miles and I have 180.00 in miles.
    I was at Costco today as I had some returns and the garden centre was hopping. I bought some of what I needed but lots was out, no tomatoes or peppers. I bought some flowers to start my pots but still need more. For that I have lots of Canadian Tire points so I think they will be my next stop.
    yay for Friday.

    Not sure if this makes sense but I feel like my PC offers are back to what they were when they first merged PC & Optimum when they said they needed to collect data to determine your buying habits.

    I am getting offers for things I have not bought in 2+ years.

    Although I have been lucky and getting some good produce deals. I have found the key to keeping my offers "good" is remembering to move 4 offers for things I buy each week. If I do this for a few weeks then my offers lineup with what I buy but if I miss a week I am back to "um, when is the last I bought that" or "um, never purchased anything like that but okay."

    Question for those who buy gas at Esso - Do you regularly get offers for gas or is it like the SDM offers where is you take advantage of them and use them they seem to stop?

    I usually get gas at our local RCSS because it is close and the best price in town. I seem to get rotating gas point offers between my 2 cards. The offer is usually more often on my just pc pt card (not my PC MC- guess because I use this one more often so they are trying to lure you in on cards that aren't swiped as often)

    RE PC Points- My offers have not been great for a long time and I never swipe my card when I know I don't have anything that will give me points (because I have been paying cash the past 2 months for groceries) so this is probably my fault because of this!
    I had an offer for cucumbers and bought and swiped yesterday so will be interesting to see if I get the same offer again next week.

    @SassyAshley I buy gas at Husky (which is the cheapest in town) and when I pay with CT mastercard, I earn CT money - but this will end on May 31st. Currently Canadian Tire gas bars have double the amount of Canadian Tire money when you pay with a Canadian Tire MCard.

    I prefer that over Esso as I rarely get any offers and I've had bad customer service so I avoid Esso. With the price of gas you would think Esso would offer more points.

    Speaking of gas, as a CAA member you get 3 cents off a litre if you present your card at Shell.

    What brand did you replace with?

    Hi @barbis9 we got a Whirlpool electric dryer. So far it does what it's supposed to do....lol!! Lucky you to have had your appliances that long!! I mean IF we knew a good repair guy who could have tinkered with my Sears Kenmore dryer for FREE and fixed it, we would have done that, but we just refuse to pay any service people now once the warranty is up.

    @barbis9 I will say I do find Esso are hit and miss. My personal pet peeve with them is when they disable speedpass at the pumps. Especially during the pandemic do not make me come in the station to pay or I will go elsewhere.

    Where I live we are limited to Esso or Ultramar.

    I do not know about offering points but I do see you can redeem 4000 pts and get $0.10 off a liter up to I think 40L.

    My DH buys his gas at Canadian Tire and My DDs do Shell since if the used the BMO master card the get 3 cents off and both my DH and I get Airmiles offer for Shell every month.

    Example at Shell fill up 2 times 30L minimum and get 100 Airmiles some times it 3 fill up and get 75 Airmiles.

    Not at all, I had a bunch of returns and I walked straight to the return counter no wait. The line to check out was fine.

    Itís comforting to know this Iím not the only one who gets awful pc offers. I keep getting offers for dairy items like sour cream that we havenít consumed or purchased in 3-4 years. Whatís up with that?

    I resisted the urge to get takeout yesterday after another long and physically demanding day and made buffalo chickun wraps. We did get non dairy ice cream from the local shop that just opened. Soooo good and Dh and I shared a large (even though I could have eaten the whole thing )

    Dh got a visa GC from work and a really sweet handwritten card acknowledging all he does for the company. A couple of the brothers called him to the office and had a meet where they thanked him. Very nice.

    Trying not to shop until next week sometime but not sure Iíll be able to do it, Iíll need veggies.

    Going to the bank today for a deposit and organizing at home today.
