    Our new offers brought an unpleasant surprise. They are all 100 points per $1. Both our accounts mainly shop at RCSS, so we have been getting 200 per $1 ever since the program started, with only occasional exceptions when an account has been used at No Frills a few times in a short period. Not this week. Anyone else seeing this?

    @Arjon I was weirded out by the offer of 50 PC points on each $1.00 for blueberries. Never been that low of an offer before. Isn't that like FIVE cents? In the past it's been 100 PC points per $1.00 spent.

    same for us, both our accounts have 100 points for every $1 or 200 points for every $2.

    Last week i had an offer for Atlantic Superstore that said "Spend $10 on anything in-store, get 10,000 points." It was so weird....and super easy to use. I have been using the Optimum program since it began and have never seen an offer that good before.

    I have an offer for 200 pts per $1.00, a couple of offers for 100 pts per $1.00 and an offer for 50 pts per $1.00.

    I always buy based on what is on sale and what I need, any points are just a bonus. If the companies are changing the loyalty programs, so be it. It really won't change what I buy or where I shop.

    I like the program overall but there are many changes lately such as points for more of the PC products and not the items I usually purchase. If the program rewards for items I purchase, then it would be nice to get something back. I never buy certain items yet get points promo on them, have had the card for years and I rarely get a points promo on my usual purchases.

    I tend to shop at Independent (Loblaws) about every 4 weeks when we receive a $10 off wus $100 PC express pick up offer. I find shopping online for bonus points much easier than I do in the store. The store is simply too big to find the deals. I carry forward the points offers until the week that I shop there.
    I tend to do the same thing with Metro offers which offer $10 wus $50 and they happen about twice a month.
    SDM very occassionally so doesn't really matter.

    And I find sifting through to app to find all the offers so tedious. But I am going to keep doing it because I want to save on groceries as much as I can.

    for a few weeks now, I've gotten offers on my card and then 'poof' they are gone or reduced from 200 per 1.00 to 100 per 1.00. Any suggestions if I had an offer and took a screen shot of it, do you think I can use it and send in request to honour/add points?

    Thanks
