Is your Optimum Points balance feeling lonely after last weekend’s Bonus Redemption? Fear not! On May 17 – May 21, 2010, Shoppers Drug Mart is giving 7000 Bonus Optimum Points when you spend $50 or more (usual exceptions apply). Now I know this offer is not as great as 20x the points but if you check the flyer for deals and use coupons, it may be worth your while.
***UPDATE***Apparently, this is for Atlantic provinces only. Although I phoned SDM Customer Service this morning and I was told it was nationwide.
Thanks to matrix82 for the heads up!
I looked at my local flyer and this promotion is not in our flyer. Is it still on for all stores or is it only certain stores? This past weekend we had the points redemption- but never saw this ad in the flyer.
Not sure that this is applicable in Ontario.
It’s not in our flyer either. I’m leary as I didn’t get an email either. I’m not going to do it regardless. But I wouldn’t want to risk it.
I phoned SDM Customer Service and confirmed that this promo is in effect nationwide from May 17-21, 2010. It’s availble to everyone, not just the ones who got the email. Bonus points will show up right away at the register and will only be given if $50 is spent after discounts, redemptions, and before taxes. I asked the rep if it’s $50 before or after coupons and he said AFTER COUPONS.
Just called because it did not show up on my bill and it is Atlantic Provinces only!!!
ATLANTIC PROVINCES ONLY
Shoot! I live in NB and already did my shopping at SDM yesterday – spent close to $100 – could have gotten 14,000 bonus points!!! 🙁
Well I got some great deals so only slightly disappointed.LOL Should have checked before I shopped.: (
They’re getting cheap with points promos. Used to be 15,000 points ($25) when you spend $75. With their High/Low pricing strategy, it hardly ever makes sense to shop here unless you get in, grab your sale item and get out. They really are the most expensive retailer in Canada, even with a solid loyalty program. So watch for sales, bring your coupons, but don’t get sucked in to the over-priced high-margin items that occupy 99% of their store.
got into a slight quarrel
with my sds h.o. to no avail very disappointed for sure I mentioned the update and they still would not award me the 7,000 pts purchased items that could have been purchased elsewhere cheaper oh well live and learn
