We have details for the upcoming redemption offer at Shoppers Drug Mart this weekend. As rumoured, this one is a little different than the usual bonus redemptions. You redeem your points for the regular amounts but for the top two tiers, you get points back when you redeem.
- Redeem 95,000 points and get $40 (30,000 Optimum points) back
- Redeem 50,000 points and get $20 (16,000 Optimum points) back
The great thing about these promotions is that Shoppers Drug Mart values their points on lower tiers. So the 30,000 points you get when you redeem $170 are actually worth over $60 if you wait for another bonus redemption or over $50 at the regular highest redemption.
I haven’t seen the full flyer, but in the past, the bonus for points back redemptions has been added at a later date so you can’t use them for a second redemption the same weekend.
