It’s that time again! Shoppers Drug Mart’s highly anticipated Bonus Redemption Weekend is happening on Saturday, May 15 and Sunday, May 16, 2010. I know a lot of SC’ers love this event and have been looking forward to it since the last one in March. Lots of coupons will be expiring on May 31, 2010 so this event comes at a fantastic time. I love reading the “Brag” forum after one of these redemption weekends. Free stuff? YES PLEASE!
Note: The Bonus Redemption amounts may vary from each province and territory. Check your local SDM flyer to be absolutely sure.
Many thanks to steve123 for the early heads up!
How exciting!!! I already have over 150,000 points. I hope to double that for X-Mas so I will get over $400.00 in free stuff. Love the extra bonus points days!! Happy shopping. TY for the post.
i’ve never participated in the redepmtion event….how does it work?
I was wondering the same thing…do you get a gift card, or do you gather up your stuff and then just buy it with points like at Superstore? I think this weekend might be my first redemption…sounds like a great time to do it!
I wondering the same as the above two posts??!
Above 3 posts ^_^
No, you can’t get stamps, gift cards or bus tickets etc. You can get anything in the store, for example i got a camera last time.
PS My total after taxes came to $228. The points redemption is before taxes, so i spent $200 and paid $28 out of my own pocket.
Hope this helps! 🙂
does anyone know how many points we get for a dollar? I am a little short of 40K points.
Yes, you gather up you stuff and pay with points!!
You get 10 points per dollar, although today (Wed) is a bonus ’15x the points’ day when you spend $50 or more – I just spent $60 and got 9000 points!
I just spent $75 on stuff I don’t really need and got 9900 points. Oh well!
Just an FYI- I found out the hard way last time – that when you earn optimum points on a purchase it takes 48-72 business hours to process to your account, that means you can’t try to ‘top up’ your balance to qualify just before the event because the points won’t show on your total until a few days later.
Just keep your last receipt with your new points total for them to see. I would say this delay is strange b/c I have bought the same day (literally a few minutes later) and the same day used the new points and they showed up no problem.
Why do people in western Canada only get a bonus $10 and $20 giving us $85 and $170
Wow! I got a great deal: 2 Kodak digital cameras, 3 children’s hardcover books, and a super soaker. All for FREE!!! Love it!
Up! This is today and tomorrow!
This is a pretty dreadful promo in the Maritimes. It is only an extra $10 or $20 not the $25 or $50 elsewhere. I guess SDM doesn’t value our business as much as that of Central Canadians!
RE Catherine – I don’t know what you’re talking about. The points are added automcatically. The only ones that aren’t are bonus coupons and it states that on the coupon.
Maybe we are just over charged in Ontario and this is just their way to say thank you so we just don’t all shop at walmart where things are half the price.
Bought the Wii today used 75,000 points. Paid $38.00 total WOW
do i get bonus redemption if i redeem my points a murale??
I redeemed for the wii fit plus! Drove around to 5 SDM’s to find it 😉
I only buy things on sale at SDM and use coupons and collect bonus points — only then can i fully enjoy the redemption — SDM is quite expensive otherwise
Can somebody provide us with an answer why some provinces bonus redemption is significantly less?
Got a perfume set and more! Paid under $7. 🙂
Yes it was a bonus coupon I used that’s right. So the bonus do not appear, I guess the regular ones do?
Got a Nintendo DS, game and some Smashbox Makeup. Love these events, this was my fourth time redeeming 😀
Instead of these one off promotions how about Shopper lowers their pricing once and for all before another american company steps in and dwarfs them with lower pricing.
Great deal! This deal isn’t quite as good in BC though… $10 bonus with 40,000 points.
I went today and got $85 worth of free stuff! (I stuck with groceries because everything else I can get free at LD…)
So everything I got is awesome and I can actually use it!
Oh how I wish London Drugs would open a store somewhere in the Maritimes.
for the first time, i redeemed my 75,000 points this weekend!!! woohoooo so proud 😛 i looked at what i bought though and it was so boring … nailpolish remover, day/night cream, make up remover…… nothing “fun” 😛
