Shoppers Drug Mart Gift Card Promo Is Back!!

Yes!  The long awaited Shoppers Drug Mart gift card promotion is back starting Saturday.

Buy two or more gift cards at the same time totalling $150 and get 8000 bonus optimum points between Saturday 10 November and Friday 16 November.  I can’t see the details from the flyer, but last year you could do more than one transaction (but only 8000BP added per transaction) and points were added at a later date.

    Can you redeem points to buy the cards and get more points?

    • FallenPixels says:

      No, points cant be used to buy gift cards – and you can’t double dip by buying SDM and use them to buy other gift cards

  2. naya says:

    you can’t redeem optimum points towards gift cards.

  3. noor says:

    but can you clear one thing, I know we can’t double dip, but is it possible to buy other cards with shopper’s GC, without optimum card. I think we can’t get regular points for other gc, so if can use other cards buy shoppers gc we can get regular point for shoppers card at least. never do this so can some clear it if has some experience.

  4. Melissa says:

    its up to individual stores if you can use Shoppers GC to buy another GC but most these days wont do it

  5. Tammy says:

    Is this really such a great bonus? 8000 shoppers points is only worth $10 right? So you spend $150 and get $10…normally shoppers offers $10 shoppers gift cards when you spend only $50 on merchandise so am I missing something here?

    doesn’t seem to be a great deal

  7. Amy says:

    Yes it’s worth it. Assuming you pay with an SDM MC, 8000 bp plus extra 2250 (15 pts per dollar on MC). That’s 10250 pts, worth $26.97 on mega redemption day. Almost an 18% return on what you spent.

  8. lynn says:

    it is a great deal! For example, if you do 12 transactions of $150 each, you will make 96,000 points, and 95,000 pts is equal to $170, or MORE ($250) on mega redemption day! FREE money! And you are not spending your money on sdm purchases/merchandise, you are spending it on GCs that you can use ANYWHERE! Money that you would have spent anyways on gas, etc….

  9. Sparkles says:

    It’s a great deal but be aware of stealing of balances! I’ve heard of people buying gift cards which end up with zero balances on them because someone out there uses the code. I keep track of all of my GCs just in case!

    • FallenPixels says:

      Good advice, thankfully SDM have added a scratch pin now so its harder to use them fraudulently

  10. Great deals! Time to go shopping!!

  11. summerc says:

    I just want some clarifications. So if I buy $150 worth of SDM gift cards during this promotion and I got the 8000 points, will I still get points during their 20x points event when I pay with these GCs?

  12. Kary says:

    @summerc i think so

    i think this is a great deal. you’re basically getting $10 for free. you’re not really “spending” anything, you’re just transferring your money onto a different card 😛 🙂

  13. Lisa says:

    Does anyone know if they sell gift cards at some locations that are additional to the ones they have on their website (what I really would like to know is if they sell walmart or costco gcs). Thanks to anyone who can help!

  14. ROBIN says:

    Its a terrible idea, in the end you loss MONEYYYYYYYYYYYY
    To buy a VISA GIFT CARD AT SHOPPERS is costs about $12.95 to activate them, so you will be LOSSSSSSSSSINGGGGG MONEY.

  16. Tammy says:

    Lynn…12 transactions of $150 each ???? Your bank account must be much fatter than mine!

  17. Mom of 2 says:

    I don’t see this in the Ontario flyer. Am I missing it?

  18. follyfolly says:

    I also don’t see this in the BC flyer?

  19. SandraY says:

    You can go to the Shoppers web site to get the info on this promotion. Friday is the last day to get the bonus. You will not see the bonus points added until November 23 but make sure they scan your Optimum card. I didn’t see it in the Ontario flyer either but I did call head office and they did confirm the bonus deal was for the whole country.

    Shoppers in BCE told me today that the Shoppers cards were not included in this promotion. This is after many puchases.
