get this deal
this offer is expired

Get ready for the iPhone 14 by visiting Shoppers Drug Mart, where you'll get 5000 PC Optimum points for every $50.00 spent on Apple Gift Cards.

From August 25 to 31, simply purchase an Apple Gift Card with a minimum value of $50.00 and 5000 bonus PC Optimum points will be applied to your account – for reference, 5000 PC Optimum points is valued at approximately $5.00.

While not an outright discount, deals on Apple Gift Cards are infrequent in Canada, making this offer one of the few ways to get an indirect discount on gift cards. This deal is especially useful for those waiting for Apple's next product announcement on September 7, as Apple Gift Cards can be used for hardware purchases from the Apple Store, along with digital items from the App Store, iCloud and iTunes.

This offer is available to all PC Optimum members and can be viewed in the PC Optimum app (Android, iOS).

You can purchase up to five separate gift cards to stack bonus points, but stores reserve the right to limit purchase quantities – click here to view our roundup of deals from this week's flyer to see what else you can buy while you're there.

This offer is available at Shoppers Drug Mart from August 25 to 31 – click here to find the location nearest you.

    • Interesting DP here. I went to SDM and bought a $500 GC. A couple of days later, I went back and bought another $500 GC.

      Here we are a little over three weeks later and it looks like I got the 50k bonus for both transactions.

      Same happened to me too. I bought a $500 from Shoppers and another $500 from No Frills, that I was credited for on the spot. The points from the Shoppers purchase just showed up for me a couple days ago.

    • Is this typical? Getting 4% back with the appropriate credit card, when you buy GC’s from a grocery store?
      My CIBC dividend gives me 4% on grocery. No Frills is classified as a grocery store. Anything bought at No Frills is classified as grocery and eligible for the 4% CB.

      I believe so, at least with the credit cards I have used. I don’t believe the card knows what you’re purchasing at a store. It just sees the merchant type as far as I understand.

    • A family member had the offer. Bought 5 X $500 at No Frills yesterday and got the bonus point immediately, plus 4% cash back on my visa card (for grocery purchase).

      You’re kidding, right? It does not say that at all. Are you literally stopping the second you see “Shoppers Drug Mart” because if you’re actually reading the entire thing you’d see you are incorrect.

    • Coz trying to understand why few ppl are going to RCSS if offer is meant only for SDM
      So why are you asking if you can read it right there? It explicitly says where the offer is valid.

    • The offer fine print says "Please allow up to approximately 3 weeks for points to be added to your PC Optimum account if purchased at Shoppers Drug Mart."
      Thanks... I should have read that before posting. I am just use to it usually being 'instant'.

    • So $50 off ($500) but you lose your credit card warranty.
      That's a good point. Probably not worth it if you are voiding your CCs mobile device warranty and need to pay a few hundred bucks for apple care instead.

      Did you read the offer terms?

      My offer terms says "Offer applies to every $50 spent on Apple Gift Cards up to a maximum of $500 in a single transaction at any participating store location operating under the Loblaws inc. and Shoppers Drug Mart Inc. banners."

    • It's max $500 per transaction, but you should be able to get 50K points per $500 transaction, no?
      Since it is a personal offer and not a flyer offer it will not be available after the first transaction (unless there’s multiple optimum numbers in your household and they each have it). See my post just a few above.

    • It's max $500 per transaction, but you should be able to get 50K points per $500 transaction, no?
      I'm certainly not a linguistics expert but the way the terms are written, it seems to imply that multiple $500 transactions could be made during the offer period for 50K points each. But it doesn't appear to work that way in actuality.

    • I got it as well. Too bad only $500 limit. Would be nice if it was $1000 at least since their products cost way more.

    • Can the cashier at SDM check if i would get the point or i just have to wait?
      Cashier at SDM cannot check that. You have to wait. If you want to know the points should go to Nofrills or Superstore it’ll show up on screen before check out

    • Just did a chat with pc optimum support team, they said all personalized offers are for single use only so cannot be used for multiple transactions but terms and conditions of personalized offers says per customer per transaction.
      I have already purchased $500 gift card at shoppers using CF card, not sure if I should purchase another $1000 to try or wait for flyer offer. Planning to buy Iphone 14 pro max.
      You should wait for flyer offer.

    • An update on my own previous question. My wife and I both saw the offer on our accounts. On Saturday I bought a $500 card on my card. The offer continued to say “Loaded” on both Optimum apps. Today my wife went to RCSS and used my card again to purchase another $500 card. After this transaction the offer changed to “Amazing” on both accounts confirming it’s used up on both.

    • This promo came up for me last month (might have actually been a slightly smaller rebate) and I did six separate $500 transactions over 3 days at a few diff shoppers (they typically have restrictions on how many/much GC one could buy per day as a security measure).

      About 3 weeks later, I saw points for all six transactions go into my account.

      Was pretty stoked about getting all the points without having to bitch about missing points.

      Combined the points rebate with the back to school offer and saved almost $500 on a $2800 mbp purchase.

      I'm a happy camper!

    • doing the math

      3 x 500 cf gift cards
      = 1500 + 225

      Then buy
      1700$ Apple gift cards from SDM’
      = 170,000 pts (worth 170$)

      Net cost of 1700$ is 1500$-170$ = 1330$

      1700$ = iPhone 13 pro max (approx) tax included

      So u get the ip13 pro max for 1330$ net vs ~1700$
      Which is about the Kijiji price
      This can't be done. Shoppers is not allowing you to buy Apple GCs with CF GCs.
