Loblaw will merge the two programs Optimum points and PC plus points starting Feb. 1, 2018 under the name PC Optimum – It’s been over 3 years since Loblaws purchased the pharmacy chain back in 2013/2014 – So this combination of cards shouldn’t come as a HUGE surprise.
Consumers can keep collecting points as usual until Feb. 1 next year when their Optimum and/or Plus points will move to the new program at equal value. If a collector has $100 worth of Optimum points, they will receive $100 worth of PC Optimum points, for example.
Collectors will then use a single card or app and continue to earn points on money spent at Shoppers. and at loblaw stores.
Redemption System Looks like
- 10,000 = $10
- 20,000 – $20
Up to 50% more points at Shoppers to help increase points needed at each redemption level.
Did you know?
There is 19 Million active members between the programs and 50% are enrolled in both!
NEWS IN 2013
It’s announced today that Loblaws is purchasing Shopping Drug Mart for just over 12 Billion dollars.
Shoppers drug mart is going to keep their name, and Loblaw products will be added to the shelves.
What I haven’t found is: Shoppers Optimum points.
Are they going to continue the program?( Crossing Fingers )
Are they going to change the points system? Could be Good or for the worse
This is my concern. But I don’t think we’ll know anything until things get settled.
So what are you going to do?
Keep saving points? or Spend them while you can?
