Back in February I wrote about how you would soon be able to exchange Shoppers Optimum Points for PC Plus Points. Well that came, and the exchange rates were a little disappointing. I have some great news though! Check your email, some of you will be eligible for an even trade right now. Isn't that exciting?
So this is definitely a great opportunity, especially when you consider that PC Plus Points can get you much more variety than Shoppers Optimum Points can. Before the exchange rate was nowhere near even, so snap this offer up while you still can.
You will need a minimum amount of points in order to make use of this exchange though. You will either need 170,000 PC Plus Points or 95,000 Shoppers Optimum Points. They can swap evenly between the two options though, as long as you meet those minimums. I have honestly been waiting for this for such a long time. I have so many Optimum points but nothing really to use them on until the Bonus Redemption days.
So why is the even exchange such a big deal? When this trade system was first implemented, the exchanges were nowhere near even. You would get 40 PC Points for every 70 Optimum Points, which was quite a bummer.
Moosers - are you going to swap your points?
