If you've been stockpiling PC Optimum points, you might want to pull out your laptop (or venture out to the mall) and finally splurge. The Bonus Redemption Event is back at Shoppers Drug Mart, and the more points you spend, the more you'll save. There's just one catch, though. It all ends tonight!
This event is happening in stores and online, but since you can only shop cosmetics on the web, I'm going to focus on beauty. Make sure you're signed in to your PC Optimum account or present your card when you check out (or sign up here for free, if you're not yet a member) to take part.
Here's a quick breakdown of how things work: if you redeem 50,000 PC Optimum points, you'll get $65 off (so an extra $15). Or if you really want to go big, you can spend 100,000 points to score you $140 off – or if you have this many points, you can trade in 200,000 of them for $300 off your entire purchase.
I'm heading right for their luxury beauty department, where they have new products from Benefit Cosmetics and TONS of other brands in stock. They actually just brought in a bunch of new beauty advent calendars and holiday gift sets, so this is the perfect chance to cross a few people off your Christmas list.
Whatever you buy, make sure you spend at least $25 to qualify for a free mini deluxe sample. This week, it's a trial-size version of the Smashbox Super Fan Mascara that will automatically be added to your cart. Shipping is free when you spend at least $50, so you'll definitely qualify if you take part in this event.
