I have not double checked yes I believe I got all my points or
Close to it . I bought all my gift cards the same day( first day of promo )

So did they end up paying you points for last time zoo? I took the hit and did not fight for them .
I didn’t fight it either, didn’t seem like it was a winnable situation. From this last batch I had over 6 million owed and got just less then 2 million today but hopefully rest to follow, I can’t see on the app what has been awarded.

Soooo, looks like PC Grinch wins out this time. Somehow I fucked up and bought the majority of my cards on the 27th, don’t know how I messed that up but going to cost me 4 million points, fitting way to end 2020 I guess. I will try and see if they’ll budge but I highly doubt it since I still haven’t received the ones I did properly in July. C’est la vie , I have had 10x worse bad beats but this one was self inflicted.

darn sorry to hear that Zoo, I am much more wary now buying gift cards at SDM, since I've had both issues with PC optimum points, as well as "empty" Canadian tire gift cards, both happened at shoppers! If there are deals at loblaws with instant PC points or Sobeys with air miles I'll be much more inclined to load up on those.

I just looked back at that flyer, and the front page does have in big letters at the top “starts nov 27th” a couple times but that was in relation to the bonus redemption event. Must of seen it and it got stuck in my head as the date the flyer started.

Does anyone buy giftcards from here? Not sure if the transaction is instantaneous, but you get e-gift card via email.

I don't think there ever was any discounts offered.
The only good thing about this is it's instantaneous, so if you need to buy a GC in a hurry, I suppose this would work.
