  1. Hi, Tanya. I was at Shoppers yesterday, but didn’t have enough to make $50. and it doesn’t make sense to blow $$ just to score points. That said, if I bought a $50. SDM gift card, would I get the 20 x points just on that purchase?? Just wondering, as I can use part of the gift card now and save the rest for later, but score the 20 x points for the gift card…right or wrong??

      Hi Leslie,

      Gift cards do not count towards your 20x the points total, they’re excluded along with items like lottery, tobacco, transit tickets, prescription medication and stamps. You do earn regular points on Shoppers gift cards though!

      • Do you get the 20x points because you were below $50 before tax? Did the points show up on your bill? I was told that the points should show up on April 3rd. Please advise?

          Hi Cassandra,

          I shopped on Saturday which was the in-store 20x points day so the points showed up right away. I did get 20x the points because my pre-coupon total was above $50. If you shopped today with the 20x points coupon your points will show up by the end of the day on April 3rd

  2. i have been told by our 2 shoppers that it has to be the required total after all coupons and discounts! which sucks. how are you able to do it that way?
