  1. I have a question for you, Tanya. I saw on another coupon site that you can purchase $75. worth of goods from Shoppers Drug Mart, pay with coupons & bring your total down and STILL get the bonus 18,500 points when they have promo days. Well, I tried this yesterday, and it did not work. I HAD to spend $75. AFTER coupons to get the bonus. What do you know about the bonus shopping days at SDM? I want to be able to do what is mentioned. Purchase the amount SDM states, then bring the total that I pay down, & still get the points. If it apparently works for others, what am I doing wrong? Thanks, Leslie

      Hi Leslie, you can only use dollar off coupons ie. $1 off, $2 off, $2.50 off as these are rung in under code 2001. Free product coupons are rung in under a different code, 2002 which you don’t have to pay taxes on but you don’t get points on either.

  2. Thanks, Tanya. As usual, you rock! Have a great vacation!
