I got my OPTIMUM card

I know it's been a long time coming! I finally got my Shoppers Drug Mart Optimum card, I now it's time to figure out how's the best way for me to start maximizing my points without spending the most money!

Get 10 points when you spend $1.
Get 100 points when you spend $10.
Get 500 points when you spend $50.
Get 1,000 points when you spend $100.

REMEMBER: Don't just shop at SDM because you get points.  You won't save money by shopping here just because of their points, especially when another store has the same product at a much lower price!  

I have SCOURED the Internet and have come across some great TIPS to earn mega points, so of course I will share with you!

Always purchase milk!
Buy a gift card before you start shopping during that visit, because you earn points on the GC and then again when you use your card! DOUBLE the points!
Use a GC to buy stamps, prescriptions and other stuff you don't regularly get points on.
Use coupons when you can, you get points on them as well!
Bonus points days are a great way to build up points fast!
Also SDM always has great offers on getting more points, has a great link that always updates on new Optimum points offers,  CLICK HERE to check out them out.

To be honest, I am a bit overwhelmed when it comes to these points, but I am hoping I will figure it out all out soon enough.  My goal now is to ALWAYS have my optimum card on hand so I can start earning my points!  

Happy Savings!

  1. I am a long-time Optimum card holder, got mine as soon as it came out, and have redeemed many times over for mega bucks. Keep your eye out for the 20X Optimum point events, they have them once every 4-6 weeks, you can earn HUGE points on your everyday purchases if you time it right!
