Just in time for Mother’s Day (in North America, anyway!), Shoppers Drug Mart is holding yet another Spend Your Points Event.
This weekend, Canadians can redeem their Shoppers Optimum Points for the following dollar amounts:
- Redeem 50,000 points for $100 off (normally $85 off)
- Redeem 95,000 points for $200 off (normally $170 off)
I’ve seen better (sometimes it goes up to $210 or $220 back for 95k points), but this is pretty much the standard points event. Not bad if you were going to pick up some cosmetics or fragrances, anyway! Or anything else at the drugstore, really. The last time it was strictly for beauty purchases; this time it is for most things in store. See full details at shoppersdrugmart.ca.
You can redeem for most things, including prestige beauty items! That means all the fancy perfumes and the boutique brands that SDM sells, like Anna Sui, BeneFit, Chanel, Clarins, Clarisonic, Clinique, Dior, Elizabeth Arden, Givenchy, Guerlain, Lancôme, Lise Watier, L’Occitane, Shiseido, Smashbox, Stila, and German brands Artdeco and Misslyn. Skincare includes stuff like La Roche Posay, Nuxe, philosophy, and Vichy. They also carry nail polish brands like Essie, Nails Inc., Ceramic Glaze, and LACC. SDM’s store brand, Quo, is also pretty great and have their nail polish made by Orly. There is a brand finder on their website (it’s how I scouted out the locations near me that carry Urban Decay).
If you’re thinking of picking up a perfume for Mom, may I suggest a few of my faves (a couple of which I picked up at previous Spend Your Points Events!):
- Burberry – Brit & Brit Rhythm
- Chanel – Coco Noir & N°5 Eau Première (though I heard they’ve altered it, sadly)
- Dior – Dior Homme (seriously amazing!) & Dune
- Donna Karan – Cashmere Mist
- Lolita Lempicka
- Narciso Rodriguez – Narciso
- Rihanna – Nude
I especially like to pick up the ones that aren’t usually available (or are not very discounted) at online fragrance discounters: Chanel, Dior, etc.
Happy points spending!
