🍂 Happy Thanksgiving 🦃 to all the American readers out there!
I’m an American living in Canada, so I’ll be whipping up a mostly-traditional Thankgiving dinner tonight, while prepping for the Shoppers event this weekend. Ha!
For all the Canadian readers: this Saturday and Sunday (November 25–26), Shoppers Drug Mart is offering a Spend Your Points PLUS Event.
The deal is pretty much the same as usual, but you get additional Optimum Points (rather than additional cash off a purchase).
Spend the following Optimum Points and receive (edited my mistake below!):
- 50,000 points for $85 off, plus $15 $20 worth of Optimum Points
- 95,000 points for $170 off, plus $30 $40 worth of Optimum Points
The bonus points get added to your account a week or so later.
Since Shoppers Optimum is merging with PC Plus in February 2018, I’ve been looking to redeem as many of my points as possible (the new program allows you to pick up points from other Loblaw-owned grocery stores, but the value of the new PC Optimum points will drop a little bit compared with Shoppers Optimum points).
In all honesty, the merger comes at an “opportune” time for me, personally, since most of the reason I rack up so many Optimum Points (besides using the app and coupons religiously) is that I purchased a lot of baby supplies there over the last four years. Now that we will be rarely purchasing diapers and baby food, I think my Shoppers spending will be going down fairly drastically.
So, earlier this month, I redeemed 95k points without waiting for an event, but I’m honestly a little surprised to see that an event is being run so soon after the merger announcement!
Here’s what I got:
- Chanel Le Vernis Longwear in Rose Caché
- Chanel Le Vernis Longwear in Rose Confidentiel
- Chanel Le Vernis Longwear in Rose Energie
- Chanel Le Vernis Longwear in Rose Prodigious
- Dior Diorific Vernis in Emerald
- Estée Lauder Pure Color Love Lipstick in Ripped Raisin
I have more points so I will be redeeming them this weekend. A few more Chanel polishes are on my wishlist, but I’m not entirely sure yet what I will fill out my order with. I’m even running out of Christmas gifts to buy—look at me being so organized with my holiday shopping!
If you need more ideas, here are links to some of my other previous Shoppers Drug Mart/beautyBOUTIQUE hauls, mostly from redeeming Optimum Points:

For reference, here’s all the fine print from Shoppers:
Spend 50,000 points and get up to $85 OFF* PLUS get $20 worth of points back. That’s a $105 savings value! OR spend 95,000 points and get up to $170 OFF* PLUS get $40 worth of points back. That’s a $210 savings value!
