Planning a shopping trip and making a big list of beauty items to buy makes me one giddy Birdy! Going shopping for those items makes me happy, and playing with each new product when I get home is super fun! But knowing that I got everything for only $25 is the sweetest icing on the cake!
There were two options:
- Redeem 50,000 worth of points, get $85 off a purchase and $15 worth of bonus Optimum points
- Redeem 95,000 worth of points, get $170 off a purchase and $30 worth of bonus Optimum points
Exhibit A: I use my Optimum card for EVERY. SINGLE. PURCHASE (no matter how small the cost). You know the ol' saying "every penny counts"? Well I live by this same saying when it comes to Shoppers Optimum Points.
Exhibit B: I load my personalized offers obsessively each week and I'll often be persuaded to try one brand over another if it comes with bonus points.
Exhibit C: I'll try to make "bulk" trips and buy all of my toiletries or other necessities at once, on a day that allows me to qualify for five, 10 or 20 times the points if I spend a certain amount. I am mortified to admit, but I once went a couple of days without deodorant while waiting for a bonus day to arrive...
I managed to snag $230 worth of beauty items and the satisfaction/massive smile on my face when I got home was 100% worth every bonus point! Check out all of the goodies I picked up:
