Ooops, almost forgot. For all you Canadian gals, Shopper's is having a thing today where if you spend $50 or more, you get 20 times the points!
It's for today (June 1st) only, and you have to go here to sign up (have your Optimum card ready) and print out a certificate, which you must present to the cashier. PLUS, if you do this, on June 10th & 11th, you can redeem 40,000 points for $100 off your purchase, which is $25 more than what the points system usually gives you. I know I'll be hitting up a Shopper's later today*!
I'd like to think that I am personally responsible for this cool deal. Because Shoppers saw me hoarding away my points and thought "oh shit, we'd better make her spend them quick or she'll clear us out in one fell swoop". (No, I will not tell you how many I have -- I am not ready to admit that to the world just yet.)
*I'm sorry, bank account.
