How do I load offers?
If you have the PC Optimum app or online account, simply view all your offers and they will be loaded to your account the next time you shop.
Once you have loaded your offers, you’ll be able to redeem them through the purchase of the qualifying products at any participating Shoppers Drug Mart Inc. or Loblaws Inc. banners
Can I view offers on my phone?
Yes. You can download the PC Optimum app or view the mobile version of pcoptimum.ca on your phone.
How do I know when I have new offers?
When you sign up to receive emails or push notifications from the PC Optimum program, you’ll get a reminder when new offers become available. New offers will appear in the “Offers” section of your account on pcoptimum.ca and joefresh.com/ca.
Do I still have to load offers?
Yes. To load offers from your Joe Fresh account, simply view your offers on the Joe Fresh app or the PC Optimum app or in your Joe Fresh online account.
Do my offers expire?
Yes, all offers have an expiration date. You can find the expiry date of each offer by clicking on the offer and viewing the details. The terms of each offer, including restrictions, are also outlined in the details. Most offers expire around 7 days from the time they become available. Your offers appear in your “Offers” section until they expire. If you’d like to save an offer for next week, simply tap or click to see the offer details and choose “Save for next week”.
What if I forget to load my offers?
If you forget to load your offers, you will not be able to earn the points associated with those offers once they expire. To get the most out of the program, make loading offers part of your weekly shopping routine. That way, you’ll never miss out on something great. If you’d like, we can send you email reminders to load your offers. To do so, just add your email address to your account under “My Account > Settings”.
How long do earned offers stay in my offers section?
Once you use the offer within the specified offer date and earn the associated points, it disappears from your available offers. You may view any offers you've earned in the “Transactions” section of your PC Optimum account.
When I load an offer, can I use it in any store?
Most of your offers can be used once at any participating Shoppers Drug Mart location or Loblaws store across Canada, as well as Joe Fresh stores where offers apply. You can use the store locator to find a participating store near you.
What is an in-store offer?
These are offers only available if you shop in-store at participating Joe Fresh locations.
How do I know how many points I have?
When you sign in to your Joe Fresh account, your points balance appears on the PC Optimum page. You may also view your points balance online at pcoptimum.ca, or on the PC Optimum app. Your points balance is also printed on your receipt every time you shop with your PC Optimum card.
Points redemption is determined by the order subtotal, and not the final total. The points do not cover the shipping or tax. If you over redeem on the subtotal, you are willfully forfeiting the excess of points.
I'm missing points from a transaction, what should I do?
If you are using the PC Optimum app:
Go to the “Points” section of your app and locate the transaction you are missing points from. Click on that transaction and select “Points Inquiry”. Submit the points inquiry form and we’ll look into your missing points right away.
If you are online at pcoptimum.ca:
Go to “Account > Points > Points Inquiry”. Submit the points inquiry form and we’ll look into your missing points right away. Remember, if you placed an order as a guest you won’t receive any PC OPTIMUM points. In order to receive points of any kind, ensure you're checking out while logged into your linked account.
Can I donate my points to charity?
Yes. You can donate your points to the President’s Choice Children’s Charity, or one of the other pre-selected charities that have partnered with the SHOPPERS LOVE YOU Program. Want to learn more? Contact us for additional information.
How long does it take my balance to update after a transaction?
Your points balance takes 2-3 business days to update after a transaction is made using your PC Optimum card. If you’re using a PC Financial debit or credit card, the points you earned as part of the PC Optimum program will be applied to your balance right away. However, it may take a few days or longer for your balance to reflect those earned points. Using a PC Financial Mastercard ® earns users 10 bonus points for every dollar spent.
Are the points deducted from my account if I return an item?
Your account balance may be reduced by the number of points earned for that purchase, including any bonus points.
WHY AM I NOT RECEIVING MY PERKS FOR JOE FRESH AS A PC INSIDER?
Points earned through the PC Insiders program may not be combined with any in-store, online or personalized bonus points offers on the same purchase. If your purchase is eligible for an in-store, online, personalized bonus offer of a set amount of points or a points multiplier, you would receive either your PC Insiders points OR the in-store, online or personalized bonus points offer; whichever is the greater number of points, but not both.
Blackout periods apply for Joe Fresh branded products during Black Friday and Boxing Day promotional periods, and may occur at any time from November 16 - December 6 and from December 26 - January 9 each year. During these periods you will not earn points through the PC Insiders program for Joe Fresh branded items purchased online at JoeFresh.ca, at Loblaw banner stores or at Joe Fresh stores. Blackout dates may vary each year; we will advise you of the exact dates via email leading up to the holiday season each year.
