one of my unspoken goals this year was to try to hit the top tier of the buyers medication Mart (SDM) optimal benefits Program – as well as I’m pleased to reveal that as of this past weekend, I did!
This was no little task provided my No-Buy. For those who are not familiar with SDM or Optimum points – SDM is the primary drugstore right here in Canada* – they offer whatever from diapers to hair dye to granola bars. Besides drugstore makeup, SDM likewise bring high end cosmetics brands in their appeal shop including Guerlain, Chanel, Clarins, Shiseido, Smashbox, Benefit, Lancome, Clinique, Anna Sui, etc.
SDM uses a loyalty program where for each dollar spent, 10 points is earned. These points can then be redeemed for nearly anything in the store as follows:
Technically speaking, to reach 95,000 optimal Points, it indicates costs $9,500 at SDM! But in reality, nobody does this since SDM regularly uses perk points – some perk points are connected to certain brand uses (“buy 2 Revlon lipsticks, get 3000 perk points”) however the much better perk points are the multiplier offers, such as: spend $50, get 20x the points. Leveraging just the 20x the points offer, it indicates one can reach 95,000 points by costs $475 (redeemable for $170 of complimentary products). That’s remarkable when you believe about it as a percentage: it’s like getting 36% of what you spent back in complimentary products.
I was hovering at 60,000 points for ages as well as had all however provided up on the possibility of achieving 95,000 points this year. But then, the SDM mobile app introduced in the summer. At first, I wasn’t so disciplined to inspect the app for uses / vouchers however I soon realized that it provided me special uses based on my previous purchases / buying habits. I got a great deal of product certain uses in addition to lower thresholds to receiving 20x perk points (last week I had a spend $20 get 20x offer). Once vouchers appear on my app, all I do is tons them onto my card:
For those of you who gather optimal Points, I desire you to download the app – that’s truly exactly how I was able to accomplish the greatest tier fairly quickly as well as swiftly (my weekend purchases that pushed me over to the top tier included razor blades / shaving foam for the bf, as well as feminine products for moi).
So, earning points is one thing – however redeeming is another! One might just redeem the 95,000 points at deal with value for $170 of complimentary product. But, those in the know, save them up for SDM redemption events! That’s right, SDM offer special “Spend Your Points” days that boosts the value of the points to ensure that instead of $170 worth of complimentary stuff, it’s worth even MORE!
The a lot of I’ve ever seen was the incredibly redemption event where $170 was worth $250. Typically, the top tier would be boosted to be worth $220 as well as there must be a “Spend Your Points” event before the end of the year.
So, I’m formulating my desire listing to redeem these points before the end of the year (yup, one more No-Buy loophole!) – on the top of my listing are (some of these are from my lemmings post):
Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Oil – $32
Clinique Cheek Pop in Nude, Fig or Heather Pop – $24
Clinique Pop Lip Colour as well as Primer in Melon Pop – $21
Benefit Rockateur Box o’ Powder blush – $36
Guerlain Meteorites in 03 intense – $71
Anna Sui Lipstick G in 350 Powder Pink – $29
Grand total: $213
* Apologies for non-Canadians, please don’t be jealous of our incredibly remarkable loyalty program. You people get all the breaks with remarkable discount rates as well as gain access to to great deals of brands we don’t have, as well as complimentary shipping from so lots of sites. (that last line doesn’t apply to Australians – you people get shafted when it pertains to makeup!)
I just wished to share my enjoyment with you people – any individual else sitting on a lot of points to redeem? What’s on your desire list?
