Thanks for this info! Great idea to use the optimum points! I'll hold out for another promo weekend I also didn't know about the pepto thing! VERY good to know
I hit up dollarama today again and picked more jute bags, i love them! I also found some fuschia colored ones for my BMs. I also picked up these hand sanitizers at bath and body works for 1$ each + $10 off for spending more than $40 (picked up a few other things). Pics attached!!
The Avon deal is great! I did not purchase my after sun aloe there but I got it free!
I went shopping to Shoppers Drug Mart when they have a 20X the points and I used the points last weekend. They had a spending point event so I was able to redeem 80 000 optimum points for 200$. They have Life brand Aloe tube (in a medium size) for 3.99 each but that was "free" for me. I was also able to purchase some meds (Ind. wrapped Gravol for instance) and insect repellant wipes. They also sell mini bottle of Advil and Tylenol (was not able to find them in the store aisles) but they are at the front, near the cash registers.
Just to let you know as I was not aware, I explained the destination wedding situation to a pharmacist since I wanted to bring some Pepto Bismol with me. She told me that it was not a great idea since this med is interacting with a lot of other popular meds and guests are propably not aware of it. They have a lot of other meds "safer" for the guests.
So If you have many points with your Optimum card you can have a great deal there, specially if you collect your points when they 20X them!
