2.    Bonus Points Events: 20X Points when you spend $X These events run about once a month and are your best way to earn extra points. The best part is, you CAN use coupons to reduce your out of pocket (OOP) expense. For Example: Shoppers is offering 20X points when you spend $75 or more. You have to have a subtotal of $75 or more before coupons. Then once it is subtotaled  use coupons to get your OOP down. You will get 20X points on the subtotaled amount. *Most cashiers will tell you that it must be $75 AFTER coupons, but this is NOT the case. Simply tell them not to worry about it, put the tansaction through and then check your receipt at the end. The cashiers as Always shocked to see the points. Free Product Coupons DO NOT count towards your total. To make it easier to track your total on the 20X pts events, leave your FPCs for another shopping trip.
