About once every 18 months, the most magical, wonderful thing happens: I am able to redeem my Shoppers Optimum points. And if I'm really lucky, I can do so on a weekend of increased points.
So, today I got $200 worth of products for free! It's an amazing plan, this Optimum thing. Why people don't all use it is baffling to me. I also have it on my credit card so the points add up so fast.
There are very few things I like more than something that is free. I don't even really care what it is - if it's free, I become instantly a little happier. Fashion Week is great for freebies, but all that stuff, while great, are not things I chose. At Shoppers, it's literally like I've been given $200 in cash and am set to wander around the store and throw anything in the cart.
