Recently there has been a lot of chatter of the Shoppers Drug Mart Optimum Loyalty Program coming to an end. This was due to the terms and conditions stating the termination of the program was to take place on December 31, 2016.
Today I found a new notice on the Shoppers Drug Mart website about new terms and conditions after December 31, 2016.
Great news! The Optimum program will live on!
As listed on the Optimum site the Program’s terms and conditions that will come into effect on December 31, 2016 11:59 p.m. will remain unchanged except the following:
“Section 42: There will be no specific end date to the Program and 45 days advance notice will be given in the event that the Program ends.
Section 43: Members will have the ability to redeem points for 90 days following any future end date.
Section 44: The first sentence that states that the Program will be extended or terminated with 30 days notice will be removed, as it will no longer be applicable.”
And if you continue to use your card in 2017, you will automatically accept these new terms and conditions.
I know quite a few people who are going to be happy to hear this news, even I was pleased to discover it.
