Shoppers Bonus Points Day

This weekend Shoppers is having a bonus redemption event where 50,000 Optimum points will get you $100 worth of stuff, up from the regular $85, while 90,000 points gets you $200, up from $170.

I have just over 50,000 points so that means $100 worth of stuff for me. While I will have to get some boring stuff like a new toothbrush and paper towels, I am looking forward to picking up some fun stuff too, like new conditioner, mascara and eye shadow.

I’m really intrigued by Maybelline’s new Color Tattoo eye shadows so hopefully I’ll be able to pick one of those up. Or maybe I’ll get one of the 101 different BB creams that are out there. I’ve heard some good things about the Marcelle one though I’m a bit disappointed that it doesn’t have an SPF in it.

Anyway, I’m sure I’ll find some great stuff, including at least a couple of items worthy of reviews. If you’re going to be spending your points this weekend, be sure to check out this flyer.


  1. So tempted to spend my points this weekend! I've been saving up and have over 100,000.. so I might cash them in for a new perfume this weekend! I feel like this isn't the best promo code though.. have you seen higher (ie more extra value?)

    You must try the maybelline colour tattoo cream shadows, they're fantastic. I was tempted by the bouncy blush and not that impressed. Cool texture, but not great pigmentation. Interested in hearing your opinion if you do get it!

  2. The past couple of years Shoppers' has run a mega-mega redemption at the very end of November/start of December where 95,000 points gets you $250 worth of stuff, so an extra $80 (you could also redeem 50,000 for $125). That promo is the best points-for-dollars that Shoppers offers but they only seem to offer it once a year.

    I did pick up one of the Maybelline Colour Tattoo shadows and I'm looking forward to trying it out tonight. I'm really curious to see how long it really lasts for.
