For the first conversion, you will get 8000 Optimum Points for a minimum 1,500 RBC Rewards Points.
Thereafter for every 500 RP, you will receive 2,500 OP.
I have an RBC Signature Rewards Visa Card, so I get one point for every dollar spent.
Generally, you get 10 OP for every dollar you spend.
And this is how the rewards are awarded under the Optimum Card system:
8,000 OP - $ 10.00
22,000 OP – $ 30.00
38,000 OP – $ 60.00
50,000 OP – $ 85.00
95,000 OP – $ 170.00
Then there are special shopping days when you claim $ 200.00, or even $ 250.00, for 95,000 OP.
Smart shoppers know that the best time to shop at Shoppers is when they offer special promotions with doubling up of OP, or Bonus OP.
Let’s do the math:
To get 1,500 RP, I would have spent $ 1,500.00
1,500 RP= 8,000 OP = $ 10.00
Therefore, this might not be the best offer out there.
Unless, you convert and collect the Bonus points to bring it to a total of 95,000 OP.
