If you’re an avid Air Miles collector you’re aware of the recurring flyer promo of 100 Air Miles for buying $200 in Sobeys Gift Cards. (Alternatively, you can get a gas discount). The June Air Miles email newsletter contains a heads up that this promo will be happening June 13-15, 2019. This one’s a no brainer if you shop at Sobeys, Foodland, Lawtons or buy gas at a Shell connected to a Needs, Sobeys Express or Fast Fuel.
Two other upcoming promotions are noteworthy if you plan to buy something from Staples or Apple.
The newsletter mentions a Staples 20x bonus for purchases both in-store or online of at least $100 June 14-16. See the coupon for full terms and conditions. Staples is both an Air Miles partner and a store on Airmilesshops. The 20x would be based on the regular earning rate for Staples which is 1 mile per $40.
On the main Air Miles website several featured offers appear at the top of the page. It’s annoying because these are not included in the regular offers list. And the selection of featured offers can change when you refresh the page. I see 5 at the moment and the 4th one reads “Get Ready – 20x Miles** is coming. From June 13-14, 2019 shop Apple and get 20x the Miles with your purchases, including iPhone XR and iPhone XS”. When you click “Learn More” it just takes you to the page for Apple on the Airmilesshops website. The regular earning rate on Apple purchases through Airmilesshops is 1 mile per $20.
It’s worth checking Airmilesshops on June 13th to see if any other stores are offering 20x the miles.
Note the MegaMiles bonus should be posting very soon so make sure your preferred Cash or Dream mile settings are in place.
