Here’s a bit of good news. Remember the annual Air Miles Mega Miles promotion that was supposed to begin back in March? Understandably, the pandemic caused it to be put on hold. However, the promo website has now come back to life with new dates and information.
The promotion will run from August 13 to September 10, 2020. There is no mention of a preview of the offers, but according to the Mega Miles website, it will follow a similar format to previous Mega Miles promos:
- Use 3 offers at 3 different Air Miles partners to get 300 Air Miles
- Use 5 offers at 5 different Air Miles partners to get 1000 Air Miles
There’s not a whole lot to do in advance of seeing the offers, but there are a few things you can consider.
If you do not have any Air Miles in the “Cash” category, consider changing your account preferences now so you can earn some in the meantime to potentially use to complete one of the offers. All of the miles currently in your account will stay where there are – only new miles earned will go into Cash instead of Dream.
Another thought is to delay any online purchases, if possible. It’s very likely that buying through the Airmilesshops.ca shopping portal will be one of the Mega Miles offers in some form, so perhaps hold off on ordering from one of their participating stores.
We don’t know yet how easy or difficult it will be to complete 3 or 5 offers this year, but if you’ve got family members who have not yet become active Air Miles collectors, now is probably a good time to get them on board.
It’s great to see the return of Mega Miles. Promotions like this one and Shop The Block are a terrific way to boost your Air Miles balance and get you thinking about how you’d like to use your miles in the future.
