Do you have Onyx status with Air Miles? And do you know anyone is not yet a member of the Air Miles reward program? If so, you’re in luck because Air Miles has just introduced what they’re calling the Air Miles Referral Program Pilot.
Onyx collectors (members who earned 6000 miles in a year) can refer up to 15 new Air Miles collectors by September 1, 2020 using their unique referral link. If you’re Onyx, you should have received an email about it, otherwise you can enter your collector number here to get your link.
For each new collector who earns at least one mile by December 31, 2020, you’ll get a 50 mile referral bonus, while the new collector gets 25 bonus miles.
The new collector can get another 25 bonus miles by opting in to receive Air Miles emails.
Terms and Conditions
You can read the full terms and conditions on the program website but I’ll include them here as well:
AIR MILES® Referral Program Pilot:
Existing AIR MILES Onyx Collectors whose Collector Accounts are in active status (each the “Referrer”) can enter their Collector Number at referrals.airmiles.ca (the “Site”) to generate a unique referral link until 11:59:59 p.m. ET on September 1, 2020. For the purposes of this Pilot Program, Collectors qualified for Onyx status by earning 6,000 or more AIR MILES Reward Miles in 2019 and/or in 2020, as of July 31, 2020, as determined by the AIR MILES Reward Program. Limit of one unique referral link per Collector Number.
The Referrer can share this unique referral link via email, using the “copy link” widget on the Site, to individuals with whom the Referrer has a personal or family relationship, as defined in the Electronic Commerce Protection Regulations of Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation (in which a personal relationship involves direct, voluntary two-way communications and sharing of interests, experiences and opinions, and a family relationship involves individuals who are related to one another through marriage, common-law partnership or a parent-child relationship). It is the Referrer’s responsibility to ensure that they use only the email address(es) of those friends or family members who have expressly consented to being emailed, and with whom the Referrer has a personal or family relationship. The Referrer can also share this unique referral link on their Facebook timeline and/or Twitter feed using the icons listed on the Site.
The distribution of the Referrer’s unique referral link is at their discretion, subject to the following: The AIR MILES Reward Program reserves the right to cancel and void any unique referral link and all associated entries which it deems, in its sole discretion, to be used or associated with content that is deemed inappropriate. Without limiting the foregoing, such content includes all forms of pornography, inappropriate language and content that incites hate, is demeaning, depreciates the value of the AIR MILES name, brand, products, services or trademarks, or incites discrimination of any and all forms.
Any person who clicks on one of these shared links, follows the online instructions to enroll in the AIR MILES Reward Program, and clicks on the “Submit” button on the enrollment landing page becomes the linked referee (the “Referee”) of this referral offer.
A qualified Referee can only be generated using a Referrer’s unique referral link, shared by either email or other appropriate methods provided through referrals.airmiles.ca. Referees cannot already have an AIR MILES Collector Account and can only be matched with one Referrer. Once a Referee has followed the online instructions to enroll in the AIR MILES Reward Program and has clicked the “Submit” button, they will be matched with the Referrer whose unique link drove them to that enrollment landing page.
In the event it is found that the Referrer or the Referee does not comply with the AIR MILES Referral Program rules listed herein and below, then any AIR MILES Reward Miles the Referrer or the Referee has received for participating in the AIR MILES Referral Program will be withdrawn.
The Referrer will get 50 Bonus Miles and the qualified Referee will get 25 Bonus Miles when the qualified Referee: i) clicks on one of these shared unique referral link and follows the online instructions to enroll in the AIR MILES Reward Program and clicks on the “Submit” button on the enrollment landing page by 11:59:59 p.m. ET on September 1, 2020; and, ii) gets at least one AIR MILES Reward Mile in connection with eligible purchases made at AIR MILES Partners (including online through airmilesshops.ca) with the Collector Number associated with the qualified Referee’s new Collector.
This is a nice little incentive to encourage any non-collectors in your circle of friends and family to get on the Air Miles bandwagon, especially now that the Mega Miles promo is just around the corner. If you do find someone interested in signing up, be sure to give them a good summary of the program, especially the difference between Cash and Dream miles. Perhaps include a quick rundown of the better recurring promotions, both nationwide and in the flyers of local Air Miles partners, to help them get up to speed and earning lots of miles.
