[UPDATE: the Mega Miles promo has been postponed] Mega Miles and Shop The Block are the two major Air Miles promotions that happen once a year. They are a great way to build your Air Miles balance and put you closer to Onyx status. Last year Shop The Block suffered a devaluation, however Mega Miles looks to be unchanged with a 1000 mile bonus for shopping at 5 different Air Miles partners.
The information about the forthcoming promo was in an email invitation to apply for a BMO Air Miles MasterCard. One of the Mega Miles offers will involve earning bonus miles for using the credit card at certain Air Miles partners (spend $250, get 200 miles, spend $500, get 400 miles) .
Although we won’t be able to see the rest of the offers until the promo starts, they will likely be similar to previous iterations of Mega Miles. In Nova Scotia, we’ll be looking for coupons from Sobeys, Foodland, Lawtons, Pharmasave, Shell, Irving etc.
If you intend to make any purchases at stores like Staples or Kent and can delay them for a bit, that may help you reach five offers.
My Air Miles account is very low on Dream miles at the moment so I’ll be keen to see all the offers when they’re released in a couple of weeks.
