    Can you transfer your dream miles to another members or are they stuck in your account?

    They charge you 15 cents per mile transferred plus a $10 service fee plus tax. Ridiculous.

    Yes, not possible to get that many with just one air mile for every $20. To go anywhere you really do need a credit card. We charge anything and everything on our Air Miles MasterCard and get 400 miles a month just from that. With the card we have we also get a 40% discount on flights. Last time we went to FL, our three tickets cost $400 in taxes instead of $2,000.

    I have not added or used Dream Miles since I got the first 15. Inactivity for a year means those AM are gone-unless now they are stuck in perpetuity (or a really good turn of points offers makes me cross to the Dream side again).

    While I like the AM promise to respond via social media 24/7, are those agents going to be Canadian or is an international call centre going to be on duty once local hours in Toronto are over for the day?

    The Metro rumour surfaced late last year and not long afterwards a joint Metro/Air Miles e-mail came out about the program and Metro also did a solo e-mail saying the program is continuing at the store chain.

    Over the past 2-3 years Airmiles has become a shell of it's former self..

    Safeway was the cornerstone of amassing points and the sale to Sobeys destroyed that.

    BMO CC's used to allow 25% discount on all flights. that was changed to just North America.

    Tickets redeemed on Airmiles for Air Canada flights used to be Economy Flex tickets which allowed free baggage and better seat selection, reduced 2 years ago to Cheap Tango class tickets.

    Airmiles increased amount of miles required for flights 2 years ago with the explanation that fee's would be reduced. Savings seen is almost negligible.

    Just a heads up to keep an eye on your AM Cash accounts. I received this email today:

    This note is to make you aware that through our regular fraud monitoring processes, we have identified irregular activity occurring within a small number of in-store AIR MILES Cash transactions, where Cash Miles have been stolen. The personal information of all Collectors remains protected and has not been compromised. We are working diligently to resolve the situation and have already contacted our retail Partners, the police and the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre.

    While this fraudulent activity impacts only Cash miles and not Dream miles, the security of Collector Miles is of utmost importance to us and therefore we are sending this update to all Collectors. In a desire to protect AIR MILES Cash Miles, we have temporarily removed the AIR MILES Cash option for in-store purchases. Collectors are still able to redeem Cash Miles for e-vouchers online at www.airmiles.ca. These reward options include brands such as Staples, Starbucks, Cineplex, the Bay, and more.

    As we work through this issue, we ask that you continue to protect the security of your AIR MILES Account by maintaining the confidentiality of your Collector and PIN number.
