    Well I think this may be the straw that breaks my back with Air Miles.

    In spite of all the reductions and changes (for the worse) AM's has made through the years, it still worked for us. We were still able to collect a lot through Safeway and their pharmacy, and combined with the 25% MC discount, I found it still a viable program.

    With the recent ruling in Alberta banning reward programs on prescriptions though, and this future reduction through MC, I can no longer see a reason to hang in there.

    It's a bit ironic that change outside the program's control has pushed us away, knowing so many angry collectors dropped out over the years due to reduced AM valuation, and difficulty collecting.

    I wonder how long this program can continue without positive change? Admittedly, not knowing the ins and outs of most other reward programs out there, it seems to me it can't work much longer.

    Not unexpected as when they were forced to back down on the cancellation attempt they did announce that they were going to adjust their pricing to compensate.


    Funny though, I did receive an email from them about the other day offering an extra 75AM bonus if I got 150 AMs in the next couple of weeks to help me towards maintaing my Gold status next year.

    They forgot many of us have received 2 previous emails saying we were good through to 2019. One email could be a mistake but 2 months apart!!!!! CLASS ACCOUNT LAWSUIT ANYONE! LOL!

    No special offers for me. I guess because I made onyx months ago.. and have earned almost 4k AM in November already (Thanks AMEX Reserve Card!).

    Shop the Block is back.. not too difficult to use 7 offers. Much easier in the east (Ontario) with all they're Sobeys/Foodland offers.

    So great to see that the west gets screwed on the Airmiles promotion, again! <insert sarcasm font>

    It won't be easy, or cheap to do this one, as many offers are spend $100 and only good for 3 days.

    I see they have a new Shop The Block offer for HBC "Get 10 Bonus Miles when you use 95 Cash Miles for a $10 Hudson's Bay eGift Card; Get 20 Miles when you use 190 Cash Miles for a $20 eGift Card; Get 50 Miles when you use 475 Cash Miles for a $50 eGift Card".
    For the Airmilesshops one it says "

    Offer valid from November 14 – December 14, 2017. Get 150 AIR MILES® Reward Miles on purchases of $20 CDN or more, excluding shipping, duty and taxes made at 3 or more different participating online stores. Offer is cumulative on purchases made at all participating online stores. Offer is valid on the purchase of gift cards only at online stores who regularly offer Miles on gift card purchases. See airmilesshops.ca for details".

    I read this as just needing to spend a minimum of $20 at 3 shops. Am I reading this right? Any one know which stores you can buy gift cards and earn airmiles?

    The HBC egiftcards offer is for redeeming your AM for a HBC egiftcard. So you are not buying anything.
