    Thanks @lilo0003 I feel the same about chasing deals that don't have a real payoff. Time is money, gas isn't free, and the rewards just aren't there this year imo. Like you, I did offers (2) that made sense for me and were not out of line with my usual shopping.
    Have a great life!

    When I read spend $100.00 at Staples I laughed. Unless I was buying 4 new printer cartridges maybe, but otherwise Staples is not a store I frequent.

    As a family logically we would buy more than a single person, so the 3 best qualifying offers for us were the Shell gas, and the two Constructive adhesive offers from Lowes and Rona.
    Minimal $ spent for products used/needed.

    Sobeys 5x the AM on $50.00 spend worked out well, combined with digital BAM offers on the same shop and a stock up on litter.

    Upcoming offer at Rexall spend $40.00, get 20 BAM will pair up with refilling my supplements and Metro Fresh2Go spend $25.00, get 50BAM comes in handy for our extended family get together ( we're bringing the pizza! )

    Gift cards may be in the wheelhouse for the BOM opt-in offer but I'm still pondering whether that is worth my while.

    All in all, this promo has been the least attractive. I hope they come up with a better one next time or they will lose participants.
    @walkonby - It's great if it works out for you if the payout after all expenses is legit

    One year I did the Staples offer - I bought a digital voice recorder to replace my old one that had broken - the timing worked out. As it turns out, I could actually manage the $100 spend for this promo - more actually as they have the cell phone I'm planning to buy. But I don't want to give my local store the business after a couple of recent incidents of poor customer service from one of the managers. Don't have time to go to another store and not all that motivated tbh. Considered doing an online order but not even sure if/how the STB coupon could be applied.

    The IGA here is having a promo on GCs - 25AMs wub $100 in GCs. It's tempting but like you, I'm not sure it's worth my while.

    I definitely agree - this is the worse promo they've had. Don't know if they got greedy or just didn't do the math.

    I'm not on twitter and don't do a lot of FBing but I'll think about it - maybe have someone post it for me. But as I said elsewhere, it's the partners coming up with the offers, not AirMiles.

    @Giseledta - I'm with you. I spoke with AMs about this and they said each partner decides how they want to handle it.

    If you have space, they freeze and reheat fine.

    Like last year, the LCBO offers have changed to a new set for Dec. Unlike last year but like the Nov. set, there are still none where the required purchase is under ~$25

    Our freezers are kinda jammed atm, but if there was room, and if these pizzas were just for us I'd place the slices in smaller containers and freeze. Since I'm taking these ones to a family gathering ( pre-Christmas get together ) I wanted them to be freshly made.
    Today I placed the order and paid up front, the 50 BAM went right on the receipt. The Deli girls checked to see if there was a way for me to pay the sale price, but no go since these are for the weekend.

    I am DONE now...All 7 of my AM sponsor shops are completed.

    Unfortunately, AM is what it is, an umbrella loyalty program in which quite a bit, such as how promptly to post miles and how serious to be about doing so accurately, can be at the whim of each partner to varying degrees. It's probably never going to work significantly better because AM has limited leverage with the partners, especially the main ones for the simple reason that AM needs the likes of Shell, Metro, etc. more than they need AM.

    they always fix them after the fact.
    never have an issue, but I almost always have to call.
    We have 3 airmiles cards in my house and we all do these promos.
