I just got home from shopping at Safeway. I spent $99.43 and got 290 Airmiles.

I wish all of you out in the East were able to get the same deals. I don't know why Safeway only does Airmiles out west but I sure am happy that they do.

Thanks for the website Carina!!

I'm a big fan of converting HBC points to Air Miles, especially since technically, I work at Zellers (I actually work at a privately owned pharmacy in Zellers, but they still consider me an associate). Because of that, I get a 10% discount when using my HBC credit card, plus the double HBC points for using the card. Just for buying little stuff like soap, paper towel, etc, I average 5-10 Air Miles/week.

Something that doesn't have much to do with Air Miles, but can help for those of us in the Maritimes is Irving/Circle K. Sobeys gives out Air Miles (so I always shop there), and they have the FastFuel thing going on again, which gets you a discount at Irving based off of how much you spend at Sobeys. Also, any Irving with a Circle K store gives CAA Dollars for gas and merchandise, which can be used to pay for anything at CAA, provided you have a membership. It's not much (only $0.02/litre) but I figure over the course of a year, you can probably get enough to pay off your membership, and maybe a few bucks on a package or something.

Hey guys, I just found another way to get airmiles. It's a survey rewards site.

I am not even going to hint at getting a referal from me...lol Only one airmile is given for a referal so its not worth the bother. But you get 5 airmiles just for signing up and the amount you get per survey varies.

I joined 2 days ago and I have the 5 for signing up plus one for a survery that took under 1 min.

Another thing I like is that you can cash out your rewards to get the airmiles code whenever you want ( although they do recommend banking them till you have enough to make it worthwhile)

Its called PanelCloud.

FAQ
1. Why is a valid phone number required when registering?
You need a valid phone to activate your account. It is for us to stop spammers and generally limit one account per person. This ensures each one of our panelists are who they say they are. You will receive an automated call asking you to confirm your number, or a text message asking you text back. The entire activation process takes less than a minute.

2. Do I get AIR MILES® right away when I sign up?
Yes. Once you have confirmed your email address + phone number, your account will be activated automatically and you can redeem your AIR MILES® right away.

3. How do I earn AIR MILES® by completing studies?
Each study launched has an AIR MILES® denomination associated with it. It is usually either 5,10,20 or 50 AIR MILES®. When you complete a study, you will receive the respective denomination.

4. What is the difference between banking my AIR MILES® and receiving them immediately?
Once you complete a study, you can “bank” your AIR MILES® meaning the denomination associated with that study is credited to your account. With this option, you can hold out until a time of your liking and “cash” out all the AIR MILES® you have “banked”.

When you choose to redeem immediately, as soon as you complete a study, you will get the AIR MILES® in the amount of the denomination associated with the study right away.

5. If I have banked AIR MILES® and I change my settings to redeem immediately, do I lose my banked AIR MILES®?
No. All previously banked AIR MILES® stay with your account. If you change your settings, any subsequent AIR MILES® are redeemed immediately.

6. How often do I get invited to studies?
At the very least, you will get one invite a week. As PanelCloud picks up more and more researchers, expect that number to increase. If there is a spike in demand for opinions in your specific demographic or area, you may expect more invites.

7. How many AIR MILES® do I get per study?
It varies depending on length of study or time to complete a study. Expect usually to be rewarded 1 AIR MILE® for each question. So if a study rewards 10 AIR MILES® for completion, it will be roughly a 10 question study.

8. When I redeem AIR MILES® do they go to my AIR MILES® account automatically?
No. We receive a list of Deposit Numbers and Security Codes when we buy AIR MILES®. More information of redeeming AIR MILES® can be found here.
Anyways I just wanted to throw the info out there for anyone that wants to give it a whirl, and to stress I am not getting anything out of posting this.

We ordered our first 7 day WDW pass yesterday.
We started to be serious collectors on Jan 13th, had about 600 airmiles at that point and made it up to 2288 in just over 3 weeks. We shopped at Safeway but got a lot of the points by doing the American Express upgrade. I am so stoked about this, I think we may make our goal of 20,000 by Summer of 2012 so we don't have to buy any WDW or US/IOA tickets out of pocket. It is like free money, even if we do spend a bit more at Safeway it is worth it.

Spent about $60 in the past two weeks for 173 air miles. Go me. I should have 5000 total by the end of the month.

Just a heads up to everyone collecting air miles: I received a second automated call declaring I won 100,000 air miles. I recognized it instantly and hung up on them. If I continued with the call, they'll ask for your credit card number.

The phone number was 403-674-2323. You can look it up on google to get more info on it. I'm really unsure how they got my number in the first place.

There is a message on the AM homepage stating something to the effect that they will not contact you by phone if you have won something.

Forgot to mention....there is a printable coupon on the AM site for a bonus 25 miles on a $35 purchase at Metro. It's valid for the month of Feb.

I went on Saturday and got my groceries....divided them into 3 orders of $40 each and got the 25 bonus for each order plus it was 2X the miles for using my Amex on the weekend. Shame that that is a good deal for groceries here. In total I got 126 miles...there were bonuses on a few items as well.

I hope they add them to my account by Friday. I need to redeem for some tix and just want to see 10,000 on my account.

Our Safeway had a buy $200 get 300 Airmiles offer this week. DW went shopping this afternoon and with all of the other bonus offers in this weeks flyer she got 477 Airmiles. I think that is the most Airmiles we've ever received in a single transaction.
