Doubt it. Safeway deals are most likely decided nationwide. We've had a Super Walmart here since last July - hasn't made a bit of difference in the grocery prices that I've seen at any of the stores.

Got a email coupon today for "Spend $100, Get 100 AM" from Safeway. All excited as I'm shopping tonight until I realized it's only good from the 22nd -24th. Safeway is closed on both Friday and Sunday so it's only valid on Saturday.

Oh well 100 AMs is worth is so I'll work around it and try and get there on Saturday.

So I have decided to start collecting Airmiles again in hopes of earning enough for at least one of our Universal tickets.
Ontario isn't as great for them as some other provinces but you can convert your HBC points to Airmiles so I will try that too.

You can also get bonus airmiles on Maytage, Amana, KitchenAid appliances.

Thanks for the link!

Unfortunately it won't accept my fridge & stove, or the washer & dryer. Turns out they have to be purchases after June 2010, and mine were a bit before that. Darn! LOL

I went to Safeway today and got 340 Airmiles and I spent $114. I am saving up for Adult Disney pass for our November trip.

I received some airmiles/Safeway coupons in the mail recently and they certainly appeared to be directed at me! There were about half a dozen of them and all but one of the items I buy on a very regular basis. Did anyone else receive something like this? Some people are leary of club cards and airmiles cards as they track your spending habits but if they are going to send me coupons I can use - I don't mind if they know my brands. One coupon was literally 20 Airmiles for buying one bag of Doritos! With the ones I got, I spent $115 and got 75 airniles total. Not too bad.

Just thought I'ld let everyone know that we recieved our third 5 day base ticket from Air Miles on Wednesday. Not bad - over 6500 Air Miles in 6 months.

I've received those a few times now and they're great! I normally get them for milk, toilet paper, pop, and a few other random things that I buy at Metro on a regular basis. There's normally also a generic one that's 20 points for spending $20. The first time I got it, I'll admit it felt a little creepy, but then I had the same thought as you...who cares if they know my brands...it makes more sense to get coupons for the brands I buy most often!

I changed my insurance carrier and with Royal and Sun Alliance Insurance I now get 1 air mile for every $20 in premiums...who knew? It was fun when the little information sheet fell out of the envelope. I've signed up already.

Just received two 7-Day Adult and one 7-Day Child WDW passes all through airmiles. Been saving up since September 2010 (Our last disney trip). Metro supermarkets in Southern Ontario and using a Mastercard Airmiles Credit Card is a great way to accumulate airmiles.

Last year my husband and I built a house. Everything we bought we purchased with our airmiles MC or Amex! In November we flew to Disney on airmiles as well as getting Universal tickets and had some miles left over. We are currently 200 miles away from our flights for this year's trip!
Anyone else use the airmiles toolbar? I hope I'm not being redundant. I'm new and didn't read through 16 entire pages.

So here's the next question. Everyone's great with ideas on how to accumulate AirMiles, but where is the best bang for the buck in spending them? Air fare? Consumer goods? Disney tickets?
