Yes I too am an Airmiles addict.

Gee...I thought I did well with my groceries at Metro, gas at shell, getting my mom to start booking her vacations at Marlin Travel(using my collector card) and paying for my DD's competitive dance stuff with my Amex. After reading all about Safeway my collecting is small potatoes. I have saved about 7000 miles since the end of 2007.

Do you use the airmiles toolbar? I get 30 airmiles a month.

Safeway pharmacy gives 7 airmiles for every $10 even if insurance pays. So DS's prescription may cost $100 and the insureance covers $80 but I still get the 70 airmiles.

I get about 300 airmiles a month from my Mastercard.

I get about 500 airmiles a week from Safeway. (besides the pharacy)

I convert HBC rewards to airmiles.

Airmiles is Canadian program, you won't find it in the USA. The coupon was also in the Winnipeg Free Press on Friday.

Make sure you are on the Canadian Safeway FB page and not the American one.

And if you are a Winnipegger the Leila store is having Extreme airmiles so it's a better deal than the coupon anyhow. You can get the Extreme AM's flyer at the entrance to the Leila store.

Not everyone has a large grocery budget. I couldn't spend $200 a week at Safeway. We don't need that many groceries or have the funds to do so. I do try and do one flyer or edirect AM special on weeks I'm not doing a big buy.

Ya....I went through the Metro flyer last night and unless I missed it there was not even 1 bonus miles product. I have a feeling that it will be a while before we see another mega miles promo.

There is the Mile-ionaire promo right now. If you register online and use at least 3 of the coupons you get a bonus of 50 miles. I need to use one more before June 20th.

We have Metro Stores here in Quebec but the ones I have been to don't offer Air Miles. Like I posted before, we can accumulate airmiles at IGA but for the promos you have to purchase certain items and the are items that we don't use or need. Also, we don't have an IGA close by so we pick up things when we are passing by an IGA.

Sports Experts used to offer AirMiles. Of course, my dh finally bought a bike there and surprise - no more air miles.

We still do well with collecting. We have gone a three trips to Florida, one trip to Newfoundland and on our last trip to DW, we bought our Park Passes.

Sure wish we had a SAFEWAY here!!!!!

this is exciting to know that so many others enjoy the airmiles program.

we shop at superstore at the beginnning of the month when they have their spend 250 get 25 gift card promo. that is usually when the airmiles promotions at safeway suck anyways. then the weeks after i split between safeway and superstore.

i want to surprise my husband with an overnight at an executive inn. does anyone know what points programs give gift cards to executive inns...
