Thanks! It's applicable at our Safeway here too. Bought paper products, cereal bars .. etc. Scored some good miles towards our next trip.

Just curious - how do you all plan on using your airmiles? Towards plane tickets or products? I'm saving for plane tickets for the whole family. May redeem park tickets if we have some extra miles left.

Cheers

Thank you so much for this tip. I have been able to collect 30 Airmiles for June and so far 15 Airmiles for July.

I'm on a mission to get 200 miles until the end of October to be able to get my son's ticket to Universal through Airmiles.

A few tips:

* http://www.powerpledgeontario.org is giving away 20 free miles if you join their pledge. You also get to donate 10 airmiles on their behalf to a charity of your choice.

* Next weekend, if you spend 30.00 at PharmaPlus, you get 30 extra airmiles. I don't see a limit of one transaction per card, so I will try to stock up. Just buying the razors for my shaver will be almost 30.00

If anyone has additional tips, let me know, please.

If you have a new Safeway store in your city... or a Walmart Super Centre going in close to any newer safeway... check their flyer. The Safeway near my home that recently opened has had 12 months of bonus airmiles... spend $100 get 150 airmiles, and spend $200 get 300 bonus airmiles... I go every week... today I got 510 airmiles on $210 worth of groceries. I have recieved as many as 900 in one trip ($225 spent)

Takes some planning... but it's worth the drive if the store is further than your local store. They do this to get people in, and to compete against the Walmart Supercentre pricing.

I did the powerplegde a couple of months ago and have yet to see the miles in my account. I think it is one of the slow ones that takes the full 120 days.

I did the Power Pledge and got my 20 airmiles in my account in less than 2 weeks.

I got my 20 airmiles in less than 3 days after I took the pledge.
I would either try again (it will tell you if your card has participated before) or write to them to complain.

I just went in and did it again.....it took my info so I guess something went wrong the last time. I already have the confirmation email so I'll keep it just in case. It says in the confirmation that the miles are credited within 7 days.

Thanks

airmiles

I'm not sure if this in new info, or has been this way for a while, but I just checked Airmiles.ca, and saw they are promoting getting a five day disney pass with your miles for the price of 3 days. Not bad! Sorry if this info is posted somewhere else.

There is also a 6 day for the price of 4 available. Doesn't show up until you go to select which one you want to order though.

It's a special promo for Disneyland right now. Good until sometime in September. We just used the tickets last week.

BIG Airmiles sales at Metro, In Ontario, this week.
Check the flyer at: http://metro.ca/en/on/available-flye...vailableFlyers

For instance, 3 boxes of 12 cans of Coke products for 12.00 (4.00 each). You get 20 bonus airmiles with this purchase. Several other products have extra airmiles.

Considering the regular price at No Frills or Walmart is 5.27 per box, that's a good price and great bonus AM.. I'll stock up on m mission to get 200 miles until end of October.
