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.
They have this promo fairly often.....since it is on this week it most likely will be on again in another couple of weeks. Also, today if you pay with an AM credit card you will get 2X the miles on your card. That is valid at Rexall and Metro.

I would like to see a return to the 4 weeks of airmiles promo that they did a few years ago. It was in the fall and each week I was getting between 250 and 400 miles for only about $125-$150 worth of groceries. I earned over 1000 miles in those 4 weeks.

Shell is offering between 5X and 10X the miles if you buy at least $20 worth of gas and either $5 or $10 in convience purchases in the same transaction. You must pay with an AM credit card for this one.

I actually took advantage of this promo since there were several things available that I actually use lol. For example: 2 x 6pk of powerade ($4.99 ea) = 10 AM; 3 boxes of Orville Redenbacher microwave popcorn (3 for $10) = 20 AM; Sargento shredded cheese 3 @ $3.99 each which I thought was an awesome price = 20 AM; Uncle Bens Bistro rice (2 for $5) = 5 AM.

Yes! That would be great! I've noticed ever since A&P became Metro, the 'Bonus' AM promos have been few and far in between.

The shredded cheese is indeed an awesome price. I hope other people can take advantage of this week. It goes up to next Thursday.

I've only used airmiles once for flights, but then we drive to WDW or DL. We use air Miles for passes. I have one 5 day adult in airmiles right now and part way to the second. At 2175 air miles it's a great deal and you can up the days at the park for about $5 a day. I got 498 air miles at Safeway one day doing the 100 for $100 deal twice and buying all kinds of 5 items for 30 or 40 or 50 deals. If it's something I can keep in the cupboard, I get it then. The Gourmet Shoppe stuffed chicken breasts and all were on one week for 3 for $9.99 and 6 of them for a bonus 50 air miles - I got 12 and got 100 air miles for $40 orth of groceries. Not bad was base is 1 air mile for $20.

hi mybails...i have a question for you...i am a huge safeway airmile shopper....i got almost 800 a couple of weeks ago and spent 300 that week...You said that you stock up on things when they are buy 5 and get 30 or 40..i do this to, BUT can you purchase more than 1 set in a purchase...for example, if it is buy 5 pringles and get 40, can i buy 10 in the same order and get 80...usually i do in separate orders, but sometimes this defeats the "spend 100 get 150" ...heading out tomorrow for a 100 dollar shop and should be able to get at least 300-350, but if i can do more than 1 set, i can get at least 400

I checked at customer service on that quesstion. It's by item - all the same or assortment and you can get as many as you like so if it's 5 items for 40 - buy 10 get 80.

I think I did pretty well this weekend on Airmiles collection - though not as excellent as the OP and some other previous posters.

I collected 373 Airmiles on Sunday. Some pretty good things to buy that yielded me loads of points:

buy 2 Starbucks coffee (50 AM)
buy 4 TP/paper towels/kleenex (100 AM)
buy 2 cans Unico tomatoes (20 AM)
buy 2 $25 gift cards (10 AM)
spend $100, get 10x AMs

I needed 1000 more Airmiles in September to get 2 DL passes for our spring break trip in March. I'm now down to needing only 340!!!

Winnipegger air mile collector checking in.

This year I've collected 2800+ mostly through Safeway, the purchase of a used vehicle (1000AM) and the BMO AM gold card.

Couple of effortless miles I've collected:
100 for signing up to a safeway mailing list- I can't believe I missed out on the Starbucks promo last week
10 miles for downloading the air miles app on my iphone. It's kind of buggy but it gave me free air miles so I won't complain.

Safeway has a buy 4 cereal boxes (minimum retail purchase $14.00) for 100 air miles this week, so I'll take advantage of that.

I'm going to use 1473 on a one-way flight from Orlando-Winnipeg and buying a one-way going there (I have a $50 voucher with Delta which I can use to my advantage.) I could have used all my miles on a return trip, but I need the extra for a flight to Vancouver later in 2011. airmilesshops.ca is also running a 10x miles event until Dec. 9 which I'll use to buy my Christmas presents. They just take almost two months to register into your account.
