There's also a chart attached to the bottom of this post with the list of items included

You can get targeted offers for bonus AirMiles at Rexall loaded to your card.

How Load and Go offers work
To sign up for these offers go to this page and enter your collector number.
Load and Go offers for Rexall
Here's a coupon that will give you $5.00 off if you spend $25.00 or more at Rexall. The results from using this coupon vary store to store. Some will apply it pre-tax and others treat it more like a gift card and apply it post-tax. Some stores allow you to use it with other coupons (like the bonus Miles) while others won't let it combine with any. SO this is a case of asking before you try to use it to determine if it will be of any benefit to you or not

Airmiles Online Shopping
Most of these stores don't offer Airmiles in their brick and mortar stores ... Indigo, Amazon, E-Bay - the list is long and varied.

Earn Airmiles by Shopping On-Line
Be sure to carefully read the instructions to guarantee you earn the miles.
Amazon's for example :
In order to get Miles on your Amazon.ca purchase, you must follow the below steps:

  1. Enter your AIR MILES Collector Number on airmilesshops.ca
  2. Click on the Shop Now button below
  3. Add items to your shopping cart on Amazon.ca (you will not receive miles if there were items in your shopping cart prior to clicking the Shop Now button on airmilesshops.ca)
  4. Complete the transaction on Amazon.ca
(You must complete all four steps in a single web session — make sure that you do not close the window, or log off your computer before completing the transaction)


Please note: AIR MILES® reward miles will not be earned on Amazon Gift Cards, Amazon Prime Sign-up, Books, eBooks, Groceries, Automotive supplies, Tools & Home Improvement, books, or Kindle devices or Kindle eBooks.

REXALL BEAUTY EVENT INFO: From Poster ***Days In The Sun***
Since Rexall seems to run Beauty events every Thursday, I finally got around to letting Rexall know about the difficulties of shopping on such a day. I had an awesome customer service rep run a query on their database which resulted in the report below of the categories currently considered "beauty" event products. Sorry for the formatting (BOLD is from her database, unbolded at the bottom were some specific items I asked about).

Thank you for your email.

This is what is included in our Thursday Beauty event.

Fine print says natural skin care? Does this include Tom's deodorant? Not included
Travel sizes? Travel Size is not included
Bath products? All? Not Included
Sets? not included
Eos? NO
Burts bees? Depends if this is under the skin category

Hope this helps,


Thank you,

Note: someone on this thread has purchased epsom salts successfully I recall and I have purchased essential oils as "beauty" as well.

Edit: Just thought I'd add that a number of years ago I recall an issue where I was told that lip care isn't considered skin care in the "beauty" industry. I'm definitely not the most informed but this does seem consistent here where lip products such as EOS and Burt's Bees are lip products and not considered "skin care". So lip products that are cosmetics are included, otherwise not.

    Today is the last day but Metro has spend $100 get 100 AM. There is also a Mega Miles coupon for 110 AM when you spend $100 which expires today.

    So today you can earn 215 AM on a $100 purchase and then if you pay via a AM credit card that will earn you 10 more plus any instore bonus offers.

    Unfortunate for me I don't think I could spend $100 today on groceries. My fridge is pretty full. Too bad Metro doesn't price match....some other stores are having really good sales this week and I would spend the money stocking up if I could get the AM.

    So I went to metro today and bought
    $106.68 in groceries. sub total
    $110.93 total bill

    base airmiles earned 5
    bonus airmiles earned 10
    Bonus coupon (I had printed this off Mega Miles coupon) 110 airmiles
    total airmiles earned 125
    I went to customer counter to question the current spend $100.00 get 100 points to which I was told these will show up later on my account. He said they don't show up on the receipt ?

    It's been a while since I've shopped at Metro with that deal and I'm pretty sure the miles come later.

    There is some small print at the bottom of the flyer page that says the bonus will not appear on your receipt but will be credited within 4 to 6 weeks (it's small, I'm reading online so I might have it a bit wrong but you could check if you have a paper flyer?)

    I do have a flyer and it does say the points will not be on the cash register receipt but will be credited 4-6 weeks.
    this is great to know.
    Thanks and

    Shoot!
    I'm sorry this happened Hon.
    I know one of the cashiers at Rexall recently told me that they have been told they have to tell people if they are a few dollars away from getting airmiles.
    I would have been tempted to do a return.
    Better days ahead.

    I find that Guest Services at Metro is very good at giving you points if something got messed up. I would take that receipt back to them and see if there is something they can do.

    Yes, they are very good but there is a limit as to the courtesy miles they can give. It's around 20. You would do much better contacting AM through the missing miles link on their site. They always give you way more than what you were supposed to get in the first place. Even though this is not missing miles I would take this route.

    Well, since it was groceries ti would be a pain to return everything and since we didn't notice till we were putting everything away phooey! And if in fact I was in the right i would head into customer service since they know us very well ... but we clearly didn't make the before tax total needed. Could kick myself :(

    Hi
    I need some help to understand this
    I see I can spend $30.00 this weekend at Rexall and get a $10.00 Rexall gift coupon.
    Can these 10.00 Rexall gift coupons be used to buy $10.00 Starbucks cards?

    I read the fine print on the last page but find it confusing.

    http://www.rexall.ca/eflyer?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=sept10-beautybook


    Thanks
    Mel
    I'm wondering if you could combine the spend $50 on cosmetics with the $30/$10 gift card deal and get both the 100 AM and GC.
