My daughter goes to the Rexall in the Path on King and it has self scanners. You can scan all the coupons you want.
which one is this? I get turned around down there! I mentioned having bad luck at one but they didn't have self scan ... mind you I did give up on that location and they could easily have renovated. The one up on the actual street is fairly decent though.

    sooo, are we saying that the Rexall stores that have self checkout will let you scan the coupons?!?! If so, this is a game changer for me! I know there are a lot of people who dislike self check for numerous reasons, and I get that, but for those of us who deal with social anxiety it's great to be able to decide when and how much we are able to interact with others. I'm not very often anywhere other than our own city on Wednesdays, you know, Rexall rampage days, but when I'm in Toronto I'm already at peak level for people overload and self check is perfect!

    My Rexall shops,,,there is never a guarantee that the person will scan all your coupons ....today the lady at one store said to me they are both the same and I said "just please scan them both as the UPC codes are different".....BUT I never know whether or not one of these days one of the cashiers will refuse.
    At two of the Rexall's I shop at they insist that they need to keep the printed coupons???
    I actually don't understand their reluctance as I mean if Airmiles and Rexall didn't want this to happen believe me it wouldn't,,,,they'd close the loophole,,,, until then I am going to keep trying it.
    I shop in Mississauga at three different Rexall's.

    1375 Southdown Rd #1, Mississauga, ON L5J 2Z1,,,lovely people

    3010 Thomas St, Mississauga, ON L5M 0R4 (want their printed coupons and question sometimes)

    3221 Derry Rd W #16, Mississauga, ON L5N 7L7 (there is a cashier that thinks she is the *Airmiles Police* and I hate getting her). Last time the manager told her off for complaining that people were getting an extra 100 airmiles ,,,she said *hey if the customer is happy why complain..I'm not calling airmiles to tell them about a computer glitch*.

    I am sorry some people are being refused.
    Hugs to you

    I was able to do 3 shops today =600 airmiles.
    That's interesting that they would refuse to scan coupons. At a Rexall location in Ottawa, the cashier scanned them for me and informed me with a smile that I had gotten 200 points! I didn't have any trouble with the coupon.

    That's interesting that they would refuse to scan coupons. At the Rexall location on Merivale in Ottawa, they had posted the coupons behind the cashier and she scanned them without me saying anything and informed me with a smile that I had gotten 200 points! I didn't even have to refer to the coupon.
    I've trained them well. That's my usual store. But shh! keep our little gem a secret. :welcome: to Dis and the Canadian Threads.

    They really updated the travel hub (searching for hotels). I mean it's nice to see how many airmiles versus how much $$ it would cost, but I'm having a harder time sorting. I used to sort by distance from the airport and I can't seem to figure that out now. It does look pretty though.

    edit - I am happy to see more than just Best Westerns listed now though

    are you talking about the section of the travel rewards page where you use miles or the travel hub where you pay and earn miles? Either way, yes the search has always been ridiculous because some of the hotels don't provide on their own sites distance to airports (because they're not actually airport hotels!) So they get sorted at the top of the list... frustrating!

    Yes. You scan the coupons just like you were purchasing something. It doesn't specifically ask for the coupons, you just scan them after you scan your items. It will show up on the screen just like at the register.

    Yes they updated it, so now it's one page instead of one for using AM and one for cash, you search and get results for both, how much it would cost in airmiles as well as how much it would cost in money (and how many airmiles you would earn). Sorting isn't as easy (at least for what I'd like to sort by). And even the filters don't seem to work, I tried filtering for airport shuttles but it didn't pick them all up. It's very pretty compared to the way it looked before. Also doesn't show the taxes/fees above the airmiles, I guess if you click through it would do that.

    Ohh I figured out the distance bit! When you get the list of hotels, at the top left hand corner there's a small section that says LIST VIEW. Click on that and it brings up a map of the area. It lists ALL the hotels! You just zoom into the area you are looking at and see what hotels are nearby. I love it! It shows the Air Miles price of each hotel right on the map as well.
