No idea how many I earned in total but I know it was over 1000. I bought a large number of gift cards that earned me 1000 miles but then there were however many I earned from gas and instore purchases.A question for those that got invited to the Shell GO+ this year - do you have any idea how many AM you actually earned last year at Shell to get the invite? i didn't start really collecting till September last year, so I was out for this year for sure, just wondering if I'll have any shot at it next year! So far my spreadsheet tells me I've gotten 1230AM at shell.
I don't know exactly how I feel about these potential changes.I'm doing a AM's survey right now and they are looking at changing flight AM's. Here's something I find interesting....
The AIR MILES Reward Program is considering updating the way in which Flight Rewards are offered to Collectors. Please read the description below and answer the questions that follow. If you do not currently collect Dream Miles (which are used for flight redemptions), we are still interested in your opinion.
How it works:
- The number of Dream Miles needed for a flight will reflect what is available in the market directly with airlines
- 10 Dream Miles = $1
- You will have access to all available seats, including all fare classes (e.g. economy, business class, etc.), on most airlines
- The AIR MILES Reward Program will provide additional savings through frequent seat sales (on top of any seat sales offered directly from airlines)
Terms & Conditions
- Flight Rewards will be available to redeem using Dream Miles, but you have the option of purchasing Dream Miles if you do not have enough for your redemption.
- Taxes and fees will be paid separately using any credit card

For anyone curious, I did end up booking our Disneyland trip yesterday. After my initial post, I listed and sold two large items and “made” $400 in 24 hours. With that quick cash and shaving a day off, I felt much better. Hopefully a couple of the other items sell soon and I’ll be able to pay my flight tax and fees of $550 in no time. Very excited to be “going home” . Thank you to those with suggestions and words of support. I appreciate it.Hi All. Needing some assistance please with Airmiles as well as ideas on options. I neglected to read the fine print on using Westjet dollars for flights. Hadn’t realized that you can’t use them for taxes and fees, and now find myself looking for ways to make up a $550 out of pocket when I was banking on an entire itinerary being covered with WJ$. It throws my whole budget off and I refuse to proceed with booking until I can “feel better” about the out of pocket expense.
The plan was Disneyland this Sept (already have Halloween party tickets) and I was using my AM to redeem for park tickets. My initial thought was to use the leftover AM on my account to redeem for WJ travel vouchers though I don’t see them offered. Live chat said the same. I’m Onyx, so maybe I’ll send an email tomorrow for a final answer unless any of you know for sure. My excess AM are in dream, and I don’t have any in cash right now.
I use the PC Optimum points system as well and have cleared my account for Disney GC’s to cover our food and souvenirs for the 6 day trip. Our out of pocket was going to be the hotel and transportation only. For reasons I won’t explain, the $550 places us to question going at all. It’s not our first trip but the family time is very much needed.
Of course I prefer to have the cash prior to the trip, though I would certainly entertain any ideas that would help to pay off the credit card debt soon after. The only other option I see for savings is to reduce the trip by one day, which I estimate will save $325. We’ve done a trip in 5 days before and can definitely make it work this time too.
Thanks in advance. Any and all replies to my plea are welcomed.
I'd say maybe 1200-1500 airmiles, I was surprised I was one of their "top" customers. I wasn't buying an excessive amount of gift cards (when gas stations started the no credit cards to buy gift cards during the GTA promotion last year in May, I stopped buying and haven't bought since) but I was also getting monthly 100 airmiles gas offers which I was using. The year before likely more though due to gift cards.A question for those that got invited to the Shell GO+ this year - do you have any idea how many AM you actually earned last year at Shell to get the invite? i didn't start really collecting till September last year, so I was out for this year for sure, just wondering if I'll have any shot at it next year! So far my spreadsheet tells me I've gotten 1230AM at shell.
I really hate when these programs revamp the entire thing only so they can give you less value but hope no one does the math to figure it out. Not in favor of this kind of change.Thought i should post SOMETHING or I'll get kicked out of my own thread for truancy I'm slowly working thru a very restrictive elimination diet, made it all the way up to 7 safe foods (and that's only because I'm counting milk butter and cheese as 3 separate items!) and I'm exhausted & overwhelmed by the process. Doesn't leave me much head space to do more than read thru the posts and comment if someone else hasn't already answered -- THANKS to everyone for stepping up and helping each other out.
A few things i wanted to comment on:
The ticket exchange to AP, all i can say is wow, just WOW! A lot of drama that might come back to bite someone else who tries to do something similar and isn't able to find a CM who's willing to let them combine multiple tickets and apply them to whatever upgrade they want to accomplish!! I would hate to find out that someone has cashed in a truck load of Airmiles to get several tickets and then get told no, they don't combine
Shell? I haven't got the foggiest idea what the deal is, but we don't get gas there and only go in when they have a promo/coupon that needs to be used. You would think that would be a good time for them to throw an offer in my direction to encourage me? Guess they didn't think to ask me did they
Possible changes to the redemption process? Oh COME ON! Don't mess with my head like that, already messy inside there! But let me see, what happens if i try to book a hypothetical flight for our dates in January
SO based on the above, they'll be charging more than currently offered flights. And remove my ONYX discount on merchandise???? Uhm how about a big fat NO!
- Direct from the Westjet site it would cost 278 + 139.55 in taxes & fees AND minus 20.45 for a code i have total cost of 397.10 Using the math the survey provided that would be 2780 miles plus taxes (and i wouldn't get my discount)
- Currently on the AM site those same flights would be 2380 miles and 141.40 in taxes & fees
It's flyer eve, fingers crossed there's something good. OH yeah, and if it's Blue Friday I better have my e-voucher by then!!!
YES....3 day tickets are back!!!!! Much better for us. Two trips in a row we wasted the 5th day and only used the 4th because we didn't want to waste 2 days. One of those 4th days was used for about 3 hours and the other one we used to get into Epcot just to eat.New I assume?
3day flex 4650 airmiles
5day flex 5900 airmiles
7day flex 6050 airmiles
Expiry December 31, 2019 (I was surprised).
I imagine these ones are worth full value that is posted on Disney's website. The 4750 7day flex tickets are also still in stock, December 31, 2019 expiry.
