    Back to School Online Shopping Promo


    I've noticed that over the last few weeks we've been getting some new-comers to the Airmiles hunt so decided to turn this first post into a hybrid "stickie" so i can provide links to the most current deals. Most flyer information is available early Wednesday for the upcoming weekend shopping.
    The current offers start here
    Offers for September 20th - 27th


    REXALL

    Rexall Ontario Flyer
    Rexall West Flyer

    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
    $5.00 off when you Spend $25.00 or more Valid till October 9th
    IF the coupon shows up with a September date, clear your history, refresh the page and it should pop up!

    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

    this is what my bill said
    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 ?
    Does this sound normal (right)?

    Thanks
    Hugs Mel

    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?)

    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 :(

    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.

    You'd think you'd be able to do that. They often give out a $10 off coupon with receipts there.
