    DilEmma, welcome back. There are no big offers on right now. The hunting is pretty tough these days. The most up to date current info is in the first post. When you're settled in, get back to your Sobeys, Foodland, Rexall, Metro routine.

    I can only imagine you had a great year abroad. You should do up a trip report (of sorts) and the rest of us can live vicariously through you.

    Wow, these air miles offers are pretty dismal this coming week. I thought for sure there would be some air miles deals on gift cards, especially since Father's Day is this Sunday.

    Thanks for the heads up Donald, my son works a block north of the Urban Fresh downtown. I'll get him to pop in and pick up some Coke. He can drink it at work and I'll get the AM. Every little bit helps.

    I stopped at Shell for some gas and lottery tickets, apparently lotto counts as an instore purchase? I spent $5 on that, plus 25 L of gas, and got 6 bonus miles (3 for each). I didn't realize the tickets would count!

    I ran out of deodorant today. I think I am going to go for a $50 spend at Rexall tomorrow... get 100AM. Milk, tylenol, paper products, coffee, should get quite a bit of stuff we are out of! Then I will see what I can get at Sobeys. Bad offerings!!

    If anyone is looking for them, Air Miles has 5 and 7 day adult WDW passes back in inventory. The cost has increased from right before they introduced the Canadian Resident promotion. 5 day pass is now 5100 AM and the 7 day pass is now 5400 AM.

    Wow! That is a big increase, isn't it? I think when I got ours back in the spring of 2017, they were 3325 (5-day kids) and 3500 (5-day adults)...

    It's because over the past year or so, AM is "apparently" not getting their DW tickets at a discount, but at regular park price. 5400 AM for a 7-day adult works out to $568.40 CDN ((5400 / 95) * $10). Buying a 7-day ticket at the park is $441.98 * 1.3 = $574.57 CDN. Depending on exchange rate, it's basically the same.
    Only good thing about this is I don't have to wrangle with the CM to price-bridge, unless they come up with a number that's different.

    Links for the Rexall flyers are active in the first post -- Smartcanucks is much easier to deal with since they let you see all of the flyers, not just the ones in your actual postal code!
    Western Flyer
    Ontario Flyer


    I'm gonna be able to clean up this weekend!! Here's what will be brought home to the Duck Pond:

    • Sunscreen not sure which has miles attached but we need some (hubby burns walking past a florescent lightbulb :P) --could net us 10 AM
    • Vitamins -- spend $30 get 30 -- getting old has some advantages in the Airmiles hunt!
    • Bandaids never have too many of those!
    • Airwicks refills (neighbours have cats and don't clean the litter box very often :faint:) , lysol wipes, dishwasher cleaner - I have a bunch of coupons as well $30 get 15 AM
    • Dove Shampoo - $4.99 buy 2 get 15 AM
    • so many other little things, this will be a lengthy wander and calculate trip with more than likely at least 2 transactions!
    There will be new LnG offers tomorrow as well so I'm even gonna wait to see if there is a threshold spend offer for next week that might allow even MORE miles :rolleyes1

    Getting the passes for "Free" with air miles sure cuts down on trip costs! When we went in February (bought all WDW, US and SeaWorld passes with miles), I'm sure we saved around $2500-$3000 CDN. It actually helps make the trip "affordable" with the crappy exchange rate.

    I just wish they would get some WDW passes that didn't need to be used by Dec 2018.
    3 or 4 day passes would be nice tooooo!:lovestruc
    Right now I use airmiles to get Starbuck Gift cards to offset the cost of food.

    I had a very successful trip to Sobeys Kanata tonight. There are quite a few good AM offers that aren't in the flyer. One in particular - Jif Peanut Butter and Smuckers jam - all on for $3.99 buy 4 get 25AM....quite good on the PB deal but can mix and match. Also Egg Creations are on $2.99 buy 2 get 10 AM and I had a loaded offer buy 1 get 10 which worked twice so spent $6 got 30AM. Had $130 get 30AM threshold. Lots and lots of soup in store - they won't run out. Lots of deals even with no AM attached. I spend $143 and got 299AM plus 14 on Mastercard plus $5 off coupon for $50spend at Sobeys and 5 cents off per litre at Shell max 75 litre ($3.75 value). Very good for Sobeys ON

    Nice! I think I'm just going to get basics at Sobeys this week. Going to do a $55+ shop at Rexall tomorrow as we need a bunch of things I can get there. Will use the $5 off $25 coupon and do the spend $50 get 100AM. Should get about 20 other bonus AM based on what I need to buy.

    Here's hoping it doesn't rain so I can walk to Rexall and get exercise too :)
