I finally got my Metro 25 bonus miles from spending 95 almost two weeks ago. But that was a flyer offer, a load and go offer, and a shop the block offer, so it's anyone's guess which 25 I'm getting and if that will qualify. What a disaster this promotion is turning out to be

Question/clarification to the shop the block experts:

I used 2 offers at Sobeys:

Cadbury and Herbal Essenses. PLU 64 and 65 Show up aside from BONUS 20 and 30 miles as well (total 50). My points were posted at Airmiles.ca as 1 transaction with 50 Bonus points. Is this ok? I'm just worried Airmiles would treat this as 1 transaction instead of 2

I believe Sobeys sum up the entire week of bonus AMs and just post one line for all of them. So even if you have different receipts or do it over multiple days, chances are you will just get one line at the end. So keeping the receipts are very important in the event there is a dispute

Anyone else experiencing issues doing the foodland redeem 95 air miles in Ontario? When the cashier scanned the coupon code, the system wouldn’t let me redeem my miles. Account was unlocked. I was able to redeem my miles if the coupon wasn’t loaded. Also tried redeeming miles first and adding coupon afterwards which did not work either. Tried at two different foodland locations and had the exact same problem.
I thought some people had successfully redeemed miles at foodland last week with PLU 38 printed on receipt. How come suddenly not working? which two locations did you go? new flyer will be effective tomorrow and I plan to redeem my miles

My STB redemption on Saturday (25AMs for redeeming 95AMs) is not there yet, so it's probably your load & go

I used the Sobeys' "buy 3 pack of Maple Lodge Chicken Bacon", but I did not see any bonus miles on my receipt (only PLU code shown). Does that sound the same to anyone who have done the same offer? Thanks.

Not that it is relevant to corvax's question, but Sobeys sum up the entire week BY STORE. So for example, in my AM Statement under Sponsor, I see Sobeys whether the store was Urban Fresh or Sobeys. The next column shows the store address, so I can tell which one it was. In one week, I might have separate rows for 2 different Sobeys or 2 different Urban Fresh, etc.

Probably not a STB question but sobey and foodland's - does anyone notice the store receipt doesn't reflect your latest AM balances at all?
i.e. my airmiles account will tell me 100 and the receipt will say ur balance is 0...altho it has ur am acct # and etc

Same for everyone. I think Metro promotion was the weekend of Nov 24th redemption. I don't think anyone receive the 25AMs yet

did u PHYSICALLY scan the ams card? it only works with physical card, i think foodland is the only store where its a must that u have the card, otherwise u can't redeem....other stores u can punch in manually the AMs number/card on redemption YMMV

I went to the one on Danforth and Pape and also the one down by the beaches area.

Yup, scanned the physical card but still didn’t work.
