Thanks, I was a bit confuzzled after reading PointsHubby's post which incorrectly states you get it the year after
I did not say that

I said you qualified in one year for the following year Status ... this remains true for those working hard now to get to 1000 or 6000 AMs

The rules changed recently (see the email press release posted by @johnsmithy ) whereby you no longer have to wait to January 1st the following year to get status, status is now granted as soon as you earn it

I did not get into all that... cause well, this is December...

Overall the change is a good thing but it is not straightforward as you state

Status will be different for those who qualified / maintained thru 2017 into 2018 (grandfathered in)

For further info on al, the Intricacies of Gold & Onyx Status for the years 2017, 2018, 2019 and beyond see the stand alone topic on that in the SHOPPING DISCUSSION FORUM

Metro.ca account sorry.
Cool! I looked around their website but didn't see it advertised. Is there a link in your email that leads to a page that says earn 50 AMs if you signup?

It could be targeted though... What are you signed up to receive from Metro that they sent you this offer?

If PLU shown on receipe but no bonus points shown so doesn that mean it is still eligible?
Depends.

PLU shows up just cause the coupon was scanned
AMs show up (whether on receipt or not) if Coupon is used for purchasing a qualifying item

What did you buy ?

FYI - got an email from Metro offering 50 air miles for creating an account before Dec 17.
Nice... but doesn’t count towards STB

That's almost literally what you said

Gold & Onyx you qualify for annually with the miles you accumulate in the year previously [...]
Miles you accumulate in 2018 determine your status for 2019
You're saying if we qualify for status in one year (by getting enough miles), we get the status the next year
When it's been changed that we get the status immediately upon qualification
So your example in the quote above ("Miles you accumulate in 2018 determine your status for 2019") is incorrect; it should read: "If you accumulate enough miles, miles you accumulate in 2018 determine your status for the rest of 2018 & 2019"

Maybe your post was directed to only how it'll last until the end of the next year; if so, it was poorly worded and infringed on the immediate-status-upon-qualification aspect of the changes

I don't think it's targeted. Register here for it - https://www.metro.ca/en/sign-up

Fine print in my e-mail states:
*Offer valid from December 11th to December 17th, 2017. Offer subject to change without notice. Limit of one Bonus Offer per AIR MILES® Collector Number. Miles will be posted to your Account 4-6 weeks from the end date of the offer, only if the Collector has created a profile on metro.ca and added his/her Collector Number to this account.

Cheers! Signed up. I hope to see +50 AMs by January 26th! I can't believe I forked over my address and phone number so willingly for $5... sigh.

Are these coupons reusable? I didn't see anything mentioned in the fine print. I know you using it a second time does not count it to the STB offer, but will I still get the bonus miles from the coupons?
get what is cheap, not what you need :lol:

Yes it seems several people have had some success with that... in so much as the AMs at least were on their Receipts... not sure about actual POSTING to ones AM Accounts

Made an account but can't seem to find where to put in the AM number
I don't think you can add it after the fact. It has to be done when signing up for the metro.ca account.

Just signed up myself and same, forking over my info for the miles. But I didn't realize the My Metro is sorta like Sobeys/Foodland Get My Offers. Although you have to print the Metro coupons, but I would think that would work much better than Sobeys (Which NEVER works for me)

Nov 17 eCard purchase still not posted. Hmmm...
Me either. The offer says we should receive our airmiles bonus within 30 days, so if I don't see it by Dec 17 I'm making contact.

Yes, but the point I was trying to make was that in our family, one collector has already received the bonus for a purchase on Nov 23, whereas the spouse has not received the bonus for the same purchase 6 days earlier on Nov 17. It is not like the Shell inconsistency, with some locations splitting the purchase into 2 receipts. There is only one way to redeem for the HBC gift card, so it is puzzling that there can be such a difference in posting the miles.

Did you get an email confirmation after signup? And are you able to login to your new metro account? Mine isn't working and I haven't received an email yet (I checked my junk/spam too).
