question for Onyx achievers, do you get a new card automatically or you need to request or you just don't get new one at all?
Read my convo / series of replies to @sunchaser53 starting on Page 28, Reply # 420 regarding qualifying & requalifying for Onyx for info on Welcome Pkg, Onyx Cards etc

Automatic.
About 2 hits after I hit onyx. Just got mine a month ago - only started collecting last year and i have about 17k so far.

Get a very nice fancy black envelope, high quality personalized letter and the card is credit card quality - embossed number and name in silver on all black sem shiny card :)

Was almost gonna call since you get priority support and figured theyd send me a card if i asked, since I never got a gold card. But yea just arrived on its own.

Air miles once you get that, and the high tier amex air miles credit cards start to become feel like a serious high end program. Amex also rewards you with your miles instantly on statement date (eg I got 2k + 100 for the $1500 spend my first month with there platinum card vs waiting the full 3 months for BMOs WE 3000 sign up bonus).

I have Onyx status on my account but never received an email or welcome package. Very strange.

When did you achieve Onyx ?
And for which Qualifying year are we looking at...
In 2017 or 2018...
To answer your Question,
Need to know WHEN did you last meet the required ANNUAL 6000 AMs mark ?

No where near 90 Days from THE END of the MegaMiles Promotion
It was 7 weeks on Thursday (49 Days) when folks started to report the BIG BONUSES from MegaMiles beginning to roll in

AirMiles has UP TO 120 Days (4 Months) to post any missing miles... that will take you to mid August

As someone else mentioned, the hold up could be a particular Partner / Retailer
I know MANY Folks are still patiently waiting Miles to be POSTED from AirMiles Shops.ca
Up to 120 days, unbelievable...

Up to 120 Days has been AirMiles standard quote for many years on getting miles POSTED

Anyhow,
Thought you were talking about MegaMiles...

That ran March 8th to April 12th

What are you waiting on from February ?

It was a promo they had with the 15x, I think it was because of airmilesshops.ca birthday.

AirMiles Anniversary Event happened April 24th to 30th
(So definitely not part of MegaMiles which ended April 12th)

Posting timeframe on this promotion would be upto 120 Days = approximately End of August

Is it me, or can you no longer redeem cash miles for The Gap/Old Navy/Banana Republic e-vouchers anymore? :(

Have not looked specifically for these chains
But e-vouchers are getting rarer and rarer

Since Cash Miles ramped up, the push has been towards redeeming at those affiliated Partners
Versus using Dream Miles for GCs & e-vouchers etc

EDIT / ADD

Beyond all that...
Reward Merchandise turns over frequently
So what you could get last time you looked, might not be there today
And tomorrow might bring something new, or a returning old favourite

It is what it is

Best bang for Dream Rewards is still travel

I got my 25 bonus miles this morning for signing up for Lowes promotional emails. Hubby's did not show up even though we did it on the same day. Winking Face
I'm sure it be added in the next day or so. I wasn't sure if we would get this as I thought it might be a targeted offer but it worked.
