Free Air Miles (signups, surveys, etc.)

Retailer:
Air Miles
I thought it would be a good idea to have a thread for the free Air Miles offers that pop up from time to time.
PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT referring to any Air Miles offer where you have to buy something to get Air Miles.
I'll try to keep this post updated as people add offers.

CURRENT OFFERS:

[AIR MILES] Signing up for a new Air Miles account gets you 25 Air Miles. PRO TIP: If you want to collect Cash Air Miles, specify this at sign-up and wait a few days before completing the freebies listed below.
Otherwise, some of them may end up as Dream Miles because the system takes a few days to register your new account and recognize Cash Miles as your preference. 95 Cash Miles = $10 at participating retailers.

[RONA] 25 Air Miles - Sign up for RONA emails (you can unsubscribe after you receive the Air Miles in your account)
Expiry: unknown
https://www.rona.ca/en/newsletter-subscription

[Manulife] 10 Air Miles - Complete this quick survey (thanks to @lor74 for the find) and get 10 Air Miles within 90 days - answers are "all of the above" and "true"
Expiry: unknown
https://www.airmiles.ca/arrow/TravelOne ... cale=en_CA

[Research Now] 15 Air Miles - sign up to complete surveys and receive 15 Air Miles for your first survey - see post #9 below for discussion
Expiry: none (standard offer)
https://www.airmiles.ca/m/SponsorDetail ... 0774220623

UNKNOWN STATUS:

[LCBO] 30 Air Miles - canadianfreestuff.com has a post from September advising of this bonus if you sign up for their newsletter and provide your Air Miles number.
No idea if it's still current, and no obvious promotion on the website, so probably expired, will update if I receive the Air Miles.
Also, there is an RFD thread from 2015 advising of this promotion, now in the Expired Deals column.
Expiry: unknown
https://mylcbo.com/app/register

[Metro] 50 Air Miles - sign up for an online Metro account and provide your Air Miles # for 50 Air Miles (4-6 weeks for fulfillment)
Different methods and deadlines have recently appeared, but they *MAY* all be promoting an ongoing, untimed offer.
No guarantees at this point that you will get the 50 Air Miles (well, there weren't any before either - it may have been targeted), so you might want to wait. Once you've given Metro your AIr Miles #, it can't be used for a future promotion offering free AM for signing up.

EXPIRED OFFERS:

[Hudson's Bay] 10 Air Miles - Create a new HBC Rewards account and sign up for auto-convert to Air Miles (via Shop The Block)
Expiry: December 14, 2017

Thanks!

Did the Manulife one, but didn't qualify for Rona since apparently I was already registered.

Not sure about the LCBO AM promotion. I have shopped with Air Miles there when I buy a bottle or can. I know each holiday flyer offers bonus AM points on selected LCBO drinks for the flyer's duration.

LCBO works, but it takes a while. I signed up Jul 5 this year and the 30 miles was posted Aug 17.

On another note, anyone having problems with the Manulife quiz? I click on "Take The Quiz" button but nothing happens.

Works for me via rfd app browser.

I decided to add the Research Now survey site to the main post, but I don't necessarily recommend you continue doing it after you've completed your first survey.
Research Now has been a sore spot with many Air Miles collectors because they will front load the data collection in a survey, and then claim that you are not eligible to complete it (after you've already spent several minutes trying to "qualify" for a survey).
Also, the reward levels are not appealing, unless you really like filling out surveys and/or giving your opinion.

Thanks to @dawes @jeeva86 and @mikka2017 for info about this one in the Shop the Block thread.

@dawes received an email from Metro for 50 Air Miles when you create a Metro account by December 17.
MAY be targeted.
Added to the main post.

That is my beef-5 - 10 minutes into a wine survey and then I cannot continue.
Or the question you have to answer to get to another question in order to find an open survey-I kept getting one about cars even though I have never owned one nor drive anymore.

Screw the "Research now" survey thing. They're the typical; 99% of the survey done then all of a sudden you did not qualify... Nonetheless the other Airmiles rewards were great, so thanks OP.

I know I learned by lesson after 2x trying it out, never qualify for a dismal 2 air miles. Why bother, I agree! Well air miles are still worth it for Shop the block and email sign ups so I'll watch out for that. Good thread idea.
