What is the best value to redeem Air Miles with?
I was thinking more along the lines of 140 miles for $20 Dominion gift certificate or 175 miles for $20 Shell Gas certificate but I'm not sure if these are the best bang for the buck.

Airmiles changed that reward to 75 airmiles for 2 car washes a little while ago.150 AMs for 5 Ultimate Shell car washes.

Great information here. Thanks.T-Bone wrote:Airmiles changed that reward to 75 airmiles for 2 car washes a little while ago.
Audio - Just do the math ($ value divide by airmiles required). This has been posted before but I believe that the 2 for 1 @ famous players was the best value airmiles reward. You get:
$0.44 per Airmile on the Famours Players 2 for 1
$0.33 per Airmile on the old Shell 5 Car wash cert.
$0.27 per Airmile on the new Shell 2 Car wash cert.
$0.14 per Airmile on the Dominion $20 cert.
$0.14 per Airmile on a [rfdlink=/forums/autolink/redirectpage.php?linkid=32]Chapters[/rfdlink], Gap or Sport Check $25 cert.
$0.12 per Airmile on the Starbucks $10 cert.
$0.11 per Airmile on the Shell gas $20 cert.
If you don't go to the theater, it's still cheaper to rent a DVD but if you go to watch movies at Famous Players, then the 2 for 1 is a smoking value as far as Airmiles go.

Unless you're single and go with someone.. use the voucher, and your 'date' or 'buddy' assumes that you're going to split the price. .

Air Miles depreciate in value, just like cash does, you'll be constantly chasing a moving target.

I also got the Westjet Mastercard... seems to be a smoking deal for those that use their CC often.sparkplug wrote: ↑Oct 30th, 2006 11:02 amBy a landslide, the best redemption value is to get yourself a Bank of Montreal Mosaik gold Mastercard and book WestJet flights, especially during high season. If you live in Western Canada and you have a Safeway, you can fly free at least a couple times a year.
Ever since the WestJet Mastercard was introduced a few years ago, I've accumulated 5000-10000 Air Miles annually, mostly from Safeway, and it only costs 1600 miles to fly WestJet in North America during the premium high season. I haven't come across any rewards program that can outperform this combination. I've found new places to go on vacation directly because of Air Miles.
