Thanks for the tip @gamer602! About to buy something there so this is perfect.

I'm also wondering about whether this works with the edu discount. Anyone know?

Regarding stackability with the edu store:
It only states in their terms and conditions that Orders purchased on the Government or Military and Veteran’s Stores are not eligible for Air Miles Reward Miles. Doesn't state no to the edu store but I would imagine they might not stack.
I placed a recent order through the edu store and used airmails shops in the hopes that it would work but that was last week and as we know it can take months for it to apply!

Don't forget they usually exclude the newest products from the airmails shop miles.

Terms and Conditions:
"Please note that AIR MILES Reward Miles cannot be earned on the following products: iPhone SE, new Macbook Air, Mac Pro, Apple Pro Display XDR, gift cards, gift wrap, Bose products, Apple Developer Programs, iTunes or App store purchases and shipping. Orders purchased on the Government or Military and Veteran’s Stores are not eligible for Air Miles Reward Miles.
Apple sells and ships products to end user customers only; you may not purchase for resale.
Miles will be issued to a customer for up to five (5) units per eligible product, except iPhone, in which case only two (2) units within a thirty-day (30-day) period are eligible."

Also I am pretty sure their multipliers work like this :
1 base mile per 20 dollars
+ 14 for the 15 bonus
for a total of 15 not 16.
= 15 miles per 20 dollars spent or roughly 7.89% back in airmiles if used for cash miles.

I took advantage of similar promotion last September. Picked up an iMac with the free Beats Studio headphones on Education discount and the 10x Aeroplan points promo.

Just a suggestion - keep checking your points balance and watch for the bonus points to appear. I had to chase mine through Aeroplan and fight for the points to be credited. Had to prove to them I purchased through the Aeroplan store etc.

So take screen shots of your order, keep your emails etc. and follow up on the points.

Yep, exactly this. I bought an iPad pro during the Xmas 20x the miles and had to chase them to get the miles (all my other purchases from order retailers were fine). Didn't end up getting the miles credited until April. Screenshot everything!

Not amazing - but if you're already about to buy something from apple.ca this is just an extra bonus.

Airmileshop.ca will give you 15 air miles for every $20 spent (normally 1 mile every $20 spent). 95 air miles buys a $10 eVoucher from a large selection of frequently used retailers. So the math works out to be:
15 miles = $10 x 15/95 = $1.58 per $20 spent = 7.9% back through eVouchers

2 days only - expires May 20, 2020

Exclusions: iPhone SE, new Macbook Air, Mac Pro, Apple Pro Display XDR, gift cards, gift wrap, Bose products, Apple Developer Programs, iTunes or App store purchases and shipping.

I have recently cashed out about $500 in vouchers using air miles so I can confirm it works smoothly but I highly recommend you set a reminder to check for the bonus miles and follow up if they don't appear when they're supposed to.

you can triple dip: refurb pricing, Airmiles 15x, Brim CC 52% cash back - you would be very very in the money on any purchase this way

if you use RBC Rewards offer that doubles 2x the points / $1 to maximize and then have it linked to Drop (15 points per $1) to stack

Happened to me two years in a row now. Both times were during Black Friday promo of 20X the air miles. Unfortunately I have to wait until March/April as well as they say the points could take up to 75 days but they never show up until I follow up with them. It’s almost like they hope people forget after a long period of time.

Oh the good ol days when a 15x event was site wide, especially during a bonus-boom event.

I mean too soon to say perhaps, but the one at only 7x sitewide last week was an ill-omen.

And apple specific ones were usually 20x, if not more since apple products are so mega over priced and so high margin apple can easily pay affiliates a lot.

tip:
Samsung may not have a multiplier on atm, but they got 250-500 bonus on select phones/tablets and $100 uber eats credit happening now. (and their high priced devices actually have the highest specs to back up those prices)
