This POLL was a fantastic idea OP. Really gives us an idea of how well (or not) AirMiles works to get their customers what they paid for. Thanks for adding that!!
*RFD - once you're in there's no getting out.*

*If you wanna buy something, wait for it! Eventually RFD will post it and something in your pants will feel awesome that you waited: your wallet.*

Thanks @deezz, I totally agree.

Unfortunately I cannot take credit for the poll idea - the kudos need to be directed towards @svattom (post # 2272). Please give his/her post a thumbs up. :)

I also got the missing 1000 miles after live chat. Changed vote to reflect this.
Thanks @mqc1986 for the update and the reminder.

For those that have had their status changed (ie. added missing points), please modify your vote to indicate this.

My missing 1000 miles were posted Feb 15 without contacting chat. I did 7 offers but only 1000 miles were originally posted on Feb 2. Thought I would have to harass them but no :)

contacted chat and got my missing 1000miles posted.

Had to give them a full breakdown though which would have been impossible without this thread :)

Ugh, didn't realize that AirMilesShops was three retailers and not three purchases! Got my BMO and Amex added to get to 1,000; but didn't get the extra 1,000. (although I thought I had an extra one (eight), now need to check that.

They will know because on the enrollment page to convert HBC Rewards to Air Miles, you enter your Air Miles number.

So, again: sign up for auto-convert, get 1 Shop The Block offer fulfillment. It shouldn't matter if you are an existing HBC Rewards member, or if you sign up today for HBC Rewards. What matters is signing up for the auto-convert to Air Miles.


I don't think the above is true, at least not in BC. I had an existing HBC account, and signed up for auto-conversion to AM for my fifth offer. When I didn't get my 2000 bonus miles, I phoned them, and they said that only if a new HBC account was opened and auto-converted would it count as an offer. If anyone was able to get an existing account to count as an offer, please let me know. I'm so sick and tired of this program, always wondering if I'll get the full miles, and then wasting hours trying to chase down the missing miles only to not get them in the end!




Spending the $50 and using the coupon *SHOULD* be the 2nd offer.

Noticed that there is now a third offer up for Hudson's Bay (spend $50 get 50 AM), so perhaps the $50/100 AM is specific to Topshop Topman.

If that's the (lame and untrue) reason they gave you, I would contact the Customer Relations team immediately. 1-888-413-1311 or 416-228-6627 - these guys are the REAL customer service agents at Air Miles and will actually treat you with respect.

Thanks, Erumuh. I went through each of the offers listed at the beginning of the thread again, and saw that both the HBC auto-conversion and Campaign for Better Hearing tests seemed to be valid offers (latter was also denied) so I think I will contact them again. Hope I don't burst a blood vessel talking to them ...

Contacted them as well and got my 300 miles. I had 4 offers, if only I did one more :(

Their online chat is fantastic. She was able to find all my purchases.
