To get 2k miles, we need to avail of the offers from each of the seven vendors listed or settle for the less common ones? I am not about to buy appliances from Lowes to make $220. :)

Edit: good thing I still have enough AM. It takes AM to make more AM, just like money.

Last year AM added some extra coupons as time went by so hopefully they'll eventually add some Sobeys, Foodland and LCBO coupons. For those that haven't played this promo look very closely at the coupons- some you'll need to print out (cashier must enter promo code). Last year rec'd 2300?? AM and spent approx $100.

Just to clarify... 2 offers from shell would count as 2? Or limit 1 per store?

Do these points count for 6000 points you need to achieve Onyx Status?

They do. And even though they may not post to your account until the new year, as long as you earned them in 2017, you’ll get Onyx by March.

Yes, and also the rexall coupons. They gave different sets of dates.

Thanks to @skylighter for the early promo details and Ontario offers - added to main post.

I've formatted the deals with the ending date of the offers from earliest to latest and will strike out the deals as they expire. Hopefully this helps members remember when to buy. :)

If there is an offer/coupon direct link, I'll add it to the offer's timeframe (ie. [ Nov 23 to Nov 26 ] ).

I'll try to add the remaining provinces when more offers come in (likely when the site goes up Nov 14).

Interesting thought: Last year the level miles received were 285 ($30), 950 ($100) and 1,900 ($200). This year they are 300, 1,000 and 2,000 - possible miles devaluation in the new year?

I checked the Ts&Cs, they have no recognition of 7 different retailer, and I remember last year, I use the same retailer a few times, so I would say it should be ok.

I would think that it's because of inflation? Things in general are getting more expensive and air miles redemption are less valuable (i.e. every unit of air mile can redeem less unit of goods as time goes by) so they have to increase the unit of air miles reward to make up for it? lol just my wild guess :)

[ Nov 23 to Nov 26 ] - Metro - Redeem 95 Air Miles For $10 And Get 25 Air Miles Back

Those are the offers that I like best. Use up those Air Miles, but get some extra for the next redemption bonus ... Too bad only 4 days, typically one per day per collector.
