When I called in to comfirm stores they told me the only store in my area was safeway that would qualify, even though I have a save-on down the block. When i asked about save-on she said not wouldnt qualify??!!

In Quebec, Metro owns Super C. I would presume that Super C would also be included.

I initially called to find out if M&M food store was included and she said no. So I went through a list of local stores and she said only safeway. I can't see why save-on wouldn't be categorized as grocery. I think she was wrong too.

This is pretty good, it's essentially 40% off if you use them as cash miles. You can just go to any grocery store and buy $100 of gift cards. Time to get 40% off Netflix for a year!
Using cash miles at 95AM per $10 redemption, gives a value of each AM 10.53 cents.
At that value, 400AM is worth exactly 42.12
Sweet deal!
Unfortunately I don't have an AM credit card.

There's no Zehrs or Food Basics?
Aren't they Loblaws stores that do not accept Amex?

Zehrs is a Loblaws brand for sure. Pretty sure Food Basics is owned by Metro and should be okay.

Used Amex Airmiles card in Foodbasics last month. According to the statement, the transaction is categorized as "Earn rate 1/$15", even Foodbasics is not actually Airmiles partner but its parent company Metro is. So Foodbasics should be qualified.

The list is intended to cover places where grocery is sold and AMEX accepted. I have no idea whether AMEX treats these stores as grocery locations for the purpose of this promotion. And from what I am gathering, even AMEX's own reps are not clear on this either. Perhaps whoever used AMEX at these locations before can confirm via their online statements whether their transactions are categorized as grocery or not.
