BMO Airmiles promo, upto 900 bonus miles for redemptions

Expiry:
October 31, 2014
I don't have a ton of details but wanted to give people a heads up anyway. I received an email back in Sept about a BMO Mastercard/Airmiles promo but didn't pay much attention to it until last week. It was called the "Celebrate your dreams and earn up to 900 Bonus Air Miles reward miles". The promo is that for any redemptions you make until the end of Oct you will earn 300 bonus airmiles, up to 900 bonus miles. I called and asked about any minimum required redemption and was told there was no minimum at all. This means you can redeem for anything and get your 300 bonus miles. The cheapest reward I could find was a contest entry for 50 miles, so I redeemed for 3 of those. The 3 contest entries then cost me 150 miles and I'll earn 900 bonus miles, so a net increase of 750 miles (won't show up until Jan). The one strange caveat is that they said the redemtions had to happen over 3 different days otherwise they'd all count as a single transaction. They doesn't exactly jive with what the T&C on the email said, but it's not a big deal.

Not every BMO/Airmiles customer received this email, so it's worth calling and asking if you are eligible before you go wasting your miles only to be told you aren't eligible. If you can find cheaper rewards, then your net increase will be even higher.

There's a bit of discussion about it in this thread. http://forums.redflagdeals.com/showthread.php?t=1552057 Other offers were mentioned as well, I ended up getting the same offer you did and redeemed it for the night out package which I don't think they are running anymore. I did my 3 transactions in the same day, and already got reimbursed. I ended up with net 300 airmiles plus 3 night out deals, so I think I made out pretty good. Getting 750 airmiles like you did would definitely be better as well ;)

Thanks, didn't see that one. How long did it take for the bonus miles to show up?

I redeemed my 3 rewards Sept 18th and got my bonus miles awarded the 26th. It definitely wasn't that long at all.

I went searching for old emails and yes! I was targeted (Check Sep 10 and Oct 3 for email blast dates)
So I have redeemed 2 Orlando contest entries so far. No bonus miles yet. Must redeem by Oct 31

Thanks

I redeemed mine between Sept 26-29 and haven't seen the bonus miles show up yet. The last time I went for a bonus, last year around thanksgiving, the miles never went in by the deadline. I called in and the added them manually for me (but, IIRC, airmiles told me to call BMO to have them add them). Unfortunately, if they screw up again this time, I will have to wait until Jan to call in, since the ToC says they will be deposited by then.

Took over a month and a half but my 900 bonus points were finally added to my account yesterday.
