BMO $250 spend and airmiles shop $100 spend
No. Unfortunately, Indigo is not one of the participating partners for the BMO M/C spend $250 offer.

Can I buy an Apple iTunes gift card from Safeway and have it count towards this AM offer? I keep reading about buying GC’s but I was wondering how they’d link your AM membership to the purchase of a GC if you can’t earn AM’s with a GC purchase.

Indeed.

Has anyone got confirmation from maybe a live chat rep that GC counts toward $250?

It would suck if we lose out on 1000 miles because this offer didn't count as 1 of the 5.

So I ended up talking to live chat regarding this and they did confirm that GC’s count towards the offer as long as they’re purchased from the partner (eg. Safeway). I have paper confirmation of my chat and will provide it with AM’s in the case that it doesn’t count.

Does that double dip then? Say I buy a $50 GC at Safeway, do I earn the BAM from Safeway for spending $50 or more AND $50 gets added to the cumulative spending for this offer?

Nope, clearly states that GC’s don’t count towards the $50 Safeway/Sobeys/IGA offers in the T&C but it doesn’t specify what you can/can’t buy in the BMO offer. I’m only excited for this because I play mobile games so iTunes gift cards are an easy buy.

Ah I see it now.... It didn't show the entire T&C on the Air Miles app but saw it now on the website.

Why would MasterCard care (or even know) that the purchase was for a gift card? They only care about their cut from the merchant, so you are safe to buy $250 just in gift cards.

This offer takes into consideration the total (taxes included) not the sub total right?

Also can I use my wife's BMO Mastercard to count it toward the BMO offer, and use my own Air Miles card for the Mega Mile store specific offer in the same transaction?

At Sobeys this week they have the buy $300 Canadian gift cards, get $25 CT GC. So you can pay $250 on this BMO AM MC toward that $300 (and use anything else to pay the other $50, or just pay the whole $300 with BMO AM MC).

We use CT GCs bought at this type of discounts (they were usually 10% discounts before, this is not as good, but still discount) to buy CT gas. Gas doesn't go on sale, so this is a good way to get discount on gas.

Edit: Add Foodland to Sobeys.
