Usually it’s a case of both Instore & Online Purchases counting for any of the Credit Card Offers
But I am sure we’ll know more after midnight when Offers are revealed in full detail with their T&Cs

T&C is vague. Does anyone have prior experience to know if staples.ca is considered a 2X BMO partner?

Under regular conditions ...
Not all the BMO AMs CCs Offer 2x the Base Miles at AirMiles Partners
(This is just a perk on the Blue CC = https://www.bmo.com/main/personal/credi ... /airmiles/ )

But Staples is a FULL PARTNER with AirMiles
As is their website

I looked at BOTH the Offer for BMO AMs MC
As well as the Staples Offer on the STB 2019 Website

BMO is clearly listing Staples as one of the PARTICIPATING PARTNERS in their offer

And for what it’s worth ...
The STB 2019 Staples Offers that are listed so far state:
They can be used either in store or online

So I think it’s pretty safe to say that YES ... any purchases you make at Staples or Staples.ca will count into your BMO $ 300 or $ 700 Spend

And besides BMO isn’t gonna look closely at what you bought ... they are just interest in WHICH PARTNER and HOW MUCH

PS... if you decide to go the Staples.ca route
Don’t forget TO STACK
You can purchase thru the AirMilesShops.ca website
And maybe also benefit from the STB AirMilesShops.ca Offer if your purchase is over $ 100

Agree

The BMO STB 2019 Offer works on GCs
As BMO doesn’t care WHAT you bought, but rather WHERE & HOW MUCH

GCs buying though from AMs PARTNERS though can be tricky if one is wanting to double dip
Or STACK other STB 2019 Offers

BEST ADVICE - Be Gift Card Saavy
On knowing what will & wont COUNT / STACK

If one reads the START HERE Thread in the STICKIES ... there is a GIFT CARDS TIPS & TRICKS post for info on how to decipher which AMs Partners do give AMs on GCs

I've spoke to CS, they said airmilesshops.ca are not on the list of participating partners which can be used towards the $350. I'm in Ontario, anyone confirm?

Couple of suggestions to kill the multiple offers in one visit.

1. Get GC from Rexall and buy sth worth $40 to use Rexall offer - There is Sportchek GC 15% starting tmr.

2. Buy sth from Staples using Airmilesshops - could do three offers in one order (one for BMO MC to pay, one for Airmilesshops and last for staples offer)

This would make sense because airmilesshops.ca is not technically a "partner" based on their definietion. In other words, if you make a transaction through airmilesshops, BMO would see the store you transacted at in your history, nothing about airmileshops. You can do 2 offers with this though, potentially even 3 - if you shop on airmilesshops at staples, lowe's, or rona, you could potentially do their offer, get the $50 minimum spend for airmilesshops.ca AND get the spend to count towards the BMO offer. Just something to think about for those looking to stretch their dollars for more than one Partner.

Correct

Firstly ... AirMiles Shops.ca doesn’t appear on the list of BMO’s PARTICIPATING PARTNERS for this STB Offer

And second ...

AirMiles Shops.ca is a FULL PARTNER ... but you are actually buying from Associated Retailers thru the AMShops website / portal

So the cash is exchanged between Retailers & You ... not AMShops & you

So ya, it doesn’t count for the BMO STB Offer

The one exception is if the AirMiles FULL PARTNER has a presence on AMShops ...
Those would be:
* HUDSONS BAY
* LOWES
* RONA
* STAPLES
* THE CHILDREN’S PLACE
* WEALTHSIMPLE

Of those ... BMO’s STB Offer ONLY LISTS
LOWES - RONA - or STAPLES as counting
