For TIPS & TRICKS

* FOR BEST RESULTS use the REGISTRATION PORTAL LINK that is on the AMs MegaMiles Website inside the OFFER ... HOW TO USE INSTRUCTIONS

* T&Cs clearly say it’s a ONE TIME OFFER ... and those who previously enrolled DO NOT QUALIFY

If I have not previously registered HBC rewards, does it mean I am qualified for the bonus once I enrolled? Thx

Yes. This would be one easy freebee for you. Even if you don't already have HBC account, you can open one up and do auto conversion to AM

Yes.

You sign up for HBC Rewards... as stated above best done by going thru the Registration Portal found on the Offer @ www.airmilesmegamiles.ca
Within 2 weeks you should get a pile of HBC Rewards Points
Then those will Auto Convert to AMs within 2 more weeks

You don’t have to spend any money at HBC / The Bay
But if you do in the future, and still have the Auto Convert in place, the process is similar
The HBC Rewards Points to AirMiles Rate = 40 HBC = 1 AM

Everything you need to know about HBC Rewards Earn Rates can be found on the HBC Rewards website

Seems they added to to the fine print that this won't count if you did it before... guess too many complaints from STB haha...

That has always been in the T&Cs

Yet many RFDers found it was a loophole / case of YMMV

Seems based on 2018 STB that HBC plugged it / enforced it
As lots of RFDers tried then and did not succeed

HBC was fast this time. I started auto conversion on Friday and today 3 of our accounts have 15BAM bonus. They may or may not award the other 15BAM later since we have been doing this more than once already

Does it still count if you newly enroll, but don't spend anything at HBC (i.e. have 0 points to convert)?

I did that in 2017 and got the bonus miles.
did it again in 2018 and also got the BAM (in fact I got 60 BAM total for some reason).
Trying it again for 2019.

Although I did get the 30 BAM, I am unsure if it counted as an offer, because I always end up doing 1 or 2 extra offers anyways as a backup when possible.

Never spent anything at HBC, did the conversion 3 times and got BAM all 3 times. I don’t know if it was counted as an offer for 2nd & 3rd because I had more offers than required

Ok, I was mistaken, the HBC BAM was for Onyx/Gold accounts and nothing to do with auto conversion. I got 15BAM for Onyx and 9BAM for Gold., @PrisonMike in the AM general discussion thread mentioned this

For those that actually collect HBC points, is this a good conversion rate or should I just keep them as HBC points? I have a ton and there is a real risk to losing value with conversion to another program. Has anyone done the math?
