How do you enter the codes at self checkout?

Just bought the pizza on sale (9.99) and used coupon code 83929 AND 82229. Receipt shows 75 air miles and was told I'd still be getting the 50 bonus AM mentioned in the flyer. I did redeem 95 AM points for $10.00 and bought a dipping sauce just to be sure I was over $10.00 so there'd be no problems.

Sorry for the photo - receipt got crushed in my pocket.

My receipt looks like the same. The total was less than $10 so I had to buy a plastic bag.

I redeemed 95 miles this afternoon. My receipt shows bonus Air Miles 100. The cashier entered the PLU and then did the Redemption. This is a store where I normally shop so I had other bonuses loaded so I walked away with a hundred and sixty-four miles.
This Metro thing is a bit confusing. I consider myself an experienced AM collector. Today my receipt shows only 50 miles, yesterday it showed 100 not sure what's going on. Same store and entered the same way. Anybody else experience the same?

I don't consider myself an experienced AM collector and yes, I find confusing too!

So, on your second receipt, is the 100 for +50 MM and +50 Metro Flyer?

Doing AM Chat after Metro shop, depending on the rep you get, confuses me even more!

ie. I was told: "To prevent confusion Metro has combined the offers so that now it is only one offer for using 95 Cash Miles and get 50 Bonus Miles. The only difference is if you use the PLU code, it will count for the Mega Miles promotion. So you will be receiving a total of 50 Bonus Miles for using 95 Cash Miles."

Altho based on your receipt and @johnb56789 AM chat, one "should" get back 100 BAM if use 1 PLU Redeem 95 for 50 BAM = 83929 and none for Metro Flyer Offer?!

I just bought the pizza and 1 banana.

The 3 MM codes stacked for 100 AM total on receipt.

Used:
82228: old 25AM code for redeeming 95AM
82229: 25 AM on pizza
83929: new 50AM code for redeeming 95AM

Now waiting to see if I get the additional 50AM flyer deal.

Would be great if I can get 150AM back on a redemption of 95AM for the pizza!

So just to confirm, this 83929 code for 50AM when you redeem 95 is valid for Mega Miles?

Just came back from Metro Warden & Finch.
I used my 95 Miles to get 2 Kellogg’s cereal $4.99 each + a plastic bag = $10.05
I could use 2 codes 82228 and 83929 to receive 25 and 50 Miles, respectively, there was another mysterious 5 Miles that I don’t know where it’s from but I will take it.

Not sure whether I will get another 50 BAM as aforementioned posts but getting 80 out of 95 Miles ain’t bad.
Plus, with 2 Kellogg’s boxes I am gonna get $5 for gas later so all in all, free stuff and free money :)

My Metro just got the self checkouts installed this week so employees are still learning. When I did my first one on Thursday, they screwed up and couldn't get any code in. Today, I am like a pro :), entering 2 codes and not just one (thanks to @johnb56789 with the details instructions). In fact, I heard one Metro employee whispering to another behind me saying " he just did it, he entered the code where we couldn't help other lady to do that earlier". I actually felt bad for the employees, they were very excited and helping out customers with their new "toys". But ironically, some of them will loose their jobs because of the new machines :(

It just occurred to me that the cashier entered the 50 BAM plu (83929) but I did not redeem 95 miles for $10 off. Has this happened to anyone else? My receipt shows the bonus 50 miles on it. Thankfully there is one day left so I could go tomorrow to enter the plu again and redeem the miles. This was not intentional...just slipped my mind. TIA!

This is definitely one of the most confusing AirMiles Offers OF ALL TIME

Technically they are two different MegaMiles offers
PLU # 82228 = 25 BAMs (April 11th thru April 14th)
PLU # 83929 = 50 BAMs (April 11th thru April 14th)

And as such, where a COUPON NEEDS to be presented (Show Cashier)
They SHOULD NOT STACK
But because the Offer is also in the flyer ... and NO COUPON REQUIRED
It seems they do...
in some situations
But not all...

This is a mess, IMO

Some folks getting just 25 BAMs
Some folks getting just 50 BAMs (like myself)
And some folks both

GIANT FAIL ... on the part of Metro

YES it appears on the MegaMiles Website = www.airmilesmegamiles.ca

It’s confusing because the website took down the original 25 AMs Offer (PLU 82228) for the same timeframe and replaced it with this one for 50 AMs (PLU 83929)

While at the same time, advertising the 50 AMs Offer in their flyer this week... but stating that NO COUPON is required

Did you actually tell the cashier to enter all those PLU's or can we do this at self-checkout?

I did at self checkout as didn't want to ask cashier.

However, self checkout at SOME Metros still may require Attendant to enter PLU's vs entering yourself.

I bought pizza + banana ... Even if I don't get back additional +50 from Metro flyer

25+50+25 or 100 AM

= $11.50 - $10.50 (100 AM)
Or $1 * for pizza + banana

* not double counting $10 redemption :)

Try it and let us know if it works for you!

I dont want to either tbh LOL. But I thought you had to pay at the pizza spot where they make it and you cant just take it to the normal cashier? Im not too familiar with Metro...

Which location did you attend where you didn't need the attendant? I have a choice between the following locations to go to:

1090 Wilson Ave, North York, ON M3K 1G6
2900 Warden Ave, Scarborough, ON M1W 2S8
