Is it possible to get a Nintendo switch with Air Miles - Cash Miles?

Been collecting cash miles for eight years now and haven't redeemed once so the process is not familiar to me. But as I'm going through the listed retailers who offers eVouchers, I can't seem to find any of them really offering even electronics, minus the nintendo switch I'm looking for.

I'm hoping to get pickup a surprise bday present with my air miles. Can anyone offer me any advice? I guess worst case I would have to buy it in cash

It depends on if Rexall, Jean Coutu or Hudson's Bay carries the product, based on the AM Reward Partners list. You can spend AM cash directly in Rexall and JC and you need redeem for eVoucher for Bay.

Thank you for responding shimh. Hudson Bay does not carry it and I just emailed Rexall, they confirmed they do not either.

I'll look up Jean Coutu next (not familiar with the store).

They do have it, you can redeem it with your miles, but I must say it is A LOT. 9600 air miles for the pokemon bundle, which is equivalent to about 960$ if your a gold member you get 10% off so it would be
8640 miles, and if you're an onyx member it's 20% off so around 7680 miles, equivalent to about 760$.

How much points have you accumulated? If you don't have enough you can probably make up the difference by buying some points and try to see if it helps!

Just redeem your cash miles for groceries, and buy the Nintendo with the money you would otherwise have spent on the groceries. Works out the same as redeeming directly for it. Actually, it works out MUCH better to do it that way if 9,600 Air Miles is needed for a direct redemption on a Nintendo Switch. OUCH!

If anyone has 3750+ AM Reward Miles available that they'd rather get cash for, PM me. I'm not paying a fortune but I'd pay $275 if you purchase a 3750 AMs item for me.
