Rceived a flash offer to use 95am and get 95 am this weekend, stores are sobeys but in terms and conditions a few more stores include IGA, which lines up with mm offer to use 95 AM this weekend, and it indicates it can be combined with other offers

So redeem 95 AM at IGA will get back 95 plus 5 AM and checks off one mm offer

No idea how to confirm this.

Looks like a case of just seeing what happens

Cause of IGAs Weekly Reporting Schedule, you wont know until it POSTS

Nice if it works though

IGA requires the physical card to redeem points.
Clerk indicated their scanners cannot do the card on the phone.
Must type in the number , so does not work.

When I redeemed on Friday morning at IGA in Quebec (pre email) the Mega Miles coupon came up as promo 118. Not sure if Promo 119 is for the email offer.

50 AM for $100+ this Friday only, part of Mega Miles promo.
Also good to stack this with BMO's $250 cumulative offer if you are doing it.

Çhicken breasts also on sale, so great timing for me :D

I did the redeem 95 airmiles offer at IGA yesterday and it did not go well. Note the cashier has to scan your card and not just type in the numbers for redeeming to work. If he or she just types in the numbers, the computer will say you have zero cash miles, even if you do have miles. It's a security feature, they say.

Yes it's the case in many other stores as well. You need physical card to redeem cash miles.

From my experience and what I was told it isn't about having the physical card, but about scanning the card vs. entering the card information manually. My phone, showing my card using the airmiles app, was scanned to redeem miles yesterday. Do some places refuse to scan the app to redeem miles?

I haven't tried that. But if you can scan a phone, then it's not a security feature, as you can enter any account into the phone.

No, it didn't seem like much of a security feature to me, either. If they were really worried about security, they could just ask us for ID when we redeem.I keep that in my wallet, anyway, which I'm sure to have so I can pay the total amount over a multiple of ten.

If I pay with a gift card, it should still count toward the offer right?
