Since everyone is focused on back-to-school shopping, you may want to look at the bonus Air Miles’ shopping portal, Airmilesshops. From August 28, 2018 to September 9, 2018, collectors can earn up to 1,000 bonus miles. The bonuses are broken down as follows:
- Earn 1,000 bonus miles after shopping at 5 stores or more (spend $20 per store)
- Earn 300 bonus miles after shopping at 3 stores (spend $20 per store)
- Earn 100 bonus miles after shopping at 2 stores (spend $20 per store)
I value 1 Air Miles at 11 cents each. So 1,000 miles is worth $110 to me. This is actually a very generous bonus offer that is worth pursuing, as you would need to spend $20 per store, times 5 equals $100, plus taxes.
My suggestion would be to break up your purchases between 5 stores to qualify for the full 1,000 bonus if you are making purchases anyway.
