AIR MILES Mega Miles Event: 1,250 Bonus Reward Miles when you use coupons at 5 different sponsors

The AIR MILES Mega Miles event launched on May 1st and presents a really nice bonus mile earning opportunity. If you meet the requirement of using Mega Miles coupons at 5 or more sponsors you'll be awarded with 1,250 Rewards Miles over and above the base miles and coupon bonus miles awarded. You'll want to get on this promotion sooner than later however as a maximum of 60,000 members (out of ~10 million) will receive the bonus and although the terms and conditions don't state it we assume they are first come first serve.

Now to earn bonus won't come cheap if you don't have an planned shopping this month at the participating sponsors. On the other hand if you do or can move shopping from one retailer to another that is an AIR MILES Sponsor than you can earn those bonus miles for your everyday regular spending.

The cheapest way we found to earn the bonus simply byy looking at all the details on the coupons would be as follows:
Spend $40 on beauty products at Rexall (80 Bonus Miles coupon)
Spend $60 at Michaels (6x Miles Coupon)
Spend $60 at The Children's Place (20 Bonus Miles Coupon)
Spend $75 at Staples (5x Miles coupon)
Spend $50 at Global Pet Foods (15 Bonus Miles Coupon)

So for $285 in spending you'll earn the 1,250 Bonus Mega Miles Miles plus your base amount plus the coupon bonuses for an additional 140 miles or 1,390 miles in total. We value AIR MILES Rewards Miles at an average of 13 cents each, so you are getting back $180.70 on your $285 in spending, honestly that's not a bad return. For some of you it may take more spending but as we mentioned before if this is shopping you are already planning on doing then jump on the Mega Miles event right away so that you can earn this bonus.

    It is wonderful to be a member of Air Miles and hope to get an American Express or Air Miles
    Credit card someday. We have received coupons for Sobeys or Foodland, with we are able to
    get some cash off our groceries which is very helpful. Thank you

  3. Hi Barbara, there is no contest for the 1250 bonus miles, you simply shop at 5 merchants using 5 coupons per the link in the post. I have removed your comment however as it had your Air Miles # open to the public!

  4. Hi Susan,

    AIR MILES have pulled the T&Cs from the website so I can't tell you exactly. From experience however many promotions like this it can take between 4-8 weeks as they have to wait for all sponsors to post miles earned in May
