AIR MILES Mega Miles Event: Earn 1,250 Bonus Reward Miles when you use coupons at 5 different sponsors
The annual 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.
Now to earn bonus won't come cheap if you don't have any 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 by looking at all the details on the coupons (Alberta region) would be as follows:
Spend $25 on almost anything at Rexall (50 Bonus Miles coupon)
Spend ~$28 on a minimum 25L purchase at Shell (10 Bonus Miles coupon)
Spend $40 at The Children's Place (10 Bonus Miles Coupon)
Spend $45 at Staples (5x Miles coupon)
Spend $50 at Timbermart or Global Pet Foods (25 Bonus Miles Coupon or 15 Bonus Miles Coupon)
That's $188 in spending to earn the 1,250 Bonus Mega Miles Miles but then you have to add in your base amount miles plus the coupon bonuses for an additional ~100 miles or so for 1,350 bonus miles in total. We value AIR MILES Rewards Miles at an average of 13 cents each, so you are getting back $175.50 on your $188 in spending, that is a great return. If you strictly earn cash rewards, then you are looking at a return of about $140, still pretty decent for spending $188. 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.
