October 6 Update: AIR MILES updates reward catalog policy – we need your help in testing it out!

News, Tips & Tricks

We completed a couple more media interviews over the past few
days now that AIR MILES says they have revised how the reward catalog
displays to members. No longer is it dynamically based on your AIR MILES
program usage and website usage but now it will have rewards based on
your level within the program. Rewards will vary depending on whether
you are Blue, Gold or Onyx with the higher elite levels apparently
having access to more rewards. They also state this was implemented
‘late summer’, convenient isn’t it that the change supposedly came
before the launch of the Class Action lawsuit as this change could
nullify the lack of access to rewards portion of the suit. I smell
something fishy here…..

Anyways lets test it! I am Gold member with nearly 9,000 miles and this is what shows up for me for electronics:

If you are a Blue member or an Onyx member we would love to see what you have showing in the same category. Make sure you do a ‘full’ login, that is click on ‘your profile’ and ‘view transactions’ so that you have to use your pin to login. Then navigate your way to Dream Rewards, Click on Merchandise and then click on electronics followed by computers and tablets. Then take screen shots of what shows up and post them in the comments below!
