The ever popular AIR MILES Mega Miles event was slated to start tomorrow but it has now been postponed in light of COVID-19 situation in Canada. AIR MILES reached out to us this morning and provided the following:
“As a result of the developments surrounding COVID-19, we have decided to postpone the MEGA MILES promotion currently planned to launch on March 19, 2020.
As we continue to learn more about COVID-19 situation and respond accordingly, new dates have not yet been selected. We ask Collectors for their patience while we work on finalizing new dates for MEGA MILES. We will proactively communicate the new MEGA MILES dates when they are solidified.”
AIR MILES also advised us that they will update the airmiles.ca/megamiles site with an FAQ later today.
In some ways I’m not surprised they have postponed it given the current situation, I do hope however that AIR MILES and its sponsors come out with some healthy promotions for the type of shopping people will need to be doing over the coming weeks – groceries, drug stores etc. as this is the time collectors (especially those who choose Cash Miles) will be relying heavily on the programs to help ease the financial burden many may face during this time.
