Holiday shopping is upon us once again, so it’s time to get organized, and not break the bank. We all want to stretch our dollars as far as possible, and AIR MILES wants to help with the AIR MILES Cash program feature. With miles added through your regular shopping habits, you can get more from your AIR MILES up until December 24th with bonus reward miles being awarded with every AIR MILES Cash redemption, per day, per Sponsor, during this time.
With 95 AIR MILES Cash rewards miles added to your card, Collectors can redeem $10 for instant savings in-store.
So you have your list of people to shop for, and you’re ready to hit the stores and the malls… do start by having a good breakfast that isn’t too sugary-carb-loaded, so that crash-and-burn feeling won’t overcome you an hour after you’ve left home. This can lead to a serious case of The Crankies, which will not help you during a marathon-shop, if that’s what you’re in for. Do yourself a favour and put a bottle of water, and an apple or some nuts in your bag for later.
Wear something comfortable, but put that turtleneck back in the drawer for today – everyone knows malls are hot as Hades – you’ll trudge around feeling like a rain-forest inside your jacket, and your shopping experience will make you feel hateful indeed. That’s a bad start to the holidays. And if you wear something cute, you’ll be less inclined to shop badly. Oftentimes insecurity = bad shopping choices. Plus, when you feel like you look good, you’ll smile more, which can never be a bad thing. Being smiley can have a huge impact on how you perceive your day.
Pharmacies are actually great places to cosmetics gifts, stocking stuffers, chocolates, and even some last-minute items such as ornaments and gift wrap.
But lists of people to buy for, can get longer and longer when we want to show good will towards teachers, neighbours, and all the good people in our lives… this could take all day – especially if you’ve left things to the last minute. Pharmacies are actually great places for cosmetics gifts, stocking stuffers, chocolates, and even some last-minute items such as ornaments and gift wrap. (Even to pick up a bottle of water and some nuts to snack on!) And with every 95 AIR MILES rewards miles on your card, Collectors can redeem $10 cash back in-store. That’s not too shabby when you consider how many gift items (as well as everyday items like toothpaste and toilet paper) a person can pick up at Jean Coutu. Look here for a list of Sponsors in your area.
Best of all, you don’t need anything other than your regular AIR MILES Collector card – simply go to www.airmiles.ca/cashevent to sign up, and select how you’d like to set up your rewards miles balance – use the sliding scale to indicate what percentage of miles should be allotted between the Cash balance and the Dream balance – flexibility is the key, and you can make changes whenever you like. There’s also a very short how-to video just a click away.
Every dollar counts. Maximize yours with your AIR MILES Cash balance while shopping this holiday season, be it for presents, for gas, or for items for your own home. Keep collecting… and happy shopping!

This is so timely! I was just speaking with a friend yesterday about this! I’ve been collecting Air Miles for a while now and keep forgetting to redeem. Perfect!
