    I have a PC Financial credit card and for the last few years it has earned extra points with Esso but not Loblaws own gas stations. To me this didn't make sense since Loblaws has their own gas stations in the parking lot of Loblaws and Superstore, perhaps they are getting out of the gas station business.

    Aeroplan email says they are working on building new partners including gas stations, I hope they stay around, way better flight deals for what we need than airmiles. From Aeroplan email:
    "We're also working on some exciting promotions to help you earn even more miles on places you already frequent, like gas stations! You'll enjoy more choice and flexibility than ever before. Stay tuned!"

    I haven't purchased/used them yet, but this is what I'm doing as well. You can also use them for cruises. There are a few people on here that have used them though.

    I know that several people here have ordered the dream mile vouchers.....I'm talking about the cash mile evouchers. I think I worded it incorrectly in my original post.

    hmmm...that's interesting. I do know that Superstore/Loblaws does NOT own the gas bars that are in the parking lots. They are owned by a different company. That's good news for those people who like to go to Esso. Esso must know that having a rewards program of some sort brings more business...so I see that as a smart business move on their part. I guess I have another option for when we are on road trips to get extra points on gas.

    Not such good news for those who collect Aeroplan! Their stupid program expires every year and it was the one easy place that I could just go and fill up to make sure my points didn't disappear.

    Sobeys Ontario has the Children's Place gift card offer (buy a $25 GC and get 35 AM) for those thinking of doing the megamiles promotion, might be nice to earn a bigger bonus.

    Metro has a sign up thing, get 50 AM by attaching your airmiles to the account. I'm already connected so I guess I'll lose out on that? Not sure of the details really.

    • Lactancia pur filter milk & Beatrice chocolate milk 2 L carton $3.99 buy 2 get 15 AM (SWEET i need milk and this is what i drink -- don't judge :P )
    NOW as @hdrolfe mentioned it also says on the Metro flyer if you link your AM account to your Metro account on the website or download the APP and do it that way you will get 50 AM if you do it ONLY from March 15th - 21st. I am going to be contacting AM about this because ... uhm they updated the APP 2 weeks ago and we could no longer access our personal offers if we didn't do this or go thru the website so this really STINKS! Now they are penalizing us for staying up-to-date with their technology before they offered the bonus miles? Hubby says it's to entice new users and I cry foul for those of us who already use the programme! I'll post what happens later.

    And this weeks Sobey's offers reinforce once again that I will do way better doing the vast majority of my shopping with PC Optimum offers, and just taking advantage of the really big airmiles offers. I'll be happy to stick around in here and chat with and bother all of you though.:rotfl:

    True....if you have one close to you and if there is something there that you need to buy. At least with Esso, I had to get gas, so I wasn't going out of my way to buy something I didn't really need just to maintain my points.

    Small tid bit on the PC front. My DD who is a manager at a RCSS was having lunch with some other managers yesterday and the subject of point thefts came up. Whom ever started the conversation said they had several complaints of thefts. So DD mentions what had happened to me. Later on she gets a phone call from someone at head office because my story had been passed along. They are currently having a huge issue with this and the bulk of it is in QC. My account number is now in the hands of this person from head office. She is pretty sure that once my points are restored that there will also be a bonus for my troubles. A bonus would be nice but to be totally honest I would just prefer that they fix the system to prevent this from happening again. It’s a lot easier to just let my points accumulate than to have to buy gift cards every time I’ve got 20k points and then have to keep them at home.

    Interesting but I can't even recall the last time I got gas at Esso...usually its Shell for air miles, and Petro Canada because it happens to be convenient.

    Well on one hand it’s great that someone will be taking care of this for you. On the other hand, you would think after their huge issues last year they would have done a much better job of securing the accounts.
    As it stands, I think I will cash out every $50 or $100 to a gift card. I plan on holding on to all my points and then doing some Christmas shopping with them and I don’t want to worry that they will disappear all the time.
    Sorry you are still waiting for it all to be fixed.

    Isn't Aeroplan going away in the next two years and changing into something else?

    I'm so happy we used the bulk of of our Aeroplan points to book our April flight to California. As soon as Air Canada starts it's own program we will switch and then try to use as much as possible what we have left in our Aeroplan account before closing it.

    I made two purchases through the AirMiles app. One was for Lowes however the item I wanted (a new shower head) would not ship, it went to store pick up. No problem, I flipped around the corner and picked it up however now I see the AM posted from Lowes and not from AirMiles Shops. I can assume that that one will not count for the MM's? Also, I made the second purchase with Amazon. Nothing has posted for that and I have always had the AM's posted pretty much the same day as delivery. Anyone have any thoughts on that?
    It gets so confusing some times.......
    TIA

    There is usually a short lag, Lowes first, airmilesshops points shortly after. If the airmilesshop points post, they will count for MM. I have done three airmilesshops orders Chapters, Staples since MM started, so far no points reported.
