This is billed as a back-to-schooll offer but there is nothing that restricts it to that demographic.
If you can think of five affiliated stores where you want to spend at least $20 each, you can get 1000 AirMiles.
Think ebay, HBC, Indigo, amazon.ca, Staples, Bed Bath & Beyond, etc - stores where you can buy almost anything. Time to stock up on underwear, office supplies, stocking stuffers, batteries, etc.- especially items you can't easily find in a physical store, where you would have to pay for shipping and/or travel costs anyway. Stores such as Groupon has no shipping charge. It appears that Indigo allows gift cards to qualify. Staples has free shipping to a local store.
Basically, you can get all your stuff for free with careful spending, but does not include shipping:
SPEND: 5 x $20 = $100.
GET: 1000 AirMiles = $105. [@ 95 AM = $10] plus basic AM and any store bonus offers.
"Between August 7 and September 9, 2018, Collectors must make eligible purchases of $20 CDN or more, excluding shipping, duty and taxes, in a single transaction at (i) 5 or more different online stores to qualify for the 1,000 AIR MILES® Bonus Miles; or (ii) 3 different online stores to qualify for the 300 Bonus Miles; or (iii) 2 different online stores to qualify for the 100 Bonus Miles.
