Air Miles has lowered qualification levels for some programs
Do you collect Air Miles?
As of today, the AIR MILES Reward Program is reducing the number of Reward Miles required to qualify for its highly sought-after AIR MILES Gold and Onyx collector statuses. AIR MILES collectors will now only need to earn 500 Miles (instead of 1,000 Miles) within one calendar year to qualify for AIR MILES Gold status, and only 5,000 Miles (instead of 6,000 Miles) within one calendar year to reach AIR MILES Onyx status. Collectors qualifying for a status change will be automatically upgraded.
“Gold and Onyx collectors are already our highest engaged collectors, benefitting from more trips and more merchandise with Dream Miles and getting more everyday products for free with Cash Miles just for shopping at the 300-plus brands issuing the AIR MILES currency,” said Shawn Stewart, President, AIR MILES. “As part of our commitment to uncover new value for the millions of Canadians who carry our card in their wallet or have our app on their phone, we regularly review our status benefits to ensure we are providing Canadians with a robust program that offers the choice, flexibility and value consumers are looking for. Reducing the number of Miles required to achieve Gold and Onyx tiers is yet another way we’re making the collector experience even more meaningful.”
With this exciting enhancement to the program, more AIR MILES Gold and Onyx status collectors can receive exclusive benefits and discounts. Gold collectors can enjoy bonus offers, access to exclusive experiences, and more value with up to 5% fewer Miles when redeeming for merchandise items, select flight discounts and more. Onyx collectors will receive an automatic upgrade to Shell Go+ status (until December 31, 2022), personal shopper service and priority customer service, and they’ll enjoy bonus offers and continue to get more value with up to 10% fewer Miles required when redeeming for merchandise items, select flight discounts and more.
This enhancement follows the recent launch of a new card benefit on BMO AIR MILES World Elite and BMO AIR MILES Mastercard products that provide cardholders with a 2x-the-Miles multiplier on any eligible grocery store purchase – demonstrating that, as a program, AIR MILES is committed to introducing new ways to reward its collectors with more flexibility and value.
