So, how does this all work?

A: In a nutshell, here’s how AIR MILES® SHOP THE BLOCK® works:

  1. Use offers at participating Partners from November 19 to December 28, 2020.
    • Use offers at 3 different Partners, get 300 Bonus Miles.
    • Use offers at 5 different Partners, get 800 Bonus Miles.
    • Use offers at 7 different Partners, get 1,200 Bonus Miles.
  2. We’ll add up the number of offers you used at different Partners and award your Bonus Miles within 120 days after the promotion.
  3. Enjoy your Bonus Miles!

The Miles you get for using 3, 5 or 7 different offers are in addition to the Bonus Miles you get on each Partner offer used.

How long does the promotion last?

A: The promotion begins on November 19, 2020 and ends on December 28, 2020.

I’m concerned about handing over my AIR MILES Card. How can I still participate in SHOP THE BLOCK?

A: We have hands-free options that allow you to participate in SHOP THE BLOCK while practicing physical distancing:

  • Hold up your AIR MILES Card and the offer for the cashier to scan; or
  • Tell the cashier your Collector Number; or
  • Use your digital Card on the AIR MILES App, at select stores; or
  • For Partners who have curbside pick-up, give your Collector Number over the phone with your order.

Where can I get the offer coupons?

A: All our SHOP THE BLOCK® offers can be found on our website. Offers can also easily be found on the AIR MILES® App – download on the App Store or on Google Play. Remember to take your coupons with you when you shop!

Why can’t I find a coupon booklet?

A: In an effort to be more environmentally friendly and to facilitate shopping with zero contact, printed coupon booklets will no longer be offered for SHOP THE BLOCK®. As always, you can check out all Partner offers at www.airmiles.ca/ShopTheBlock or, if using the AIR MILES® App, look for offers labelled “SHOP THE BLOCK.” Don’t have the App? Download it from the App Store or on Google Play.

How do I use my SHOP THE BLOCK® coupons?

A: There are generally five ways to use the coupons, depending on the Partner. Some offers may require you to show the barcode or cashier code at checkout, opt in online or visit a website for more details, and some offers may require no coupon at all. Check the back of each offer coupon to be sure.

How do I print my coupons?

A: While most offers do not need to be printed to be used, you can still print them if you wish.

  1. On the offers page of the SHOP THE BLOCK® site, make sure that all the offers you want to use are “saved.”
  2. If your offers are printable, you can print them right away using the “Print all offers” button, or email them to yourself and print them later using the “Email all offers” button.

I don’t have a printer. How can I take advantage of the SHOP THE BLOCK® offers?

A: There are a few ways to use SHOP THE BLOCK® offers. If a coupon is required, you can display it from your mobile device. Other offers require you to opt in beforehand, while some need no coupon at all. The best way to know is to visit www.airmiles.ca/ShopTheBlock and check the Terms and Conditions of a specific offer.

What counts as an offer towards my SHOP THE BLOCK® Bonus?

A: Each SHOP THE BLOCK® Partner offer can only be used once towards the Bonus for using 3, 5 or 7 different Partner offers. You must meet the Terms and Conditions for Partner offers to qualify.

How do I know if the Bonus Offers I used counted towards my SHOP THE BLOCK® Bonus?

A: Visit airmiles.ca/myaccount to view your recent transactions. Please keep in mind that Bonus Miles from coupons may take up to 120 days to appear on your statement. Always check the Terms and Conditions of each offer by referring to the back of the physical coupon or by visiting airmiles.ca/ShopTheBlock and clicking “How to use.” Always present your AIR MILES® Card at time of purchase and keep your receipt(s).

Will I only get Bonus Miles if “SHOP THE BLOCK®” is printed on the receipt?

A: Don't worry if it doesn’t say “SHOP THE BLOCK®” on your receipt. Some Partners have the ability to print the promo name on their receipts, while others don’t. As long as you use the offer correctly and show your AIR MILES® Card at the time of the transaction, the offer will count towards your SHOP THE BLOCK® Bonus.

When will the Miles be added to my Collector Account?

A: The Bonus Miles you get from each Partner offer, as well as the Bonus Miles you get from using offers at 3, 5 or 7 different Partners, will be deposited into your Collector Account within 120 days after the promotion ends.

Please note: Partner Miles and Miles you receive for using 3, 5 or 7 offers may be deposited into your Collector Account at different times.

Will I still receive Bonus Miles if I made a purchase and the cashier did not scan my coupon?

A: It depends on the coupon. Not all offers need to be scanned. Always check the Terms and Conditions of each offer by referring to the back of the physical coupon or by visiting airmiles.ca/ShopTheBlock and clicking “How to use.” Always present your AIR MILES Card at time of purchase and keep your receipt(s).

Where will my 300, 800 or 1,200 Bonus Miles go?

A: The Bonus Miles you get from using SHOP THE BLOCK® offers at 3, 5 or 7 different Partners will be deposited into your Collector Account based on your current Cash/Dream balance preference.

What counts as a Partner towards my SHOP THE BLOCK® Bonus?

A: Check the “Offers by Partner” tab on airmiles.ca/ShopTheBlock. Each logo counts as a different Partner. To qualify for the 300, 800 or 1,200 Bonus Miles, you need to use 1 offer at 3, 5 or 7 different Partners.

What happens if I use more than 1 offer from the same Partner?

A: Only 1 offer per Partner counts towards the 3, 5 or 7 offers needed to get 300, 800 or 1,200 Bonus Miles. But you can absolutely use more offers at the same Partner to get the Bonus Miles for that specific offer.

Will my Partner offer only count if it gets posted with “SHOP THE BLOCK®” in my transaction history?

A: Don’t worry if it doesn’t say “SHOP THE BLOCK®” in your transaction history for a Partner offer you used from the website or from the coupon booklet. Some Partners have the ability to post Bonus Miles with the promo name in your transaction history, while others do not. As long as you used the offer correctly and showed your AIR MILES® Card at the time of the transaction, the offer will count towards your SHOP THE BLOCK® Bonus.
