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.
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.

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.

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.
