AIR MILES Rewards
Before revealing to you our tactic to earn 4,000 AIR MILES Bonus miles for free, a quick reminder on the 2 types of AIR MILES rewards: CASH Rewards or DREAM Rewards.
AIR MILES CASH Rewards have the advantage of simplicity.
95 bonus miles = $10, which means 1 bonus mile = 10.5 cents
You can redeem CASH Rewards at your IGA grocery store or JEAN COUTU pharmacy for example.
One sweet spot is for Disney gift cards!
Milesopedia’s members know this: the best time to redeem CASH Rewards is through promotional offers to redeem 75-85 miles for $10.
This increases the value of each CASH Rewards mile (11.8 to 13.3 cents versus 10.5 cents usually).
Thus, the 3,800 CASH rewards miles earned for FREE by the technique described below are worth:
- $400 (95 miles = $10)
- $447 (85 miles = $10)
- $507 (75 miles = $10)
Thus, the 3,800 AIR MILES bonus miles earned for FREE with our technique worth as much as:
- $950 (redeeming at 25 cents per mile)
- $1,520 (redeeming at 40 cents per mile)
More conservatively, we would tell you that these 3,800 AIR MILES bonus miles have a $600 to $800 value.
In a few months, you could earn 3,800 AIR MILES bonus miles for free, thanks to your personal expenses (or even more if you are a couple or self-employed, professional or small business owner)!
For this technique, a total of $4,000 of expenses will be required on the affected credit cards. With good planning, it’s achievable!

Another card... without a minimum income!
If you don’t have the minimum income required by the BMO® AIR MILES® World Elite®* Mastercard®*, you may prefer another credit card that doesn’t require a minimum income!
This is the case with the American Express® AIR MILES®* Platinum Credit Card, which offers a 2,000 AIR MILES bonus miles welcome bonus after $1,500 in card purchases.
AIR MILES business credit cards
