AIR MILES and Dollarama
The AIR MILES program has partnered with Dollarama since August 7, 2023 to give miles to its members. The contract was due to expire on November 6, but has been extended to January 31, 2024.
It is not possible to collect AIR MILES miles like at Shell or formerly at IGA. But it’s more in the form of its partnership with Mastercard offers and participating retailers.
From August 7 to January 31, 2024, AIR MILES Collectors with a Mastercard credit card specially linked to the account earn 10 bonus miles on purchases of $30 or more in a single transaction at Dollarama stores.
The same principle is currently being applied to other stores, such as Boston Pizza, Sephora and Via Rail.
Any Mastercard credit card in Canada can be linked to an AIR MILES account. When the Mastercard credit card is registered to the AIR MILES Collector Account, Bonus Miles are awarded according to current AIR MILES offers.
Only one registration is required to link your Mastercard.
How to earn AIR MILES at Dollarama
The following steps are mandatory:
- Go to the AIR MILES website to link your Mastercard credit card
- Purchase $30 or more at Dollarama with your registered Mastercard credit card by January 31, 2024
There is no need to scan your AIR MILES membership card at the Dollarama cash register.
The limit is one offer per day and per member number.
Bonus Miles will also be awarded to BMO AIR MILES Mastercard credit cardholders.
BMO AIR MILES® Mastercard®* cardholders will be able to earn 5x miles on Dollarama purchases until January 31, 2024.
For example, if you link your BMO® AIR MILES® World Elite Mastercard and buy $36 at Dollarama, you’ll get :
- 10 Miles on this purchase of $30 or more
- 5X miles (instead of standard 1X or 3X) per $12 = 15 miles
For a total of 27 miles (worth about $2.83).
Other ways to earn AIR MILES Reward Miles
And, as we mentioned yesterday, a brand new way to collect AIR MILES miles is now available at grocery stores across Canada with AIR MILES Receipts. By scanning a grocery receipt with eligible products, members will earn Reward Miles.
Collectors take a photo of their grocery receipt with the requested products in the AIR MILES mobile application. This must be done within 14 days of purchase to earn Reward Miles.
This news of the partnership extension was to be expected. An AIR MILES representative told us last October that the AIR MILES/Dollarama partnership exceeded their expectations.
Even if you don’t plan to use this new Dollarama offer, remember to register your Mastercard credit card anyway. You never know.
This type of partnership is temporary and will not result in traditional basic accumulation by scanning the AIR MILES membership card at the Dollarama cash register.
But it’s a start!
