After the Black Friday sales, it’s time for Cyber Monday on November 26, 2018, those sales that usually only take place online. Let’s take a quick look at what loyalty programs and credit cards offer.
Loyalty programs and Cyber Monday
Several offers have been announced.
Amazon and the American Express Cobalt Card
Today only – Monday, November 26, 2018 – you can earn 5 points per dollar using the American Express Cobalt® Card at Amazon.ca (up to $500 in purchases).
You can earn up to 2,500 select Membership Rewards points with this offer!
And it’s a great opportunity to combine this offer with the Aeroplan netShop or AIR MILES airmilesshops.ca offer (you could even “unlock” an AIR MILES Neighbourhood Spin offer at the same time)
The Aeroplan eStore
For Aeroplan, you’ll have to go tothe Aeroplan online store! In fact, on Cyber Monday (and even through December 2), you can get up to 10 times the miles.
Amazon.ca for example is 5 miles / dollar which is excellent (unlike ebates, this applies to absolutely everything on Amazon).
Example of a winning accumulation
By using the American Express Cobalt® Card today for a $500 purchase on Amazon.ca via the Aeroplan netShop you could get:
|Partner||Points and miles||Total|
|American Express Cobalt™ Card||5 points / dollar||2,500 points|
|Aeroplan||5 miles / dollar||2,500 miles|
|if Silver / Black status||1 mile / dollar||500 miles|
|if Diamond Status||2 thousand / dollar||1,000 miles|
I store regularly on Amazon via the Aeroplan eBoutique, and being a Diamond status, it pays off especially well! Take a look at what it looks like for a $250 purchase:
- Purchase on Amazon.ca via the netBoutique: 250 miles (1 mile / dollar)
- 5 miles / dollar promotion: 1,000 miles (4 additional miles / dollar)
- Aeroplan Diamond Status: 500 miles (2 additional miles / dollar)
That’s 1,750 miles for a $250 purchase. Not to mention the 1,250 points I have accumulated on my American Express Cobaltᵐᶜ Card (5 points per dollar when buying Amazon gift cards at Couche Tard or Metro).
Costco.ca and Aeroplan
On the Costco website, costco.ca, you can earn 4 Aeroplan miles / dollar:
- by registering your Aeroplan account number
- by entering the promo code AERO4 when ordering.
The AIR MILES airmilesshops.ca portal
For AIR MILES, as with Aeroplan, you will need to visit the airmilesshops.ca shopping portal. The offer is 15x AIR MILES miles + exclusive offers.
I would like to take this opportunity to remind you of 2 interesting offers concerning AIR MILES credit cards from BMO:
