    I'm back from my Rexall's shop. The Cashier today told me that Rexall's has stopped stacking coupons as of May something... I forget the date she said. May 1st? Anyways, I asked her to try scanning both regardless. She was willing to try and seemed surprised when I received the 200 air miles. Now, she is my regular Cashier and always has coupons to scan for any collector that does not have one or has forgotten and knows the multiple offers has stacked for quite some time. So I wonder if Rexall really is trying to stop stacking.

    In any case, I did NOT load the L+G coupon. I printed both and had both scanned before my Air Miles card was scanned. I'm glad I didn't load the coupon. I totally missed that the bar code would have to be scanned and would have thought the stacking has stopped.

    I just bought usual grocery and hygiene items that were at a good price. Hey, turns out they now sell M&M products! I didn't even notice. My friend came with me and she bought a stack of M&M soups and frozen meals.

    Very few I imagine. Have you ever read the posts people leave on Air Mile's Facebook page? So many angry people all the time. I cannot understand how anyone keeps participating in a loyalty program without learning the ins & outs.

    That was the one flyer I didn't look at before I left the house for the morning. Now I just have to figure out how to get across the Ottawa River. A little strategic timing with traffic (a bridge downtown is closed due to the flooding and traffic from Quebec is a mess as a result). Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

    Stopped at Rexall on my lunch, bought some stuff I really don't NEED but I wanted :) and totally forgot the one item I do need. sigh. Any way! she scanned both and both worked! She went over the receipt to make sure so I could know which one worked or not. I forgot to check if my loaded offer worked, and the receipt is in my car (brand new car, that now smells like new car plus Harvey's onion rings).

    Planning our next Disney trip. Hoping to save up as many miles as possible so we can buy some of the 6 park tickets we will need.

    Another question, has anyone ever been able to buy a Disney annual pass with miles? I know there was discussion about Universal annual passes.

    My Rexall shop was successful too. Side note: What kind of car did you get. New car is soooo exciting. Onion rings from Harveys, Yummmmm

    Discussions here have been around purchasing park tickets then upgrading them at Disney to Annual passes. If you are ONYX you might try the personal shopper service to see what price they have on them.

    Hyundai Kona in Tangerine. It's very fancy (to me) and quite nice to drive so far. Who knows, now that I have this car maybe I will feel like driving to Florida sometime. I am looking into day trips in the area, and hoping Airmiles updates their Canadian Attractions tickets.

    Off to search for details on upgrading. Do you have to upgrade in person? Or can you do it online?

    My Rexall shop:

    $51 - $5 survey coupon= $46 plus taxes, received 252am (100 printed coupon, 100 app coupon, 50 mailed coupon from Sobeys promo booklet (no idea why no one else seems to have these) + 2 base miles).

    Nice cashier. Perhaps they are restricting Rexall L+G from stacking??? The app coupon isn't exactly a L+G coupon as you don't even need to load it, I didn't, just needs the cashier to scan it like they scan the printed coupon. I guess we will see.

    @blue888 I believe everyone who has done the upgrade has had to do it in person.

    So if you do it in person, can you still book AP hotel rates? Or is it a better deal to just buy the AP with $ online, so you can book hotel?

    Rexall shop for me,,,,two 50 spends with one load and go offer
    total airmiles earned 415 (both barcodes scanned no problem)I printed both out,,which is good because Sobeys doesn't have much I want or need.
    Hugs

    Hit up Rexall & both coupons scanned, the survey coupon didn't work but I wasn't expecting it to because I went to the store that NEVER lets them stack with any other offer of ANY KIND. I have no idea how their POS system is different from anywhere else but I wasn't about to venture any further because it was threatening to rain!

    Best score? I needed to grab more Ensure for the inevitable gastritis attacks and always carry around a coupon because the stuff i use is extremely $$$ $12.99 for a box of 4. It was on sale for $6.99 and my coupon was for $5 :cool1:

    I'll get around to the flyer updates in a bit, trying to plow thru all the Marvel Movies so i can finally see Endgame this weekend. popcorn::popcorn::popcorn::

    Yeah. This was my experience with my closest Rexall too. This is not the first time that coupons failed with them, so I’m wondering about going further afield with coupons...

    OO-EM-GEE! I was just poking around the Airmiles website to see if there's anything new and this popped up, I'm THRILLED to think that my online shopping might actually work without some serious chasing down. They've added a chrome extension!!! It looks pretty slick, I'm able to tell right away that I'm signed into my account while I'm shopping, I'm liking this!

    Airmilesshop Portal Assistant via Chrome Extension

    I'm currently looking for a hotel for this weekend, decided to check Expedia and this is how it appears, i clicked on the little airmiles symbol on the browser bar and this drop down showed up

    It doesn't seem to work for every store but it's a huge step in the right direction!

    I just added it as well. I don't do a whole lot of online shopping but if it reminds me to take advantage great.

    Ok, this is very very strange... This morning I read an e-mail from Air Miles just before I headed out to Rexall with a friend. I told her about the e-mail. I wondered if it was sent out by mistake as I could not figure out why it would have come to me. I planned on coming back here to ask if anyone has heard of one thing in particular that caught my attention in the e-mail.

    Now, the e-mail is GONE! Seriously - gone. I did not delete it. It is not in my inbox or deleted folder. I thought maybe I dreamt this but I just double-checked my firefox history and I did try googling for the answer this morning before we went to the store. Now I know companies can "modify" an e-mail sent to people but I never heard of deleting an e-mail before... So weird.

    In any case, the e-mail was about Air Miles starting a new partnership with landlords. I skimmed through it but basically they are offering landlords to opportunity to earn Air Miles through their rental property at the rate of 1 air mile per dollar. It offered examples that said if they were receiving $2,000 in rental fees they would earn 2,000 miles. $6,000 a month would earn 6,000 air miles a month. I almost wish we still had a house we rented out a while back.

    What caught my attention was the e-mail specifically said this would get them a Onyx status level 4. I never heard of levels being attached to Onyx before. Has anyone? This is what I tried googling for information on this morning.

    Did anyone else get this e-mail?

    EDITED TO ADD: I just googled "air miles landlords" and found this link! I definately was not dreaming. https://www.rentperks.com/index.php/promotions.html
