So I have an Air Miles card and I swipe it every time I go to Metro for groceries, the liquor store and of course when I get gas from Shell. However, I have never, ever, looked up my points. I decided tonight – what the heck, let’s check it out. I had only 1251 points! I have been collecting for over 10 years and I only have 1251 points! I was pissed!!!!!
Until I went and looked at what I could redeem. I saw The Keg gift certificates. I could redeem 875 points for a $100.00 gift card!!! WHAT! AWESOME! I immediately traded in my points and a $100.00 gift card is on its way!
Then I had about 300 + points left so I kept shopping! I bought a $25.00 gift card to Chapters/Indigo for 220 points! This place is awesome! I could totally get birthday presents from here and I have to pay nothing! WOOT WOOT
Now don’t get me wrong, I am well aware, I spend a fortune at Shell, Metro and the LCBO in order to collect these points, but I shop here anyway so I am not spending anything I wouldn’t anyway! I usually go to ESSO to get my gas cause it’s more convienient, but really – for AM points, I will cross the street and get the gas at Shell! I just got $125.00 worth of gift certificates for doing nothing out of the ordinary. Even if I can only do this every 5-10 years, its a cool option I never explored before! YAY ME!
