What You NEED to know before Shopping Online!


Frugal Fact: I’m an avid points collector.

Why not have your regular purchases give you points to use on more shopping? I consider that a no-brainer when it comes to smart shopping and making the most bang for the buck.

Yet, even the keenest frugalistas might not know about airmileshops.ca. I was recently introduced to this site and am BLOWN AWAY!

Did you know you can earn AIR MILES by shopping online?

airmileshops.ca really is the hottest tool for online shopping, as you can shop your favorite stores online and collect those points. Fact is, you might already be a regular shopper at many of the 100+ major brand retailers.

My tip {and what I’ll be doing} is to visit airmileshops.ca when I first set out to shop, instead of going directly to the online stores.

It’s as easy as 1-2-3, my friends:

  • Sign In – Sign in with your AIR MILES Collector Number & check out the 100+ retailers available
  • Shop – Select the retailer you want to shop with and you will be taken to the retailer’s online site to shop as you normally would
  • Earn – When you check out you will earn AIR MILES reward miles on your purchase!

After I found out about airmilesshops.ca, I realized that I missing out on a lot of AIR MILES, for quite some time now. In fact, the last was just a month ago when we purchased a family vacation package {with flights} via Expedia.ca.

I cringe over the points I missed with that purchase alone let alone other purchases at the Apple Store, Old Navy, Amazon.ca … hold me, I’m feeling faint!

Better late than never, this will change my online shopping!

Think of the online purchases you’ll be making soon. Whether you’re hunting online for that perfect Father’s Day gift, new patio furnature for your outdoor space, or those must-have items for Summer travel and fun in the sun – make sure you shop through airmilesshops.ca. Now and always, especially during Christmas. Think of all the points you’ll collect!

  1. yeah, been doing this for years back when it was yourshops.ca , I tend to buy too much from amazon LOL, but tigerdirect is there too and a few other places

    1. I love this, I had no idea! I used to try and not shop online because of points, shipping etc yet it seems to get better and better. There’s a lot of perks to shopping online!

    1. Yes, I think I might be better at remembering to use AIR MILES online than in the store from now on!

  2. I have been shopping online and collecting points for a few years, i only found out when i won the airmiles contest (8years ago), it was a 5000.00 online mastercard then. I had the best time shopping!! lol

      1. so much! it was like Christmas everyday!
        i bought my son an xbox, i bought clothes, gave my brothers and sister gift cards for stores they liked, my friend a gift card for a store she liked.
        I was on maternity leave at that time so it was great i could buy a lot of Christmas gifts for family.
        It was the best!

  3. I used to collect air miles online but I found if rather have cash backs from other sites. Air miles redemption for airfare has really high taxes. The price to purchase the flights seems better.

      1. I guess it depends what you can redeem for. Calculated out redeeming for a Dyson Airblade fan but cents per mile wasn’t that great so ended up buying a refurb from Dyson.

        1. very true! I was using up points once and could have got small kitchen items, yet they were at a bit of a higher cost that sales near me. So I ended up getting something else, a vacation! Great frugal tip!

    1. You have to be very diligent and always remember, then it becomes habit. The best kind of habit! lol

  4. That is awesome! I like point programs too but rarely do they have enough of the stores I like for me to remember to check before hand. This one looks great though, thanks for sharing!!

    1. Make sure to check it out next time you go to shop, any points are better than no points, and the shops? They are the ones I shop at most!

  5. I do lots of reward programs, but am always amazed at how many other ones are out there. I wish I could always remember to check before buying, though.

    1. There are a ton, yet I stick with about 3 to make sure I get the most of them! Always have those cards handy!

    1. I hear ya, it’s always a kick in the pants to realize you forgot. Redeeming points is part of my frugal plan, I have redeemed for an entire vacation before!

    1. Agreed Mitch, my rule is to only purchase if it’s a steal of a deal or I get points/offers attached.

  6. I always try to collect air miles wherever we shop. Interestingly my in-laws used to be able to collect air miles on many farming purchases and over the years had collected so many they were able to fly us all to Mexico. 🙂 I’ll be checking out that site; thanks for the heads up.

    1. Every point helps, thats for sure. You may think that missing it once doesn’t matter, but those little lost points add up fast! Whether a vacation or a free pots and pan set, it’s all saving you money in the end. LOVE AIR MILES!! 🙂

  7. Oh this is incredible! Thanks for letting me know about this, will definitely be using this site all the time!

  8. I’m so proud of all the points I’ve collected, even manage to use the special coupons that come out for bonus points. excited to start collecting them online now too, thank you for this post!

  9. This may be a stupid ?. Sorry in advance, I am new to your site. :)Does airmiles work in the US too? I shop at all of those on line stores and would love to earn something! Thanks for sharing.

    1. I’m not sure of US policy on this, i would look at the AIR MILES site and check out their FAQ’s!

    affiliates for each prospect or customer referred by the
    affiliate’s own marketing efforts. You then take an ad
