What is a multiplier?
(A quick way to earn A LOT.)
A multiplier is a limited-time offer that allows you to earn double, triple, quadruple or sometimes even 10 times the base AIR MILES® reward miles. That's right, we offer anywhere from 2x right up to 10x ... who knows how high we'll go. Multipliers are sometimes offered by a particular online store and sometimes across all 100+ of our online stores.
A Bonus Offer is also a special offer, but it's usually a set amount: for example, spend $50, earn 5 reward miles. Both Multipliers and Bonus Offers are huge earning opportunities that you don't ever want to miss.
Base Offer: 1 AIR MILES® reward mile for every $20 spent, excluding shipping, handling and taxes. Base Offer may vary, click on on-line store logo on airmilesshops.ca for offer details.
(Combine Offers to earn even more.)
There are many opportunities to combine two Multipliers or even a Multiplier and a Bonus Offer.
For example, if we're offering 10x across all 100+ of our online stores and GAP is offering 2x at their store, you'll actually earn on both of those offers when you make a qualifying purchase at GAP during the promotion period. Similarly, if we're offering a 10x across all stores and Sears is offering "Spend $100, Get 20 reward miles" you'll earn on both of those offers as well when you make a qualifying purchase at Sears as well.
(Let's break it down)
When it comes to combining Multipliers, there's one important thing you need to know: you can't earn the base offer twice. Lets review this.
Let's say you spend $100 on books at Indigo.ca through airmilesshops.ca.
The Base Offer is 1 reward mile for every $20. That's 5 reward miles.
Now let's say Indigo.ca is offering a 3x.
You'd earn 3 reward miles for every $20. That's 15 reward miles.
Now let's say airmilesshops.ca has a 10x event going on at the same time.
This is where it gets tricky. Because you've already earned the base offer with the 3x, you can't earn it again with the 10x. Which means you'd actually get 9 reward miles for every $20 spent, which is 45 reward miles. So in the case where the 3x store offer is combined with the 10x Multiplier across our site, you'd earn a total of 60 reward miles. See? We told you. It still adds up to a lot.
Rest assured, you'll get all your reward miles. Just at different times.
Because of the way we process reward miles we can't issue your Bonus reward miles as quickly as your Base reward miles. So don't be alarmed if all of your reward miles don't appear at once. Going back to the example of the purchased books, you'd receive your base of 5 reward miles within the normal 6-8 weeks. The additional 55 Bonus reward miles, which you earned with the 3x and the 10x, will appear later, possibly even at different times. All of your reward miles earned from Multipliers and Bonus Offers are typically posted to your account within 120 days.
