What are AIR MILES points?
AIR MILES are points that you can collect to redeem for rewards, such as travel tickets and discounts at select stores. To receive AIR MILES points, you can:
Save miles by purchasing from participating merchants
Using an AIR MILES credit card
You can buy them directly on airmiles.ca (handy if you have points before redeeming a reward)
The number of miles you earn with your purchases depends on the retail partner, which equates to one reward mile for every $ 20 spent. When you use an AIR MILES credit card, you have double the amount at participating merchants.
You can claim your points as Cash Miles, Dream Miles or both. You have control over the distribution of your miles and can change them at any time online.
How many AIR MILES points do you need for a flight?
Everything is calculated according to the distance. In general, you can use your Dream Miles for short-haul flights. Redeeming miles for return tickets on these popular routes will cost:
