BMO introduces 2x the miles accelerated earn rate on its Air Miles Mastercard
TORONTO--BMO and Air Miles have adjusted the reward program on their most popular Mastercard with no annual fee to allow cardholders to get rewards faster at over a dozen participating AIR MILES Partners.
Both new and existing cardholders will now get 2x the Miles at participating AIR MILES Partners - that's 2 Miles for every $20 they spend on their BMO AIR MILES Mastercard at participating AIR MILES Partner retailers across Canada including Sobeys, IGA, Shell, Rexall, Jean Coutu, Safeway, Lawtons and many more. Plus, for a limited time, new customers will also get a welcome offer of 500 Bonus Miles. All this is in addition to the Miles customers will get from AIR MILES Partners when using their AIR MILES Card.
"We are thrilled to enhance the value the BMO AIR MILES Mastercard delivers on purchases at participating AIR MILES Partners," said Jennifer Hawkins, Head, North American Retail Payments, BMO Bank of Montreal. "As always, this enhancement was created with our customers in mind and gives AIR MILES Collectors nationwide even more reasons to use the BMO AIR MILES Mastercard and shop with AIR MILES Partners."
"AIR MILES is always looking to add value to the Program for Collectors by offering ways in which they can get more Miles faster on their everyday purchases at participating Partners," said Blair Cameron, President of the AIR MILES Reward Program. "We're excited to launch these new benefits in partnership with BMO to show Canadians how Miles bring them closer to unique Rewards and experiences."
BMO and AIR MILES have been Partners since the inception of the Program in 1992 - getting 2x the Miles at participating AIR MILES Partners is BMO's best earn rate to date and a benefit to those who are already shopping using their BMO AIR MILES Mastercard.
