The day that I had to order something I only got 2x on the game and the next day I got 5x but my item was only on sale until the first day so at least I got 2x.
Edited to add Ticketmaster shop.
So I just realized that Ticketmaster is an airmiles shop so now I will wait and see if I can get a good times multiplier before I order my tickets for the event I am going to see. The seats that I want have been there for a while yet so I think that they won't go away before I get to order them. Bonus - fingers crossed for a good multiplier soon. Total seat cost will be $495 so base will be 24 air miles.

    I've been racking my tired brain trying to figure out what I got 25AM from Metro for. I won't look a gift horse in the mouth. I was reading the Sobeys flyer where they have 25AM for signing up for emails and it occurred to me that Metro had a sign up not long ago.

    I was in Metro and wanted to check my DH card. I had to remove my card from the app then sign up for his card. Then I went back in and removed his card and signed up again using my card to see one of my offers. I think I may have received 25AM on his card and then 25AM on my card for doing this.

    I didn't think anything about it at the time because I didn't expect that I would get 25AM for signing up as I have been signed up for years. Is this a glitch we haven't known about? Next time they have one of these promotions does anyone else want to try?

    We just came back from a week-end out near Ottawa area. and stopped in for gas at Shell to see 5x for regular. Fine enough I could barely fit in 27 liters so I got my 5x and didn't have to get home on E. Before paying I saw more AM. 10 miles for 2 bottles of gatoraid. Done. 15 AM to come home today from Renfrew.

    I got 5x on the game today. Used the Children's Place gift card I got when they were doing an AM promo at Sobeys and ordered my kid some new pants, he's been wearing the same 3 pairs all September, I thought he might need a couple more. Also ordered a Harry Potter costume for him for Halloween through Amazon. Here's hoping we don't have to fight for those bonus miles....

    I'm sooo frustrated with myself! I played the contest yesterday morning before I started my day, got the 20x, quickly went to the computer to get at least one order ready, needed a credit card from my purse, person who was buying the snow tires from the old Fit appeared at the door while I was in the front hall, took the cash to stick into our "treat fund" and the instant pot beeped to let me know the yogurt was done. If you guessed by now that I forgot to get back to my desk till just now, you're right!

    Any of the recent mystery miles possibly attached to having used cash miles? I rarely use those offers for the simple reason that i don't often have any cash miles!

    I've got all my cash mile use accounted for. I'll take the mystery miles any day. I'm beyond bothering to contact airmiles to let them know I got too many. I used to but not anymore.I just keep track and subtract my shortages from this total. Saves the agrivation of contacting AM.

    Ugh...I could kick myself too...not a big miss on AM. But I had received the push to get onyx status with an offer of get 60 AM get a bonus 30. I only did about 36 with a Safeway shop with targeted offers and some surveys. When we pulled up to Shell on Friday before heading to the big city to see the dd...I notice that Shell still had the buy 2 pepsi products get 10 Bonus AM. I TOTALLY could have done that for the remaining miles I needed :sad2: I don't know why I didn't even thing about it. Ugh...I could just kick myself :sad2: :( :mad:Especially, since it is migraine inducing weather and I drink lots of gatorade and advil to help ward off the migraines when the weather fluctuates from warm to cold in the matter of hours . (it's a trick I learned from a friend who sees a tramatic head specialist for her injuries sustained from an accident)

    Totally off-topic here but i don't want to deal with "others" who might feel the need to share comments that won't help me figure this out.

    Ok so it actually IS still related to AM and the hassle i endured over the stupid travel vouchers for our upcoming trip (dropped to double-digits today and I'm stupidly excited!) Our travel agent has done next to nothing for us -- never been to Florida never mind Disney and has zero idea what's involved, I had to tell her that i needed the reservation number for Disney to add it to my account and that it's different from their number. I've received nothing from them since we paid for the trip -- still waiting for her promised help with booking meals (she's convinced you can't do it more than a month out) so i can tell her that I did that myself 6 months ago (she doesn't need to know I'm still working on that, you get the point!)
    My questions:
    • will we ever get the stuff from Disney that I'm used to receiving? Mainly the yellow luggage tags for our baggage? I booked the darned ME myself because she insisted it just happens without any interaction on her part :headache: Will they instead go to the agency because they booked the trip?
    • If there is some kind of weather related problem with the flight will we be able to contact WestJet ourselves and change the booking (last trip there was a freezing rain warning and i just changed it to the night before) OR will i need to use them as a go-between. IF that's the case, what happens if the agency is closed?
    • How do i tell what class of seats she has booked for us? I have a feeling it's the lowest of the low because if I want to pre-select our seats the price ranges from $50 - $75 and that just seems really high. Don't usually care on the way down cause I can easily get on the computer, but coming home we tend to like to make sure we sit together.

    The yellow DME tags usually don't arrive until 2-3 weeks before check in. To be totally honest, I've had a few big issues with DME getting my bags and I will no longer use the service.

    In general, when you book with a third party they are in control of your reservations until you check in but airlines are a little different. Most likely you would be able to make a change due to bad weather but only if the airline issues a weather warning. They issue warnings to allow people to voluntarily change their flights to avoid the back log of plane loads of stranded/delayed passengers.

    There aren't that many choices of seat class. The fees to select seats start around $25 per segment on a short haul for a basic seat. So $50 is not out of line depending on the seat selected.....they charge more for front of the plane, aisle, window, extra leg room etc and all have different fees. The cheapest ones go first.

    ETA: The DME tags will be mailed to your house. They come from an office in the Toronto area.

    I've read that others have their luggage tags go directly to the travel agent and pick them up there. Given that you booked directly and there were boxes for you to enter "your" info I would think they should come directly to you. If the travel agent had done this she would have entered her info and...

    Airmiles flight booking is kind of like booking through a travel agent so I'm hoping my experience will apply to your situation. I have contacted the airlines directly once I have their confirmation code and dealt with them about any issues I have had. Seems to make sense to cut out the middle man for efficiencies sake. A lot of travelers would rather just deal with the person they know (the travel agent) and have them take care of all the details.

    DH used to travel a lot with business using the travel agent to make the arrangements. When glitches happened he just dealt with the airline directly to sort it out.

    Again, Airmiles doesn't book the "Basic" fare they tend to book the regular economy fare. Pre selecting a seat can cost that much these days. The "Basic" fares get no seat selection ever and you have to pay $$ to check a bag and can't change your flight (even for a fee).

    The last few years when I've flown (7 times) so long as everyone was on the same reservation (2-5 people depending) we have always been seated together. I usually do check in within 21-24 hours pre flight, although when I was out west I checked in at 14 hrs pre-flight and we were still seated together.

    I hear you about the safety of the Airmiles thread. I can be a vicious place out there. I tried to use the word Airmiles in each answer to keep it on point.

    Ever listening to the radio with only one ear open and then hear something that has you stop cold and lean closer to hopefully catch it? That was me just now -- found THIS

    Saw something mentioned at the bottom of a Quebec flyer a few weeks ago, guess it's time for everyone else to BOOM!
    Thanks for the heads up. It won't net me a lot of extra miles but every little bit helps. I should be able to add 200 AM to the bank. I have to shop at Sobeys this weekend anyway to fulfill a targeted offer so I can get two for one this way.

    Make sure your mailing address in DME is correct. The only time I used an agent it defaults to theirs so I just changed it back to mine and everything was ok.

    Flights, I can't help... I always book those myself or use airmiles (in which case it is the lowest of the low and I just pay to pick the seats I want, actually I always pay to book all my seats any way just because). Call WestJet and see? Weather etc, I'd deal with the airline myself. Especially if I'm at the airport or something.

    Same re:taking my own bags on the bus! I just want the tags & stuff to add to the scrapbook :P The highlighted section is what's driving me round the bend .. I HATE not being in control -- I want to change things and can't :(

    Thinking i might be stuck with the agent part, it says on my app that it's been booked with a travel agent <sigh>

    I rarely have trouble getting 2 seats together, we like to sit at the very back of the plane for the flight down and most hate it. (we all get to the airport at the same time!!) The mid-week late night flight home in Jan/Feb is rarely full anyway so we should be ok on the way home as well.

    Yeah, don't know why people feel the need to comment if they only want to bash??

    I'll be sure to go in and check once more when it gets to a month and see what's up!

    Thanks for the responses! I'm sooo not liking this whole travel agency element, I know some people prefer to book any trips this way but i just want the control! I might not be so miffed if they had actually DONE anything to make this trip happen. The line in one email that really irked me was "My coworkers and I believe that Disney Travel is an American company under an extremely different system that we do not deal with due to safety concern" uhm, ok .. they've been in business for decades now and I think they're fairly trustworthy at this point. Hubby is extremely busy right now with no slow-down on the horizon and he pouted last night that we can't extend the trip this time because we didn't book it ourselves. Last time around when we got to this point, we paid the change fee on our flights and extended our resort reservation from 2 weeks to 20 nights. Sigh!
