If you’re an AIR MILES collector, the latest news from BMO should have you pretty excited.

It’s no secret that BMO is at the top of the AIR MILES game here in Canada, and the recent change they rolled out for 5 of their AIR MILES credit cards, only reinforces that.

Most BMO AIR MILES credit cards have some way to earn more than just the base rewards.

1.5x the miles at Shell or 1.25x the miles at IGA, but now some of BMO’s no fee AIR MILES credit cards are upping the ante and offering cardholders 2x the miles at participating AIR MILES partner locations.

Which cards are included in this new offer?

Anyone who collects AIR MILES (or wants to start), should know which no fee credit cards can get you up to 1 mile for every $10 spent

So here they are:

All 5 of these cards normally allow cardholders to earn 1 mile for every $20 spent ‒ but now you can earn 2 miles for every $20 spent at all participating AIR MILES partners. Sweet!

With this heightened earning, if you can do 25% of your shopping at AIR MILES Partners, you’ll be getting roughly a 1% return on your spending if you redeem your AIR MILES for flights.

What companies are AIR MILES partners?

The nice thing about this new feature is that your multiplied earn rate is no longer limited to just gas or just groceries. Instead, with some creative planning, you have the potential of earning 2 miles for every $20 spent in a number of different spending categories:

  • Gas – Shell
  • Groceries – Sobeys, Foodland, Urban Fresh, Safeway, and Metro
  • Drugstore – Rexall
  • Home improvement stores – Rona and Ace
  • Car rental – Budget and Alamo
  • Other – Global Pet Foods
