In July 2023, AIR MILES debuted a new feature, called AIR MILES Receipts, in Atlantic Canada. By scanning a receipt from a grocery store into the AIR MILES app, collectors could earn bonus AIR MILES on eligible products.
AIR MILES Receipts has now been rolled out nationwide, and it represents a novel way to collect AIR MILES at grocery stores once again.
AIR MILES Receipts Rolls Out Across Canada
AIR MILES has rolled out AIR MILES Receipts across Canada, and collectors can now indirectly earn AIR MILES at a variety of grocery stores nationwide.
AIR MILES enthusiasts can earn bonus AIR MILES by scanning a receipt from an eligible grocery store into the AIR MILES app. If eligible products are listed on the receipt, the member will earn bonus AIR MILES on the purchase accordingly.

Log back into the app to snap a photo of the receipt using the app’s built-in camera function, and submit your receipt. Make sure to submit your receipt within 14 days of purchase, so it won’t be voided.
With apps/programs like these, it’s important to keep the full receipt intact, as they’d like to see all the items you’ve purchased, how much in total you’ve paid, and where you did your shopping. Also, keep the receipt at least until the claim has been processed, so if the system rejects…
