AIR MILES reached out to us this morning and provided the following:”As a result of the developments surrounding COVID-19, we have decided to postpone the MEGA MILES promotion currently planned to launch on March 19, 2020. As we continue to learn more about COVID-19 situation and respond accordingly, new dates have not yet been selected.

Why not a card that has both?” we come to find Scotia Rewards is changing many of their Pay for Credit rates (aka cash back rate), Gift Card rates and Apple/Best Buy Catalog redemption rates.
