Cineplex's SCENE program changing earn and burn rates on April 17 - significantly devalues current balances and the SCENE Visa CardPlaying catch up on this news! Some time ago Cineplex announced changes coming to their very popular SCENE program. These changes will take place on April 17, the day after Starbucks’ changes, so that will be the week of change!The forthcoming changes to the SCENE program will be seen on both points earning and points redeeming sides. I think for most people who don’t hold a SCENE Visa Card or have a big points balance, the changes aren’t that significant moving forward as the majority of members do earn and redeem for movies. Ultimately when you look at the revised earn and burn schedule for movies you are still getting 1 free movie for  every 10 movies you purchase (of the same type that is, ie Standard or 3D or Enhanced or VIP)But in reality what this does mean, is all your current balances, if not used prior to April 17 are being devalued. Your 1,000 points that you thought would get you a movie will not after that date. You’ll have to spend at 250 more points or more if you are going for the fancier movie settings…

AIR MILES Mega Miles Event: Earn up to 1,000 Bonus Reward Miles for shopping at multiple sponsorsThe annual AIR MILES Mega Miles event kicked off today and presents a really nice bonus mile earning opportunity. If you meet the requirement of using Mega Miles coupons at 3 or 5 or more sponsors you’ll be awarded with 300 to 1,000 Reward Miles over and above the base miles and coupon bonus miles awarded. This promotion runs until April 25. This year the bonus miles offers are lower than before with 2015 through 2018 all maxing out at 1,250 miles compared to this year’s 1,000 miles. We also noticed a lot of the individual offer coupons are lower this year.As was introduced in 2018,  AIR MILES now gives you two levels of bonuses, you can make it to only 3 sponsors and get a lower bonus of 300 miles (it was 650 last year) or still go for 5 or more to get 1,000 bonus miles.The offers from the participating sponsors do have varying validity dates so be sure you check those to make sure you can earn them. For example, the Sobeys Liquor offer for Alberta is only valid April 4 to 10…

March 21 Update: Tim Hortons launches Tims Rewards & six new airline & hotel bonus offersTim Horton’s has officially launched their loyalty program Tims Rewards. You can tell its modelled to compete with one of their biggest competitors, McD’s. The program is simple, make 7 purchases, get 1 item free. The free item is limited to a coffee, tea or baked good. Ideally if you want to maximize the program you’ll want to just buy lower priced items however you won’t be able to do split purchases like the old Starbucks MyRewards program as there is a 30 minute time span in which you have to wait before scanning your Tims card for another purchase. Also purchases under 50 cents won’t count towards a reward. Also of note is that unused rewards expire after 120 days and you can only bank up to 5 rewards on your account. You can find more about the Tim Rewards program here.
