The Dec promo was Shop The Block and you could use the same partner with different offers. This one is not the same, it has different rules. Do yourself a favor and read the rules. You need 5 different partners for this promo.

Terms specifically state 5 different partners, not 5 different offers. This is different from shop the block

Skip The Dishes St. Patrick's Day voucher

Skip The Dishes has a voucher code to save $3 on a $15 order.
Code is
IFOUNDGOLD

I believe this voucher starts working on St. Patrick's Day.

There was a really convoluted riddle and process to get the voucher code. Sometimes puzzles are fun to solve; this one was confusing and not straightforward enough to warrant a discussion thread on RFD... if you want to track down the origin of this.

So your saying that although there are two coupons for safeway $60 and $10 safeway pharmacy , they only count as one towards the 5 you need.
Also 2 shell....and if you get right down to it Thrifty and safeway are the same partner.

Go to the Mega Miles site and check for yourself, it's region/province dependent.
  • http://www.airmilesmegamiles.ca
  • Select your region/Province.
  • Click on "All Offers"
  • Click the "Save" star at the upper right of your offers. Watch as the logos are dynamically added to the list at the top of the page.
  • Choose as many as you'd like, but if you choose BOTH of the 2 Shell offers, you will only see ONE Shell logo added to the top, as the 2nd one won't stack up for this offer. This indicates that you'll only fulfill ONE partner/sponsor offer, and you need FIVE to get the full 1250 BAMs.

What matters is what Air Miles lists as unique partners on the Mega Miles page.

Here's an example of the steps above:
  1. Go to http://www.airmilesmegamiles.ca
  2. I chose BC, then I clicked "Save" for the following:
  3. Safeway: Spend $60, get 5X Base Miles - saw the logo added to top of page.
  4. Thrifty Foods: Spend $60 or more*, get 5x the Miles. - saw the logo added to top of page.
  5. Thrifty Foods Pharmacy: 20 AIR MILES when you spend $10..." - saw the logo added to top of page.
  6. Shell: Get 10 AIR MILES on 25L fill of Bronze/Silver - saw the logo added to top of page.
  7. Shell: Get 20 AIR MILES on 25L fill of Shell V-Power - DID NOT see ANOTHER Shell logo added to top of page
Here's a screenshot of the dynamically updated list of partner logos at the top of the page.



Note, only ONE Shell logo, even though I selected BOTH Shell offers.
Also, you can see that Safeway, Thrifty Foods and Thrifty Foods Pharmacy are all separate partner offers.
If you don't get FIVE partners for 1250 BAMs, you could also get 650 BAMs for fulfilling 3 partners.

Hope that clears things up on how to check if you'll meet the conditions to qualify for the promotion. Enjoy.

EDIT: I don't want to turn this into an Air Miles MegaMiles promo thread, so I'll just add onto this post.
Even if you have used the Shell gas 25L coupon once for the MegaMiles promo, you can continue to use it up to 6x for the 10 BAMs on 25L fillups. In my case, I also had a concurrent offer to "Fill 25L four times for 100 BAMs", so I've been going back to Shell for my fills, and used the MM coupon all 4 times to get 4x10 BAMs, plus now the 100 BAMs have posted for that separate non-MegaMiles offer. That's 140 BAMs already.

Yes Thanks, even though it has it's own coupon and shows up as one of your saved. That's a little sneaky of Miles.
I guess maybe, maybe not that you would get it...So best not take a chance ..
with doing the 2 gas the rest are practically free. (gas you always buy) but you don't always buy something at the Bay.

If anyone is thinking of applying for the new Scotiabank Passport Visa with no FX fees. Wait until April 3rd when the application link will go live with GCR.

I haven't bought gas for my own car in Canada for years. Luckily, I'll have a rental car within the promo period that will need gas.

Upon enrolment, 25,000 bonus RBC Rewards points will appear on your first monthly statement. Additional cardholder(s), as well as existing RBC Visa Infinite Avion or Visa Platinum Avion, Cathay Pacific‡ Visa Platinum, British Airways‡ Visa Infinite, RBC Rewards Visa Preferred, RBC Avion Visa Infinite Privilege and RBC Avion Visa Infinite Privilege for Private Banking cardholders, applying for or transferring to an RBC Visa Infinite Avion card as of the offer eligibility period, are not eligible for this offer. This offer may not be combined or used in conjunction with any other offer.
so, if i read it correctly, having one of these existing RBC credit cards will not be eligible for this offer. is this normal for RBC?

Also, I can't find anything in T&C state about previous card holder. Last I have this card is back in 2014, wonder if anyone have this card more than once and got sign-up bonus more than once.

Thanks.
You should have no problem getting the 25K and free first year. I've had the card x3 and each time I've gotten the bonus points and free first year.
Thanks for the info. Will apply for it then.
applied earlier and got approval. Will report back if I do get the bonus and FYF.

But FYI, when I click "view detail" at last page, it still show 15K and no FYF. So, will see.
got my 1st statement and rec'd my 25K and FYF.

also to note, wife also applied with no instant approval, but got approved after a couple of days. She still has the Cash Back MC that was converted from the Target MC. Hasn't make 1st purchase yet, but I did my usual $0.01 payment to ensure my online banking is setup correctly. On her 1st statement, she got FYF as well. But to my surprise, she got 25K as well, thought it was after 1st purchase only So, put this card in the draw now
