Full Answer

Air Miles program participants must be at least 16 years of age and be legal residents of Canada. To enroll in the program, consumers visit AirMiles.ca and sign up for the Air Miles Collector Card. When visiting affiliated sponsors, members present their Collector Cards to start earning miles with each purchase. As of 2015, hundreds of businesses across Canada participate in the program. Participants can redeem miles in-store and online at participating locations.

Once members register their cards at AirMiles.ca, they can view their mileage histories and update their personal information. The site provides a list of the participating sponsors for consumers to locate those nearest them. Shopping at AirMilesShops.ca often provides Air Miles customers the opportunity to earn anywhere from two to 10 times the normal rate during promotional periods. Members also have the option of buying miles for themselves.

A free app available for the iPhone and iPad allows users to access their accounts on their mobile devices and access a list of nearby participating merchants.
