Your sum­mer just got sun­nier thanks to Shell and AIR MILES

Toronto Sun - - NEWS - ELISA BIRN­BAUM Con­tent Works

Sum­mer comes around only once a year and once it does, you’re nip­ping at its heels, wel­come mat un­furled, flip-flops at the ready and sun-kissed ac­tiv­i­ties or­ga­nized down to the very last de­tail.

Yep, sum­mer­time and the liv­ing is easy, as they say. That is, un­til you see your bills. Whether head­ing north­ward, fam­ily in tow, for some well-de­served respite at the cot­tage, tak­ing a week­long drive along the Cape Bre­ton Trail, or sim­ply plan­ning a day trip, you quickly come to re­al­ize that sum­mer livin’ can also be quite pricey.

But there’s some good news on that warm hori­zon. AIR MILES and Shell have teamed up to make your fam­ily’s sum­mer fun even more de­light­ful, and way less stress­ful, by of­fer­ing an eas­ier way to save your money when­ever you get be­hind the wheel.

Next time you visit your lo­cal Shell gas sta­tion, re­mem­ber to take ad­van­tage of your abil­ity to get and use Miles. If you’re an AIR MILES Col­lec­tor and are opted in to AIR MILES Cash, you can use your Cash Miles to save your money with every trip.1 Get $10 off when you use 95 AIR MILES Cash Miles at Shell. (You can save up to $60 to­wards your pur­chase in a sin­gle trans­ac­tion, for up to five trans­ac­tions a day.) At Shell, get­ting and us­ing Miles is fast, sim­ple and con­ve­nient, and you can do it whether you’re at the pump or in the store.

You can get more Miles when you make pur­chases – from snacks for the road to lot­tery tick­ets and car washes – at any one of more than 1,300 Shell re­tail sites across Canada.

If that’s not enough, Col­lec­tors with a BMO®* AIR MILES® Master­card®† with no an­nual fee can get 2x the Miles on every $20 spent at par­tic­i­pat­ing AIR MILES Part­ners, 2 in­clud­ing Shell.

It comes down to bring­ing every Cana­dian fam­ily closer to the mo­ments that mat­ter by mak­ing it eas­ier for them to plan the ex­pe­ri­ences they want to en­joy – help­ing them get the most out of the sea­son. Sum­mer is about hav­ing fun and spend­ing qual­ity time with your loved ones, af­ter all.

It’s no won­der the AIR MILES Re­ward Pro­gram is Canada’s most rec­og­nized loy­alty pro­gram, with nearly 11 mil­lion ac­tive Col­lec­tor Ac­counts, rep­re­sent­ing ap­prox­i­mately two-thirds of all Cana­dian house­holds. Col­lec­tors can get Miles at hun­dreds of lead­ing brand-name Part­ners across the coun­try at their thou­sands of re­tail and ser­vice lo­ca­tions and on­line. And now, with Shell, your drive out of Dodge with the fam just got a lot eas­ier – and more fun.

Who knew fu­el­ing up could be this re­ward­ing?

Use the Cash Miles in your AIR MILES Cash Ac­count in­store in in­cre­ments of 95 Cash Miles for every $10 to­wards your pur­chases at par­tic­i­pat­ing AIR MILES Part­ner lo­ca­tions to a max­i­mum of $750 (7,125 Cash Miles) per day (gift cards and near-cash prod­ucts are ex­cluded and other ex­clu­sions may also ap­ply); max­i­mum of $60 per trans­ac­tion (570 Cash Miles), up to 5 el­i­gi­ble trans­ac­tions to­tal­ing $300 per day at Shell. You must have ac­cu­mu­lated suf­fi­cient Cash Miles in your Col­lec­tor Ac­count in or­der to use Miles to­wards your pur­chases at par­tic­i­pat­ing Re­ward Part­ner lo­ca­tions. All Re­wards of­fered are sub­ject to the Terms and Con­di­tions of the AIR MILES Re­ward Pro­gram, are sub­ject to change and may be with­drawn with­out no­tice.

2. Ac­cel­er­a­tor Re­ward Miles will be earned at a rate of 2 Re­ward Miles for $20 spent at par­tic­i­pat­ing AIR MILES Part­ners. A list of par­tic­i­pat­ing AIR MILES Part­ners can be found at bmo.com/moremiles. Ac­cel­er­a­tor Re­ward Miles will be cal­cu­lated on the to­tal el­i­gi­ble cu­mu­la­tive spend at all par­tic­i­pat­ing AIR MILES Part­ners made dur­ing your most re­cent ac­count state­ment. Ac­cel­er­a­tor Re­ward Miles earned are is­sued in whole num­bers only. For ex­am­ple, if your to­tal el­i­gi­ble pur­chases made at par­tic­i­pat­ing AIR MILES Part­ners to­taled $248, then 24 Re­ward Miles would be is­sued at the Ac­cel­er­a­tor rate ($248 di­vided by $20 equals 12.4, times 2 equals 24.8). Of­fer is cu­mu­la­tive over the state­ment pe­riod. Award of AIR MILES Re­ward Miles is made for pur­chases charged to your ac­count (less re­funds and ex­clud­ing cash ad­vances, cash-like trans­ac­tions, in­ter­est charges, fees, credit or debit ad­just­ments) and is sub­ject to the AIR MILES Re­ward Pro­gram Terms and Con­di­tions and the BMO Master­card Card­holder Agree­ment. The num­ber of Miles will be rounded down to the near­est whole num­ber. Frac­tions of Miles will not be awarded.
