Transfer of reward miles, Q & A
What is new?
AIR MILES is introducing a new feature that will enable Collectors to transfer some or all of their AIR MILES reward miles to another Collector. This new feature benefits those who wish to gift some of their reward miles or prevent their accounts from being closed due to inactivity. With the new ability to transfer reward miles, AIR MILES Collectors now have four ways to keep their accounts active - earning, redeeming, donating and now transferring reward miles.
Why would a Collector want to transfer reward miles
Collectors have been asking for this feature. We listened carefully to feedback from our Collectors - they told us they wanted more options with their reward miles, and we delivered. The new transfer feature benefits those who wish to gift some of their AIR MILES reward miles or prevent their accounts from being closed due to lack of activity for 24 consecutive months.
How does this policy differ from before?
Previously, the AIR MILES Reward Program allowed the transfer and consolidation of accounts in the case of AIR MILES for Small Business, as well as Collectors experiencing certain life changes or circumstances, such as the death of a family member. Today, AIR MILES is introducing a new feature that will enable Collectors to transfer some or all of their AIR MILES reward miles to another Collector.

The fee to transfer AIR MILES reward miles from one account to another is 15 cents per mile.
