“We’re constantly innovating and adapting the Program to provide the best possible experience to our Collectors,” said Blair Cameron, President of the AIR MILES Reward Program. “We feel confident that the enhancements we’ve made to our digital capabilities and our dedicated fraud detection processes will provide increased security for Collectors and Collector Accounts, ensuring they are able to get and use their Cash Miles safely.”
On June 26, 2017, the company communicated this change to all Cash Collectors through an administrative email, updates on www.airmiles.ca and proactive media relations. The information is also posted in stores at AIR MILES Cash Partner locations.
