Holiday shopping tips from airmilesshops.ca

TORONTO, Nov. 25, 2013 /CNW/ - Holiday shopping can be time consuming, expensive and downright stressful, especially for those busy moms who often take on the bulk of the job. airmilesshops.ca and blogger Lena Almeida, a busy mom of two, have partnered to provide Canadian shoppers with tips to make this year's holiday shopping easy, fun and full of reward miles!

  1. Mimic the man in red by making a list and checking it twice: Be sure to take into account stocking stuffers, hostess gifts and even wrapping paper. A good tip is to buy a few generic gifts (candles are always great!) just in case you receive a few unexpected gifts from acquaintances and neighbours and want to reciprocate the gesture.
  2. Avoid the last-minute crowds by shopping online: Keep stress and overspending at bay by shopping from the comforts of home- shop where you want, when you want. airmilesshops.ca is a one stop shopping destination with an amazing breadth of retailers from Apple to Old Navy! To help you get started, you can earn Bonus AIR MILES reward miles during Black Friday (November 29) and Cyber Monday (December 2). Also another tip is to focus on shipping and how you can get gifts delivered right to your door and some stores will even wrap them for you!
  3. Work, family and neighbourhood holiday parties can take up a lot of time so make the most of a free hour by "power shopping" online: As all moms know, alone time is rare and precious which is why power shopping is so important! Take advantage of nap time, tv time or your lunch break to buy all of your gifts online throughairmilesshops.ca.
  4. If you just can't avoid the last minute gift rush: Check items off your online list first and then head to the mall for any remaining items. Beat the crowds by arriving right when the mall opens or right before it closes.  Also make sure to study the mall's layout to ensure your shopping is as efficient as possible.
  5. Be sure to take advantage of special Bonus offers: Using an online shopping mall, such as airmilesshops.ca, to make purchases allows you to take advantage of stores on both sides of the border, as well as special holiday bonus offers that increase earning opportunities. Many of the stores on airmilesshops.ca have offers to earn 2x, 3x even 10x the reward miles on your purchases. For the most rewarding shopping experience, use both your AIR MILES Collector card and your affiliated credit card to complete a purchase and earn even more miles.
