Rexall to Launch AIR MILES Reward Program in Western Canada

Beginning October 31, AIR MILES Collectors Can Earn Reward Miles in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba

TORONTO, Oct. 14, 2014 /CNW/ - Rexall and the AIR MILES Reward Program are expanding their 15-year regional partnership to offer AIR MILES Collectors the opportunity to earn AIR MILES reward miles in Rexall's Western Canadian retail locations, effective October 31. Collectors will be able to earn reward miles on purchases of prescription drugs (where provincial law permits), over-the-counter drugs and a variety of retail items, including beauty and household products. Collectors can then redeem reward miles for the rewards they want, including AIR MILES Cash, the Program's instant redemption feature.

Extending the breadth of Canada's leading coalition loyalty program to an additional 167 Rexall locations in Western Canada creates even more opportunities for AIR MILES Collectors to earn reward miles.   

"The growth of long-term Sponsor relationships is both important to the success of the AIR MILES Reward Program and the value which it provides our Collectors," says Blair Cameron, Senior Vice President of Client Services, AIR MILES Reward Program. "We strive to deliver a strong coalition of Sponsors across the country; Sponsor partners like Rexall, who share the same customer-centric values that AIR MILES does, in order to offer that something extra to our customers for their continued loyalty."

Rexall is celebrating their 110th Anniversary in Canada this year, and is one of the most trusted names in pharmacy in the country. With over 450 locations operating under its retail banners, Rexall and Rexall Pharma Plus, the company is Canada's complete healthy daily living destination, focused on helping improve the health of Canadians.

"Our long standing partnership with AIR MILES has delivered exceptional value to our customers in Ontario. So we are very excited to be able to expand this partnership and provide our patients and customers in Western Canada with all of the same benefits and advantages that come with being an AIR MILES Collector," said Mary Kelly, Executive Vice President and Chief Merchandising Officer at Rexall.
