The basics

If you’re an avid AIR MILES collector and shop regularly at Sobeys, you could benefit from the BMO Sobeys AIR MILES Mastercard.

  • No annual fee. Avoid paying a fee every year to keep your account active.
  • Collect more miles. Snag a return of 1 mile on every $20 you spend on your card.
  • Earn rewards faster. Earn more Miles when you shop at Sobeys, Foodland or other AIR MILES® Partners* like Shell or IGA.
  • Welcome bonus. Get 800 bonus miles when you sign up, which is enough to cover a one-way short-haul flight in Canada.
  • Product coverage. Get additional warranty and insurance coverage on the products you buy with your card.

The perks

  • Zero liability. Protect yourself against unauthorized charges on your account with zero liability coverage.

  • High interest. The interest on this card is around 10% higher than what’s on offer with a low-interest card.
