You likely are not aware, but Air Miles has reduced the value of some points.
In other words, collectors will need to redeem more miles when booking vacation or cruise packages as they’ve been lowered by about 20 percent.

Air Miles says it made the adjustment because that’s a ”subsidized” rewards category requiring a higher level of customer support.
Air Miles says it has not lowered the value of miles in any other category but has given no indication what else it may do to make up for the shortfall after cancelling its expiry policy.
All unused miles older than five year were set to expire January 1 until Air Miles changed its mind.
The parent company Alliance Data Systems of Texas says the about face cost it 242-million and that ”going forward, we will need to rework the Air Miles reward program to replace the lost economies.”
