Will you also count the air miles as money when you redeem them?

Nope! You can't count the Air Miles twice!
I factor bonus Air Miles into the cost of purchasing the product but I don't count it as money when I redeem the Air Miles. That makes more sense to me since I earn bonus Air Miles at the time of the purchase of particular items. To me, the bonus Air Miles help determine whether or not something is worth purchasing or, in this case, stocking up and purchasing extra to donate.

I'm not sure I understand. It seems that if, for example, you buy something for $10, pay in cash and earn 95 miles, you feel you spent $0. Is this correct?
If so, what I wonder is this... later, when you buy something else that costs $10, and pay by redeeming those 95 miles, do you think you spent $0 or $10?

@Arjon , when I earn the airmiles, I consider that as savings. For example, if I spend 20 dollars and get 95 airmiles, i say I have only spent 10 dollars.
if I spend airmiles, I do not count it as a savings.
I do the opposite, I don't count AM, PC points, etc until I redeem. I then transfer the equivalent amount of money from our chequing to a savings account
I don't count savings sites like Eclipsa, CO51, Caddle, Go Coupons and websaver until I've rec'd payment... or gift cards (eg Neilsen homescan).
Too much effort. LOL. I accumulate then spend when the wind blows in the correct direction. [emoji846]
As for gift cards or cheques the wife spends those as she wishes. No tracking. [emoji23]
