Is it true you can’t get a physical Scene card? Hate having to pull out my phone for a barcode while I already have my wallet out.

If it is just a bar code, I guess you could just print it. Packing tape as a cheap way to "laminate".

I'm already quietly seething at the 78 year old fumbling with their phone while I and the nine others behind me in line wait for them to unlock their device, find the app, and not know how to adjust the brightness when it won't scan.

Been on Airmiles since the start. Has paid for a family trip to Europe, numerous flights and rental cars. Definitely been worthwhile for me.

I recently lost my Scene card and tried to get a new one. Guest services at the theater can't do anything and don't know anything, scanning though the website was futile, I think I even tried to call somewhere. Gave up and printed the barcode on a piece of paper I keep in my wallet.

Yeah, there has definitely been value in Air Miles. I've gotten two sets of Disneyland tickets (4 people, 5 day park hoppers) out of it, and I've never used their credit card. It was mostly optimizing Blue Friday offers and their old Bonus Boom deals (sadly both of those suck now).

I don't know when they did this cash miles/ dream miles thing, but I've got around 11,000 dream miles that they wouldn't let me spend at Safeway.

My balance has barely changed in five or so years since the end of prescriptions and I changed my credit card. Maybe I'll cash them in for a flight in 2047 when I've accumulated enough.

Yeah I saw the same thing the other day when I checked; I never did switch over to the cash miles so have lots of dream miles.

In the past when I've used them I've ordered something that I usually wouldn't buy myself but would still think I'd like.

They do have some stuff that's worth having.. some of the PC headsets are good. Really thinking of getting the Sonos Move.

Or just order something with the dream miles and sell it on Facebook.

You should be able to get a flight or two already with 11,000.
