Contestants may submit their Receipts through one of the following means:

  • Take a picture of the Receipt (a “Snapshot”) and Text it to AMA, along with Contestant’s AMA Membership Number (the “AMA Number”) to 587-602-1333 if Contestant is located in Southern Alberta, which is any part of Alberta south of the city of Red Deer or 587-415-2888 if Contestant is in Northern Alberta, which is the city of Red Deer and anywhere in Alberta north of Red Deer.

  • Login into Contestant’s Account and submit a Snapshot; or
  • Submit the Receipt in person at any AMA centre by bringing the receipt and the AMA Membership Card and presenting it to an AMA staff member.

Contest Questions

I get multiple receipts when I make a purchase. Which one do I take a picture of? Send us a full image of the itemized receipt from your purchase, not the credit card/debit receipt. Our system needs to see the items purchased to confirm eligibility. Can I send receipts for movie ticket purchases or hotel and car rental bookings through AMA? Yes, any AMARewards partner product/service that's available for purchase online or in centre at AMA counts as a valid receipt into the contest. There are many AMARewards partners who are "online only". Can I still make a purchase in store to earn a receipt? No, for a partner purchase to be a valid contest entry, you must follow the member-exclusive SAVE or EARN steps listed for each deal at AMARewards. Some online-only deals require you to buy through the CAA eStore. While others take place through links to partner websites. How do I see how many ballots I have in the contest? Sign in to your dashboard to see how many ballots you have into the Grand Prize and Early Bird Prize draws. You can also see how many Bonus Ballots and any other Instant Prizes that you've earned. What's the difference between contest ballots and and bonus ballots? A contest ballot is gained by making a AMARewards partner purchase and submitting the receipt – this entry counts towards the Early Bird Prize draws (as long as it was earned prior to the draw cutoff date), the Grand Prize draws and towards the tier level prizes. A bonus ballot is earned as a tier level Instant Prize and only counts towards the Early Bird Prize draws (as long as it was earned prior to the draw cutoff date) and the Grand Prize draws. I'm not an AMA member. Can I still enter the contest? AMA's Earn or Save Giveaway is exclusive for AMA members. Not a member? Join us today and you can start participating in the contest while earning AMA reward dollars and saving money all across the country! Are there limits to how many times I can earn ballots from one AMARewards partner? Within any 30-day period, you can enter up to five (5) receipts from any one AMARewards partner. Can I enter the contest if my employer is an AMARewards partner? If you are employed by an AMARewards partner, you cannot submit receipts into the contest for purchases made from your employer. However, you can participate by shopping at any of our other great AMARewards partners through the methods above.
