Score Extra Air Miles in the Process

Last year, I promised my daughter a new ski jacket. Bless her heart, she wore her last one for two years until it ripped. I was trying to put off the inevitable because kids' ski jackets are so expensive! Last year I had to buy my son a new one and I almost had a heart attack when I saw the price for a kids' ski jacket! So this year, I'm doing it smart. I'm starting early while there is a huge selection and I'm shopping from the comfort of my computer.

While I find online clothes shopping for myself challenging because of my curvy shape, my daughter is a perfect size 10-12. Trying on a new ski jacket isn't as important as finding a style and colour she likes (and a price I like). Buying clothing for kids is expensive, so you deserve a little something extra, right?

My suggestion is to do your online shopping through If you have an AIR MILES Collector Card, you are totally missing out if you don't go through their online shopping mall to make your purchases. Why not score extra reward miles for something you're already buying? And, to earn twice the reward miles, I pay with my American Express AIR MILES Card, so I earn even more rewards!

With taking advantage of reward miles in mind, I spent half an hour online and found four super cute girls ski jackets—all within my budget. Each style has been given the thumbs up by my daughter. But I'm not sure which one to go with. Since you're looking at them with fresh eyes, can you tell me which one you like the best and why?
