It’s great when you can earn miles for items you already want to buy, like groceries, or in these times, paying for pharma expenses. But when you get 2X points for doing so, that’s all the more reason to do so. If you are planning to shop this weekend, you can consider spending yours only in June-September 2021 if you intend to use this offer.
