Everything you need to know about Dreamstakes

Is Dreamstakes and actual contest?

Yes! Ampli’s flagship contest is called Dreamstakes, and for good reason. Each and every month, we launch a different Dreamstakes where you can win cash and other prizes by participating in spend challenges. Dreamstakes gives you a unique opportunity to earn even more cash, in addition to regular cash back offers on our platform.

What kind of prizes do you give out?

Each month, we give out grand and secondary prizes. Grand prizes are generally cash – in the past we’ve given out from $1,000 up to $50,000! Secondary prizes can also be cash, gift cards or products from some of our fabulous partner brands, like Hudson’s Bay Company, Petro Canada, and more. 

The number of prizes given out each month ranges, but grand prizes are usually awarded from one to three people, whereas secondary prizes are awarded to even more lucky winners.

How do I enter Dreamstakes? 

Entering Dreamstakes is as easy, and as fun, as doing your everyday shopping! First, you need to make sure you’ve connected a Canadian debit or credit card to Ampli. Then, participate in as many “in-app challenges” or “Dreamstakes offers” as you like.

When you participate in in-app challenges, not only will you earn cash back by shopping at one of our partner brands, but you’ll also earn entries into that month’s Dreamstakes. Each challenge comes with a unique number of entries, and challenges vary month to month. The best rule of thumb? The more challenges you participate in leads to more entries, and more entries leads to, well, you guessed it: grand and secondary prizes! Also, some challenges can also be surveys, so you don’t have to spend to earn! In-app challenges can be found on the WIN screen of your Ampli app. 

Similarly, a Dreamstakes offer is a chance to earn 1 entry by spending at a participating brand. One cool part is that these are ongoing partner offers, so if you regularly spend at brands like Petro-Canada, Indigo.ca, or Well.ca, you’re guaranteed to earn entries every month! These can be found on the EARN screen of your Ampli app.

What are other perks of Dreamstakes?

Whenever you participate in Dreamstakes, you also have the chance to unlock exclusive offers for places that you most likely spend on a regular basis. Currently, we have offers on coffee, the dollar store, and the grocery store. The best part? These aren’t brand specific. You choose your favourite store or shop, and earn cash back! It’s that simple.

Can I win twice?

Absolutely! Every month is an entirely new Dreamstakes. So that means new prizes and more chances for you to win.

Enter Dreamstakes today!
