Aeroplan Back to School Promotion!

Aeroplan is currently offering up to bonus miles opportunities with Back to School promotions.
The good part about Air Canada buying Aeroplan out is that there is less uncertainty about our miles come June 2020. I still wish that Aeroplan was going to branch off from Air Canada and compete directly with them. But if the two can create more value by joining forces, then it might work out! 

I don’t know about you, but when I was young, I dreaded going back to school.

Thoughts on Air Miles, New Partners for Shopping Portal

I think that it is safe to say that most of the dust has settled with all the negative publicity with Air Miles. 

Negativity with Air Miles
Air Miles was introducing a hard expiry policy of 5 years after miles were deposited, that was going to be effective on December 31, 2016. What that means is that once your miles are deposited into your account, they will expiry within 5 years regardless of expiry. There was going to be a first-in-first-out rule, whereby the miles you redeem will be the ones that were deposited first.

Winter may feel cold for some of us in Canada. Some people enjoy it, some people cannot wait till the spring/summer time. Either way, Valentine’s Day is deep into winter, which can range from being a dreaded time or one of the most fun day of the year.
