Oct 1 Update: Discounted Aeroplan Transfer Option, 50K Bonus for RBC BA Visa Infinite, US Airways share miles bonus & more

News, Tips & Tricks
Aeroplan is running a limited time promotion for their transfer miles options. Until October 31st you can transfer miles to friends or family for 1.5 cents per miles instead of the regular 2 cents per mile. Not a huge deal but if this is something you have been planning to do this would be the time to do so. Nowhere near as good as the US Airways share miles deal that came out today. With a cost of only 1 cent per miles plus a $30 processing fee and 7.5% tax you can essentially 'buy' US Airways miles for as little as 1.135 cents (transfer 50,000 miles get a 50,000 mile bonus). So if you want to transfer to a family member or friend they will get the bonus but then you can always have them transfer that bonus back to you to get another bonus. Each account is limited to earning 50,000 bonus miles during the promotion period.

The big news of today however was the return of the 50,000 Avios sign up bonus for the RBC British Airways Visa Infinite Card. Read all about it here. This was not the only card to see an increased bonus released today, the Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card from American Express also saw an increase, not as big as the RBC offer however. Read about the SPG offer here.

And finally the best bonus of the day if you can't take advantage of the US Airways share miles deal is the Radisson 1 for 1 offer which was also covered on the Rewards Canada blog earlier today.
