Jun 4 Update: Double Aeroplan Miles at Choice Hotels, AF KLM Business Class sale (again), Alfursan buy miles bonus worth it?

A quiet day here in the FFB and RC world. Just some bonuses to pass along!

News, Tips & Tricks

Although it is only bonus offers today you really should make note of a few of them. The first of course is from Aeroplan and their latest double miles offer for stays at Choice Hotels, second is the Cathay Pacific offer for flights from Canada that had its own post last night and finally the Saudia Alfursan Buy Miles bonus. It definitely is not as lucrative as the US Airways or Aviacna TACA bonus but with proper planning there are a couple of redemptions that could be worth buying the miles for as they can be bought for as little as 2 cents each. Of course depending on availability the 50,000 miles for economy class Canada to Europe on Saudia's SkyTeam partners (Air France, KLM, Delta). You can buy the miles for ~$1020+tax and if you can find availability you could potentially save a few hundred dollars versus buying that flight outright with the airline if there is no seat sale. Now, chances are you will have to call in for the booking as I tried out Saudia's online booking engine and all I can say is that isn't very good. Chances are however if you can find award availability on AF KLM, Delta or other SkyTeam airline via their respective sites then Saudia should be able to get it as well. Would I go in on this offer? No, but there maybe one of you out there to whom this may be worthwhile!
