News, Tips & Tricks
Fun Fact Friday: Did you know that our global website FrequentFlyerBonuses.com covers the most loyalty promotions out of all the major frequent flyer/travel points websites and blogs? In fact in a recent survey we conducted approximately only 30% of the offers FFB passes along to you are covered by other websites and blogs. And of those only thirty odd percent, FFB is the first to post these offers over 60% of the time! (and is first and only one for the other ~70%). If you are a global traveller and haven't visited FFB you should do so now and bookmark it! It is a valuable tool to have in your quest for more miles, more points and more rewards.
Reader question answered!
"I am just wondering if I lose my points that I get from the credit cards if I cancel the card? I have a card with aeroplan points but I want to cancel it before the renewal fee comes into affect at the year mark"With Aeroplan you won't lose the miles as long as they have posted to your Aeroplan account. Those miles typically post when your monthly statement is complete. If you cancel in between you may lose the miles just for that month depending on who issues the card but most will award you the miles for what you spent right up to cancellation. To make sure you don't lose any I would use the card right up to the statement date cut off then stop spending on the card and cancel it. For other cards with proprietary programs not connected to programs like Aeroplan, Air Miles etc. you may lose your miles/points when you cancel if you haven't used them. Depending on the card you may forfeit the points right when you cancel (so book travel before you cancel) while some others may give you up to 6 months after you cancel to use your points.
