Mar 30 Update: British Airways accounts hacked, TD First Class Visa Increased Sign Bonus + 1st Year Free, Aeroplan & AIR MILES Redemption Issues

Happy Monday everyone! Quite a bit going on for the second last day of March!

News, Tips & Tricks
Late last week British Airways Executive Club suffered an attack by some hackers. There are reports of some BAEC member's accounts having 0 Avios when they had thousands of Avios in their account prior to the hack. Be sure to check your accounts ASAP to see if you can login or if your account was one of those affected. Many accounts are also appearing as frozen for the time being as a safety concern. I checked my account and was fortunate to see that neither my Avios gone or my account frozen. I did however change my password right away and we recommend that you do the same if you can access your account. Keep an eye on this and make sure you contact BAEC if you have one of the accounts which lost Avios.

On Friday we were interviewed by CBC for an Aeroplan & AIR MILES award flight story they are working on. They were contacted by some Aeroplan members who are frustrated with the lack of availability and the fuel surcharges being charge on Aeroplan tickets. We've covered this topic in the past in our Redemption Stories series and now have extended a small discussion on our Instagram feed. Why not join in if you are on Instagram  or comment below with your thoughts.
