November 4 Update: Two days left to book Aeroplan rewards at the old rates, last few days to get on the Amex Aeroplan wait list, 50K PC Optimum points online shopping bonus

 


Today's update contains several reminders! This is your last chance to book Aeroplan rewards at the old mileage levels - come Friday evening you will no longer be able to book flight rewards and non-air rewards. If you have been on the fence about booking award flights there is no harm in doing so to lock them in since Aeroplan's generous refund policy will allow to cancel those flights with full refund of miles (points as of November 8) and a full refund of the taxes and fees so long as you cancel by December 31. Some actions with Aeroplan and Air Canada have been suspended already until the transition to the new program is complete. Learn more here.



These are the ones that are still available until the evening of November 6:

Flight Rewards - Flight rewards will be temporarily unavailable for new reservations, changes and cancellations from the evening of Nov. 6, through the afternoon of Nov. 8. If a member is traveling during that time and needs immediate support for a previously booked flight reward reservation, they can contact the Aeroplan Contact Centre at 1-800-361-5373.

· Non-Air Rewards – Members will be unable to redeem points for merchandise (including gift cards) and other travel rewards starting from the evening of Nov. 6, through the afternoon of Nov. 8.

Between the evening of November 6 and the afternoon of November 8, 2020, the option to convert partner points to Aeroplan points will be unavailable.

 Also a reminder for the Aeroplan program is that these are the last few days to get in on the wait list offer for the new American Express Aeroplan co-brand cards. All you need to do is register your email with them by November 7 to be able to earn up to 10,000 extra Aeroplan points when you apply for one of the new cards by the end of the year. Learn more here.

By joining the Waitlist, the member will get:

  • American Express®* Aeroplan® Card – 5,000 extra Aeroplan points
  • American Express®* Aeroplan® Reserve Card – 10,000 extra Aeroplan points
  • American Express® Aeroplan® Business Reserve Card – 10,000 extra Aeroplan points

 Royal Air Maroc is offering an additional C$100 off their flights between Montreal and Africa when you use promo code WINTER100. The code is good for bookings made by November 7 for departures November 15 to December 14 and returning the Montreal by December 30. They state the code is valid for a limited number of tickets but don't disclose how many. There is also landing page for this offer, it simply came by email from them. The code WINTER100 will work on their website and mobile app. Visit the Royal Air Maroc website here.
