Apr 19 Update: Aeroplan Earn Your Wings update, Bonus Miles+ Elite Qualiftying on China Southern & Scandic Hotels Systemwide bonus

Final day of updates for this week and this is what I have for you:

News, Tips & Tricks

In case you were one of the people who had issues signing up for the Air Canada Earn Your Wings promotion (I know two of you commented that you did) here is the response from Air Canada as their are no known technical issues:
Thank you for your email about our Earn Your Wings promotion. I've taken a look at the comments on your blog to better understand the nature of the issues experienced by two of your readers. Currently, the promotion is running without any known issues but the following may help to explain certain problems:
-On the afternoon of April 15, a fix was implemented addressing an issue where customers who have a hyphen or an apostrophe in their name could not register (they would of received an error saying their Aeroplan information is invalid).
-In order to register, the name that is provided needs to be an exact match to what would appear on someone's Aeroplan card. If it's not an exact match, an 'invalid information' message will appear.
-As the promotion needs to authenticate every user against the Aeroplan database, a good internet connection is required. We know of at least one occurence where due to what was likely an intermittent connection, someone's registration failed because the authentication check with the Aeroplan database timed-out. The easiest option is to try again.

In order to assist customers who may be experiencing issues, we've also set-up the following email address in order to provide customer support: Should you have any other questions, I would be happy to answer them.

 Some decent bonus offers in the section below, there is a new Aeroplan Coast Hotels stay bonus (book online at Coast Hotels to make the most of it) and you can earn bonus SkyPearl Kilometers + Bonus Elite Qualifying segments on China Southern's Vancouver-Guangzhou route (and every other route they fly).
