March 2 Update: WestJet Flight Promo update, Aeroplan adds Budget as new partner, new Shoppers Optimum bonus

News, Tips & Tricks

A quick update to the WestJet Rewards
promotion we brought to you earlier this week. We posed the question to
WestJet to see what happens if you mix and match fare classes on the

Our question:

“If you book one econo fare, then a plus fare, then a econo fare etc. how will the bonus be awarded? ….  Say you fly your first 2 flights in Plus you’ll get 20wsd per flight,
but your third flight is Econo, do you get 10wsd since its your first
econo fare or do you get 20wsd since its your third flight? Then if you
go back to Plus for the 4th flight will it be 40wsd or 50wsd?”

And WestJet’s response:

“You can mix and match the fare class and it will still count as an
eligible flight for the flight count each time. So per your example. If
they fly first 2 flights in Plus, they will receive 20 WSD for each
one, third flight as Econo will earn 20 WSD, 4th flight as Plus will
earn 50 WSD. J It’s a win, win, win!”

This is great news to know that you don’t ‘drop’ down to a lower bonus when you book into a new fare class!

Shoppers Drug Mart is once again sending out big
bonuses for shopping tomorrow. We got an 18,500 bonus point offer for

adjusting its car rental partners. As of today Budget returns as partner
of Aeroplan but we also lose Hertz. Here are the details of the Budget

  • Earn – Starting today, members can earn 250 Aeroplan Miles for
    each eligible rental with Budget at participating locations on- and

  • Redeem – Members can now use their miles to get Budget rental
    certificates worth $50 or $100 on Soon, members will also
    be able to redeem Aeroplan Miles for Budget car rentals for their

Aeroplan is sending out emails to select members
offering bonus miles for purchases at ESSO. We received it and you
should check your inbox as well to see if you were targeted!

More Rewards has lost Canadian Direct Insurance as a
partner. Too bad as this program needs all the partners it can get to
become the coalition program they want to be!
