The newest set of Air France KLM’s Promo Awards
were released last night (you would have seen our post on our global site if you follow it) and this time we see three Canadian cities in the promotion! With promo awards the
ranges from 25 to 50%
off the regular amount of miles required to redeem for these flights. As
you can see just by the
discount this can be a very good offer if you get 50% off for Business
Class! However for us here in Canada we don’t get any 50% offers once
again but we
do get 25% off which can definitely be utilized by some! While 25%
isn’t as good as 50% of course, it still is
something to look at if you were planning travel to Europe for February.
The offers are:
Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver to Europe: 25% off Business Class
December Promo Awards – Save 20% to 50% on the Award Miles usually required
for an award ticket. Destinations vary by each promotional period. Full Details Book by Dec 31 for travel Feb 1 – Mar 31, 18 (Canadian departures are Feb 1 – 28 only)
Here are all the details on the Canadian offers available for booking this month:
have all the miles? Hopefully you took advantage of the Flying Blue 100%
bonus on buying miles earlier this fall so that you could use them for this
month’s offer. They do however have a 50% bonus going on right now until Dec 31! You can buy enough miles for the round trip business class flight for around C$2700.00 then you would have to add in the taxes and fees for the flights which can run upwards of $600. So ideally you’d only want to buy miles if the value of the ticket is more than $3,300 which many times it can be in the high $4,000 or $5,000 range unless they have one of their business class sales going on where the price of the ticket could be under $3,000.
transferring Starpoints earned via the Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card from American Express
to Flying Blue. The card has a 25,000 Starpoint bonus right now which
translates to 30,000 Flying Blue miles and a nice way to top off your account for one of these awards. Starwood is also selling Starpoints at a 35% discount so that could provide you with an additional option in terms being able to have enough points to redeem for this offer although you can only buy up to 30,000 Starpoints.
