Yesterday we brought you details of the February version of Air France KLM Flying Blue’s Promo Rewards. As we mentioned at the time of posting that availability for the new routes wasn’t showing yet. Well now this offer is live and here are some examples of availability and routes you can get this deal on, especially so for the great offer of 50% off economy and business class seats out of Montreal!
February Promo Rewards – Save 20%
to 50% on the Award Miles usually required for an award ticket.
Destinations vary by each promotional period. Full Details Book by Feb 28 for travel Apr 1 – May 31, 19
Edmonton – 25% off business class
Montreal – 50% off business and economy class
Toronto – 25% off economy class
Vancouver – 25% off economy class
And an example of some of the business class availability from Montreal to Paris:
and Paris back to Montreal
Total miles and fees come to 53,000 miles and $741.73
Economy class availability on the same route
|Montreal – Paris Economy class|
|Paris – Montreal Economy Class|
and the total is only 21,500 miles + $292.76
That’s not too bad of deal either!
There are also other options at 53,000 miles for business class (and should be available in Economy for 21,500 miles round trip):
The above however shows the weirdness in Flying Blue’s non-award chart pricing. Most European cities are pricing at 53,000 miles out of Montreal but when you look at Edmonton it is 91,500 miles to Amsterdam however to Milan it is only 87,000 miles!
No matter what it looks like there is lots of availability for April and May out the Canadian cities to Europe and the Montreal flights are an amazing deal for either Business Class or Economy Class!
If you don’t have enough Flying Blue miles for a Promo Reward your best bet
is to convert Marriott Rewards points to
Flying Blue on a 3:1 basis. Remember you’ll earn 5,000 bonus miles when
you convert 60,000 points at a time (a total of 25,000 miles per 60,000
points) That means 129,000 points will get you to 53,000 miles which is
enough to cover the round trip Montreal to Europe flight in Business
Class! Or just convert 60,000 to get the 25,000 miles which covers the
round trip Montreal flights in Economy Class.
If you want to build up your Marriott Rewards Points balance you
can always look at getting the Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card from American Express. Currently
comes with a 50,000 point sign up bonus when you spend $1,500 on the card and then you could
also grab the
Starwood Preferred Guest Business Credit Card from American Express as it also has 50,000 point sign up bonus. You
would then ultimately be able to have 100,000 points not
including what points are earned on spending. Of course timing of
getting the card(s) now, spending and getting the points will likely not
happen for this month but it sets you up for future offers. Need to
grab two tickets for an itinerary? You could choose to
get one SPG card for yourself and one for your partner or spouse and you’ll have a lot more points!
