AIR MILES expands partnership – you can now earn and redeem miles for cruise vacations

AIR MILES announced today that they have expanded their relationship with Collectors will now be able to earn and redeem miles for cruise vacations booked via the special website that is powered by Redtag.

“Providing our Collectors across the country with value, choice and
the flexibility to get and use Miles their way remains the foundation
that the AIR MILES Reward Program was built on. The launch of cruises
with our partners at illustrates this commitment, providing an
unforgettable dream reward just a click away,” said Blair Cameron,
President, AIR MILES Reward Program. “With an amazing selection of
cruises to destinations all over the world and the freedom to get or use
Miles when booking, it has never been more rewarding to find and book
your dream vacation.”

“Whether it is a weeklong cruise in the Caribbean, a two-week sailing throughout Europe or even an Alaskan adventure, has so many unique cruise options for all types of Collectors,” said Dianne Jackson,
Vice President, “Our goal has always been to connect
travellers to their dream getaways while providing the best deals.
Through our partnership with AIR MILES and the addition of cruise
bookings, I believe we are achieving that goal.”

If you have ever booked or redeemed for a vacation package in the past using this site you’ll be familiar with cruises then as it works the exact same way. When you book a cruise vacation you can redeem 909 miles for a $100 credit towards to the booking. This means you don’t even have to have the full amount of miles to be able to redeem. Have 2,000 miles and book a $2,000 cruise? You can redeem 1,818 mile and pay the remaining $1,800. You will also earn 1 AIR MILE Reward Mile for every $20 spent on cruises – so that same booking should net you 90 AIR MILES.

In addition to the above I would recommend reading our feature The Ultimate Guide to Credit Card & Loyalty Programs for the All Inclusive Vacationer as most of the tips can be utilized towards cruises as well!
