May 19 Update: Canada and the U.S. agree to keep border closed until June 21, 15x AIR MILES for Apple Store online purchases & more!

Canada and the United States will be extending the closure of the border to non-essential travel for another 30 days. This will definitely affect Air Canada's plans to start some U.S. flights later this week as we reported previously. I would guess we will see a schedule update from Air Canada later today or by tomorrow at the latest. (Source Global News)

If you are looking to buy some Apple products now may be the time to go ahead with that purchase as you can earn 15x AIR MILES Reward Miles via airmilesshops.ca. This offer runs until May 20 and remember if you are in a city where stores have reopened you can buy online then pick up your items if you don't want to wait for them to be shipped to you. I have done this in the past where I ordered online via the Aeroplan eStore and two hours later was at the Apple store picking up the order.  Find out more here.
