November 27 Update: Aeroplan contest winners, 40,000 bonus Be Well points at Rexall and tell us your Mobile Device Insurance stories


Earlier this month we ran an awesome contest to celebrate the launch of the new Aeroplan
program and wanted to thank everyone who entered the contest as well as to Aeroplan for the prizes! A
big congratulations go out to each of the 25,000 points winners and this
time the contest was swept by Ontario!  

Congrats goes out to Gregory C. of Ottawa, Ontario, Alexis K. of Arnprior, Ontario and Ethan Z. of Toronto, Ontario!



Rexall is offering one of their bigger bonuses that we’ve seen in awhile. You can earn 40,000 Be Well points when you spend $40 or more in store. Those points are worth $16 which is better than the $10 gift coupon route.

You may have seen earlier today that I posted a comparison of the new Aeroplan
. There were two things that really stood out to me. First the
Amex cards are definitely weaker in the insurance department compared to the TD
and CIBC cards but that tends to be offset by the Amex cards offering better points earning and benefits. So if you are more about the
insurance these charts can help you compare that. Second, I’ve never
really taken a long hard look at Mobile Device Insurance before and
after reading the terms and conditions for them it almost seems like
more of a hassle with depreciation, deductible and the fact there are
exclusions like cosmetic damage that doesn’t affect functionality. Does this mean if you crack your screen where it
doesn’t affect the touch screen or most of your view that they won’t
cover the repair? Seems to me something like Apple Care is a better
option, yes you have to pay for it but you’d have to pay anyways with the insurance thanks to those deductibles and depreciation. And my experience with Apple Care is that there are no questions asked – they repair or replace as needed.

With that being said I’d love to hear from any of our readers who have utilized mobile device insurance and
what your experiences have been! Did you have a successful claim or
were you denied? Was the coverage worth it with the deductible etc? Let
us know in the comments below
