Unfortunately, it isn’t that good, although for some it may be better to rack up lifemiles for very cheap redemptions vs. getting aeropesos, especially with electronics as often they are cheaper in the US than buying through the Aeroplan eStore in Canada. Lifemiles is running a 2x the points on purchases of 50 dollars or more (if google translate is correct):
So unfortunately skype isn’t offering 26 points/$ spent anymore, so unless you need dating advice…?
For US subscribers, you can get 20 miles/$ for a purchase of groceries at Safeway. So if you have some miles from the 2×1 promo, then that means you can add to your balance for some *mistake* redemptions…
Happy (American) Thanksgiving?
