Sunday Summary

Uber is offering a $20 Credit on your first ride if you sign up before January 20th. You can use my code UBERCKMS or my link here and I get $20 too. I’ve used it many times and I feel it’s really convenient although a bit pricy. Feel free to leave your own link below as well.

Aeroplan Distinction Members now receive benefits at Fairmont Hotels:

  • Room upgrade at check-in (when available)

You can book with that the link Aeroplan provides you when you log in and get a code. For example, here is my dBlack link direct to Fairmont. I believe that you’ll need to book with Best Available Rate (BAR) for these offers. An alternative to these rates might be AMEX FHR and other luxury hotel rates, which I wrote about here.

You can now register for the following hotel promotions if you have paid stays coming up:

We now have Gogo in Canada!

Air Canada has had wifi on just a very few of planes which generally do the LAX-YYZ/YUL routes. I was lucky enough to get it once on a YVR-EWR flight. I think wifi on domestic flights would be extremely useful.

There are increased offers for several credit cards.

The Chase Southwest Credit Cards for Americans are back at 50,000 points, and I’m sure you can find a link somewhere.

Of course since everyone manages to talk about the Barclay ArrivalCard it is a 40,000 points. Click here

And no, I didn’t forget to put in my affiliate links for both those cards. 😉

With Canadian Cards,

CIBC has a 20,000 points offer for the Aerogold Infinite until the 30th of March, with annual fee first year waived. The minimum spend is $500.CIBC

The TD Aeroplan Visa Infinite now has a 15,000 points signup offer and first year fee waived if you go in-branch. Applying online will not get the annual fee waived.

Of course, the AMEX Canada cards have great offers as always:

  1. Jeff,

    Do you know if I can the bonus from TD if I do a product change? I have a TD Gold select, and don’t want to get a hit on my credit report.
