Need help completing minimum spend? It's your last chance to get the CIBC AC Conversion Card, which you can load with Visa and MasterCard to earn lots of points! Applying for the card is free. For more details, check out my post.
Masterpass is an online digital wallet that can be used instead of entering your credit card details multiple times on different websites. They have been running several promotions encouraging users to try out this payment method. The last major promotion was a $25 discount on Costco.ca items. Today, there’s an excellent deal to get a huge rebate on an Air Canada Flight.
Air Canada Masterpass Deal
Air Canada is offering a $60 eGift Card for the first 12,500 transactions for flights made using Masterpass. I suggest completing the registration on their website before purchasing your ticket on Air Canada. To sign up, simply verify your card information, as well as your billing address and other personal details. Even though it’s “masterpass,” you can actually enter any credit card, including Visa and American Express.
For this airline bookng, I used the American Express Business Platinum Card, as that provides the best flight and baggage delay protection. After you’ve signed up, simply proceed with booking any Air Canada flight. The payment process should flash an image about the promotion.
Simply proceed with masterpass as your payment method, and then you should qualify for the egift card. The purchase will post as an Air Canada as if you entered your credit card directly. There is no minimum purchase necessary to get the bonus. The egift card will only be valid online on Air Canada flights and has no expiration.
Booking Flights with this Promotion
A flight like Vancouver to Calgary is roughly $200 one way in economy, so this is a pretty big rebate with short-haul domestic flights. I didn’t have my flights to PointsU yet, so this promotion really helped! This offer is only valid on the initial paid flight booking. Discounted fares like employee tickets or awards, as well as ancillary purchases like seat selection, are not valid for this promotion.
You will get your gift card via email three weeks after the initial ticket purchase. As well, you must have a valid ticket when you get the eGift card, which means that you can’t cancel your ticket before then. Notably, you can get one eGift Card per completed transaction, although it doesn’t specify a limit per passenger, cardholder, or Masterpass.
There also isn’t anything in the language as far as I can see that bars you from two gift cards with two separate one-way bookings. You also seem to be able to use all fare classes, including refundable fares.
If you want to complete this promotion multiple times, I would recommend using different credit cards and Masterpass accounts. As long as you make your purchase before the it’s clear the promo has ended, you should be eligible for the gift card. This promotion ends November 19th or when 12,500 transactions (offers) complete. Most likely, this will be the latter, so hurry!
