Earn up to 150% on Paid Fares
It’s pretty much as simple as shown below. If you are flying a paid fare, you can earn 100% to 150% bonus miles.

I find it more exciting to get 40% off a business class award, though:
The only bummers here are that it applies only to redemptions on Air Canada metal and you have to fly by September 30th. But if you were going to, for example, fly YUL-LON, it would cost you 55,000 miles each way in business class. On a round trip, you’d pay 110,000 miles and get 44,000 rebated later.
But about that “Air Canada” requirement: Air Canada charges massive YQ (a term that just means a surcharge for the sake of a surcharge that is part of the fare but separated from the fare so it doesn’t show as part of the fare – but you have to pay it nonetheless). On this round trip, you’d be on the hook for a bit over $1,000 CAD in YQ.
EXCEPTION: If you are Super Elite 100K (top tier Altitude status), you won’t have to pay the YQ. For you, this deal is screaming.
Remember that you’ll need all the miles for the full price award in your account to redeem.
All terms and conditions for both deals are here.
You MUST REGISTER to be eligible.
