Air China releases an immense number of award seats, including First Class in abundance. While every Star Alliance frequent flyer program, including Aeroplan, should be able to book those Air China award seats, Aeroplan has purposefully blocked all Air China seats for quite a while. As of today, it looks like Aeroplan can now book Air China awards (again)! This is great, especially considering Air China flies to Vancouver, Toronto, and Montreal, and there are no fuel surcharges when using Aeroplan. Note that the flight between Montreal and Havana cannot be booked.
Left without comment 🙂 (by the way, they have a whole series on the link below)

Just playing around tonight, and found that the Aria in Las Vegas has a rate of $29/night for Aug 30 – Sep 2. This includes a $125 food/beverage credit. Now, if you book on Orbitz using the promo code MASTERCARD150 through their hotel+flight option, leaving from Chicago Aug 30 – Sep 2, your final price will come to $38 for the three nights. You enter the promo code at the end, under the heading “how would you like to pay?” You don’t need to fly the flights (though it’s that much better if from Chicago!). Can include flight from whatever city you want, but you’ll pay for it.
Since forever and ever (well, my recent memory, which is admittedly short), American Express Canada has always pulled Transunion when making a credit decision. This kind of sucked, because most other valuable Canadian creditors also pull Transunion, and this made the case of having excessive credit checks all too common.
