Should you take advantage of the WOW Air deal to KEF/CPH/LGW?

Currently, WOW Air is having a fantastic sale from Washington IAD/Boston BOS to Reykjavik KEF/Copenhagen CPH/London LGW. These fares go from $99 one-way, to about $150. They are a low cost carrier and charge quite a few fees, but if you can pack light, it’s a great deal. Note: book on the WOW Air USA site, not the UK site, which adds additional taxes.

Good deal: TD Aeroplan Infinite, 25k AP and First Year Free

UPDATE: You can currently get this promotion on GreatCanadianRebates with an additional $50 rebate!

TD is again allowing applications for the TD Aeroplan Infinite Visa for the first year free. They are giving 15k Aeroplan points for the first purchase, and an additional 10k for spending $1,000 in the first 90 days. You can apply here (this is not a referral). This promotion is ending October 31st, so act fast!
