2 Free Upgrades on Air Canada + 15% Off Coupon

I just saw this as I was typing this post out, so I haven’t had a change to sign up yet but The Points Guy says that if you register for Air Canada’s business program, which looks like is free, you can get the following:

  • 2 upgrade certificates
  • 15% off coupon for Air Canada flights
  • 1 free Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge Access
  • 5 pre-paid vouchers for food on board Air Canada flights

Even if you don’t ever plan on flying Air Canada, I would sign up because a lot of flights that go to Europe on Star Alliance seem to be code-shared with Air Canada and route through Canada, so you never know when these upgrade certificates might come in handy!

If you are planning on taking advantage of this awesome promotion, DON’T WAIT until later in the evening! Do it now! These types of deals have a tendency of being pulled early after they get posted on travel blogs.

Update: I’ve signed up and got my confirmation email!

Back From NYC + 1,000 Free Hilton HHonors Points

After being on vacation and off the frequent flyer grid for the last week, I’m back from my trip to New York City!

Although I do love the instant nature of the internet and social media, when I’m on vacation I prefer to take it all in and write my trip reports after I return.  So this week, I’ll start compiling that for you guys.

Although a few days of our trip were interrupted by snow storms, we did try a bunch of the recommendations that you guys, the FFU readers, suggested! Thanks again to everyone that submitted tips!

If you haven’t been keeping up with the travels deals this past week, DealsWeLike posted an offer for 1,000 free Hilton HHonors points for signing up for mobile texts. Additionally after signing up, you can get 4,000 additional points for spending $100 at a Hilton by June 30, 2012. So potentially you can earn 5,000 points plus any points you earn on your room if you have a hotel stay already planned. Additionally, if you got the free Hilton Gold Status a few weeks ago, you would earn an additional Elite bonus. Not bad!

200 More Free Priority Club Points

In addition to the 300 free Priority Club points I had posted earlier in the week, New Girl In The Air posted 200 more free Priority Club points for completing 2 more quizzes. New Girl In The Air was nice enough to post the answers to both quizzes! These 200 points + the 300 earlier in the week should get you 500 free Priority Club points, which is 1/10th of the way to a free 5,000 point Price Breaker award stay.
