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!


300 Free La Quinta Points

Sorry about the lack of posts this weekend, I try to have 1 post a day, but this weekend it was 80s degree in Chicago and I have been focusing on building out the FFU Beginners Guide since I figure that is something that people can actually use.

300 Free La Quinta Points

In the meantime, Gary from View From The Wing posted that you can get 300 free La Quinta points.

Now I am a member of a ton of random hotel programs but even I am not a member of La Quinta, so I was thinking about passing on this offer

However Gary makes a great point, that these free La Quinta points would be great for the U.S Airways Grand Slam Challenge (if they bring it back in 2012) if you need to transfer hotel points to get a hit

Last year, to get a hit, I had to transfer SPG points which pained me but I did ultimately get 15,000 US Airway miles for free, so it wasn’t a huge deal.

However hopefully this year, I will be able to use these La Quinta points.
