Aeroplan (although they have devalued the chart + fuel surcharges on some carriers)
and more.

I want to fly Singapore First from LAX to SIN and onwards, which will cost at least 92K MR points. This signup will take care of that!
ok nice! So if you dont transfer the pts to a program, cant you also use the pts to purchase a ticket via the AMEX travel site? Is that even worth it? I have a sapphire preferred and its like 10k pts = $100...plus they offer 20% off.

I hope this deals lasts for awhile, because I need to wait at least another month before i apply for yet another card!
