Threshold gifts for Air Canada Altitude

Hi,

I was browsing through the new AC altitude website, and saw the "Threshold Gifts" section.
It looks like several gifts are offered at certain mileage thresholds, and I'm wondering if you get all of the gifts listed once you reach each threshold, or if you get to pick just one each time.
Does anyone know?

So, who actually gets the threshold gifts?

It says the 60K gifts are available to E50s, the 90K gifts to E75s and the 150K gifts to SE100s.

In other words, as an SE100 one doesn't get a threshold gift at 60K in the current year?

Is this the first year Threshold Gifts are available below the 150K mark? I'm fairly new to the FF world, and flew 28K in 2010, 89K in 2011, and 110K in 2012, and have never received a Threshold Gift before.

My "Altitude " dashboard says my next threshold gift is 60K, I am a 75k currently.

The confusing thing is the wording in threshold chart, it says the 60k gift is available to 50K which is correct since you have to hit 50k before you hit 60k

So dashboard tracker says I get it, the threshold chart implies something else

Going with the dashboard thing and will see end of summer when I get there I guess

So, if you go over the E50K threshold by 20% Air Canada would like to give you something to thank you for your patronage. If you go over the E75K by 20% you get something for your patronage. If however you are a SE100K, you need to go over your threshold by 50% to receive a gift.

Just another way Air Canada would like to say thank you to its SE members. I suppose they figure that if someone makes SE, they don't need any encouragement to fly with them. Thus, sending out the SE cards last.

Way to go Air Canada. You know how to look after your frequent fliers.

I have to say that I am liking the look of Altitude- the dashboard thing; the threshold gift at achievable levels as well as the threshold eups.

Se and mine is 150K - maybe a glitch on your dashboard?

Or a glitch in yours

Won't really know until it happens

Or since as SE100K you got a lot more select Privileges on front end they figure you got enough already

Sorry to bump this, but I'd really like to know. Thanks!

Technically, the eupgrades every 20k are threshold gifts.

My dashboard also says 150k which I think is the same as last year for SEs

There was clarification on this when the program was announced (don't have a link...sorry). Current E50s get the 60K gift and up. Current E75s get the 90K gift and up. Current SE100Ks get the 150k gift and up.

Not quite fair to the SE when others only need to be 20% over and SEs need to be 50% over the higher qualificaitons.
