it's not that complicated. The miles for the reward, plus the miles that would be accrued on a revenue ticket equals the price of the revenue ticket minus the fees on the reward.

Nowadays I seldom get more than 2 cts/mile. Also, should be on a trip that you would take anyway even if you need to purchase the revenue ticket.

If latitude is less than P, then the latitude is what I use. No marginal value for upgrade credits.

If within the upgrade window, then flex if there is R. If only P/Z and latitude is cheaper than P/Z then Latitude.

This doesn't seem to say anything about bookings having to be made on aircanada.com, does it? I don't see anything at first glance at least.

That's... actually a very generous promo.

cpm' = cpm - (accrued miles / redeemed miles) * cpm',

=> cpm' = cpm / (1 + accrued miles / redeemed miles),

where cpm is simply cent per mile, cpm' is adjusted for unearned mileage.

See, I like to make things over complicated

I guess its all in the interpretation of of the term "3x bonus miles". Does that mean I am getting a "bonus" of 3x miles or 3X the bonus I get in PE which 25%. The bonus miles I get on this route at 25% is 2985, so 3X that + regular miles =20,900.

Not sure how to interpret this offer.

More likely it's what the person above wrote, either 3x100% miles or BONUS 3x100% (100 + 3x100)

Not sure which of those two options, though.

The promo specifies this:

*Bonus Aeroplan Miles will be applied exclusively towards miles earned based on the distance flown as per the fare mileage accrual rule. The class of service bonus miles and miles earned in conjunction with the Altitude Bonus Select Privileges are excluded.*

So then, my interpretation (so far) is literally 3 x the miles you would normally earn, but on the base.

Example (using rough figures here)

YYZ-HND -6400 miles one way, 12,800 return (plus class of ticket factor to diminish or increase that, but true mileage is 12,800).

Therefore if booked under the promo should earn using PE in this example:

12,800 miles x 3=38,400

Add 25% of base for PE 3,200

Total 41,600

Of this total only the 12,800 and 3,200 are AQ miles, the rest are standard AE miles.

Add whatever else you get based on your Altitude status-

Anyone disagree with this methodology?

The T&C on AC website isn't very clear on the percentage. But when AC had similar promotions, they used the words "double the miles" for base mile + 100% bonus + COS bonus. Therefore I believe x3 bonus miles means base miles + 300% bonus + COS bonus.

I can't remember the last time a promo like this happened.

There's no point in anal-yzing this... it's a good promo.
