30% bonus AE miles on AC/CA flights to China for travel April 1 - June 15, 2018

There is a current AC promo offering 30% bonus AE miles on AC/CA flights to China.
Terms and conditions below. I registered last week, and was surprised to see the bonus miles turn up in my account today for
a flight this past week. Who thinks they will be clawed back at some point?



Register by June 15, 2018 for travel between April 1 and June 15, 2018.







To qualify for this promotion:
  • You must be an Aeroplan Member. If you are not an Aeroplan Member, you can visit the Aeroplan website (aeroplan.comExternal site which may not meet accessibility guidelines.) and enroll today. Membership is free.
  • Must register between December 15, 2017, and June 15, 2018. A one-time registration is required and can be completed online at aircanada.com
  • The Bonus Aeroplan Miles for eligible flights flown will be awarded for new bookings only made between December 15, 2017, and June 15, 2018, by 19:59 Eastern Time inclusively, for travel on select eligible flights between April 1, 2018, and June 15, 2018.
  • In order to qualify as a new booking, the booking must have been created for the first time with a new booking reference number during the eligible booking period of the promotion. Any booking made prior to the start of the promotion that is subsequently changed to include travel dates within the qualifying travel period will not be considered a new booking that is eligible for the promotion.
  • Only valid on select eligible scheduled non-stop or direct flights operated by Air Canada or Air China for travel between April 1, 2018, and June 15, 2018.
  • 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.

Found it, thanks.

I'm not a professional marketer, and perhaps this is all obvious to those who are ... but it seems beyond bizarre to me, that you have a promotion that (a) you have to register for, and (b) you hide the registration (on the 2nd page). I thought the purpose of a promotion was to encourage people to take advantage of it, no? So it's not actually clear to me what the benefits of mandatory registration are in the first place - but surely, if you do require registration for a promotion then you'd also want to ... what's the word I'm searching for ... "promote" it, and not hide it?

Depends how important the message is and whether the marketer wants is front and centre or just there because. Then again, there is also a 10% promo to ICN on AC.com, in the same type of promo format, but on the first page.

Registration is a different mechanism. AC and Aeroplan do not do it well. There have been many promos in the past where people have registered, received the confirmation window and never received their bonuses. The answers from Aeroplan were: you weren't registered. (Thus why some of us tell everyone to screen shot). Other answers are: oh, you have to call Air Canada. Seriously? Like there is someone there that even remotely handles this?

I prefer the way AA and SPG handles promos. When you sign up, you get a confirmation email. I've asked previously why AC/Aeroplan can't do this, but never saw a reply.

My last trips to KIX and SGN have been on CA via PEK. I didn't mind it too much in both Y and J but my mom hated both of it so much. The airport, the food, the service, the poor English...my poor mother, I'd fly CA again for an additional 30% miles but she's the type of person to pay an extra 30% fare to avoid CA!
