No official AC birthday perk, however when I arrived in YYC yesterday, Chris the concierge was standing at the gate waiting for me. I got off my flight and he presented to me a birthday card and some of my known favorite treats from AC. This was unexpected and awesome, thank you, Chris.

So I assume they will keep pushing the validity dates up month by month, else this will be a pretty poor gift for folks born in Jan/Feb.
Kishiwada and fbrdky like this.

The promo code is valid for a month based on your birthday and time is added to the validity period accordingly.
