Nope.

I'm not even sure what they could reasonably do other than $4k for every 50k of flying, which ... seems excessive.

Has anyone seen the 300 and 350k rewards for this year be sent? I was able to select it this year on the website which was new but nothing has arrived. Not in a rush but thought I'd see if it was me or everyone else. I know others above spoke of IT issues but was thinking it was getting up there by now time wise.

I only selected the 300, but haven't received it yet.

A handful of people racking up hundreds of thousands of extra points because these promos have pushed them through various thresholds means absolutely nothing.
I think you just say that so that we lowly Elites don't show up to your houses on the night of The Purge.
But I am sure that the number of points that expire each year alone dwarf the investment for high mileage elites.

Just got my $2000 gift card. Time to go request the $4000.

I did write in about this though, so I bet that triggered it.

Looks like they ran a batch, received both my $2000 and $4000 Today.

Wish they would add some higher levels, I have topped out on the Priority Rewards as well now.

Your SQM is amateur

But the SQD is impressive.

Hope i can make up some ground with personal travel soon. All this work travel has been no fun and not optimal for the SQM.
I should not complain though.

I requested the $4000 GC on the 16th and it just came in, so 15 days. Well beyond their quoted 2 days, but I didn't need it sooner.

You people make me feel like AC should send us new luggage tags.

"BARELY SUPER ELITE"

and

"HOLY $&!* THE AMOUNT OF FLYING THIS PERSON DOES IS SUPER ELITE"

You raise a good point - what is the incentive beyond 350K SQM? More eUps? I am not aware of Priority Rewards being part of the Threshold gifts but again, those have limited usability.

For me, after crossing 350K the only incentive is working towards 2MM.

Mr R is still waiting for his to post.

We both crossed 250K back in January, and received the congratulatory email. My banked year posted before the email was even sent, but his never appeared.

He had a February phone discussion with a befuddled AE agent ("But you already HAVE two banked years...?") and then her supervisor, who promised an email and resolution within 2 weeks but would not give out a case number when pressed for one. So last week Mr R sent a clearly drafted email (well ok I drafted it ) and received a case number, so hopefully will get some resolution in the next few weeks.

Interestingly, this seems to be also holding up the threshold eups he's since earned, but since he doesn't need them immediately he'll bring it to their attention after the 250K gift is straightened out. And we both have the 300K gift "select" button on our dashboards, but again, he's holding off selecting until he gets his 250K gift straightened out. (Not sure if I'll wait for him or just go ahead and select mine... )

Looks like the gift cards are out at 300K and 350K SQM, and 150K and 300K of points are in.

Not that I'm likely to hit those mileage thresholds in an average (whatever that is) year, but the rewards don't really seem worth any kind a stretch. At least the former monetary rewards offered a more tangible incentive.

Perhaps this change was brought about as a result of the extra miles that AC has been generously doling out this year.

300,000 Aeroplan miles, lol. That can probably get me a round trip ticket to Toronto from Victoria in business lowest this week. Not that I ever hit the high thresholds, but that is definitely not an incentive to fly extra.
