100k bonus eligibility - residency requirement?

Can anyone confirm what the residency status is for the oneworld 100k bonus. I understand there is a contest to win 1mm miles that is open to Canadian residents only.

I am planning on trying to get the award bonus on Canadian and want to find out if I need to use a Canadian address to sign up for CP+ or can I just use a US mailing address. I thought I read somewhere that the residency requirement applies only to the contest and not the bonus.

Any insight? Thanks.

100k bonus - live anywhere you want
1MM contest - canadians only

HOWEVER, i did read somewhere in a forum that you needed to be a program member before the promotion began.

can anyone verify that?

Lonman,

I hope that what you refer to is the membership cutoff restriction that Finnair placed on their bonus (you had to be a member of their program by a certain date.) Celestar340 talked about that a bit when planning his 7 awards.

If I can't do Canadian because of this membership time restriction, I think I'll have to settle on Iberia and then Qantas.

Any good sign-up bonuses for Canadian lately or good route bonuses?

maybe that is it, but did anyone ever check with any other programs to see if the same scenario applied? i'm doing this in aa, cp & ba, but i had accounts with them before this madness began.

any comments?

Canadian does not normally give sign-up bonuses, and of late, most route bonuses have been directed towards paid business and first tickets. (Same with AC, for the most part.)

Come to think of it - I might actually DROP Finnair's programme because I am not really sure if I even qualified for the 100K promo with them. My welcome letter to Finnair Plus says " Points accruing as of 4th October 1999" .
