There's been talk of an ultra bonus you can talk yourself into;

100k MR for 10K$ spend. As if 3K$ wasn't bad enough last year, this year it's about 5K$ biz or 10K$ Plat spend.
Sorry, no suggestions for MS'ing. But, I've gotta ask. There is a CANADIAN Amex Plat offer for 100k MR for 10K$ spending?

After reading his post I had to call Amex and try to negotiate that deal - no luck at all

I know.....I used up my last bit of Dream miles on a mini food processor just to get rid of most of them, then switched all my collection to Cash Rewards, so I can cash them in for groceries. I'm a very, very low level collector, and gift cards were all I ever collected towards.

Airmiles account

Can BMO airmiles pooled? I don't have an airmiles account. Can I link my spouse's airmile account when applying for BMO master card?

Wife and I have done it with our BMO MCs (no-fee) and Amex Airmiles Plat (FYF) CCs. All cards post points into one single Airmiles account. I mentioned it recently, here at the Amex thread.

So I'd like to bless someone here with these: I've got 3 Maple Leaf Lounge passes that expire February 28, 2015 that I'd like to give away. Free. No strings. I just can't use them and would like to see someone on here enjoy them. PM me if you want them, and I'll mail them up to you.

***Gone!

Great offer, can you clarify for us whether those are from TD (Reward flights on AC flights ONLY), or regular MLL passes from Air Canada?

I wouldn't need them, but hopefully they go to those in need

I got them with the TD Aeroplan Infinite cards. I don't think you need to be using them for Reward flights, but you do need to be flying AC. Hope that helps.

I have the same passes (2), it says
"this pass is valid in conjunction with a confirmed same-day departing Aeroplan ClassicFlight or Market Fare flight reward ticket ..... operated by Air Canada, AC Express, or AC Rouge"

= Reward flights only
= AC flights only
= Useless for many, ha

You're right! I looked and sure enough, they are only if you're traveling on reward flights. Never knew. That really does limit their usefulness. But if anyone is still interested, let me know...

Such a generous offer. The FT-world needs more kind souls like you!

You probably should post in this thread instead:
http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/air-c...-mll-pass.html

I have so many leftover Aero-affiliated MLL passes that I should have given them away earlier last year. For a while, the lounge dragon were allowing you to use them EVEN if not on an award flight...but, I gave some to my brother and friends recently during Nov and Dec, and they said they are now laying down the law....HAS to be on an Aero-reward booking and AC metal. Oh well....ker-flush!!!
