Rocks in the Rockies!! Maligne Lake 2015. Flights on Aeroplan, upgraded suites at Fairmont Jasper thanks to Amex Plat5 offer
I had a great experience this week, attending my first ever PointsU conference, here in Toronto. Apparently there is really a conference for everything!! Including points and miles nerds like myself, that have little or no business travel, but want to fly in as much comfort as ordinary folks can.
One of the best nuggets out of the conference I learnt, was about the amazing Atlantis, Bahamas, free/severely discounted package opportunity, offered through Ceasar's entertainment Total Rewards Package.
If you are a total Rewards member, with Platinum or Diamond status, until Jan 31 2019, you can get a free 4 night stay at Atlantis. You have to get there on your own. But with our tips on miles and points on flying, you can construct a cheapie way to fly, resulting in a great value vacation. Link to Total Reward here.
Of course you are probably thinking, I don't gamble, don't stay at Caesar's. How could this possibly help me!!
Even if you don't intend to gamble or visit Caesars (why wouldn't you want to visit Chez Celine?), it is worth registering for the TR program as your default level will be gold. While this does not allow you to claim the free Atlantis package, it does allow you to purchase a package from TR customer service for Atlantis for 3 nights for $99 each (US).
There are other programs and TR partners that can help you reach platinum or diamond faster. If you are interested in learning more or would like me to do the work in getting your accounts etc. set up, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
