Air Miles have a bad rep in the points blogging sphere. I maintain that's because people don't know how to leverage the hell out of them - from both a collection and redemption point of view.
One of the super amazing opportunities in this space is the BMO World Elite Master Card. It normally retails for $120 per year, but right now BMO will waive the fees. A 3k minimum spend will net you 3K airmiles. Plus when you redeem, having the card confers a 15% discount on redemptions.
Wondering what you can do with 3K miles and a 15% discount?
1. Get a return flight to disney world, and pay for a car rental (1680 miles one way, 2300 miles return)
2. Almost (and with the 3K spend, that will give you a guaranteed minimum of 150 more miles, so you will have enough) for 2 return tickets to New York (980 miles one way)
3. Pay for a nice getaway weekend in downtown toronto (hotel mileage varies widely).
