  1. Hmm, bait and switch? After I submitted it says: “Thank you for sharing your Aeroplan travel story with us! You will be credited 250 miles within 6 to 8 weeks, if your story is selected. ”

    That “… if your story is selected” part seems interesting.

  2. Yep, I just wrote the same on Lucky’s site. It is bait and switch. I expect Gary and Lucky to do their homework before posting this garbage :-/

  3. I wish I’d read the previous posts. Same thing happened to me. Waste of time – and I still need to find a way to keep the miles from expiring.

  4. I still highly suspect that we’ll get the 250 miles and that the wording is just wrong on the Aeroplan site. How many stories are they going to select and only give away 250 miles each for? I would expect 5k miles or something higher for a story being selected for them to promote. Also the wording before you start the promo doesn’t say “if your story is selected”.

    Didn’t meant to say that Gary was pulling a bait and switch, but meant Aeroplan is with the conflicted wording.

  5. Aeroplan and by extension, Air Canada has the worst customer service of any North American airline. When I go to Canada (3-4x a year) I usually am lucky enough to fly WestJet, which is miles ahead of Air Canada.

  6. Just FYI, my 250 points posted today and expiration date moved out a year. Woohoo! Glad the wording on the last screen of their site was wrong.

    Thanks, Gary!
