If you didn't know already, I am ALL about the deals and bargains. There is a deal that I noticed on RedFlagDeals.com that I won't have time to take advantage of but still a great deal none the less.
Air Canada is offering unlimited flights from Jan 7 to March 6, 2007 for a low set price! The only stipulation is that you have to purchase the pass before Jan 3, 2007 and you can only fly in the days indicated in the chosen plan.
For example, the 2 day pass, you can only fly on Tuesday and Saturday. With the 3 day pass, you can fly on Tuesday, Saturday or Sunday. As you can see from the chart below, the 3 day pass is substantially more expensive due to the extra choice that you get. Regardless, what makes this deal espcially interesting is that the prices INCLUDE all security fees!
East 2 day: $279 * 2 months * gst = $591.48
East 3 day: $409 * 2 months * gst = $867.08
West 2 day: $229 * 2 months * gst = $485.48
West 3 day: $339 * 2 months * gst = $718.68
Cross Canada 2 day: $329 * 2 months * gst = $697.48
Cross Canada 3 day: $489 * 2 months * gst = $1036.68
North America 2 day: $379 * 2 months * gst = $803.48
North America 3 day: $569 * 2 months * gst = $1206.28
This is how it works:
With the 2 day pass, you get to fly within the zone that you choose as many times as you like providing that it's on a Tuesday or Saturday. With a 2 day pass, you get 2k aeroplan points / month.
The 3 day pass is pretty much the exact same thing as the 2 day pass except you can fly on Sundays along with Tuesdays and Saturdays. You also get 3k aeroplan points / month. In addition to this, they're offering a purchase incentive for the 3 day pass:
As an added incentive, customers who purchase Welcome Aboard Pass – 3 Day Option will receive a complimentary 2 credit Welcome Aboard Promo Pass, valid for travel any day of the week, between April 10th and May 10th, 2007 for the same zone purchased.
So there you have it, a great deal from Air Canada. For about $1200 (everything included), you can fly anywhere that Air Canada flies in North America as many times as you desire from Jan 7 to March 6, 2007. Not bad if you ask me.
Update: As this deal has expired, find out how you can get 1.33% CASH BACK from WestJet.
