Air Canada Aeroplan Award Chart Changes

Starting on December 15, 2015 Aeroplan is making some changes. Perhaps the biggest increase is in regards to business class from North America to Western Europe. Previously it was only 45K miles each-way and now it is going up to 55K. There are other increases as well along with a few decreases.

1-Pound Baby Born Early Aboard Cruise Ship Survives

The baby was only five months along and was born at 1.5 pounds with strong enough lungs to survive for about 10 hours before the ship made it to Puerto Rico. Baby Haiden has a long road to recovery and who knows if he’ll ever have a normal life, but it is a miracle that he survived and that gives me hope.

  1. Are you sure that you still get 5X Ultimate reward points when using Chase business ink? The reason I ask is that when its pending it shows as utilities and that is worth 5X but when it post it post as miscellaneous and that is worth 1X.

    • I just verified my purchases from 9/21 earned 5X. (Paypal Digital Gifts as the seller only.) You can go to the Ultimate Rewards site and click “See More Activity” to see how your recent transactions posted.
