HOT DEAL: FREE Flight to Anywhere in North America – Canadian Travel Hacking

aeroplan

Reminder Update: I originally posted about this amazing freebie last week. Here’s a friendly reminder in case you missed it or haven’t had time to sign-up yet. This is one of the best travel offers that I’ve seen. A LOT of people have signed-up so don’t miss out!

Ever wanted to bring your kids to Disneyland, see the light and spectacles of Las Vegas, or visit family somewhere cross country?  Wouldn’t it be great if this could be done either free?  With travel hacking this is entirely possible.

Travel hacking is a method to use gather points from loyalty programs, or other areas, and travel for free or at a highly discounted price.  Normally, since these points are so rewarding, they take years and years to accumulate, and because of this, people think its worthless and time consuming, and so never try, but what if there’s an easier way?  Here’s the way to get a free flight anywhere in North America with Air Canada’s Aeroplan loyalty program.

Right now, American Express is having a friends and family promotion where you are able to get 30,000 Aeroplan points for free, keeping in mind that you only need 25,000 for a free round-trip flight anywhere in North America.  You might think that it’s just another credit card deal, and normally, I would agree with you, but with this deal, in just the last 2 months alone, I’ve been able to earn over 200,000 points, enough for a mini-round-the-world-trip for 2 people!  I took some convincing before I took this offer, and I’m incredibly glad that I did.  Here’s why this deal is awesome:

  • With 30,000 free Aeroplan points, you can get 2 round-trip short hauls flights or a round-trip flight anywhere in North America for free!  Or save up more points and travel to other destinations for free!  See where else you can fly with Flight Reward Chart.
  • The first year is absolutely free, so if you decide the card is not for you, just cancel it and you get to keep the 30,000 free Aeroplan points!
  • Amex is a charge card, not a credit card, which means that it doesn’t hit your credit score as hard a credit card would.  The difference between the 2 is that you must pay off your balance every month, or else you’ll be charged a higher interest rate.  If you always pay off your card, then it doesn’t even matter!  Also, finally a card that you can use at Costco!
  • The very best part of this deal, and the reason I’ve earned over 200,000 points in the last 2 months is that Amex has a referral program.  If you refer someone to sign up for this card under you, you get 10,000 bonus points!  There is no limit on what you can earn! You’ll get your own referral link after you sign-up and activate the card.

If you consider all the points, this is a deal you can’t ignore!  Worst case, you take the 30,000 free points, and cancel the card before the fee is up, and best case, you refer plenty of friends and family and manage to rack up your very own round-the-world-trip!  The original plan was just to sign up, get the 30,000 points, and then refer my wife for another 40,000 points, but a great deal sells itself and it’s been astonishingly easy to get referrals. This offer is valid for Canadians only.

Why All Trips Become “Groupon/TeamBuy Trips”!

Groupon Vouchers Ray Lauren

I like to travel a lot, and Las Vegas is one of my favourite destinations.  As a deal hunter, I like get the best value for my money.  I book flights when there’s a seat sale, I book and re-book hotels if there’s a better promotion, and check out Groupon and TeamBuy every day to see what kind of deals are available.  I’ve coined this as my “Groupon/TeamBuy Trips”, where I try to fill all my meals and activities with Groupon and TeamBuy vouchers, and Las Vegas is probably the city with the most options available.

During my most recent 6-day Vegas trip last week (January 2014) to attend a conference for bloggers and internet marketers (Affiliate Summit), I had the privilege of meeting up with representatives from Groupon, and our conversation eventually lead to whether I used Groupons or not.  This is when I reached into my bag and brought out a stack of Groupons I purchased, printed, and planned on using for the trip!  Here’s the breakdown of what me and a friend used during my last trip and how much we saved!

Restaurant and Buffet Deals:

Total Spent: $210.99 ($411.98 value)
Total Savings: $200.99

Activity and Entertainment Deals:

Total Spent: $307 ($777 value)
Total Savings: $470

 

By planning all my meals and activities ahead, we managed to save $670.99!  The best part of all of this is most of the restaurants and activities are highly rated, and we would’ve eaten at most of these places, and done most of these activities at full price anyways!

So whether you’re trying to find things to do in your local city, or travelling to Las Vegas, Vancouver, Toronto, LA, New York, San Francisco or wherever, try to plan ahead and see what Groupon or TeamBuy has to offer. They’ve got lots of great deals in every city and can save you 50-95% off! Hopefully, you can save as much as I did on your very own “Groupon/ TeamBuy Trip”!
