Air Canada's Aeroplan Rewards: How To Earn Faster And Redeem Better

Aeroplan, for better or worse, is one of the most important and relevant airline reward programs for Canadians. The reasons for this are plentiful.

  • Air Canada is the largest Canadian airline, owning more than double as many planes as its closest rival, WestJet.
  • Due to Canadian laws, only Canadian airlines can operate flights that both start and end in Canada. All other airlines can only offer flights to or from Canada.
  • The number of partners and earning opportunities available through Aeroplan is only exceeded by Air Miles.

That being said, Aeroplan isn't without its problems. Many people are quick to complain about the program and often abandon it after a frustrating experience.

But getting a better understanding of Aeroplan, combined with a little planning, can make most of these frustrations go away.

Nobody wants to waste their time earning 10 miles here and 20 miles there while taking a lifetime to achieve any sort of reward. And after reading this guide, you won't have to anymore. Keep reading » about Air Canada's Aeroplan Rewards: How To Earn Faster And Redeem Better

Have a business idea that just won’t leave you alone?

You always say you’ll start it someday, but never quite get around to it, right?

Same here.

That’s why last week I began Chris Guillebeau’s Side Hustle: From Idea to Income in 27 Days.

During the first 6 days, I set my goals, brainstormed some ideas, and came up with the projected profit for the most promising one.

I’ll move on from simply brainstorming to actually setting my idea in stone and working on making it a reality. Keep reading » about 27 Days Of Side Hustle: Nailing Your Pitch, Price, And Promise

Cheap ‒ And Fun ‒ Date Night Ideas For A Night To Remember

Cheap And Fun Date Night Ideas For A Night To Remember

Date nights come in all shapes, sizes, and price ranges – from the classic dinner and a movie to a less conventional late-night picnic under the stars.

And while there are tons of ways to save on these occasions, it’s important to first consider the reasons for going on a date night in the first place.

Maybe you need to get away from the everyday chaos and just take a breath, stare at each other adoringly and have a meaningful conversation over a cup of coffee.

Or maybe you’re tired of your boring routine and want to do something exhilarating to give you both a high that will last you until the next date.

Maybe it’s a special occasion, like Valentine's Day, and you really want to seize the opportunity to enjoy each other’s company and do something new.

That meaningful coffee and conversation can be just what you need to rekindle the flame, and a simple walk through the park with your partner and fur baby can give you the opportunity to forget the chores at home and simply enjoy one another’s company.

You don’t need a room at the Ritz and a $500 bottle of bubbly to feel connected to your loved one.

Here are some ideas how you can have some fun with your sweetie without putting a hole in your wallet: Keep reading » about Cheap ‒ And Fun ‒ Date Night Ideas For A Night To Remember

Canadian Stores With Free Shipping

List of Canadian stores with free shipping

Picture yourself whimsically browsing the internet…

Maybe it’s a new pair of jeans you’re after, or a great book to whisk you away on your next incredible adventure...

Browse…Click…Read…Like…Add to Cart…and THEN you see it...

FREE Shipping – BUY NOW.

But, it doesn’t always go that way, does it?

Sometimes you see this instead:

Shipping: $10

So what do you do?

Run for the hills of course – you’re out of there faster than The Flash.

Free shipping makes all the difference in your buying decision. Sure, the cost of shipping is built into the price anyway…but after you’ve decided to buy, you want to know the price isn’t going to skyrocket at the checkout.

Some companies like Amazon.ca are able to offer low prices AND free shipping because of their size and lack of expensive storefronts to maintain. Then it’s win-win.

My favourite trick?

Find the lowest price at one store, and then price match at a different store that has free shipping for increased savings.

Here’s a big list of all the Canadian stores that ship for free so you’ll always know where to get it. Keep reading » about Canadian Stores With Free Shipping
