Quite a few changes this month, especially with a slew of TD Aeroplan promotions coming off the list, but lots of new additions.
The industry seems to be in a bit of a flux these days in Canada. My recommendation is that if you see something you like, just go for it. We don’t know how much longer deals will hang around. There may be new deals later on, but it will be something different.
