Would I be able to put the entire amount of a all inclusive trip for a family of 4 into a giftcard and pay for it via gift card?

If it is possible I would save a few hundred dollars. But I would be uneasy putting a few thousand dollars on a giftcard at a grocery store.

10% discount is really good.

If paying the trip with some premium CC's will cover lost luggage, flight delay, trip interruptions, or medicals. But if only paying part of the trip with the CC, the coverage may be lost. That'd be my worry with using these AC GCs.

Plus 4% for those with cc's that offer that cash back on grocery purchases.

AC really wants us to not earn aeropesos anymore.

I believe the maximum amount you can put onto the card at Sobeys is $500.

You can use up to two gift cards per transaction at Air Canada, provided that the total cost of the ticket purchase is covered fully by the two gift cards. Otherwise you can use one gift card and pay the rest by a credit card.

Pay for it partially with GC, partially with Masterpass for the $60 eGC?

Not worth it to lose the insurance you'd get from credit card booking. One delay and you're hooped.

For short and cheap domestic flights within Canada, I would use it. Like say Toronto to Montreal , Toronto to Calgary , Vancouver to Winnipeg etc.

But for international flights or even flights to US, I would rather put in on my Credit Card for insurance, cancellations, changes, refunds etc.

if you use your CC to pay partial of the ticket and the rest pay by gift card, you may also get the insurance you'd get from credit card booking

With Air Canada that's worth more than a measly 10%...

If I charge full ticket price on CC and then seat upgrade on GC, I should still have the CC insurance coverages right??
