So basically you can only use maximum $1000 (2*$500 GC) to purchase a ticket, if the ticker price is higher than $1000, you can't pay by GC...another reason to avoid AC, "best" airline in North America

The key words in the paragraph above are "a seat or travel option." i.e. that paragraph does NOT refer to your ticket purchase. It ONLY refers to the costs associated to upgrading your seat to a preferred seat or some other random travel option (e.g. purchasing lounge access).

Source: Me, as I spent a solid 30 minutes on the phone with Air Canada about this exact topic a few months ago.
So, you are saying for a ticket purchase, you can combine a GC and a CC as payment?

Has anyone actually bought the gift card? Is it the one at the Canada Post Office corner?
When I wanted to do that last year and pay with credit card, they said because of credit card fraud prevention you can only pay with debit or cash.

Let's say $950 for a flight. So $500x2. Problem is, what are you going to do with the remaining $50?
  • seat selection
  • change fees
  • Last-minute upgrades at the airport within the check-in period
  • additional checked baggage fees
  • pet handling fees
  • unaccompanied minor fees

you cant use one gift card and pay the rest by credit? it says you can have up to two forms of payment.

In this case you save $500

So I can buy a $600 ticket and use 1x $500 gift card, then pay the remaining balance of $100 on a credit card? Really confused about this statement "Unfortunately, because of system limitations, when purchasing a seat or travel option for an existing reservation, only one (1) form of payment will be accepted."

As far as I can tell for the Scotia Gold AMEX, need to charge 75% (or more) of trip to card for most coverage to count. Trip delay/cancellation, baggage lost insurance, etc.

The only one that I couldn't find terms for was the Travel Medical coverage - no indication of how to get the coverage (e.g. how much travel to charge to card...).
The travel medical coverage is independent of travel purchase. I have confirmed that via Scotia Assist as switched to this card due to the long travel coverage provided by this one (same for other CC as far as I know)

Dayum, you guys have got me confused also now. Face Screaming In Fear

Suppose I want to buy a ticket for $1,100. Can I use two $500 gift cards and pay the remaining $100 by credit card?

Is the remainder on the 2nd gift card still usable if you have a $900 flight and do 2x$500 cards?

How about payment with one $500 gift card and $600 by CC?

My guess is yes.

Payment Form 1 = $500 gift card
Payment Form 2 = $600 cc
