Best Way To Keep Areoplan Points Alive?
Since I had more spending this year I decided to get a TD Areoplan card and the American Express Gold Card (which the intention to convert it to areoplans). I am not going to keep either of these 2 cards after the first free year. With the bonus points I got enough for 2 long haul flights and was intending to use them up next year.
I am not too sure about that anymore as I found a cruise my family is interested taking and even though we need to fly there I can fly allegiant for $100 to $150 CDN so when I look at the taxes I would have to pay when using Areoplan points it is almost similar so it seems a waste of the points. I also only need 1 way flight as the cruise ship comes to Vancouver.
I see that my Areoplan points expire (mine says Aug 16,2020) though I know right now I have the TD card so I don't think it will expire but when I cancel this card I am not sure if I will have 12 months from that date or if it will fall to that August 16th, 2020.
Maybe if coordinate my transfer of the Amex points to the card I can get it to August 2021 but if that does not work what is the cheapest way to earn points when I only have the Areoplan card and no credit card anymore?
