[BMO] HOT! BMO World Elite 3,000 AIR MILES Bonus Miles plus FREE Companion Flight Rebate, and FYF

BMO World Elite 3,000 AIR MILES Bonus Miles plus a Companion Flight Rebate, and FYF ($120)

There seems to be a contradiction regarding what is shown 3000AM based on $2500 monthly spend. AND the T&C which states 1000AM for first purchase and Bonus 2000 if you spend $3000 on first three months. IF the bonus 3000AM is true then this is really HOT!

The FREE Companion Flight Rebate is hot!

† BMO AIR MILES World Elite Mastercard (“Credit Card”) applications must be received between August 15, 2017 and November 30, 2017 (the “Offer Period”) to be eligible for the following Bonus Miles, Companion Flight Rebate and Annual Fee Waiver offers (each an “Offer” and collectively the “Offers”):

AIR MILES Bonus Miles Offer: Receive 1,000 Bonus Miles after your first purchase using your Credit Card. Bonus Miles will be credited to the primary Credit Cardholder’s AIR MILES Collector Account within forty-five (45) days of purchase. Receive an additional 2,000 Bonus Miles when you spend a minimum of $3,000 (less refunds and excluding cash advances, cash-like transactions, interest charges, fees, credit or debit adjustments) on purchases using the Credit Card within the first three (3) months from the Credit Card open date. The additional Bonus Miles will be credited to the primary Credit Cardholder’s Collector Account within sixty (60) business days following the qualifying $3,000 spend. All Bonus Miles are credited in accordance with the set balance preference (between AIR MILES Cash and AIR MILES Dream balances) at the time of posting.


Companion Flight Rebate Offer: To be credited the Dream Miles for your Companion flight ticket, you must book any two flights (one way or return) for travel anytime (subject to availability from participating suppliers at the time of booking) through airmiles.ca using your Dream Miles before November 30, 2018. Both flight tickets must be booked in the same transaction, and on the same itinerary (both flights must be travelling on the same day, departing from the same location in Canada, and arriving to the same destination). You must have accumulated a sufficient balance of Dream Miles in your Collector Account to use for both flights in the same transaction to be eligible for this Offer. You will be credited the number of Miles back into your Dream Account that is equal to one flight ticket (excluding all taxes, fees and applicable surcharges) within 45 days after your flight booking, notwithstanding your balance preference (between AIR MILES Cash and AIR MILES Dream balances) at that time. To be eligible for this Offer, your BMO AIR MILES World Elite Mastercard account must be in good standing at the time such Miles are credited to your Dream Account. The Collector is responsible for paying all taxes, fees and applicable surcharges at the time of booking. There are no cancellations or refunds permitted on tickets once booked. Changes to flights may be permitted; restrictions may apply and changes are subject to applicable fees. In the event of a cancellation of either flight for any reason after booking, Dream Miles credited for the Companion flight may be deducted back from the Collector’s Account. Offer cannot be combined with any other Miles redemption offer. Offer is subject to the Flight Rewards Terms and Conditions of the AIR MILES Reward Miles Program, available on airmiles.ca.


•Annual Fee Waiver Offer: The primary cardholder annual fee of $120 will be waived for the first year. After the first year, the annual fee will appear on your Credit Card statement twelve (12) months after the Credit Card open date. Offer does not apply to the Additional Card annual fee.


All Offers are subject to change or be withdrawn without notice. Limit of one of each Offer per Collector Number. Existing BMO AIR MILES World Elite Mastercard customers who cancel their card during the “Offer Period” and existing BMO Mastercard customers who transfer into this Credit Card product during the “Offer Period” are not eligible for the Offers. If the Credit Card is cancelled within ninety (90) days from the date it was opened, all Miles earned within that period will be cancelled and the Companion Flight Miles (if applicable) will be clawed back. The AIR MILES Bonus Miles Offer and the Companion Flight Rebate Offer are each subject to the AIR MILES Reward Program Terms and Conditions.

I think $2500 * 12mo = $30k spend, and at 1AM per $10, you'll earn 3k AM apart from the sign up bonus.

FYF + 3k AM signup (about $310 at $10/95AM) + 2 PP lounge pass + companion flight rebate seems pretty good.

Does this card still give the cardholder a 25% redemption discount on dream miles?

If so, and if it stacks with the companion flight rebate this would be pretty sweet deal!

Is "Companion Flight Rebate" Offer a one-time offer, or an offer annually (can be redeemed once a year)?

yes, because the way their information/product page is presented, the 3000 Bonus Airmiles is not mentioned at all (which is only mentioned in the T&C).

So anyone reading this page (without looking at the T&C) will only assume that they need to spend $2500/mth to get 3000AM annually, and the only real benefit is the Companion/Travel Insurance/Airport lounge/1AM per $10 spend

Get 1 Mile for every $10 in credit card purchases.16B Here's how it works:

Spend

$2,500

monthly on card purchases16B


Get

3,000

Miles annually


Redeem

95 Cash Miles = $10

Flights start at 950 Dream Miles
