Terms And Conditions

Miles cost $27.50 per 1,000 miles, plus a 7.5% tax recovery fee, and GST/HST for Canadian residents. Miles are non-refundable and do not count toward MVP and MVP/Gold status. Offer is subject to change and all terms and conditions of the Mileage Plan Program apply.

Bottom Line

The cost of miles for this promotion is $0.021 cents per mile, not a great deal. Still, this purchase miles option may be good to top off your account for an award if you are close to the redemption level.
