With my old Amex Airmiles card, I got 1 mile for every $20 that I spent. So to fly from Vancouver to Edmonton @ roughly 700 miles one way, it would cost me $14,000- but you can't use the miles at Xmas due to a blackout period, the only time I usually go. Or else you can't use them in conjunction with other offers, or it's used against the full fare value (not seat sale price), or only with such and such airline, or you have to stand on one foot while playing Purple Haze on a kazoo held in your left hand only, etc etc. Bullspit! With a card like MBNA, I can stick my refund into my bank account and use it for any ticket any time I want. So if i see a seat sale, I can just jump on it.
