A rewarding getaway on a tight budget
From the Toronto Star:
Problem: The family needs a weekend getaway in the middle of a July heat wave, but cash-flow is tight after repairs to our aging minivan.
Solution: Use our Aeroplan and Air Miles reward points to “get out of Dodge” and bankroll a glorious weekend getaway in Niagara Falls.
Maybe this isn’t quite as glamorous as converting your travel rewards for a flight to a foreign hot spot in mid-winter. But when the mercury is stuck at 35C in southern Ontario in July, a weekend escape to the Falls is almost as welcome.
And for two youngsters who had never been there before, this was cause for real excitement.
