The AA Advantage Executive Platinum number with almost no waiting time has ended. Had to wait 16 minutes. Does anyone have the new good number?


According to Wiki in "Starwood Starpoints Transfer To Airline Miles Master Thread" Starwood > Aerplan transfers..."Aeroplan - Names don't need to match. - Usually takes about a day and half to 2 days to transfer."

1. Transfer a minimal # of points from Amex or SPG to keep all your points from expiring.

2. If you live in Canada, go to Esso and buy $3 of gas and swipe your Aeroplan card. IIRC they'll even take a # without a card, so if you have a friend in Canada who wants to buy gas and give you the points....

3. Buy something from the Aeroplan e-store. I think it works just like a cash back portal, and also takes 6-8 weeks for miles to be credited to your account (not sure how quickly option 2 posts).

4. If all else fails, sell your miles to a broker, provided that someone's willing to buy your miles close to expiry.
We don't have cards or we'd just use them. I do have spg. I'm gonna look and see how much we both have if it's actually worth it. I know we don't have much. Thanks

Like I said, IIRC Esso will let you give them your Aeroplan # without your card. And the Aeroplan e-store doesn't need a card.

I was looking at a flight from YYZ-TLV OW for 40k. I thought I checked the fees and that it was minimal. Now that I'm ready to book I see fee for $395.76. Is this a mistake? Seems very high, no?
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

Depends which airline your flight is on. Aeroplan doesn't charge YQ on United and Swiss.

Does Singapore or Lufthansa M&M charge fuel surcharges on AC?

You're right, I stand corrected.

We don't have cards or we'd just use them. I do have spg. I'm gonna look and see how much we both have if it's actually worth it. I know we don't have much. Thanks

Anther simple option that I left out is to donate 1000 miles to charity through Aeroplan's site to keep all your miles alive.

I find that when I book from a phone, a lot of apps are easier/better than going online.
