Did any other gold collectors get an invite to a free wine tasting event? I tried to RSVP but apparently they reached capacity.

I got that invite but didn't bother trying.

In the past whenever I recived an invite for something they already reached capacity. Except for once about 18 years ago Molson had a great offer for an arcade sized table hockey game and I was able to get one. I still have it and use it today.

On a side note I only need 500 more miles before I can book my flight to DW! Maybe I should convert my HBC rewards.

It made no sense to me that I can fly to Orlando in 2011 but in 2012 if they change Stan Solos wife and my DD14 names on the tickets to Stan Solo and my DD16 it's a security risk.

I never did cancel the tickets because they were not willing to give me anything for them. Not the Airmiles, not the insurance fee I paid, not the taxes, not the fuel charge, NOTHING! When my wife and DD14 never showed up for the four flights UA sold three of them to people flying stand by. In the end I lost 8800 Airmiles plus all the crazy fees and taxes they throw on top of the "free" tickets.

My DD16 and I went without them and had the time of our lives! The trip could not have been any better! Everyone on the entire trip was so friendly except for the UA employee that we had to deal with in Winnipeg I think she hated her job and her life. In Orlando on the way home the UA employee asked if my wife and DD were going to make the flight. When I told her what happened she upgraded us to business class. Finely someone who showed some hart.

My DD and I already booked our second trip for next year! If I can raise the Airmiles...
oh no :O( Dince you are planning another trip for next year, you should have cancelled properly so that at least DW and DD can use the tickets then! What rotten luck otherwise. :O( I would be frustrated for sure!

There was no ponit in canceling the tickets becuse both AM and United was not about to give me back anything. My DW and DD had to use their credits within six months and had to go to the US. My DW was thinking about going to Calgary to visit her brother but no she had to go with UA and they don't fly from Winnipeg to Calgary.

I was hoping for hope that once I canceled at the airport I would get something back. Instead I got the rudest person I had my entire trip (if not my entire summer) at the United Airways desk right here in Winnipeg.

In Orlando I was talking to the lady at the ticket counter and explained what happened. A little later she called me to the desk and told me she bumped us up to business class for our trip from Orlando to Chicago. I got a whole 2 inches of leg room. It was however the first time during this whole mess that I felt like someone cared for their customer.

I now see that when you book with Airmiles the cancelation insurance is called any reason insurance. When I book later this year I will have a question or two about this.

Their insurance policies changed about maybe June or July (not sure the exact date) as they switched providers. The new policy states that you can cancel for any reason but you only get a full refund if it's one of their 29 covered reasons for cancelation, otherwise the max you'll get is about 50%.

Hope this helps.

This is interesting. We booked in Febuary so I guess we were still on the old insurance plan even though we flew in Auguest. This is good to know for next year not that I can see us canceling this trip...unless DD(16 that will be 17) gets a good job and can't get the time off. Even then Stan Solo would realy be going solo.

Anyone know why Walt Disney Tickets for Children are in the Last Chance section for Air Miles? Are they going to stop offering the Walt Disney Tickets - I sure hope not because that is my main objective with Air Miles.

Tickets are still shown under the entertainment section too, but they are only showing base tickets available. Last chance has both base and "All-inclusive", so maybe they are just doing away with the all-inclusive option.

With the recent changes, and dimishing rewards, it's anyone's guess though. Disney tickets were one of our last options for airmiles as well, so I hope they don't get rid of them completely.

Airmiles is fast becoming unappealing.

I usually buy my plane tickets with my airmiles to GO TO Disney so still worth it for me even if they were to cancel the Disney admission. I have also used airmiles for Legoland tickets, Universal Orlando etc, car rentals, hotel vouchers (for the Downtown Disney resorts). I LOVE airmiles no matter what

I am brand new to airmiles and need some information on timing from experienced people.

In Ontario, what has been people's experience with when Metro base and bonus points get posted to your account? I'm also considering placing a couple of online orders to take advantage of the 10x bonus on until tomorrow, however also wondering about timing for these points as well.

Once you have accumulated enough points and placed an order, how fast has it been delivered?

I was considering saving for Universal Orlando park tickets but my window of opportunity for our upcoming trip may not allow enough time for this to happen.
