amex offers

Aeroplan has announced a few changes today. Some of them are positive and take effect immediately (lower fees and greater flexibility) while others are negative and take effect in September (changes to stopovers & open jaws).

40% back on some hotels via Dosh (some good deals)

Personally, I love reading these posts.  I like seeing overviews my posts through…
