2 Weeks in August with Aeroplan from YYZ-TLV from 46,900 Aeroplan points!

Aeroplan is having a market fare sale, with tickets from Toronto to Tel Aviv (with a stopover in Montreal) from as low as 46,900 points, from August 8-22, arriving Friday morning, on the 9th.  There is unfortunately, a $689 fuel surcharge, but at 45K plus the fuel surcharge at that time of year, it's not a bad deal.  For 55K (approx), you can get a direct return to YYZ.
Normally, it goes for 80K, so it's as good as it will get with Aeroplan points at that time of year.
Check it out by booking on

Staycation in a Presidential Suite at the Hilton Markham Suites for $160+tax!

The Hilton Toronto Markham Suites is having some surprisingly low prices for all their room types, including 2 bedroom suites, rooms with a terrace, ones with a parlor, and presidential suites from $160+ around $25 in taxes.  The presidential suite goes for over $700+ with taxes, but starting from $160, it's worth a staycation.  Leave the kids at the in-laws and enjoy a night without having to think about the laundry and the boxes that are still in the basement since you moved in ten years back!  You may not care, but it weighs on your wife!

Get A Free 25K AMEX Points!!

AMEX, through an organization called Perkopolis, which I happen to be a member of through my teacher's union, is offering a deal on the Gold AMEX card.
The gold AMEX card used to come with a waived first year annual fee, but that has not been available for awhile--until now--in a way...
Your annual fee will be charged, but you will be refunded the full amount after hitting the spending threshold of $1500 in three months. Even better, there is NO language stating that the welcome bonus is only available to those who've never had the card, so EVERYONE is eligible!!
If you apply through THIS link, you can apply for the card if you have the Perkopolis RSVP code.
The code is the short form for American Express (I gave it to you right in the beginning of this blog), followed by the first four letters of the organization I mentioned, followed by the number that is one more than 17.  Goes to say, I'm not suppose to advertise the code! BTW, all the letters in upper case letters.
25K AMEX points is worth 25K Aeroplan points (long haul flight across North America), 25K British Airways Avios points (that you could use to fly any of BA's affiliates, including American Airlines, including a long haul flight across North America).  Keep the points as AMEX points until you're ready to use them.  You can be in touch with me on how to get even more with your points!

Join Markham Museum And Get In Free To Over 400 Museums/Science Centres Worldwide!

Joining the Markham Museum with a family pass (2 adults, 4 children) will put you back $79CDN plus then, but then you can get free access to over 400 museums and science centres around the world through its affiliation in the ASTC Passport Program!  To the other places around the world, each has its own rules--many will allow 3 or 4 children for free with 2 adults, so the rules are different for each place, but expect to save a LOT of money.
One warning--you CANNOT use it within 90 miles of either your home or the museum that you have the membership at, so no, you cannot use it to get into the Ontario Science Centre.  ;)
For example, my wife went to the Corning Museum of Glass in Corning, NY--apparently, an amazing museum.  Admission would normally be $19.50USD per adult and free for kids 17 and under.  By having a membership at the Markham Museum, you just saved over $50CDN.  Going to Buffalo for a day or two?  Get in free to the Buffalo Museum of Science--adults are otherwise $11 and all aged children are $9--a family of 6 would save $58USD.  Whether you're vacationing in NYC, Florida, Jerusalem, etc., you'll be thankful you invested in the Markham Museum!
Go to the Markham Museum website HERE.  My understanding is it is sort of like Black Creek Pioneer Village.
Click HERE for a full list of locations around the world that you can get into through the  ASTC Passport Program from May to October 2018.
