Step 3: Be Smart
Here’s why I wanted to spend that $10.50…
I have a TD First Class Visa. It comes with the following points structure:
The top one is a return of 1.5% on my flight, for booking with Air Canada.
The bottom one is a return of 4.5% on my flight, for booking with Expedia.
That means that buying the tickets from Air Canada would actually have cost me $624.94 [634.46-1.5%].
The second pair? $615.94 [$644.96-4.5%]
So, by “spending” an extra $10.50, I actually saved myself $9.00.
