    Thanks for the link!

    Here's something amusing though. Out of curiosity I clicked on the rules link ("I have read & accept the contest rules ...") and here's what I got:

    I was intrigued and did a search and found this possible explanation for the latin text.

    In publishing and graphic design, lorem ipsum (or simply lipsum) is standard placeholder text used to demonstrate the graphic elements of a document or visual presentation, such as font, typography, and layout. Lipsum also serves as placeholder text in mock-ups of visual design projects before the actual words are inserted into the finished product. When used in this manner, lipsum is also called greeking.

    Does this make sense to anyone familiar with graphic design?

    Aeroplan would have forgotten to remove the placeholder text. We do know that errors do happen.....[​IMG]

    Here's the registration info from the site:

    Registrant:
    Sylvain Belanger

    Domain Name: AEROPLAN-STARCONTEST.COM

    Domain servers in listed order:
    NS-1945.AWSDNS-51.CO.UK
    NS-144.AWSDNS-18.COM
    NS-810.AWSDNS-37.NET
    NS-1102.AWSDNS-09.ORG

    For complete domain details go to:
    http://who.godaddy.com/whoischeck.aspx?Domain=AEROPLAN-STARCONTEST.COM

    Further investigation shows the domain servers are registered to Cossette Communications, so it's likely it's a case of premature release of something underdevelopment.

    I did not see a link to this site from either AC or AP sites. I decided to take a pass on it (even though it maybe legit).

    Yes, that makes sense. Someone forgot to put in the actual rules for the contest. And the same placeholder text also shows up for the Aeroplan T&C! :rolleyes:

    Cool promo - thanks for stumbling across it. Does anyone know where it was originally marketed?
