Last year, Chase and Aeroplan announced what was then a temporary perk for Aeroplan cardholders: a 10% bonus when transferring Chase Ultimate Rewards into Aeroplan. Originally, this was supposed to expire at the end of 2023, but it’s now been extended indefinitely, making it an ongoing perk of the card.

This 10% cardmember bonus will stack with any additional Aeroplan transfer bonuses that Chase runs. For example, the current 20% transfer bonus from Ultimate Rewards to Aeroplan would actually be 30% for Aeroplan cardholders. It’s great news that they’ve chosen to make this a regular perk of the card.
I’m consistently impressed with how innovative Aeroplan has become, both with their rewards program and its associated card. My impression is that they have folks involved in decision-making who get into points and miles, and want their products to be genuinely rewarding because of it.
For me, the Aeroplan card is now one of the more interesting airline cards on the market, with discount award access, the ability to use Aeroplan points to pay yourself back for travel purchases and now this semi-permanent 10% transfer bonus from Ultimate Rewards. Add in 3x on dining and grocery and it’s got me interested in a new airline card for the first time in a while.
