Air Canada’s Aeroplan is out with a 100% bonus on purchased points until January 25th. This makes it possible to buy Air Canada Aeroplan points for only 1.3 cents each.

Aeroplan points sales have a tiered structure where you get a larger discount when you buy more points. In this case, you have to buy a minimum of 60,000 points to get the full 100% bonus.

Best Uses for Aeroplan Points

  • Add Stopovers for 5,000 miles: There's great value in the Aeroplan due to the ability to add a stopover on a one-way award for 5,000 additional miles, making it possible to combine two destinations on one award.
  • Lap Infants: Lap infants are just $25 CAD or 2,500 miles per direction (far cheaper than what most programs charge).
  • Travel within US and Canada: Aeroplan charges 6K to 22.5K miles each way in economy class or 15K to 35K miles each way in business class in within US and Canada
  • Business Class to Asia and the South Pacific: Flights to Asia and South Pacific range from 55K-105K one-way in business class (plus 5K miles for a stopover), which can be a particularly good value for awards combining Asia and the South Pacific in one itinerary.
  • Business Class to Africa (with a stopover in Europe): Flights to Africa can vary between from 60K to 100K in business class based on distance (add 5K miles for a stopover within Africa or Europe).

Things to Know

  • How to find awards: Search for available space at Aeroplan.com (you’ll need to create a free Aeroplan frequent flyer account to search)
  • Change and cancellation fees: Fees vary from $25 for a Flex fare change to $100 for a close-in saver change and from $75-$175 for cancellations.
  • Key warnings: Cancellation fees can be high, particularly for close-in travel.
  • Transfer from: Amex, Capital One, Chase, Marriott

It would help if you listed, in your article, what the reasonable redemption value of Aeroplan points are.

Nick

Would this stack with the 10x promo currently running on the Chase Aeroplan card for foreign transactions?

Jules

Need to buy 80k points to get the 100% bonus.
Checked across all 5 Aeroplan accounts in my household.

Jonathan

The offer I see requires 80k+ purchase to get 100% bonus:

Get up to 100% bonus points on your purchase when you buy 5,000+ points. Offer ends July 20, 2022.
Buy 5,000 – 35,000 points, receive a 50% bonusBuy 40,000 – 70,000, receive a 75% bonusBuy 80,000+ points, receive a 100% bonus

It looks like 1.94c is in Canadian currency. In USD, it is around 1.52c.

Buy 60,000-95,000 miles, get an 80% bonus (1.94c per point)

Sachin

I want miles aircanada plz help me if u have

Oliver

If you have points from Amex and Chase, do you buy or transfer from your bank points. Given Chase’s PYB, I would value those at $.015. Are Amex points really worth only $.0138?

This is not a theoretical issue. I have 2 50k certificates from my new Aeroplan card. Do I transfer or buy the extra miles to obtain 2 business class tickets?

PS There is a problem with your calculations. 50% bonus and 65% bonus results in cheaper points than the 80% bonus.

  • Buy 5,000-19,000, get a 50% bonus (1.8c per point)
  • Buy 20,000-55,000 miles, get a 65% bonus (1.65c per point)
  • Buy 60,000-95,000 miles, get an 80% bonus (1.94c per point)
  • Buy 100,000+ points, get a 100% bonus (1.38c per point)

Hi Nick. It seems best to mention that Aerpolan has raised the price of their miles (apparently in January?). Used to be 0.03 CAD, now 0.035 CAD. Comparing this sale to previous sales without mentioning that would be comparing apples to oranges. I see that Loyalty Lobby (maybe others) makes note of this as well.

I don’t agree. The only think that matters is the cent per point value that you are getting the miles at, and if it makes sense for you. Not what the original price is.
