As with every opportunity to buy points and miles with a bonus or discount, it's important to do the math and evaluate your situation before buying points from Aeroplan. Award programs can devalue with little notice, so you are almost always better off holding cash.

The other situation to consider is if you lack points & miles to use for an upcoming flight. If you are looking at paying cash anyway, do the math to see if you would pay less to buy points from Aeroplan and then redeem them for an award ticket. If so, save money and make the redemption (after confirming that award seats are available first, of course).

Now try redeeming their points on for business class award ticket jfk/del and their best offer was 460,000 miles with three stop and only 5% was in business class, rest two sectors in economy class

American Express US Membership Rewards, Chase Ultimate Rewards, and Capital One miles can also be transferred 1:1 to Aeroplan. However, all of these programs have a much wider variety of unique transfer partners that are otherwise unavailable to Canadians.

Air Canada allows you to buy a significant number of miles at once. The price in USD per mile is very reasonable, considering the breadth of partners and availability to book all of them online without having to call.

Members will earn Altitude Qualifying Dollars whether they buy or gift Eligible Aeroplan miles. For example, if a member buys 50,000 Aeroplan miles for the price of $1,500, then the dollar amount would earn $1,500 Altitude Qualifying Dollars (AQD).

For those who wish to reach Air Canada Altitude Elite status, this is a good opportunity to doing it without the hassle of flying. Members can earn 25K and 35K status with a $3,000 or $4,000 miles purchase.

With travel demand surging in North America and Europe, that is not exactly surprising. Still, it is a cautionary tale that award space can be here today, gone tomorrow. In the world of miles and points, feasts become famines very quickly.

Matthew is an avid traveler who calls Los Angeles home. Each year he travels more than 200,000 miles by air and has visited more than 135 countries. Working both in the aviation industry and as a travel consultant, Matthew has been featured in major media outlets around the world and uses his Live and Let's Fly blog to share the latest news in the airline industry, commentary on frequent flyer programs, and detailed reports of his worldwide travel.

Tools like Great Circle Mapper can help you easily calculate the miles flown. Aeroplan also has a Points Predictor tool to help you know how much your award flight will cost based on the zones and distance flown.

You and up to 7 family members can be part of a family sharing pool, which you can set up from your Aeroplan Dashboard. Once the pool has been created and your family members joined, all the Aeroplan miles earned amongst the family pool will add to 1 shared mileage balance.

Knowing the mileage flown, look at the correct distance tier on the award chart to determine the price of the award ticket. In this case, a one-way business class seat from New York to Bangkok would be 85,000 Aeroplan miles. You can add a stopover in Istanbul for just 5,000 additional miles, for a total of 90,000 Aeroplan miles.

Some of these airlines are very niche, so perhaps not valuable to everyone. However, given the remote destinations some of these airlines serve and how easy it is to earn Aeroplan Miles, it makes it possible to use miles and points to fly to these hard-to-reach places.

Within North America, flights less than 1,500 miles flown are as little as 10k Aeroplan miles in economy when the flight is operated by partner United. Flights less than 500 miles flown are only 6k Aeroplan miles in economy.

In the Atlantic travel zone, flights under 1,000 miles are only 7,500 one-way Aeroplan miles in economy for partner-operated flights. This can be a great option for connecting by air between cities in Europe and between Europe and North Africa.

For example, you can fly on Star Alliance airline Avianca between Bogota and Santiago, Chile for just 15k Aeroplan miles one-way in economy or 30k Aeroplan miles one-way in business class.

Now, imagine adding a stopover within South America for just 5k, perhaps into gorgeous Patagonia, and it could be possible to get 3 South American destinations for as little as 20k Aeroplan miles.

Aeroplan miles are easy to earn given their access via travel rewards credits and hotel credit cards offered by American Express, Chase Ultimate Rewards, Marriott, and Capital One. As a Star Alliance member and a partner with numerous additional airline partners, there are a lot of ways to redeem your Aeroplan miles.

My thoughts on the Aeroplan sale is that now there are 1000's of Canadians (mainly I presume) with huge stashes of miles which will make *A awards even scarcer when travel resumes. I note on other AC blogs that many have immediately booked award travel for later this year (mainly Canada to Europe) - they obviously think international travel will open up a lot sooner in North American than here Down Under. (If you look at Canada's CV metrics this is quite surprising).

Same question as Al Dunbar, if you are still monitoring this site. I just called aeroplan and they said that i could not buy a ticket for cash and then upgrade with points. Maybe things have changedJoe

Aeroplan has a new rewards category featuring exclusive rewards that money can't buy. All proceeds from these rewards will go toward Aeroplan's Beyond Miles partner, War Child Canada. The rewards include a Sabian drum cymbal signed by Neil Peart, drummer and lyricist for Canada's rock band RUSH for 141,000 Aeroplan miles; a Gibson guitar signed by METRIC for 59,000 Aeroplan miles; a Gibson acoustic guitar signed by JIM CUDDY, singer and guitarist from BLUE RODEO for 117,500 Aeroplan miles; and a Gibson Epiphone guitar signed by MOBY for 94,000 Aeroplan miles. Aeroplan will also be offering limited and exclusive access to the Luminato, Toronto Festival of Arts and Creativity. In 2009, over 2.1 million rewards were issued to members.

Many Aeroplan members collect miles via credit cards. Credit cards were originally allocated to CIBC and Diners Club/enRoute, but were later offered to AMEX Bank of Canada, while Diners Club withdrew from the program.[7] (The contract with CIBC expired at the end of 2013, and Aimia began a new partnership for credit cards with Toronto-Dominion Bank as the primary issuer, with CIBC relegated to a secondary role of January 1, 2014.[8][9])

Aeroplan points expire if the member has no account activity for a period of 18 months.[13] In the past, Aeroplan had a policy where all miles would expire after seven years, even if there was continued activity in the account. This policy has since been cancelled as of June 27, 2013.[14]

When miles expire, Aeroplan offers to restore the miles for a fee of $30 plus $0.01 per mile, which in some instances has resulted in charges of several thousand dollars for high-mileage members. Members have argued that Aeroplan had already been paid for the miles through the selling partner by virtue of the retail pricing and by fees charged for certain collector credit cards. As a result, on many blogs, members were upset that their miles had been emptied from their accounts.[15][16]

Prior to Air Canada's acquisition and relaunch of the program in 2020, Aeroplan rewarded users with status levels upon reaching a particular level of points accumulation in a given year. This program was called Aeroplan Distinction. The levels were Aeroplan Silver, Aeroplan Black, and Aeroplan Diamond, requiring 25,000, 50,000, and 100,000 miles, respectively. Most points qualified for these levels, including those from credit card spending and actual flying, but excluded points from credit card sign up bonuses, prizes, etc. At higher levels, members were rewarded with less expensive flight redemptions, priority access to call centers, and status matching with other rewards/loyalty programs.

In another announcement, Aimia cancelled Aeroplan's "seven-year mileage redemption policy".[31] The policy had originally come into effect at the beginning of 2007, and provided that all miles would expire if unused after seven years, with the accumulated mileage of all customers as of January 1, 2007, expiring at the end of 2013. Aimia CEO Rupert Duchesne told Bloomberg news service that people had been worried there would be a run on Aimia's cash flow in 2013, but cancelling the seven-year expiration policy removes that worry.[8]

In addition, on June 27, Aeroplan announced the launch of Distinction, a tiered recognition program that rewards top accumulating members based on total Aeroplan Miles earned across all coalition partners, with preferential mileage levels for redemption, bonus mile offers, and exclusive privileges. Benefits begin as of January 1, 2014, and include three status levels based on a member's total eligible mileage accumulation during the calendar year: dSilver (25,000 miles), dBlack (50,000 miles), and dDiamond (100,000 miles). 041b061a72
