If I worked at a loyalty program I feel like working at Aeroplan would be the place I would want to be at right now. Not only is it Canadian but right now they are making so many moves on so many fronts that they are the program to watch. I like to keep busy and Air Canada sure seems to be keeping their Aeroplan employees busy! Where other programs are sitting on their laurels and not really doing much during the pandemic Aeroplan has been doing the opposite. Working for one of those other programs would be boring and I’d be going out of mind twiddling my thumbs. Anyways let’s get back on topic here – more Aeroplan news. Now it’s a new promotion from the program that is broken down into two parts – both of which require you to register for beforehand which you can do right here.
Part 1: Book and earn up to 150% bonus miles
Pretty simple – a systemwide flight bonus for flying on Air Canada, Air Canada Express and Rouge. When you book new flights within the eligible fares between today and August 4 for travel between today and September 30 you’ll receive up to 150% bonus Aeroplan miles. 100% is doled out on all eligible economy class fares and 150% is awarded on premium economy (incl. premium Rouge) and business class fares.
Part 2: Redeem and get up to 40% miles back
This is similar to the offer Aeroplan just ran a few short weeks ago albeit that one was a flat 50% in North America only. When you redeem Aeroplan miles for an award flight you’ll receive a rebate of miles after you complete that award travel. This means you do have to have the full amount of miles in your Aeroplan account to redeem for a flight – say 25,000 miles for a round trip flight in Economy Class within North America. Then when you complete the travel, Aeroplan will give you 7,500 back into your account as the rebate is 30% on for economy class. The rebate increases for the higher fare classes with 35% back for premium economy and 40% back for business class. Like the flight bonus above the rebate is valid for award booked between today and August 4 for travel between today and September 30. It is valid for Air Canada, Air Canada Express and Rouge flights and it works on both Classic Flight Rewards and Market Fare Rewards. If your award flight is on a partner airline or contains legs with a partner airline you will not be entitled to the rebate.
And that’s that! Two big promotions coming out of Air Canada’s Aeroplan again to help stimulate travel or at the very least to sway those who have to travel to travel on Air Canada rather than other airlines. Remember to be able to participate in either of the above offers you have to register your Aeroplan number first. Click here to learn more and to register for this offer.
