Aeroplan launched a transfer miles special today for its members. Until
May 24th members can transfer miles to friends and family for 1.5 cents
per mile instead of the regular 2 cents per mile. The minimum transfer
amount is 1,000 miles and has a maximum of 999,999 miles.
Transferring miles is usually not the best use of miles for the cost
associated with it unless it is the case of programs like Avianca
LifeMiles who at times have had 100% bonus miles for transferring to
another account. That being said however, sometimes you may only be a
few thousand miles short of an award so being able to transfer miles
from a family member to reach that award could be the way go rather than
buying miles outright when there is a promotion like this. Even more so
if your family member won’t ever have enough miles to reach their
rewards goal transferring them out to another member to for a valuable
reward makes total sense.
Are you going to take advantage of this offer?
