Buy Aeroplan miles with 85% bonus
If you’re unfamiliar with buying points or even Aeroplan – let me just quickly run through it. Often times, airlines and hotels will straight up sell their points with a bonus or a discount. If you have a flight or hotel stay you’re planning, and you’re either short or completely without points, you can buy the points you need to shore up your account. Heck, you could even buy the points for the flight or hotel night cheaper than you could with cash. Only buy points when you know you have a reason to use them and it makes financial sense.
Aeroplan is selling their miles for roughly $0.0144 USD.
If you’re unfamiliar, Aeroplan is Air Canada’s award program and it’s pretty fantastic. 1.44 cents per point is a very good deal, if you have a reason to use them.
Why am I stressing you have a reason to use them?
Airlines and hotels devalue their programs all the time. Aeroplan recently updated their program, and historically they’ve been quite customer friendly with notifying us with changes… But, you never know.
Aeroplan is also a transfer partner of American Express, Capital One, Chase, and Bilt. For the record you can also convert Marriott Bonvoy points into Aeroplan. Aside from Marriott..I value all of those points more than 1.35 cents…so it could be worthwhile purchasing the points vs transferring. Additionally, I don’t have affiliate links for buying Aeroplan miles – this is just a great deal.
This is a limited time offer and ends September 3rd, 2022
You must buy at leaset 15k in order to get 85%
As you can see above…there are minimums for each bonus tier. If you maxed the offer out, you’d be sitting on 925k Aeroplan miles for $13500 USD
- 2021 – 1.2c = 700k for 10,500 CAD
- 2022 ( Spring ) 100% bonus was offered
Where I would use Aeroplan Miles
You can fly from the US to Europe for 70k miles. If you want to bake in a stopover…5k miles will do the trick. So, you could fly Swiss biz to Athens from LA, stop in Zurich for a few days, and then pop down for a total of 75k miles. That’s a really good deal.
US to South Africa for 85k each way.
US to Australia in Etihad first class for 140k
While 140k seems like a lot of points you could fly like this from the US to Abu Dhabi to Australia for under $2000 just buying the points. That’s insane.
