Why use the Aeroplan eStore?
Aeroplan points earned through Aeroplan eStore purchases can be redeemed for a variety of rewards, from gift cards to airline tickets.
The main advantage of accumulating points with the eStore is the ability to earn substantial rewards without spending extra money or taking flights. What’s more, some retailer websites offer points bonuses, so you can earn even more.
The Black Friday period is particularly advantageous for Aeroplan members. The eStore allows you to collect Aeroplan points very quickly with its many promotions. It’s really profitable !
For example, during this period, the retailer Dyson is offering 10 X Aeroplan points, during an event that multiplies the opportunities to accumulate Aeroplan points. So when you buy a $550 Dyson Pire Cool Link fan-purifier with an Aeroplan credit card, you can earn :
|Accumulation source||Aeroplan Points|
|10 X Dyson Aeroplan points promotion||5,500 points|
|Promotion 10 X Aeroplan points with an Aeroplan credit card||5,500 points|
|Aeroplan status: 2 X points||1,100 points|
|Earn 1.25 points/dollar (taxes included) on a TD® Aeroplan® Visa Infinite Privilege* credit card||790 points|
How to use the Aeroplan eStore portal
First, go to the Aeroplan eStore page and log in to your Aeroplan profile in the top right-hand corner. If you are not an Aeroplan member, you can register for free.
Then, in the Retailers tab, select the business where you wish to make an online purchase.
In this example, the GAP clothing store has been selected. At the moment, every pre-tax dollar spent in this boutique earns 4 Aeroplan points. This varies according to promotions.
Then click on Shop & Earn.
A new browser window will open. To make sure you receive the points, stay on this new page.
Then shop as usual.
Aeroplan membership numbers will never be requested in online stores. What counts is that you have clicked on the eStore link, stayed on the new page and completed the transaction.
A few minutes or days later, you’ll see the transaction in the top right-hand menu of the eStore, by clicking on Order History.
This function can be useful, but don’t count on it too much. Sometimes, it’s not very reliable.
Then all you have to do is wait for the points to arrive, within 6 to 8 weeks. Sometimes it’s faster.
You’ll see them in your Aeroplan profile on the Air Canada website, in the Activity tab.
You’ll see Aeroplan Points divided into several installments:
- Accumulated base points
- Additional points earned through Aeroplan status, if applicable
- And promotion points, if any
For credit card promotions, it will be earned directly by your card issuer on your monthly statement.
If, despite your best efforts, you do not receive your Aeroplan points, apply for the missing points.
The icon is located at the bottom of the Activity section.
Aeroplan and eBoutique partners: Amazon, Best Buy, Apple, Simons, Sephora, The Bay, Decathlon, Disney+, Reitmans, etc.
Then, once the customer’s purchase is confirmed, Aeroplan will also pay out rewards points as a thank you.
In addition, there are promotional days such as Amazon Canada Prime Day, which, for example, you can earn up to 13.25 Aeroplan points per dollar spent by visiting the Aeroplan eStore and using a TD Aeroplan credit card to pay for purchases.
Usually, Black Friday, long weekends or vacations are the best times to see promotions on the Aeroplan eStore.

What is the Aeroplan program and membership card?
Aeroplan is a loyalty program linked to Air Canada. Points earned on flights, Aeroplan credit card purchases or in the Aeroplan eStore earn Aeroplan Points.
You can also use your points for everyday purchases with Uber Eats, for example, or convert your points into Starbucks Stars.
These Aeroplan points are then used to purchase gift cards, merchandise, vacation packages or airline rewards in the form of airline tickets.
What is the value of an Aeroplan Point?
The value of an Aeroplan point according to Milesopedia is 2 cents. But this depends on how you choose to use them. For the best use of your points, we recommend redeeming them for airline tickets. While it is possible to redeem your Aeroplan points for merchandise or gift cards, this is generally less profitable.
It’s also worth noting that points can be accumulated more quickly during certain promotional periods, such as Black Friday.
To maximize your point accumulation, double up and use your Aeroplan credit card when you shop at the eStore to collect even more points.
How many Aeroplan Miles or Points are required for a trip?
