Fourth night free HotelSavers Aeroplan - Is it a good deal?

This offer is very competitive with that of Marriott Bonvoy, which offers 5 nights for the price of 4 for stays in points. However, HotelSavers’ offer differs by crediting the average price of a night against the total of the reservation, rather than crediting only the cheapest night as Marriott Bonvoy does.

Remember that participating HotelSavers hotels are divided into 8 distinct price categories, as shown here:

HotelSavers Aeroplan Categories

According toMilesopedia, an Aeroplan point is worth about , but this figure rises to 0. when points are used for hotel reservations. In other words, it’s often more valuable to use Aeroplan points to book flights rather than hotels.

You can calculate the Aeroplan point value for this promotion and decide whether you think it’s a good use of your points.

For example, this category 6 hotel in Tulum normally costs 162,000 points or CA$1,567 for four nights over the Thanksgiving long weekend. With the free night, you save 30,375 Aeroplan points (the average price of a night) and pay 121,500 points in total.

This gives you a value of 1.28 cents per Aeroplan point, which isn’t bad at all for a hotel reservation! It’s not as high as the exchange value for flights, but it’s an interesting option for free (or almost free) travel.

Aeroplan co-branded credit cards

While there are many ways to earn Aeroplan points, including through transfer partners, this special offer is only available to Aeroplan credit cardholders.

Maybe you don’t intend to fly on Air Canada or its partners for your next trip, but you’ve accumulated plenty of points thanks to the welcome offer on the AeroplanMD* American ExpressMD Card, for example. As a cardholder, you’ll be able to take advantage of the fourth-night-free offer and get more value for your Aeroplan points.

With this welcome offer for the Aeroplan®* American Express® Card, you can earn up to 50,000 Aeroplan points.

Here’s how:

  • Earn 30,000 Aeroplan points after spending $3,000 in purchases on your Card within the first 3 months.
  • Plus, earn an additional 20,000 Aeroplan points when you spend $1,000 in purchases in month 13

With this Card, you earn 2X the points on purchases made directly with Air Canada and Air Canada Vacations.

And 1.5x the points on Dining and Food Delivery purchases in Canada. Anywhere else, you will earn 1X the points.

Enjoy your first checked bag free (up to 23kg/50lb) for up to 9 people travelling on the same reservation on Air Canada®* flights.

Like all American Express Canada Cards, there is no minimum income requirement.

The fourth night free offer is not available to credit cardholders with points transferable to Aeroplan points, such as the American Express CobaltMD Card with Membership Rewards points. You must have at least one Aeroplan co-branded credit card to be eligible for this promotion.

Bottom Line

The new HotelSavers Aeroplan promotion offers attractive point redemption opportunities for Aeroplan credit cardholders. Those who focus primarily on this loyalty program will be able to obtain a higher redemption value for their points on hotel stays of four nights or more.
