Purchase Aeroplan points: examples with discounts
For example, it costs $1,400 (before taxes) to purchase 80,000 Aeroplan points. This is equivalent to 1.75 cents per Aeroplan point. This is still very good, as our Aeroplan point valuation is 2 cents.
By comparison, the current offer for the TDMD AeroplanMD Visa Infinite* Card earns up to 70,000 Aeroplan points, free of charge for the first year.
Whereas to buy 70,000 points with the 35% discount, the cost is $1,592.50. This is equivalent to 2.3 cents per Aeroplan point.
That’s more than our Aeroplan point valuation of 2 cents. So buying points at 35% costs more than they’re worth.
