To the point

Aeroplan has announced a new multi-year partnership with Uber Canada that promises new ways for Aeroplan members to make their everyday lives more rewarding both at home and on the road.

With this new partnership between Aeroplan and Uber Canada – which follows the previous one between Aeroplan and Uber Eats – eligible Aeroplan credit cardholders will be able to enjoy unlimited $0 delivery fees on eligible food and grocery delivery orders, ride discounts, and more with a free Uber Pass membership.

Uber Eats: $0 delivery fees and free Uber Pass membership

Starting today, Aeroplan credit cardholders can take advantage of a free Uber Pass membership ($9.99 value per month).

Uber Passoffers the following benefits:

  • Unlimited $0 delivery fees on eligible restaurant orders over $15 on Uber Eats
  • 5% off eligible restaurant orders over $15 on Uber Eats
  • Unlimited $0 delivery fees on Cornershop orders over $40 from eligible grocery stores (available in select cities)

These terms and conditions are the same for all eligible Aeroplan consumers and business credit cards:

  • You have up to one year to claim your free membership. Aeroplan credit Cardholders must activate their free membership by September 7, 2022 to take advantage of this offer. Once activated, the free membership will last for a period of 3, 6 or 12 months.
  • The offer is only valid once. Maximum of one free membership per account – even if you have multiple Aeroplan credit cards.
  • When your free membership ends, the full Uber Pass rate will apply. If you cancel, be sure to do so at least 48 hours before the last day of your membership to avoid being charged.
  • If a participating Cardmember already has an active membership with automatic renewal at the time of enrollment in the Free Uber Pass membership, the Free Uber Pass membership will begin on the first day of the next billing cycle.

In addition to the free Uber Pass membership and discounts, don’t forget that you can get up to 10 times the points with the American Express promotional offers below.

Until September 23, you can earn between 5 and 10 times points for spending on food delivery services (like Uber Eats!):

These are bonus points that are in addition to the points you would normally receive for purchases made on your card . To see your offers, check your online account here.

Conclusion

Home food delivery services are definitely on the rise, especially since the COVID-19 pandemic began. Some credit cards have actually added a specific category for earning points for the various services that are Uber Eats, DoorDash or SkipTheDishes. The American Express Cobalt® Card, for example, offers 5 points per dollar for these services. That’s the equivalent of 5 Aeroplan points per dollar.

As a reminder, a few weeks ago, RBC had launched a similar partnership with Uber Eats’ competitor DoorDash. Some RBC credit cardholders can get a 3 to 12-month DashPass subscription.

This new Aeroplan x Uber Canada partnership offers significant savings on local transportation and food deliveries while earning Aeroplan Points.

Aeroplan has recently announced several agreements with airlines (such as Eurowings Discover and Gulf Air) as well as with businesses such as Starbucks and LCBO. The program promises another big partnership later this year. So all bets are off!

In any case, Aeroplan credit card holders are especially fortunate. Here are the best current credit card offers:
