Use at least 20,000 Aeroplan points to book a hotel room with HotelSavers or rent a car between July 8 and July 17, 2024. Then get up to 20% back in points to celebrate Aeroplan’s anniversary.

This is valid for stays or rentals made between now and December 31, 2024, and the Aeroplan points awarded will be paid out within 6 weeks after the end of the trip.

And don’t forget that the 4th night is free for Aeroplan credit card holders. With the 20% Aeroplan points back, it should pay off!

Once again, registration on the Aeroplan promotion page is mandatory.

20% points back on gift cards

Between July 8 and July 17, redeem at least 20,000 Aeroplan points per order in the eStore, valid on :

  • All catalog merchandise;
  • All gift cards;
  • The Apple Rewards Store.

Then, within 10 weeks of July 17, 2024, you’ll receive 20% points back on your Aeroplan points spent on these items.

Earn 40% more points with an Aeroplan credit card

It is important to note that this loyalty offer runs only between July 14 and July 17, 2024. Get a head start, as you’ll need to register on Aeroplan’s promotion page to earn your precious Aeroplan bonus points.

During these 3 days, the primary Aeroplan credit cardholder earns an additional 40% points per dollar spent on all eligible purchases. Expenses incurred by a supplementary cardholder count toward these expenses, but bonus points are credited to the primary cardholder’s Aeroplan account.

Bonus points for the 40% will be deposited within a maximum of 10 weeks (for American Express and TD) and up to 12 weeks (for CIBC) after July 17, 2024. The 40% bonus points are applied to eligible purchases, up to $40,000 (i.e., the maximum is 16,000 Aeroplan bonus points).

All purchases count except cash advances, interest charges, fees, balance transfers, payments, rebates and other similar credits or cash transactions.

For example, a $100 purchase at the grocery store with an American Express®* Aeroplan® Reserve Card will give you :

  • 200 basic Aeroplan points (2 points / $1 purchase)
  • 80 Aeroplan bonus points (40% of 200 base points)

For a total of 280 Aeroplan points! It’s as if every dollar gave you 2.8 Aeroplan points, instead of 2.

With a TD® Aeroplan® Visa Infinite* Card, that same $100 at the grocery store will give you :

  • 150 basic Aeroplan points (1.5 points / $1 purchase)
  • 60 Aeroplan bonus points (40% of 150 basis points)

For a total of 210 Aeroplan points.

So, if you can, delay your purchases for these 3 important days! The eligible period coincides with Amazon Prime days.

Bonus points for new Aeroplan credit cardholders

If you’ve never had an Aeroplan co-branded credit card and you’re missing out on the 40% bonus points promotion above, there’s a way around it!

Between July 8 and July 17, 2024, sign up for an Aeroplan credit card and earn 40% in bonus points within 40 days of approval.

The conditions are similar to those for the promotion of current holders:

  • Eligible American Express, TD and CIBC credit cards are the same as above (except for the Air Canada American Express Card, which is by invitation only);
  • The 40% Bonus points will be deposited within a maximum of 10 weeks (for American Express and TD) and up to 12 weeks (for CIBC) afterwards;
  • The maximum eligible purchase is $40,000;
  • The calculation for bonus points is the same as in the previous section.

So if you’re approved for a TD, American Express or CIBC Aeroplan card on July 10, for example, you have until August 19 inclusive (40 days later) to take advantage of this 40% bonus in Aeroplan points.
