Bonus Status Qualifying Miles Offer for Aeroplan Elite Members
As part of this promotion, you can earn Status Qualification Miles (SQM) when redeeming points until June 22, 2023, for:
- Gift cards
- Hotel stays (take advantage of Aeroplan HotelSavers)
- Car rentals
- Air Canada Vacations Packages
This offer varies by Aeroplan Elite Member. As an Aeroplan Elite 75K member, I received the following offer:
- Redeem 25,000 – 49,999 points and get 1,000 SQM
- Redeem 50,000+ points and get 2,500 SQM
Other Aeroplan Elite Members received the following offer:
- Redeem 25,000 – 49,999 points and get 2,000 SQM
- Redeem 50,000+ points and get 4,000 SQM
No registration is required: you should have received the e-mail and redeemed your Aeroplan points before June 22, 2023, at 11:59 p.m. (Eastern).
Please note, however, that redeeming Aeroplan points for flights, unfortunately, does not count toward this promotion. And that’s a shame since it’s the best use you can make of your Aeroplan points.
Earn SQM with an Aeroplan credit card
This promotion will be attractive to those short of SQM to renew their Aeroplan Elite status (or upgrade to a higher status). But in most situations, what’s missing are SQS (Status Qualifying Segments) or SQD (Status Qualifying Dollars).
As a reminder, you can earn Status Qualification Miles with your purchases on specific Aeroplan credit cards. For example, with the American Express® Aeroplan®* Business Reserve Card, you earn 1,000 SQM and 1 SQS for every $5,000 in Card purchases. This is particularly useful if you have a lot of business expenses.
This feature is also available to specific consumers cards, such as the American Express® Aeroplan®* Reserve Card or the TD® Aeroplan® Visa Infinite Privilege* Credit Card.
