5 easy tips for collecting more Aeroplan points on a daily basis
With temperatures soaring and summer break around the corner, that can only mean one thing: it's time to start planning that next vacation.
The last two years have been incredibly difficult for travel-lovers, but that only makes things better when you finally book that first flight after a long break.
Which also means it's the best time to take stock of, earn, and redeem, travel points for maximum savings.
Those travelling via Air Canada, will probably already know of Aeroplan, the best in-class travel rewards program that allows you to redeem points for flights, cool rewards like car rentals and Air Canada vacation packages, and helps you have a better travel experience - because who doesn't love seat upgrades, lounge access and Wi-Fi onboard?
The best part? You can rack up those points quickly through simple transactions in your daily life! Here are some fast and effortless ways to earn more points.
Yes, it really is as simple as grabbing a cuppa joe. You can earn points by linking your Aeroplan and Starbucks® Rewards accounts, and loading money onto your digital Starbucks® Card in the Starbucks app.
Don’t have a Starbucks Rewards account yet? You can create one when linking and you'll even get a welcome bonus of 400 Aeroplan points after your first eligible purchase. It’s a win-win.
Requesting an Uber or ordering food via the app are a part of everyday life now, so why not earn points while you're at it? Simply link your Aeroplan and Uber accounts within the Uber or Uber Eats App and earn points on eligible rides and food orders.
This includes 1 point per $1 spent on rides to the airport with Uber, or on food orders via Uber Eats of $25 or more. Those taking their first ride or placing a food order for the first time can earn 1,000 points as a new Eater or Rider. Plus, members will earn bonus points with limited time offers.
That's right, you can earn one point for every $4 spent on your favourite beverages.
Plus, earn more with monthly bonus offers on eligible products. All you have to do is download the Air Canada app and scan the QR code on your digital Aeroplan card at the LCBO checkout.
Aeroplan has a number of different credit cards and you can get incredible welcome offers when you get approved for your first card and meet certain criteria. Once you get the card, it's easy to rack up more points by spending or booking tickets with your card.
Earn on every purchase with your card and twice the points when you shop via the Aeroplan eStore while using your Aeroplan credit card. Plus, on eligible cards you can earn extra on gas and groceries
Additionally, not only are you earning faster with an Aeroplan credit card, but you can redeem more easily with access to preferred redemption pricing. That means flights will often cost fewer points!
With so many great earning and redemption options, and the fact that your points don't expire if you're an Aeroplan credit cardholder – it's a no brainer to add the card to your wallet.
You can earn more points by shopping some of your favourite brands. The Aeroplan e-Store is an online platform with over 200 retailers and you can earn more points by shopping through it.
The list is extensive, from Best Buy to Sephora to Lululemon. So, you can enjoy shopping – and earning – at the same time.
If you're planning to fly out this summer but haven't joined Aeroplan, there's no better time to sign up!
