Earn miles twice tips

  • Put EVERY purchase (no matter how small) on your Aeroplan-affiliated financial card, including all your bills! Make sure you buy what you can at partners - like gas at Esso, and buying what you can at grocery stores and pharmacies so you get more miles!

  • Be diligent to use your Aeroplan-affiliated financial card for all purchases and remember to the card in conjunction with your Aeroplan card to accumulate double the miles.

  • Use your Aeroplan-affiliated financial card to buy Air Canada tickets. Twice the bang for your buck!

    - (Ian from Cambridge)
  • When you have big purchases to make and essentially HAVE the money to make them, like plane tickets, school fees, furniture and when buying groceries, clothing, gas, transportation, even with monthly automatic withdrawals, instead of using your debit card, use your Aeroplan –affiliated financial card and make sure that at the end of the month you pay it off in full. Like this, you accumulate lots of miles monthly and most importantly you've been responsible keeping yourself out of debt.

  • Plan your travels around which Aeroplan partners you can earn with for flights, hotels and car rentals and use your Aeroplan-affiliated financial card to book everything!

    - (Daniel from Brampton)
  • Not all tickets are created (or purchased!) equal. Quickly consulting the Aeroplan earnings chart before booking flights on Air Canada or any other Star Alliance airlines will ensure your ticket and booking class are eligible for Aeroplan Mileage accrual.

Promotion tips

  • Make sure to always check out the Aeroplan app for promotions and bonus offers near you.

    - (Kristian from Cornerbrook)
  • My best tip is to watch for promotions on social media and on aeroplan.com so you can take advantage of the bonus offers to gain as many miles as possible.

    - (Ivy from Red Deer)
  • Wait for promotions to buy really big purchases from Aeroplan partners online through the eStore! That way you get the miles you would normally get through your Aeroplan-affiliated financial card, plus bonus miles buying through the online store, and the multiple miles from the promotions! You can basically quadruple your miles from one big purchase just by waiting for the right day to buy!
