Aeroplan Tips by Scott O’Leary, Vice–President of Loyalty and Product


“In 2020, we undertook a redesign of Aeroplan with the goal of expanding earning and redemption opportunities. We aimed to make the experience for our eight million members and counting simpler, more rewarding, and easier in terms of sharing benefits with family and friends. But we haven’t stopped there: Year after year, we’ve introduced new partnerships and member benefits to provide the best–in–class loyalty experience that our members have come to expect.”

Below are Scott’s tips on how to earn points quicker and make the most out of your Aeroplan membership.

  • Unlock the full potential of the program with an Aeroplan credit card. Earn points quicker on everyday purchases you make with the card, earn twice when you shop through the Aeroplan eStore, and earn up to 3x the points on Air Canada purchases. Plus, some cards offer exclusive benefits to upgrade your travel experience, like first free checked bags on Air Canada flights and Maple Leaf lounge access. And finally, our most recent benefit to all Aeroplan credit card holders: For every four–night consecutive hotel stay booked with points through our HotelSavers platform, you’ll get a free night – essentially making your 4th night free.

  • Make sure to input your member number every time you book with Air Canada. Not only will you earn points on every flight, but you’ll also get free global Wi–Fi texting aboard all Air Canada flights that have Wi–Fi capability – allowing you to stay connected with your loved ones throughout your journey.

  • Redeem points on travel and beyond. Take off with extras and seat upgrades, save up to 30% on hotel stays with HotelSavers partner hotels and redeem points on over 2,000 products and gift cards at the eStore.

  • Keep an eye out for offers. Some promotions are only available in points. Plus, credit card holders get preferred pricing on flight rewards and access to exclusive promotions.
