1,000 Bonus Aeroplan Miles on select mileage earning activities

In yesterday's daily update I mentioned the new Aeroplan Around the World Contest but I only went straight to the Aeroplan blog and not their Facebook page. It turns out that you can not only enter the contest via their FB page but if you register your Aeroplan number via the FB page you can 1,000 Bonus Aeroplan Miles when you earn with the featured Aeroplan travel partners:

and the partners included are:

You can find most of these offers listed on my Aeroplan page (the Marriott offer is being added later today) and here is the Facebook offer as it will appear on that page also later today:

Earn 1,000 Bonus Aeroplan Miles when you register your Aeroplan number on Aeroplan's Facebook page and complete an earning activity from selected Aeroplan travel partners. Full details. Until Aug 31, 13

For me I will easily earn the 1,000 bonus miles either through a couple of Hertz rentals I have plus I do have some Air Canada Executive Class flights during the period which aren't eligible for the 50% Bonus as they were booked before the promotional period but should count as activity. What doesn't seem clear about the Facebook promotion is whether it is a one time bonus (I'm leaning this way) or if it is a bonus for each transaction.


  1. Hey Patrick, I'm going to be staying at Best Western and Marriott, but both are free stays through their credit card programs. When we stayed at a Best Western in Florida in March, they didn't know what Aeroplan was. Do I phone them directly after these stays and try to get the points after I register on facebook?
    Thanks, Jay

    1. Free stays typically don't count as mileage earning stays so these won't count towards the 1,000 mile bonus. A qualifying stay is usually a paid stay (flexible rate, advanace purchase, AAA etc.) with corporate rates, reward night stays etc. not counting.
