Aeroplan introduces dExclusives rewards for Distinction members - tell us which one you like for a chance to win 5,000 Aeroplan Miles!

Yesterday Aeroplan announced and launched the latest benefit for its Distinction members, dExclusives. What is dExclusives? It is an new reward option that will allow Distinction members to bid on or redeem Aeroplan miles on a wide variety of one-of-a-kind rewards.  This new reward option reminds us of SPG's Moments where you bid Starpoints on similar money can't buy experiences and is the first to be offered by a Canadian based loyalty program. This definitely can be a good reward option for those members who have more miles than they know what to do with, especially on the high end items like the FIFA World Cup or Grand Slam Tennis final offers!

From yesterday's press release:
dExclusives will offer everything from access to professional sporting events, tickets to sold out concerts and once–in-a-lifetime trips that are curated to offer some of the highest quality products and  some of the most in demand experiences from around the world.  dExclusives rewards include:

Escapes – Once-in-a-lifetime trips such as a trip to the world soccer championships in Brazil, and weekend getaways, such as a trip to the PGA Championship or a wine-tasting weekend in Napa Valley.

In the City – Amazing tickets to some of the best events in town such as: Sold-out concerts or exclusive access to sporting events. 
Money Can’t Buy – Building on Aeroplan’s Money Can’t Buy reward category, members can bid on a variety of truly priceless, highly coveted items such as a customized guitar signed by musical artists such as Alanis Morissette or Nickelback, or signed sports memorabilia like PK Subban’s autographed Team Canada Olympic jersey from Sochi.
 
Here is how it works:
Browse – Distinction members can check out all the rewards currently available for auction at the dExclusives auction site: www.aeroplan.com/dExclusives.
Bid – Place an entry or maximum bid on the site.
Win – If you’re the highest bidder when the auction closes, you win.  Miles will be automatically debited from your account and you will be contacted by an Aeroplan dExclusives representative about the next steps.

In addition, Distinction members will also have a chance to bid on ‘Redeem Now’ opportunities whereby special rewards will be offered in limited quantities and at a fixed amount of miles, giving members the thrill of accessing their dExclusives reward instantly.

  1. I'd bid on the world cup trip! I think more trips to select sporting events that include flight, hotel and meals would be awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  2. If it weren't already outside of my Aeroplan account range I'd bid on the World Cup trip. I think more "destination" style trips could be cool to include: African Safari, Tasting tour in Tuscany, etc.

    ReplyDelete
  3. Of what they have I would bid on the world cup prize. For future auctions it would be cool if they offered a large lump sum amount of aeroplan miles like 1,000,000, or some sort of arrangement where you could take a free round trip flight anywhere in the world once a month for an entire year.

    ReplyDelete
  4. I'd love the Napa Valley Wine Trip - great area and I'd love to ride the wine train.

    ReplyDelete
  5. The World Cup experience. I would like to see more unique packages like that.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Seeing as how there is a world cup trip, I would love to see a Stanley cup finals trip or World Junior hockey trip etc too

    ReplyDelete
  7. I'd bid on the Wimbledon finals! I'd like to see more sporting events included in the auction.

    ReplyDelete
  8. I'd be bidding on the World Cup experience if I could - and other packages like that (Stanley Cup, etc.) would be nice, especially smaller, more affordable auctions (for those of us with less miles).

    ReplyDelete
  9. I love the idea of the packaged tour options, and like how they include everything you need (hotel, flight, transport). I really like the world cup one, and the Napa Valley experience sounds lovely.

    ReplyDelete
  10. World cup... but price is far too high. The Brazil one states they will be paying the taxes and fuel surcharges, the UK one does NOT. Buyer beware...

    ReplyDelete
  11. Round the world trips!!!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Would certainly bid on the World Cup package. Hope dExclusives brings more trip packages in J, especiallt to Asia.

    ReplyDelete
  13. The New York package would be great!. For future auctions there should be a mix of small and large items. Many of us don't have the points for the large packages, but would like to participate. Many of us may not be big point earners, but we are loyal to Aeroplan!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I think the World Cup Package sounds promising!

    ReplyDelete
  15. World Cup package is my current choice. Air Canada status would be a nice option.

    ReplyDelete
  16. World Cup pkg. would be my first choice. Future dExclusives i'd like to see trip packages to see The Oscars or The Grammy's all in VIP style of course ;)

    ReplyDelete
  17. Gotta go with the World Cup package! For future dExclusives auctions, I'd like to see more farflung, really exotic and unknown places. As in, you could use your Aeroplan miles to fly to (place you've never heard of).

    ReplyDelete
  18. The World Cup package is clearly the top of my list.... And how about adding the opportunity to see all of the Grand Slam tournaments in a Tennis!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Def World Cup as top pick, once in a lifetime experience. Would love to see multiple stop Round the World trip, first class on the top Star Alliance carriers.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Local concerts may be with in most people's points range but auction items get bid up and people overpay

    ReplyDelete
  21. The World Cup would be a great item to bid on. Any exclusive sport or entertainment option would have my interest

    ReplyDelete
  22. Money can't buy items seem the most interesting offers!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I would bid on the World Cup trip or Wimbledon. I like the idea of offerring Status, lounge passes etc. However, the lengthy bidding window means that bids on some items have already exceeded the value of the package (eg. Broadway). How about some flash or short duration auctions where there is a chance of getting a bargain.

    ReplyDelete
  24. The trip to New York would definitely be great for me. Seeing Broadway shows and the Big Apple would be a great way to use my Aeroplan Points.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I liked both the Broadway and Wine Country auctions, but they are both getting bid up far beyond the value of the points.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I would like to bid the World cup trip to Brazil, it will be once-a-life-time experience.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I don't like any of the options. Why isn't there something cultural offered? The Broadway plays offered are simply more pop culture. Aren't there any special exhibitions upcoming at the Museum of Modern Art or Metropolitan Museum in New York or? Why not operas? I like the wine tasting in Europe idea, and the Stanley Cup playoff idea. Why not to cities (like Edinborough) with theatre festivals?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Soccer championship, and for future items on the list: premier league soccer games in England, Germany, Spain, Italy Portugal or the Netherlands. Brazil or Argentina

    ReplyDelete
  29. Wine tour, hands down. A trip with a near endless supply of reds ... heavenly.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I like the World Cup in Rio. I'd also go for a Grand Prix or the 2016 Olympics in Rio. Even a stroll down the beach in Ipanema would be pretty fine.

    ReplyDelete
  31. If I had lots of Aeroplan miles I'd bid on the Broadway weekend in the Big Apple. What I'd really get excited about would be bidding on different kinds of lessons with pros around the world. Like a pro chef in Paris giving cooking lessons. I'd also bid on a personalized new wardrobe designed by a fashion consultant in Milan or New York. How about skiing lessons from a pro in Switzerland? Golf lessons in Maui. The list is endless!

    ReplyDelete
  32. NAPA VALLEY WINE TASTING GETAWAY

    ReplyDelete
  33. In the future the chance to meet and dine with artists, business leaders and other influential people

    ReplyDelete
  34. NAPA VALLEY WINE TASTING GETAWAY!
    I'd love to see more adrenaline inducing, all inclusive packages in future dexclusives auctions.

    ReplyDelete
  35. NASCAR tickets !!!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Jennifer JohnsonMay 29, 2014 at 12:39 PM

    If I had to bid, New York & Broadway. That is how I feel today. Ask me another time and you will get a different answer. To that degree, in future there should be quite an eclectic selection of items to bid on...Jacques Villeneuve Driving Academy, Rocky Mountaineer Experience, Cooking instructions from established chefs/restaurants. Wine tours, extra in a TV show or Movie, Cruises, Family Reunions, Make a Wish for my Special Relative, Family Day at Disney, or Medieval Times, or Amusement Park. Family Dinner with Limo ...and the list goes on.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Tickets to attractions!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I feel like bidding on the world cup final. It is a unique chance, however the number of miles people currently bid on those items are ridiculous. I guess it is simply because we have too much aeroplan miles to squander! :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. I'd bid on the round the world trips

    ReplyDelete
  40. I would bid on around the world plane tickets and for "money cant buy experiences" like behind the scenes meetings/lunches with famous inspiring people.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I would bid on Broadway or Napa in a heartbeat

    ReplyDelete
  42. concert tickets

    ReplyDelete
  43. concert tickets!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Concert tickets

    ReplyDelete
  45. Concert tickeets

    ReplyDelete
  46. I would bid on round world tickets and money for special behind the scenes photo tours with top notch photographers

    ReplyDelete
  47. Escapes – ex. week-end in Nappa Valley



    Would also like promo like special flights; lounge access passes.

    ReplyDelete
  48. The New York weekend sounds like fun.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I love the sound of the Napa Valley escape.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  67. tennis in london. rafa and djokovic. the best.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Once in a lifetime trips, especially to ones that I could never afford on my own

    ReplyDelete
  69. Napa Valley Wine Tasting please (:

    ReplyDelete
  70. I like the idea of a travel escape package like napa or Broadway... More inclusive and special than redeeming just for flight and hotel but hopefully not absurdly expensive. Also, these could probably be offered more often so there is a better chance of winning an auction.

    ReplyDelete
  71. I would bid on Queen and Adam Lambert except I am already going with three good friends. It should be a riot. I like to save my miles for travel, so small endeavours like this one appeal to me as they wouldn't cost too many miles.

    ReplyDelete
  72. World Cup soccer in Brazil!

    ReplyDelete
  73. I'd bid on exotic experiences and destinations. I'm thinking Burma, Vanuatu, Nepal, sky diving, base jumping, pyramids, having my own boat and skipper for a day, etc. I save my points for those once-in-a-lifetime type trips that will bring me lasting memories.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Napa Valley Wine Tasting would be of interest to me

    ReplyDelete
  75. Queen and Adam Lambert

    ReplyDelete
  76. I would bid on 3-4 day trips to U.S. destinations which would include 4star or better hotel, flight and attached with attractions to see.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Round trip air and hotel to Cambodia to join a missionary group to assist in stopping the sex trade of children as young as 6

    ReplyDelete
  78. Many more flight rewards, upgrades,etc. Also electronic gizmos. Concerts, etc do nothing for me.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Steve JayaratnamMay 30, 2014 at 6:11 AM

    I would bid on the World Cup, but I would love to see a round trip to Egypt to see the Pyramids.

    ReplyDelete
  80. I would bid on Lady Gaga tickets!

    ReplyDelete
  81. I would like to see more concert and theatre tickets

    ReplyDelete
  82. I would vote for World Cup Soccer in Brazil or Grand Slam Tennis Finals in London. The local concerts don't strike me as anything unique or exclusive.

    ReplyDelete
  83. I'd bid on flights to Australia (Melbourne preferred or Gold Coast).

    ReplyDelete
  84. planned vacation to exotic destinations

    ReplyDelete
  85. love football and Brazil

  87. I would bid on tickets to Lady Gaga

    ReplyDelete
  88. I would bid on the world soccer finals in Brazil

    ReplyDelete
  89. I would bid on flights to anywhere in Canada! It is not that I don't care about others, but I care more about spending money within our country so that it benefits our people and our economy than spilling it elsewhere, uh!

    ReplyDelete
  90. I would bid on the Broadway Weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  91. The escapes are most interesting. Agree with another user that weekend getaways including airfare and hotel including a key event (sports, broadway show, concert, wine tour) would receive a bid from me. A combo of urban and more exotic destinations are always good.

    ReplyDelete
  92. I am all for creativity! I would bid on dinner with an influential figure OR a week getaway in a villa in a distinct beautiful destination. BUT...of the choices DEFINITELY the world cup tickets!!

    ReplyDelete
  93. Norm SchwartzmanMay 30, 2014 at 7:34 AM

    I would bid on flight rewards

    ReplyDelete
  94. The Gibson "All Stars" guitar would be nice....how about a trip to Machu Picchu, ancient capital city of the Incas, high in the Andes mountains near Cuzco, Peru?

    ReplyDelete
  95. I'd bid on the Napa wine tasting trip

    ReplyDelete
  96. I'd bid on a Golf Trip

    ReplyDelete
  97. We scuba dive, so a dive trip with J airfare to the Coral Triangle would be awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  98. Weekend getaways including airfare and hotel including a key event (sports, broadway show, concert, wine tour) would receive a bid from me. Love to see One Direction tickets for the Toronto show in July be available as a bid.

    ReplyDelete
  99. I'd bid on a trip to Australia / New Zealand.

    ReplyDelete
  100. A week in Paris would be very tempting.

    ReplyDelete
  101. Events and adventures interest me.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  104. Dinner with the dali lama

    ReplyDelete
  105. I would love European adventures like olive oil tastings, wine tastings, outdoor operas, small group Tuscan tours etc. Also family adventures like go-karting or front of the line access to fairs like the PNE. My husband loves the idea of going to the soccer World Cup but he doesn't have enough points yet for that.

    ReplyDelete
  106. Flight rewards, definitely, but they have to be worthwhile i.e. I don't want to find the value of the reward seriously devalued by add-ons and surcharges (such as the fuel surcharge that is added for domestic reward flights but not for tickets that are purchased).

    ReplyDelete
  107. I'd like to bid on flights and hotels in Switzerland, Philippines and China. How about ticket to Andre Rieu's and Sarah Brighton's concerts?

    ReplyDelete
  108. Flight and hotel rewards to Europe, China and India. Tickets to Yari, Sarah Brighton and Zubin Mehta's concerts.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  114. Catherine RobichaudMay 30, 2014 at 1:18 PM

    Of the ones listed now I like the Napa Valley Wine Tasting Getaway. For future I would love to see trips to Europe.

    ReplyDelete
  115. I would bid a Dream European Trip!!!

    ReplyDelete
  116. The Napa Valley wine tasting auction item has the most appeal to us as requires the least amount of forward planning to take. It's less of a dream and more of great way to burn miles.

  118. Would bid on river cruise in europe

    ReplyDelete
