Want help to meet your Aeroplan goals? Read on!

News, Tips & Tricks

Aeroplan has launched a new initiative for its
members called Goal Setter at

The idea is to help members reach their
goals by offering them targeted opporunties to earn more miles. I tested
the site out, chose a Paris trip with family for a fall escape.

Once I
did that the site let me know that Aeroplan will do all they can to
reach that goal.

The one thing I noticed however is that the form didn’t
ask how many family members are travelling or it didn’t ask if we
wanted to fly economy or business class. I would find these types of
questions would be beneficial as I would like my family of 4 to fly in
business class which means a minimum of 360,000 Aeroplan Miles whereas
another family might be 5 members and they want economy class which
means 300,000 Aeroplan miles. Without knowing this Aeroplan may not be
able to help reach that goal! You can test this out and set your own goals at

Marriott Hotels will introduce Apple Pay at 11 of
their locations in the U.S. this summer. Not a huge note for us
Canadians yet but if rumours hold true we should have access to Apple
Pay later this year which will change everything and make this real news
for us. (Source tnooz)

Delta Airlines has
introduced a new pay with miles upgrade system which matches their whole
move to a revenue based system. Upgrades on flights wholly within the
50 U.S. states can be upgraded with miles at a rate of .01 per mile per
their example on their site. Not a great use of miles and also not too
important to us yet as this is strictly for itinerairies within the U.S.
