Some good news from the fine folks at Aeroplan this week which is needed after the news of the breakup with Esso last week. Starting late in April, Aeroplan members will be able to earn miles for shopping online at Amazon.ca. Here are some excerpts from today’ press release:
Starting April 24, 2018, Aeroplan Members who visit Amazon.ca through Aeroplan.com, will be able to earn at least 1 Aeroplan Mile for every $1 dollar spent.
Aeroplan status members will earn even more miles when shopping at
Amazon.ca. Members with silver and black status will earn up to 2x the
miles while members with diamond status receive up to 3x the miles per
How it works:
- Aeroplan Members simply visit aeroplan.com/estore;
- Using the search function on the page, find Amazon.ca;
- Enter your Aeroplan Number and last name;
- Click on the ‘Shop Now’ button to be redirected to Amazon.ca.
Happy shopping! Members will earn a minimum of 1 Aeroplan Mile per $1 spent.
For me I like this news, my family does shop a lot via Amazon.ca and usually go through ebates.ca but ebates only pays 1% back on most categories except during promotional periods – with Aeroplan offering 1-3 miles on all purchases the return is 1.5% to 4.5% at a minimum.
You may ask though what about the Aeroplan and Air Canada break up that is coming in a little over two years, well I am still accumulating Aeroplan miles as I do use them quite quickly and know those I start earning via Amazon next month will be going towards flights over the next 24 months.
What do you think of this news?
