The partnership between Costco and Aeroplan
will come to an end on April 30. We also noticed that Primus is gone as
an Aeroplan partner as well. Air Canada does really seem to be going back
to it roots with Aeroplan (or whatever the new program will be called)
and moving it back to a frequent flyer program rather than a coalition
program as the number of non-travel or non-credit card partners is
really being whittled down. Find out more about Costco and Aeroplan here.
Please note that you will still be able to redeem Aeroplan Miles for Costco gift cards beyond April 30.
Also on the loyalty program news front – Rexall is
going to launch their own loyalty program on May 1st. As of that date
they will no longer participate in the AIR MILES program. This just
reiterates what we said in our podcast episode 63 and here on the blog
that it really appears the model for coalition loyalty programs is past
it’s peak. For many retailers now it makes more sense to run your own
loyalty program as the costs associated with doing so have really come
down from years ago. Anyways, you can pre-register for Rexall’s new
program and if you are one of the first 100,000 to do so they will give
you 10,000 points which are worth $4. Right away this tells me the
program has the potential to be confusing! Why $4 for 10,000 points?
You’re already making it complicated Rexall. Find out more and pre-register for the program here.
