One thing we haven’t seen too much of from the new Air Canada Aeroplan program are bonus offers for flying (that one is a bit obvious as to why), hotel stays, car rentals and more. Yes, the current situation due to the pandemic in Canada and globally has curtailed travel and thus the promotions around them. However we track bonus offers from 170+ loyalty programs from around the world and are definitely starting to see the bonus offer market make a come back. With Aeroplan this really hasn’t been the case however – right now we only have the small bonuses with the new Starbucks partnership and of course the ongoing offers for credit cards but beyond that nadda. Aeroplan used to be king of the castle when it came to bonus offers – in fact back in 2014 when kept detailed notes on the 5,000 or so bonus point offers we posted on our global site FrequentFlyerBonuses.com Air Canada came out on top in the number of promotions released that year.
Well we’re happy to tell you that there is at least one new Aeroplan bonus offer that came out this week and we hope it is just the beginning of more to come from Air Canada’s new program. That offer is for car rentals from Avis. This offer is perfect if you need to rent a car to get out of the city to go exploring or are making your way to some other beautiful part of our country this spring.

Wrapping it up
It’s nice to see Aeroplan have this new limited time bonus offer and we’re pretty sure we’re going to see some more (maybe even a deluge) of offers soon as Air Canada did state in their press release for the Starbucks partnership that “Aeroplan Ahead” is coming soon and that will provide limited time offers for earning on the ground and at home!
