April 20 Update: Air Canada Buddy Pass conversion based on application date not posting date and convert Coast Rewards points to Aeroplan with a 4x points bonus

Here’s your Rewards Canada Daily update! Your daily dose (or near
daily dose) of loyalty program, credit card and travel news, bonuses,
deals and more.

According to an interview with Air Canada Aeroplan execs
that Anshul at Points, Miles & Bling had over this past weekend the
buddy pass conversion option is based on the date you apply not the
date the buddy pass posts to your account – this means you can apply for
this card by April 30 and be able to convert the buddy pass to
Aeroplan points once it posts to your account. Please note there are
mentions on other sites the conversion option is being extended however
there is no confirmation of this just yet – we have reached out to Air
Canada and should know by April 23 if this will be happening. In the
mean time we have updated a trio of articles we posted back at the end
of March / beginning of April to note this change on being able to
convert the pass based on the date you apply:

This is great news for those who applied a few weeks ago when this
conversion option news broke as well as anyone who gets an Aeroplan
co-brand credit card that comes with a buddy pass by April 30

Coast Hotels Coast Rewards
has brought back their great transfer bonus to Aeroplan! From now until May 2 you’ll receive 4x the Aeroplan points when you convert Coast Rewards points.

Last seen in the fall of 2020, the bonus provides 4x the Aeroplan
miles for every Coast Rewards points converted. This means you can get
anywhere from 3,000 to 300,000 Bonus Aeroplan Miles when you convert
those points. That’s right, 300,000 bonus Aeroplan miles.

These are the transfer levels from Coast Rewards and the miles you’ll get:

1,000 Coast Rewards Points = 4,000 Aeroplan Miles (1,000 base + 3,000 bonus)

1,500 Coast Rewards Points = 6,000 Aeroplan Miles (1,500 base + 4,500 bonus)

5,000 Coast Rewards Points = 20,000 Aeroplan Miles (5,000 base + 15,000 bonus)

10,000 Coast Rewards Points = 40,000 Aeroplan Miles (10,000 base + 30,000 bonus)

20,000 Coast Rewards Points = 80,000 Aeroplan Miles (20,000 base + 60,000 bonus)

50,000 Coast Rewards Points = 200,000 Aeroplan Miles (50,000 base + 150,000 bonus)

100,000 Coast Rewards Points = 400,000 Aeroplan Miles (100,000 base + 300,000 bonus)
