Aeroplan is offering new members a 2,500 bonus miles and introducing family pooling…a perfect way to legitimately put more miles into your account.
New Members Can Earn 2,500 Aeroplan Bonus Miles
If you are not a member of Aeroplan, you can join here. If you earn your first mile by September 30, 2020, Aeroplan will deposit a 2,500-mile welcome bonus into your account.
Bonuses post within 6-8 weeks of eligible activity and this represents 2.5x more than the 1,000 mile sign-up bonus Aeroplan recently offered new members.
You don’t have to fly to earn the bonus miles. You can also transfer in points from American Express or Capital One or earn miles through the Aeroplan eStore.
Leverage With Family Sharing
Among the new program details yesterday, Aeroplan announced it would offer family sharing. Coming in November, this will be a new cost-free way to pool miles among family members.
I plan to sign up my wife, son, and daughter under this promotion. The result will be a bonus of 7,500 miles…which helps a bit to offset the coming devaluation.
As One Mile at a Time noted and I strongly underscore: don’t try to bend the rules by signing up for multiple personal accounts or under fictitious names. Just don’t do it. You risk forfeiting all your miles if Aeroplan ends up becoming half as zealous as many airlines.
This is a great promo. It may not be worthwhile if you cannot easily transfer in points (I’m still working that out myself) but let your friends and family know that Aeroplan is and will continue to be a valuable program in many respects.
