You earn a 60% bonus on purchases between 3,000 and 20,000 points; 85% bonus on purchases of 25,000 to 50,000 points; and 125% bonus on purchases of 60,000 to 500,000 points. A 125% bonus equates to buying points at 1.14 U.S. cents per point.

I purchased miles with this offer last November. A 125% bonus was a no brainer for me and the only question was how big to go. Max out? That’s over $12,000 for 1.125 million miles.

When considering what credit card to use if you take advantage of this offer, Aeroplan points purchases are processed by points.com, which means they do not code on credit cards as travel or airfare.

Air Canada has a reasonable award chart (e.g. U.S. East Coast – Europe in business class 60,000 points each way, no fuel surcharges, 5,000 extra points for a stopover) and more redemption partners than any other airline. Fly Air Canada itself and pay additional miles for full refundability and gain access to their incredible Signature Suite prior to departure in Toronto or Vancouver.

  1. My offer has a minimum of 80k to get the 125 percent bonus. So I’m I guess there are different targeted variations

  2. Just a note that Aeroplan awards do carry surcharges beyond actual taxes, although they are relatively mild. Also, be mindful of the expiration policy and ensure renewal of your miles.

    That said, at a purchase rate this low, I’m a buyer, even speculatively, as it’s very near to the points’ “floor” value and there are still sweet spots to be found in the program. So I bought a tranche yesterday.
