Aeroplan just launched mileage-earning for Uber Eats orders in the U.S. and Canada. And from today through June 15 they’re offering 10 miles per dollar for food delivery requests you may be placing anyway. (Going forward mileage-earning will be at least 2 miles per dollar.)
In order to earn miles you need to start at aeroplan.com/ubereats. Click on the ‘Shop Now’ button and enter your Aeroplan account number and last name.
You’ll be redirected to the Uber Eats website or app. On a desktop I manage to get redirected to the Uber Eats site no problem. On a mobile device I assume it’s supposed to open the app, but I haven’t been able to get it to do that (and I’ve set the page to allow for popups).
I value Aeroplan miles at 1.4 cents apiece to 10 miles per dollar is a 14% rebate.
You do not earn miles when using promotions or coupons on UberEats orders, so any coupon that gives you more than 14% back on your order is a better deal. Any time you order from Uber Eats without a coupon this represents huge value. However I will generally prioritize coupon discounts over mileage-earning, especially once this introductory 10 miles per dollar ends and Aeroplan earning is lower.
Earning Aeroplan miles is independent of payment method. That means you can choose any credit card to pay that is bonusing food deliver (or, like Capital One, that is letting you redeem miles at full value to pay for food delivery).
That means this is an entirely new, stackable, avenue of value for Uber Eats food delivery orders which is huge – especially since Aeroplan lets you redeem for Star Alliance awards on their website, at reasonable rates and many partners without fuel surcharges, and now including awards on Etihad as well.
