Who wants to win 30,000 Aeroplan miles?!


Our travel partner Aeroplan is having a birthday. And it’s a big one.

On July 12, 2014, Aeroplan is turning the big 30. Now, we couldn’t let such a significant milestone pass without a kick ass birthday present, could we?

To celebrate in style, we asked our contact at Aeroplan if we could host a giveaway for our readers. Well, it seems that the folks at Aeroplan have been in a generous mood these days because they responded with an incredible offer.

Aeroplan has offered to give one of our lucky readers 30,000 Aeroplan miles!

That’s a round trip flight to virtually anywhere in North America or several nights at a luxurious hotel of your choosing. What will you do with 30,000 extra Aeroplan miles?

We’re often asked, “How do you afford to travel so much?”

Well, redeeming our Aeroplan miles certainly helps. When we book flights we need to purchase three seats now, and that number is soon to increase to four when Connor turns two years old. Purchasing four plane tickets can blow up a travel budget pretty quickly, so it’s important to look for creative ways to subsidize our travel expenses.

When we visited Sayulita last month, the airfare alone was going to cost us $2,500 for 3 round-trip tickets, which was well out of our budget. We decided to redeem our Aeroplan miles instead and found direct flights from Vancouver to Puerto Vallarta for 40,000 miles each (with less than $500 spent on total taxes and fees).
