3 New ways to earn Aeroplan Miles easily
A few years ago we wrote about how we accumulate Aeroplan Miles quickly. While all of those options are still available, we’ve started to earn Aeroplan Miles three new ways. We redeem a lot of miles every year, so we’re always on the lookout for new ways to earn more.
Today, we want to share these 3 easy travel hacks with you.
Every year we redeem our Aeroplan Miles for flights. Redeeming miles is one of the ways we’re able to fly our family of four to expensive destinations. Next month, for the first time, we redeemed our Aeroplan miles to purchase two Business Class tickets for our flights home from Portugal to Vancouver (more on this upcoming trip here).
We’re celebrating a milestone birthday with NO kids – so we thought it was time to splurge!
Earn Aeroplan Miles with Carrot Rewards
Carrot Rewards started last year and it rewards you for getting fit and beating your average daily steps. It’s a great, and fun, way to easily earn miles. And it’s Free. If you live in British Columbia, Ontario or Newfoundland, Carrot Rewards is open to you. It says on its website that it hopes to get the other Canadian Provinces on the program soon.
How does Carrot Rewards work?
You download the Carrot Rewards APP on your phone (here’s the link on Google Play and iOS). You can also link your account to your Fitbit. Once the program has determined your average steps, you start to get rewarded with Aeroplan Miles (or your preferred rewards program) when you hit your average step goal.
I love that once it’s set up, it takes no work. It just happens behind the scenes. It’s a great incentive to get you moving and it’s a good reminder when you don’t hit your daily average steps.
Learn about the Carrot Rewards program here.
A new feature on the APP is the Step Together Challenge.
You link to friends and, working together, you can earn even more miles.
Use our code ( nicolew0568 ) when you register and you’ll get extra miles and we will too. Win, win!
Earn Aeroplan Miles when you buy through Amazon.ca
Like many people these days, we uses Amazon.ca frequently. I like their prices and variety of choice. It’s my go-to website when I’m looking for hard to find items. I’m very excited to learn that we can now earn Aeroplan Miles when we shop on Amazon.ca.
Starting April 24, 2018, Aeroplan members who visit Amazon.ca via the Aeroplan eStore will be able to earn at least 1 Aeroplan Mile for every $1 dollar spent.
How does it work?
- Go to the Aeroplan eStore.
- Login into your Aeroplan Account with your Aeroplan number and last name
- Click the Amazon.ca link (Shop Now) and you will be sent to Amazon.ca
- Shop as you normally would
- You earn at least 1 Aeroplan Mile for every $1 spent on Amazon.ca
To celebrate the launch of Aeroplan’s new relationship with Amazon.ca, from April 24 to April 30, 2018, Aeroplan members can earn 5x the miles when they shop at Amazon.ca via the Aeroplan eStore.
After that, Aeroplan members can earn 2x the miles from May 1 to May 11, 2018.
To earn Aeroplan Miles when shopping, you need to enter Amazon.ca through Aeroplan’s eStore.
It’s worth mentioning that it’s not just Amazon.ca where you can earn extra Aeroplan Miles. There are over 150 stores in the program, including Bed, Bath and Beyond, The Bay, HomeAway and many more.
If you are an Aeroplan silver, black or diamond member, you’ll earn even faster when shopping with Amazon.ca as you’ll receive 2 or 3 times the miles. You can learn more about Aeroplan status here. And, if you use your Aeroplan-affiliated financial card, you can earn miles twice.
