Earn more Aeroplan Miles faster with this Valentine’s Day promotion
Aeroplan is running a Valentine’s eStore promotion from Feb 3 to Feb 16, 2020.
Traveling as a family of four gets expensive. Because of this, we’re always on the lookout for ways to cut down our travel expenses. One of the ways we’re able to travel as often as we do is by collecting and redeeming Aeroplan miles.
We’re long time supporters of the Aeroplan program. Every year we redeem our miles for flights and car rentals, which saves us a lot of money.
We love it when Aeroplan runs its 5X or 10X promotion events. It’s an opportunity to earn more miles faster.
For this Valentine’s Day promotion, Aeroplan is offering members up to 5 times the miles when you make purchases through the Aeroplan eStore. As an example, if you spend $200 or more through the Aeroplan eStore at select retailers, you can earn up to 1,000 Aeroplan Miles.
If you are not already a member, you can sign up here. It’s free to join.
How to earn up to 5x Aeroplan Miles while shopping online?
- Go to the Aeroplan eStore here.
- Login with your Aeroplan number and last name
- Click the retail store you’d like to visit (make sure you search for participating stores)
- You will be redirected to the retailers website
- Shop as you normally would
- You then earn Aeroplan Miles with your purchase(s)
How do Aeroplan Miles show up in your account?
I prefer to use the Aeroplan App to keep track of my Aeroplan Miles and transactions. I log-in into the App and click transactions to see my purchase history and the extra miles from the promotion.
Learn about the Aeroplan App here.
There are lots of stores participating in the up to 5X promotion on the Aeroplan eStore, including Amazon.ca, Indigo, GAP, Sephora and Hudson’s Bay.
By shopping online through the Aeroplan eStore, we will accumulate miles up to 5x faster.
Buying gifts for Valentine’s Day
We like to get each other a gift for Valentine’s day. With our trip to Panama only days away, we’re purchasing our Valentine’s Day gifts for the trip (instead of chocolates and flowers).
Nicole’s gift to Cameron from the Aeroplan eStore
One of the destinations we will visit in Panama is the San Blas Islands. These islands are remote and you must take a guided tour to visit them. We plan to spend a few days on the islands.
The main attraction to these islands are the pristine waters and isolated beaches. The beaches and islands look amazing. We can’t wait to share our photos with you in the next few months.
To get some different underwater photos, I purchased a Split Dome for our GoPro Hero6. I found the split dome on Amazon.ca for $55 CAD (This was the price as of February 2020).
By purchasing this Valentine’s Day gift through the eStore, we earn 55 Aeroplan Miles and an additional 165 Aeroplan Miles with the up to 5X promotion – for a total of 220 Aeroplan Miles.
Cameron’s gift to Nicole through the Aeroplan eStore
We plan to be spend a lot of time in the water in Panama. As we learn more about ocean preservation, we understand that many sunscreens are harmful to reefs and that special sunscreen should be used when snorkeling.
Cameron purchased reef safe sunscreen from Sephora for all of us to use – specifically, the Umbra Sheer™ Physical Daily Defense SPF 30. This product was found at Sephora for $45 CAD (as of February 2020).
By purchasing this Valentine’s Day gift through the eStore, we earn 45 Aeroplan Miles and an additional 225 Aeroplan Miles with the up to 5X promotion – for a total of 270 Aeroplan Miles.
We will earn 490 Aeroplan Miles from these 2 purchases that we would have made anyways. By taking the one extra step to visit the Aeroplan eStore first, we earn more miles faster.
