Update:The offer mentioned below has expired and is no longer available.

Throughout the year, numerous promotions — across many travel providers — allow you to purchase points or miles with a bonus or discount. However, not all of them represent a good opportunity for award travelers.

We’re here to filter through the noise for you and highlight only the best deals, so you can travel further and more comfortably for a lot less.

Right now, Air Canada is running a terrific promotion when buying Aeroplan points: get up to an 85% bonus through January 29, 2024. 

Let’s take a look at how buying points could be a great deal for you, depending on your travel goals.

Air Canada’s Latest Buy Aeroplan Points Promotion

Through January 29, 2024, Aeroplan has the following offer when buying Aeroplan points:

  • Purchase 3,000 to 20,000 points and get a 40% bonus
  • Purchase 25,000 to 35,000 points and get a 60% bonus
  • Purchase 40,000+ points and get an 85% bonus (1.41 cents per point)

We value Air Canada Aeroplan points at 1.5 cents apiece, so buying points at this price can be a great option if you have a very high-value redemption lined up.

Additionally, there is a limit of 1 million purchased points per year and a per-transaction limit of 500,000 points.

Why You May Want To Purchase Aeroplan Points

Here are the 2 main situations in which we think buying points and miles is valuable:

  • You don’t already have a large balance of these points and miles or don’t have enough transferable points (e.g. Amex Membership Rewards or Chase Ultimate Rewards)
  • Doing so will allow you to purchase a business or first class ticket for far less than the ordinary cash cost

Consider this: purchasing 210,000 Aeroplan points would set you back around $2,900 — certainly not a small sum of cash. However, with those 210,000 points, you could fly round-trip in Lufthansa first class between the U.S. and Europe.

These tickets usually cost about $7,000, so you would save over 60% by purchasing points compared to the standard cash fare!

Hot Tip:

Final Thoughts

It doesn’t always make sense to purchase points or miles. Usually, using any miles you already have for your booking would make much more sense. However, if your mileage balance is looking bare and you have an immediate use for these Aeroplan points, purchasing during this promotion can make a lot of sense — and save you a lot of cash in the process.
