Aeroplan recently added Amazon.ca as a partner on their eStore. Since they just launched, they are running a promotion where you can earn 5x miles on purchases at amazon.ca. This ends tomorrow, May 1. To get these bonus points, you’ll have to click through to amazon via the Aeroplan eStore link.
Earn 5x the miles at Amazon.ca with Aeroplan eStore
The earn rate will likely be 1x mile per dollar in the future, so this is a big bonus. As well, Aeroplan Diamond members earn an additional 2x points (and Silver/Black members earn an additional point) per dollar spent on all eStore purchases. If you are using a Aeroplan earning credit card like the American Express Platinum Card, this means you can earn up to 8.25 Aeroplan miles per dollar spent, which is pretty incredible. I value Aeroplan at a minimum of 1.5 cents apiece, so you are getting well over a 12% rebate using this promo.
This is particularly good on categories that don’t normally garner a high bonus, like electronics. I have been using Amazon quite a bit thanks to my Drop Rewards Points redemptions, so I find that while their prices roughly similar or sometimes higher than wholesalers like Costco, their return policy and Prime delivery is really great. You can always make the purchase now, and then return or cancel the order if your plans change.
You do not earn any miles on purchases of gift cards, or purchases on Amazon.com. You must also go through their eStore link, so you forgo any other promotions or rebates otherwise. As always, clear your cookies and turn off any content blockers to make sure the click tracks properly.
