Travelling the world with Aeroplan + a chance to win miles!
Each year I treat myself to one or two far away vacations with flights in business class, a nice rental car and some luxury hotels. It might seem like I’m travelling a lot already, and I am, but I’m working on 95% of my trips and it’s nonstop taking photos and social media, early mornings and late nights. So when it comes to taking personal trips, I want to disconnect and really soak in the experiences. For the past few years I’ve been flying out to Japan and South Korea, I’ve fallen in love with the people, culture, food and landscapes in these countries.
I plan these trips about six to eight months in advance and book my flights using Aeroplan Miles in business class. A round-trip in Business Class averages 150,000 miles (plus taxes). It makes those 12 hour flights relaxing and you arrive feeling refreshed and ready to experience your destination.
To date I’ve collected nearly a million miles in just a few years by flying almost exclusively with Air Canada and earning Elite 75K status which even gives me 75% bonus miles for each flight. I use a TD Aeroplan-affiliated credit card (both personal and business) and I use the Aeroplan eStore online retail partners like Amazon and Apple whenever I need to buy something from them.
This year happens to be Aeroplan’s 35 anniversary and to celebrate, Air Canada and Aeroplan are giving away 38.5 million miles to 45 lucky winners! To be in for a chance to win all you have to do is head over to aeroplan.com/35 and register with your Aeroplan number, then start earning or redeeming miles. Each transaction you make gives you one entry into the grand prize draw of 3.5 million miles! You can also win by sharing your picture-perfect trips on social media platforms, tagging the people you would travel with and using #withAeroplan.
Imagine the places you could travel to with those miles!
Great ways to earn Aeroplan Miles are:
- Fly with Air Canada and other Star Alliance member airlines.
- Earn Altitude status with Air Canada and receive up to 100% bonus miles.
- Use TD/CIBC or American Express Aeroplan-affiliated Credit Cards.
- Go through the Aeroplan eStore every time you make an Amazon purchase or other online retailers like Apple.
- Keep an eye out for miles promotions online where you can multiple your miles, especially around holiday seasons.
