Aeroplan has been working to prepare for the end of its agreement with Air Canada. The airline served notice last year that it does not plan to renew its partnership when the current contract ends in 2020.
So Aeroplan has now announced a partnership with online giant Amazon, that will offer members rewards for everyday shopping with the world’s largest retailer. With Amazon Aeroplan will now have the four biggest online retailers in Canada in Amazon, Apple, EBay and Costco.
Members who visit Amazon.ca through the Aeroplan website will be able to earn at least one Aeroplan mile for every $1 dollar spent. Members with silver and black status will earn up to twice the miles and those with diamond status will receive up to triple the miles per transaction.
Those using Aeroplan-affiliated credit cards will earn miles twice on purchases from Amazon.ca. Aeroplan members will be able to earn points on most of their purchases on Amazon.ca beginning April 24. This new deal with Amazon is just what Aeroplan and its members needed to move on effectively from their old relationship with Air Canada.
