Aeroplan eStore Promotion: Up to 7x Points for Valentine’s Day!

 

Aeroplan points are among the most easily accessible points programs in Canada, due to the wide range of bonuses and promotions offered by the program. 

In addition to credit card welcome bonuses and transferring points from bank and hotel partners, the Aeroplan eStore is one of many methods available to earn Aeroplan points, especially during one of the frequent eStore bonus events. 

Valentine’s Day: Up to 7x Points on the Aeroplan eStore

When making purchases through the Aeroplan eStore, the standard earning rate is 1 Aeroplan point per dollar spent before taxes and shipping.

With the latest eStore promotion for Valentine’s Day, Aeroplan members can earn up to 7 Aeroplan points per dollar spent at select retailers between February 1 and February 14, 2023.

The following retailers are offering the full elevated return of 7x Aeroplan points (or in some cases, even higher):

  • Ancestry.ca (10x points)
  • Aveda
  • Clearly
  • Columbia
  • Décathlon
  • Dyson
  • fuboTV (10x points)
  • Lenovo
  • Lululemon
  • Michael Kors
  • Noom (10x points)
  • NordVPN (10x points)
  • Persona (10x points)
  • The Body Shop
  • Viator
  • WeCook (10x points)
  • Yves Rocher

Meanwhile, other retailers are offering 2x–6x Aeroplan points as part of the Valentine’s Day event as well, though not quite the full 7–10x rewards. 


Note that if you have Aeroplan Elite Status, you’ll earn an extra 2x Aeroplan points on all eStore purchases as part of your elite benefits, meaning that you can earn a total of 9x Aeroplan points on Apple purchases via this promotion.

And of course, if you pay with your purchase using your Aeroplan co-branded credit card, you’ll earn even more points as a result.

If you were to pay for your eStore purchases with, say, the American Express Aeroplan Reserve Card, you could earn up to 10.25x Aeroplan points at the eStore with the Valentine’s Day promotion.

The promotion runs until February 14, 2023, so you have plenty of time to take advantage.

How to Use the Aeroplan eStore

Navigating the Aeroplan eStore is relatively simple. Visit the Aeroplan eStore website, and you’ll immediately see a banner with details on the current promotion. You can find the login button just above at the top right.

Once logged in, there are a few ways you can choose to explore the eStore. You can use the search bar to look for something you may already have in mind, or select the “For You” tab to view suggestions based on past searches and history.

You can also browse by categories or by retailers. When browsing, under the individual brand, you’ll see the current promotion labelled in red. 

Each store may have exemptions on which items are eligible to earn Aeroplan points, so be sure to read the fine print for your chosen retailer before completing your purchase.

Once a purchase is complete, the points will be automatically added to your Aeroplan account; however, keep in mind this process can take six to eight weeks.

To ensure you earn the Aeroplan points that you’re due from an eStore purchase, take note of the following:

  • You must complete your purchase during the same shopping session you start.
  • Avoid visiting other sites before completing your purchase, using a third-party browser extension, or using coupons not provided by eStore.
  • Ensure cookies are not disabled on your computer, as cookies are used to authenticate your session and allocate points to your account.

It’s definitely a good idea to keep a record of the points you expect to receive and the date of your eStore purchase to follow-up on any missing points if necessary, as the eStore historically hasn’t been perfectly reliable in terms of tracking every purchase. 

If, for some reason, your points haven’t been received within 10 weeks after your purchase was shipped, you can visit Aeroplan’s missing points page and submit a claim. The purchase will then be verified and deposited into your account if approved.

Use Aeroplan eStore Bonuses for Everyday Status Qualification

Not only do eStore promotions allow you to rack up Aeroplan points quickly, they can also go a long way toward achieving Aeroplan Elite Status via Everyday Status Qualification.

As part of the Everyday Status Qualification feature, members typically need to earn 100,000 Aeroplan points via eligible sources within the calendar year to qualify for the entry-level Aeroplan 25K status.

“Eligible sources” includes credit card spending, eStore bonuses, and flying activity, but excludes “easier” earning methods like credit card welcome bonuses and transferring points from other programs.

Consider the current eStore promotion of up to 7x Aeroplan points for Valentine’s Day. For every $1,000 you spend, you can get up to 7,000 Aeroplan points, which could push you a lot closer to the target for 2023. 

Be sure to pay with an Aeroplan co-branded credit card to maximize your earning, as that would add an extra 1 or 1.25 Aeroplan points per dollar spent, depending on your credit card.

Despite Aeroplan 25K status being the lowest tier, achieving it comes with many perks that can boost your Aeroplan and Air Canada travel experience. 

When you qualify, you’ll receive 25 eUpgrade credits that can help you upgrade to a higher class of service. Additionally, you’ll receive Maple Leaf Lounge passes, free checked bags, and preferred pricing on Air Canada award tickets.

Note that the extra 2x Aeroplan points on eStore purchases for existing Aeroplan Elite Status members doesn’t count towards Everyday Status Qualification.
