Aeroplan is trying to get its members to sign up for SMS alerts and is now offering 100 free miles for your consent to do so.
You must sign up by September 15 and you will automatically get 100 miles and a chance for another 50,000.
You can access this offer on Aeroplan’s website here.
Note it it is likely that this only works for those that try to sign up for the service in Canada.
This is a great to extend the validity of some orphan Aeroplan miles by 12 months. I was thinking of transferring couple of Starpoints from SPG, but may up doing this IF I am in Canada before middle of September.
