Air Canada has today launched new Travel at Home-promotion for Aeroplan members to collect award and bonus Altitude Qualifying Miles (AQM) between April 20 – May 31, 2020.
Members that earn 50,000 miles during this promotion from partner activity will receive Altitude Prestige 25K-status valid through 2021. Current Altitude members can receive one category status upgrade from this promotion up to Elite 75K.
You can access this offer on Aeroplan’s website here.
Here’s information what we received from Aeroplan:
Between today (Apr 20) and May 31st, when a member earns 50,000 Aeroplan Miles through everyday Travel at home activities (including miles earned via an Aeroplan-affiliated credit card), the member will receive Altitude Prestige 25K status valid through 2021. Members will need to register for this promotion.
Altitude members can earn towards their next status level – Between April 20 and May 31st, members earn more when they earn Aeroplan Miles, including Bonus Altitude Qualifying Miles (AQM) and the potential for a one-time Altitude status tier upgrade up to a maximum award of Elite 75K.
How can members achieve this?
As announced earlier, members can earn miles for every five Aeroplan Miles they donate to a charity fighting the COVID-19 crisis, they’ll receive one Altitude Qualifying Mile (AQM).
Convert points from hotels and credit cards – an easy way to earn towards an Altitude status would be to convert points like your Marriott Bonvoy or AMEX Membership Rewards.
Use an Aeroplan affiliated credit card or apply for one and the initial welcome bonus will count!
Shop online via the 170+ brands on the Aeroplan eStore. There will be weekly bonuses released, specifically for everyday purchases from favourite brands like Gap, Sephora, Well.ca, Indigo and more.
Each week, we’ll have new offers for members to be able to earn at home. Visit: www.aeroplan.com/travelathome to learn more about this promotion.
Here’s the email that Aeroplan members can expect to receive today:
This is an exciting opportunity for Aeroplan members to earn Altitude Qualifying Miles for non-flight activity during these difficult times.
It appears based on the email that I received from Air Canada that even conversions from American Express and Marriott Bonvoy count toward these goals that may change over the promotional period.
