Air Canada’s Aeroplan program enabled buying miles back in March (read more here) and launched its first-ever sale on Thursday last week (that encountered few difficulties due to overwhelming demand).
Aeroplan sold its miles at 115% and 90% bonuses that were quickly depleted. Members can still buy them with a 65% bonus until Friday (May 15, 2020).
You can access this offer on Air Canada’s website here.
Price at 65% bonus:
The price at 65% bonus is USD is roughly 1.28 cents each.
Air Canada and Aeroplan appear to have been quite successful with this sale based on the response it received. Systems went down due to too many simultaneous website users, and Aeroplan ended up extending the 90% bonus to many that didn’t initially qualify for it (read more here).
Remember that part of these miles can count towards your Air Canada elite status per their current offer (read more here).
