Air Canada Aeroplan Buy Miles 50% Bonus November 19 – 29, 2020

Air Canada Aeroplan started to sell its miles for the first time earlier this year (quite late to the game).

The airline has today launched a “Black Friday” buy miles offer at a 50% bonus that is valid for purchases made through November 29, 2020.

You can access this offer on Air Canada’s website here.

Price at a 50% bonus:

The price of a mile (USD) under this offer is 1.53 cents each.

Conclusion

Air Canada certainly allows you to buy a significant number of miles at once (more than 500K with the bonus), and the price in USD per miles is rather reasonable.

However, you do have to keep in mind that the most recent purchase bonus was 75%, and there was a brief launch sale at a 100% bonus earlier.

Here are the terms and conditions of this sale:
