Effective today, June 17, 2020 to July 1, 2020, trips booked from July 1, 2020 to October 15, 2020, qualify for a 50% miles back promotion for Air Canada flights within Canada or to the United States.
Aeroplan has become quite aggressive with its promotional offers during the lock-down. Unfortunately, only a handful of people can take advantage of this for the moment.
Keep in mind that there is currently a border closure between the two countries until July 21, 2020.
However, this offer does run well into the fall, so there may be some options for people who have trips later in the year.
There is no doubt that this is a lucrative offer, considering 50% off a reward booking is extremely lucrative as it instantly doubles the value of your miles, which would offset most of the higher taxes and fuel charges added to Air Canada flights. So if you have a trip in mind before October 15, 2020, I would definitely consider redeeming your miles instead of paying for the trip.
The other reason I like this offer is who knows when we will be comfortable with international oversea travel. Mine as well try to use your miles now while you can, you can always rebuild your account later on!
