Aeroplan eStore Boxing Day Promotions Starting Now

Aeroplan is starting Boxing Day promotions early. From now until January 2, 2018, members can earn up to 7x the miles on select retailers (including: Michael Kors, Indigo, Under Armour, iTunes, Sephora, Nike) at the Aeroplan eStore. has its own 4x miles promotion between December 18, 2017 to December 28, 2017. 


Aeroplan eStore Adds 20 new Retailers

With all the negativity surrounding Aeroplan lately, it is always nice to see some positive news. Aeroplan has a shopping portal called eStore. Shopping portals are ways to earn bonus miles and points through online purchases. For instance, if you happen to want to buy something from Michael Kors, instead of going to the physical store or online, you can go through a shopping portal like Aeroplan’s eStore. The eStore redirects you to the same Michael Kors website, when you proceed with making your purchase online, you will earn bonus Aeroplan miles for something that you were going to buy anyway. Furthermore, double dip when there are 3x or even 5x the bonus miles earning opportunities.

Top Ways to Earn Miles and Points Without Travelling and Credit Card Spending

How often have you heard someone say, I do not collect miles or points because “I do not travel enough” or “I do not spend enough on my credit card”.

There are many different ways to earn miles and points without travelling much and being a big spender. Today, I will list these alternative top 5 ways to earn miles or points.


Another Shift in the Miles and Points Industry

As we wind down a strong credit card sign up bonus year, there may be a possible shift in the industry.

Avery from DCTA recently wrote a post about How Ontario’s New Law Could Ruin it All, along with my post Ban on Expiry of Loyalty Miles and Points Has Passed in Ontario. I think it’s safe to say that we are both worried about devaluations coming down hard. Which means that we may need to change up our strategy again.

Don’t Underestimate Shopping Portals

I have been guilty lately of buying items online and completely forgetting about going through a shopping portal, so please don’t make the same mistake as I did!

Basically, major airlines, hotel chains and some credit card programs have an online shopping portal, which allows you to earn bonus miles or points with online purchases. This is a great way to accumulate extra miles and points, but more importantly, it’s a very simple way to keep your accounts active.

Review of CardSwap

We have received gift cards and given gift cards one time or another in the past. However, we do not always use all the gift cards which are given to us. CardSwap is a website which works to assist Canadians in salvaging the value out of their unused gift card in return for one that they will use, or just for direct cash back.
