It’s been a year since Aeroplan and Starbucks Rewards teamed up. More details about their partnership here. Now their partnership is expanding further with the ability for Aeroplan members to directly convert Aeroplan points to Starbucks Stars.
How it works
Aeroplan Points can be converted to Starbucks Stars directly in an Aeroplan member’s account dashboard on web or in the Air Canada mobile app once accounts are linked.
Aeroplan points can be redeemed at a rate of 1,000 points for 200 Starbucks Rewards Stars, up to a maximum of 10,000 Aeroplan points in one transaction.
Is it worth it?
Let’s break down the math a bit. I value 1 Aeroplan point at least 1.5 cents a piece, so 1,000 Aeroplan points is worth $15. That means 200 Star points should be worth around that amount.
Below is what Star points can be redeem for:
I’m not quite sure 200 Star points is worth $15, but I’m glad to see another option for members to redeem Aeroplan points with. At the very least, it gives more options. I do hope to see some transfer bonuses to Stars every now and then to make the transfer more worthwhile.
