Double Double Bonus with Aurora Rewards

Canadian North’s loyalty program, Aurora Rewards, is currently offering a “Double Double Bonus” promotion for travel before September 30, 2015, which breaks down as follows:

  • Earn 2x the Aurora points
  • Earn Aeroplan Miles

Your miles will be automatically credited to your membership account when you make your booking. All fares are eligible for the bonus points with the exception of W, K, N and E.

Unfortunately, the bonus points do not count towards qualification for Aurora Concierge status.

Even though they said that it is a double double bonus, you can already earn Aeroplan Miles at the same time as Aurora Rewards points for every eligible flight you take. You just need to ensure that your Aeroplan number has been added to your Aurora Rewards account. When making your reservation, simply provide your Aeroplan number and your Aurora Rewards points will be automatically credited.

Therefore, this promotion is only really offering you bonus Aurora points, which are still good.

Even though Canadian North is a niche market, I am very glad that they have Aurora Rewards. This is especially competitive for people who work in the territories (Nunavut, Northwest Territories, Yukon) and travel around a few times or more per year.

I also haven’t been able to locate the expiry policy online, so I just gave Aurora Rewards a quick call. Turns out that the expiry policy is that your points never expire so long as you have an activity once every 24 months.
