100 Free Air Canada Aeroplan Miles

Home Hardware Canada is offering 100 free Aeroplan miles if you sign up to receive emails from them.

You just have to enter your name, phone number, email address, Aeroplan number, and Canadian postal code.

Aeroplan-1

You do have to select “Your Home Store” from a link in order to sign up, presumably so they can send you the most customized offers.

Aeroplan-2

While 100 Aeroplan miles isn’t a ton, it’s a great way to reset the expiration of your Aeroplan miles, if nothing else. Aeroplan miles expire after one year of inactivity (up until last year Aeroplan miles expired after seven years regardless of how much activity you have).

Aeroplan is a great frequent flyer program, given that they’re transfer partners with American Express Membership Rewards and Starwood Preferred Guest. They have generous stopover and routing rules, and don’t impose fuel surcharges for travel on many carriers.

  1. Lucky: Thanks for acknowledging your Canadian readers; I’m sure there are many of us.
    Even though it doesn’t match up to the huge sign-up bonuses offered by American credit cards, it’s nice to know that we Canadians are on your radar.
    (And apologies to your American and other readers — but remember that we have to plough through a tonne of stuff which relates only to Americans. Slim pickens, but at least it’s something)

  2. @ Ivan — Any activity (earning miles through flying, transferring points, partner activity, etc.) extends the validity of your miles.

    There’s not really a good reason to signup for 100 Aeroplan miles, unless:
    1) You have an active Aeroplan account & plan to fly Air Canada within the next 12 months
    2) You plan to fly Air Canada within the next 12 months, and have those miles credited to Aeroplan
    3) Have the Aeroplan Credit Card

    Reasons you should not signup for the 100 Aeroplan miles:
    1) You have Star Alliance miles with another carrier and don’t plan to fly Air Canada in the next 12 months
    2) You don’t plan to fly Air Canada within the next 12 months
    3) You plan to fly Air Canada, but plan to credit those miles to Star Alliance carrier
