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.
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.
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.
