Aeroplan has been going non stop with promotions designed to keep you loyal to Air Canada during these crazy times. And just yesterday, they announce that Aeroplan miles won’t expire for 18 months from last activity. Here’s a new offer:

Earn up to 150% on Paid Fares

It’s pretty much as simple as shown below. If you are flying a paid fare, you can earn 100% to 150% bonus miles.

If you are in a cash crunch, you should avoid travel rewards credit cards until you are caught up. Here are our favorite credit cards for Intro 0% APR offers and for balance transfer offers

I find it more exciting to get 40% off a business class award, though:

The only bummers here are that it applies only to redemptions on Air Canada metal and you have to fly by September 30th. But if you were going to, for example, fly YUL-LON, it would cost you 55,000 miles each way in business class. On a round trip, you’d pay 110,000 miles and get 44,000 rebated later.

But about that “Air Canada” requirement: Air Canada charges massive YQ (a term that just means a surcharge for the sake of a surcharge that is part of the fare but separated from the fare so it doesn’t show as part of the fare – but you have to pay it nonetheless). On this round trip, you’d be on the hook for a bit over $1,000 CAD in YQ.

EXCEPTION: If you are Super Elite 100K (top tier Altitude status), you won’t have to pay the YQ. For you, this deal is screaming.

Remember that you’ll need all the miles for the full price award in your account to redeem.

I got "in the game" in 2003 and since then I've collected literally millions and millions of frequent flyer miles and hotel points. I've flown around the world in first class seats that would cost $29,000 using frequent flyer miles and a few bucks in tax. And I've stayed in some of the finest hotels - all for free! A few years ago I realized many of my friends actually thought I was paying for these!! So I started sharing my tips. It's long been a passion, but when I hosted a session on Miles and Points at this year's South by Southwest festival, my love of the game intensified and this blog was born.
