Chase Ultimate Rewards Transfers to Aeroplan are Now Live

At long last, you can now (as announced back in December of 2020) transfer your Chase Ultimate Rewards points to the Air Canada Aeroplan program.

The points will transfer instantly (1:1) and this means that you can now transfer points to Aeroplan from American Express Membership Rewards, Chase Ultimate Rewards, Capital One Miles, and Marriott Bonvoy. That’s great because you can pool points earned from multiple programs for one award via Aeroplan.

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

When the new Aeroplan launched about a year ago, I covered the changes. They were mostly excellent changes, although many awards did go up in price (sometimes significantly) however, with that came more flexibility and, at least right now, you can freely cancel Aeroplan awards if plans change.

Aeroplan is not just an excellent way to book Star Alliance awards (best if you need a stopover which adds just 5k – as you can do better booking Star Alliance via Avianca Lifemiles, Turkish Miles&Smiles, or ANA in most cases) but also mixed awards that include travel on Etihad. Etihad is one of their best program additions allowing you to mix and match Star Alliance connections with Etihad or book Etihad alone at solid rates.

Chase Ultimate Rewards now transfers to a total of 14 transfer partners:

Aeroplan Credit Card Waitlist

Also, while the US version of the Aeroplan credit card is not yet live, Chase is offering you the ability to pre-register for when they come on the market and will offer you an extra 10,000 Aeroplan miles to do so. Of course, the card will be subject to 5/24 which will disqualify many. Join the waitlist here: aircanada.com/chase.

New to all of this? My “introduction to miles and points” book, MilesTalk: Live Your Wildest Travel Dreams Using Miles and Points is available on Amazon and at major booksellers.

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.
