Are you interested in earning more Aeroplan bonus points? I keep this article updated with the most current Aeroplan promotions, including eStore bonus point multipliers, points purchase discounts, and lucky finds with discounts on Air Canada flight redemptions for business class (it’s possible to redeem one-way long-haul business fares for under 100k Aeroplan points).
Aeroplan eStore Black Friday Promotion: 10x Points
With the US Thanksgiving just around the corner, Air Canada has sent out an email for the Aeroplan Black Friday Promotion if you have an Aeroplan credit card. The promotion runs from Thursday, November 23, to Monday, November 27.
I currently have the AMEX Aeroplan Card. The offer is 10x Aeroplan bonus points for every dollar spent and charged to your Aeroplan credit card up to 25,000 points.
Below, you can see the email Air Canada sent to AMEX Aeroplan Card holders.
Eligible Aeroplan Credit Cards for 10x Black Friday Promotion: AMEX Aeroplan Card, AMEX Aeroplan Reserve Card, AMEX Aeroplan Business Reserve Card, CIBC Aeroplan Visa Card, CIBC Aeroplan Visa Card for Students, CIBC Aeroplan Visa Infinite Card, CIBC Aeroplan Visa Infinite Privilege Card, CIBC Aeroplan Visa Business Card, CIBC Aeroplan Visa Business Plus Card, TD Aeroplan Visa Platinum Card, TD Aeroplan Visa Infinite Card, TD Aeroplan Visa Infinite Privilege Card, TD Aeroplan Visa Business Card
From my understanding, you can stack these points with other offers from the Aeroplan eStore during Black Friday. According to Air Canada, they state: “Stack these points and stay tuned for more amazing Black Friday offers from the Aeroplan eStore.”

The Best Aeroplan eStore Promotions
Here are a few popular Aeroplan promotions on the eStore website that were emailed to me or I just found by browsing.
Aeroplan Amazon eStore Promotion
Normal Rate: 1 point per $1 spent on most items
Notable Exclusions: baby and nursery, cell phones and accessories, computers, tablets, and more

Aeroplan Apple eStore Promotion
Normal Rate: 1 point per $1 spent on most items, but the latest models are exempted
Notable Exclusions: MacBook Pro 14” and 16”, the new iMac 24”, iPhone 15 Pro, iPhone 15 models, Apple Watch Series 9, Apple Watch Ultra 2, Apple Vision Pro, Apple Pro Display XDR
Unfortunately, earning Aeroplan Points is not so easy when buying new Apple products. Aeroplan or Apple tend to exclude the high-ticket items from earning points.
For example, I need to buy a new MacBook Pro 16″ end of this year for work, and I can’t earn points on this. Refurbished Apple products are also exempt from earning Aeroplan Points and bonus points.
Current Aeroplan Apple eStore Promo Rate: none
Apple does have its own promotion starting November 24, 2023, where you can earn up to a $280 Apple gift card on eligible products.
Aeroplan Lululemon eStore Promotion
Normal Rate: 1 point per $1 spent on most items
Notable Exclusions: any use of coupons or corporate codes will void the Aeroplan Points
Current Aeroplan Lulelemon eStore Promo Rate: 4 points per $1 spent
Aeroplan Starbucks Promotion
The Aeroplan partnership with Starbucks is one of the easier ways to earn Aeroplan Points, even if it’s a little at a time.
However, Starbucks is expensive for most Canadians (relative to an individual’s overall purchasing power, paid time off of work, etc.) — so tread lightly. It’s more economical to buy your coffee and pastries from Tim Hortons or prepare them yourself at home. The money saved will have a higher return on investment than over-splurging at Starbucks.
But yeah, those bonus Aeroplan Points are tempting.
Here are the current Aeroplan promotions with Starbucks:
Link your Aeroplan and Starbucks accounts to start earning. Make a Starbucks purchase within 7 days of linking, and you’ll earn 500 bonus Aeroplan Points.
Link a TD Aeroplan Card or another eligible TD card to your Starbucks app and earn 50% more Starbucks Stars. Plus, earn 200 bonus Stars by making a purchase within 7 days of linking.
Earn 100 Aeroplan Points every time you top up $75 or more to your Starbucks app (25 points for every $50 to $74.99 loaded).
Aeroplan Points Purchase Promotion
If you’re looking to buy Aeroplan Points with a bonus, right now may be the best time to purchase.
From November 13 to 29, you’ll receive at least a 100% match bonus, up to 125%. From research, many Aeroplan members, including myself, have received the 125% Aeroplan bonus. This is the cheapest you can buy Aeroplan points. Maybe they’ll have a better promotion for the holiday season.
You’ll have to log in and register to receive the promotion.
One thing to note is to get the 100% to 125% Aeroplan bonus points, you need to buy at least 100,000 Aeroplan Points, which costs a whopping $3,500 in Canadian dollars. Not a promotion for budget travelers.

Along with the above Aeroplan bonus points purchase, you can opt-in to win from a pool of 50 million Aeroplan Points if you purchase a round-trip flight or Air Canada Vacations package. You’re guaranteed to win at least 1,000 points. You’ll have to book by November 26 and travel between November 27, 2023, and June 30, 2024, to be eligible for this offer.
