The American Express Aeroplan credit card earns Aeroplan points (AP) for all purchases made on the card:
- 2 Aeroplan points for every dollar spent on eligible Air Canada and Air Canada Vacations purchases.
- 1.5 Aeroplan points for every dollar spent on eligible dining and food delivery purchases in Canada.
- 1 Aeroplan point for every dollar spent on all other purchases.
Aeroplan points can be redeemed for flights around the world on Air Canada and any of the Star Alliance partnership airlines.
Aeroplan points can also be redeemed for hotels, car rentals, and merchandise. The redemption value, or cent per point, is very poor for these types of redemptions and as a result, they should be avoided.
