  • 1.5 Aeroplan points for every dollar spent on gas, groceries, travel, and dining.
  • 1.25 Aeroplan points for every dollar spent on all other purchases.

Redeeming Rewards

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.
