Free and easy miles and points are of course the very best kind, and today I got a message from someone in the Aeroplan program that right now anyone can get 250 free Aeroplan miles by sharing a very short travel story.
Keep Your Aeroplan Miles from Expiring
Not only are 250 free Aeroplan miles there for the taking, but these 250 miles will be enough activity to keep your other Aeroplan miles from expiring for an additional 12 months. For those not familiar with Aeroplan, they are the frequent flyer program for Air Canada (in the Star Alliance) and you can transfer points into their program from American Express Membership Rewards and cards like The Amex EveryDaySM Preferred Credit Card or The Platinum Card® from American Express.
We actually used Aeroplan to book round trip business class tickets on United and Turkish to Europe and back for just 90,000 miles a couple of years ago – that price is now 110,000 miles round trip, which is still pretty good. They are a program to be aware of especially since you can transfer points in from Membership Rewards, and who can complain about 250 free miles for telling a short travel story?!
