10 million points in aeroplan

10 million points in aeroplan

  1. Anonymous

    Hi Ben,

    I am hoping you might be able to help me with this…

    I used to run a business in canada, and i ran about 10 million dollars on my amex which converted to 10 million points, which converted to aeroplan points.

    I have since sold my business and left the continent and now live in asia.

    Aeroplan is practically useless outside of North America and does not allow me to book nice flights so my points are sitting collecting dust mostly.

    I would love to find a way to somehow convert/use those points to fly on the nice major airlines like etihad, emirates, singapore airlines, cathay etc.

    I have not been able to find a solution so far. Do you think you could please help me?

    Welcome.

    Aeroplan is actually one of the most useful programs there is.

    No, you can not use the points for etihad, emirates, cathay. And sadly Singapore only allow their own elites to book F and most the J seats.

    That still leave you with a number of the StarAlliance airlines with good products.

    Plus a number of other reviews.

    And this is just the airlines with F

    With J also you have Austrian, Swiss, Scandinavian (If you can find a seat) and Turkish.

    If you can’t find a use for them I’m sure there are other that would love to have the “problem” of 10 million Aeroplan miles. :D:D:D:D

    Alexander, why do you feel that Aeroplan is useless outside North America?
