Aeroplan or Mileage Plus?
I’m currently a member of Aeroplan and I’m thinking of switching to United’s Mileage Plus. At the moment I’ve got 7900 AQM’s with Altitude and 0 with Mileage Plus.
I have a flight in F with Swiss coming up that if I buy the PQM’s would boost me to over 30K with Mileage Plus. I have a few smaller flights that would potentially boost me over the 50K mark with United but won’t with Altitude.I’d probably get to 35K at best. Are the perks with the Gold Mileage Plus worth it? Or should I stick with Altitude for this year and switch over the following year?
Is your goal to just earn redeemable miles or are you trying to earn status?
