Aeroplan Makes Mileage Expiration Changes
||:: Late-Breaking News
(Posted: Oct 18, 2006)
Effective Jan. 1, 2007, all Aeroplan miles will be date-stamped to expire at the end of seven years (84 months) from the month the mile is accumulated. Miles in an account with a date-stamp exceeding 84 months will automatically be deducted from the member's balance on a monthly basis. All Aeroplan miles issued prior to Jan. 1, 2007 will be date-stamped as Dec. 31, 2006, resulting in an end date of Dec. 31, 2013.
Furthermore, effective July 1, 2007, Aeroplan members must have activity in their account at least once within the 12 previous months to avoid the expiration of all miles in the account. Activity is defined as earning or spending miles.
To placate those who might not be too happy with these changes, Aeroplan is offering members whose accounts are in danger of expiring an option to extend their miles for a further seven years (with annual activity) by paying a fee of C$30 plus $0.01 per restored mile.
Many Air Canada Aeroplan members are not happy with these changes. See FlyerTalk.com to see what they?re saying.
