Deal or No Deal
The conversion bonuses themselves are solid. The question is whether Aeroplan miles are worth converting for.
Aeroplan isn’t what it used to be. In July, the award chart underwent significant modifications, resulting in higher prices for many of the more desirable award flights. And more recently, the program has begun imposing fuel surcharges on many partner awards, further eroding the value of an Aeroplan mile.
If you’re still an Aeroplan supporter, even after the negative changes, this promotion may be worthwhile. These days, that’s a big “if.”
