I know that I have been writing about Aeroplan quite frequently lately, but it does seem like they are making a big effort to increase their presence.
When I logged into my E-Rewards account today, I noticed that Aeroplan is now a transfer partner:
Granted, those are extremely weak transfer ratios, especially compared to United Airlines (MileagePlus) or American Airlines (AAdvantage) where
- $25 = 500 miles
- $50 = 1,000 miles
- $100 = 2,000 miles
For now, at least there is an option to transfer to Aeroplan and it may only really make sense to use this option if you are trying to top up for a specific upcoming reward redemption.
I have already written extensively about E-Rewards, which you can read about in its own section. Note that E-Rewards has become an invite only survey program.
