Aeroplan expands partnership with Uber Canada, new points earn options

Members can earn on Uber Eats orders, Uber Airport Rides, and even receive a $20 Air Canada flight credit for every 10 Uber rides in Canada or the U.S.

After two successful partnership launches with Starbucks and LCBO in Ontario, Air Canada’s refreshed loyalty program, Aeroplan, is launching yet another agreement.

This time, the partnership is with Uber Canada, enabling members to earn Uber Eats and Uber rides.

The partnership builds upon the momentum that offers more incentive to the non-credit card, credit card-holding, and Aeroplan Elite members, further defining Aeroplan as a leader in Canadian loyalty rewards.

“We are thrilled to team up with Uber Canada to build a more rewarding program for our members,” said Scott O’Leary, Vice President, Aeroplan at Air Canada, in a statement released by the airline. “Whether you’re enjoying a night in or going out on the town, Uber and Aeroplan will bring you one step closer to your next reward.” 

Members can earn on Uber Eats orders, Uber Airport Rides, and even receive a $20 Air Canada flight credit for every 10 Uber rides in Canada or the U.S.

Highlights

  • 1 Aeroplan point per $1 spent on eligible Uber Eats orders over $25 in Canada
  • 1 Aeroplan point per $1 spent on Uber Airport Rides (all ride types including Uber X) and Premium Rides (including, UberXL, Uber Comfort, Uber Black, Uber Select etc.) Canada and the U.S.
  • 2 Aeroplan points per $1 spent on Uber Premium Airport Rides in Canada and the U.S.
  • Plus, every time members take 10 Uber rides in Canada or the U.S., they’ll receive a $20 Air Canada flight credit.

Users will need to link their Aeroplan and Uber accounts to be eligible for the earn opportunities.

Aeroplan says the existing UberEats offer through the Aeroplan eStore will terminate Dec. 9.
