How to Use Air Canada Gift Cards on Aeroplan Redemptions

The most obvious use is to redeem directly on flights and vacation packages from AC themselves. But did you know you can now use AC gift cards on Aeroplan redemptions? While the old Aeroplan program did not offer such an option, this is now possible with the new Aeroplan, which is directly integrated with Air Canada’s system and website. Once you have picked the Aeroplan redemption you want, you will have the option to select paying with a gift card, travel voucher, or eCoupon on the payment summary box:

Is This a Good Deal?

It is important to keep in mind that you can only use up to 2 AC gift cards per purchase, and if you want to use 2 gift cards, then the total cost of your ticket purchase must be fully covered by the 2 gift cards. Otherwise, you can only use 1 gift card. Also, Air Canada does not allow combining of gift cards; so you definitely want to put your entire purchase on one gift card, and not spread your balance across multiple cards. Finally, while Air Canada gift cards do not expire, they will need to be re-issued after 5 years of inactivity, and there may be a re-issue charge.

As long as you can live with the above caveats, and you know for sure you will be making your booking directly with Air Canada or Aeroplan, be it a month or couple years away, then it is a good deal. Finally, Air Canada occasionally offers coupons (i.e. 15% off base fare), providing opportunities to stack coupon savings with discounted gift cards.
