Amazon.ca: Earn 3x Aeroplan Points Plus Targeted Bonus!
Until September 26, you may earn 3 Aeroplan points per 1 CAD spend when you shop on Amazon.ca categories via Air Canada’s Aeroplan eStore.
In addition, if you were targeted by an Aeroplan promotional email, you can earn a bonus of 250 points when you make a purchase of $35 CAD or more.
Deal Link and Details
Below is the direct link to the Amazon.ca page on Aeroplan eStore portal, where you will see the 3 points per Canadian dollar spend is already loaded on the page:
You will find the fine prints on that page as well. Note that you must click through on the Aeroplan eStore portal to go to Amazon.ca, otherwise your purchase will not count! Also, items must be added to your Amazon shopping cart after clicking from the Aeroplan eStore or they will not be eligible. Purchases must also be completed within 24 hours of being added to the cart.
However, you will notice that the 250 points bonus offer is not mentioned at all on that page. That is because it is only mentioned from an Aeroplan marketing email:
Therefore, the 250 bonus points is targeted, and you will only receive that if you received the email from Aeroplan. Below is the fine print as included in the email:
250 bonus Aeroplan points offer is eligible to the recipient of this email. Minimum purchase of $35 must be done while shopping Amazon.ca eligible categories via the Aeroplan eStore between September 13 to 26, 2021. This is a one time bonus. Please allow 6-8 weeks for points crediting. For questions related to this offer, please reference the following promotion code number: ES85.
Like many cashback sites, you will only receive cashback when you make a purchase in an eligible category. Below are the eligible categories for shopping from the Aeroplan eStore portal:
|Amazon Fashion Private Brands||Arts & Crafts|
|Cell Phones & Accessories||Echo Devices|
|Eero Devices||Electronic Components|
|Fire Tablets||Fire TV Devices|
|Home Audio||Home Entertainment|
|Kindle E-readers||Kitchen & Dining|
|Pet Food & Supplies||Ring Video Doorbells and Cameras|
Valuation of the Bonus Points
The math is pretty simple: Assuming you were targeted and want to take advantage of the 250 bonus points by spending the absolute minimum, or $35 CAD, on an eligible purchase, you will earn 105 points from the purchase (3 Aeroplan points / CAD spend) plus 250 points for a total of 355 Aeroplan points. Using TPG’s valuation of 0.015 USD, or 0.019 CAD per point, the 355 Aeroplan points are worth… $6.74 CAD.
My Two Cents
This is obviously not a great deal, but great deals are far and few in between for shopping on Amazon.ca. I would not go out of my way to make a purchase on Amazon.ca to take advantage of this promotion just because I was targeted for the 250 points bonus.
That said, if you were planning to make a purchase on Amazon.ca between now and September 26, then there is absolutely no reason not to click through from the Aeroplan eStore portal to earn some extra points.
