Aeroplan has expanded its loyalty partnership with Uber Canada, giving Aeroplan members in Canada the opportunity to earn points on Uber Eats and Uber Rides purchases when they link their accounts.
Aeroplan members based in Canada can earn one Aeroplan point per $1 spent on eligible Uber Eats orders over $25 in Canada; one 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.) in Canada and the U.S.; and two Aeroplan points per $1 spent on Uber Premium Airport Rides in Canada and the U.S. Every time Aeroplan members take 10 Uber rides in Canada or the U.S., they’ll receive a $20 Air Canada flight credit.
This partnership is an extension to the announcement Aeroplan made earlier this year that credit cardholders would receive a free Uber Pass membership, enjoying $0 delivery fees on eligible food and grocery orders along with ride discounts and additional perks.
“We are thrilled to team up with Uber Canada to build a more rewarding program for our members,” says Scott O’Leary, Vice President, Aeroplan at Air Canada. “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.”
“Our expanded partnership is the ultimate win-win experience for Aeroplan members,” adds Lola Kassim, General Manager of Uber Eats Canada. “Every trip taken or meal ordered has the added benefit of helping members book their next adventure. This, along with perks from Uber Pass, sets a new standard for loyalty programs.”
Additionally, new Uber Eats users get an extra 1,000 Aeroplan bonus points for their first order and new Uber riders will get an extra 1,000 Aeroplan bonus points for their first ride.
All Aeroplan members can redeem their points for Uber gift cards and a three-month Uber Pass membership at the Aeroplan eStore. Linked members can redeem for both at a discounted number of points. Aeroplan credit cardholders get a free Uber Pass membership for three, six, or 12 months, depending on the card.
