Finally, another option for all you Aeroplan members looking to burn some miles and at the same time avoid the fuel surcharge that accompanies Aeroplan’s award tickets. Recently, Aeroplan hooked up with the Future Shop to offer Aeroplan members the opportunity to burn miles on high-end electronic merchandise.
Awards can be had for as little as 10,000 miles and the list of awards from Future Shop seems to go on forever. Members can burn 18,000 miles for a Sony CFCE95R Boombox or redeem 57,000 miles and get the kids a Play Station 2 package. The list even includes every man’s dream, a Panasonic 42″ Plasma TV for 140,000 miles.
More good news: all merchandise is shipped at no additional cost, and Aeroplan members have access to customer support from both Aeroplan and Future Shop. The bad news: this is a limited-time offer, ending Dec. 24.
