Normally the award itself is enough of an incentive to part with your hard earned miles. Aeroplan has introduced a contest to sweeten the deal for members who redeem miles for select non-flight awards. Between now and March 15, 2009, Aeroplan members who redeem for awards such as a Best Western or Starwood hotel stay, car rental or Aeroplan Getaways Card will be entered into a contest to win one of 25 travel-related prizes. To view the full list of qualifying awards that will automatically enter you into the contest, go to http://www.insideflyer.com/link/?1442
Aeroplan is giving away 25 prizes to contest winners, including a $500 Best Western Travel Card, a three-night stay at a Starwood Hotel and a $1,500 CruiseShipCenter Gift Certificate.
The offer is only open to Canadian residents and you will receive one contest entry for each qualifying redemption you make during the promotional period. You can also receive a contest entry by sending a 50 — 300 word original handwritten essay about why you love any of the contest sponsors in a SASE to: Aeroplan, “Winter Travel Contest”, c/o Rewards Manager, 5100 de Maisonneuve Boulevard West, 5th floor, Montreal, Quebec, H4A 3T2.
