A Neat Little Trick to Keep Your Aeroplan Points from Expiring… for Free

If you are anything like me, you might have an Air Canada Aeroplan account, but it won’t be your main Star Alliance program – nor do you live in Canada and could therefore easily earn Aeroplan points from dozens of local partners.

This might become a problem once in awhile because Aeroplan points expire after 18 months of inactivity. A year and a half sounds like a long time, but the expiry of your miles and points can definitely sneak up on you…

So here’s a neat little trick. You might need a VPN and you will definitely need to borrow somebody’s address in Canada. (perhaps a hotel or store?)

But you can sign up for Asking Canadians. Click here to jump straight there.

Asking Canadians works the same way as E-Rewards or the other surveys for miles/points websites that you might be aware of. (a very popular recent post on InsideFlyer showed you how to earn 10,000+ Hilton points for free)

But I Hate Doing Surveys…

With Asking Canadians, it doesn’t really matter. Every time you click on an e-mail from Asking Canadians, you will earn at least 5 Aeroplan points, even if you are kicked out of the survey straight away or decline the T&Cs of the questionnaire.

You aren’t likely to survey your way to a free flight with Asking Canadians, but you will find it very easy to pick up 5 Aeroplan points from time to time, extending the life of your existing balance for another 18 months.

As a result, this is a nice little trick to know about…
