    I seem to recall seeing that if you had more than half the miles needed for an AC award you would be offered the opportunity to purchase the remaining miles when you booked. If this is correct, does it work for *A partner awards? What about one-way awards? What is the price?

    From the Aeroplan website: "Your Aeroplan account with the missing Miles while booking any flight reward.
    Just begin your booking - we will calculate your missing Aeroplan Miles and show
    you your total top-up cost payable by credit card."

    I have never done this but I suspect that it is expensive.

    It's $0.03/mile and I think you need at least half of the miles as you suggested.

    yup, and at 3 cents a mile there's many cheaper avenues to acquire the miles by signing up for credit cards if you're in such a position
