Rocketmiles Aeroplan Bonus is pretty sweet.

I admit I haven’t used Rocketmiles yet to book a hotel, but I will now!

There is currently an offer where you get an extra 3000 miles on your first booking with them on top of the minimum 1000 miles you get for sure.

That can be different airline miles but I use Aeroplan and Avios.

That is 4000 miles! That is great!

Why? With British Airways Avios that is just 500 miles short of a short haul one way flight – remember you can fly on American Airlines and US Airlines.

So this got me thinking of a previous post I did back in the Spring on how you can get some quick points without getting a new credit card. Full credit goes to Patrick at Rewards Canada for this chart and others like it. He is the “go to” guy when it comes to this stuff in Canada.

Book a hotel with Rocket Miles – 4000 miles(min)

Rent a car with Hertz – 1000 miles a day (max. 5000 miles)

If you don’t find the hotel you want with Rocketmiles you can still get Aeroplan miles for stays with Best Western, Fairmont, Choice Hotels, Accor, Hilton, etc. Many offer 1000 miles a stay!

Shop.ca has many bonuses going on with a 15x bonus miles on your first purchase that comes up regularly.

Getting gas at Esso – they have a promo right now that you can get up to 1000 miles on your next 6 fill-ups there!

Sign up for Direct Energy email alerts – 500 miles.

Again, see his chart, but Aeroplan has many partners out there – shopping online is big as well!

So if you are planning a getaway soon be sure to grab those extra miles that are there for the taking!
