Aeroplan, Starbucks launch joint rewards partnership

MONTREAL — Aeroplan and Starbucks have announced a new first-of-its-kind partnership that allows Aeroplan members to “double-dip” and earn points with both brands across Canada.

Starting today, March 8, members can link their Aeroplan account to a Starbucks Rewards account and earn both Aeroplan points and Starbucks Starts at participating Starbucks locations throughout the country. Linking the accounts takes less than a minute and can be done at

Aeroplan launched its fully transformed loyalty program last November with new features that include no cash surcharges on Air Canada flight rewards booked with points, and Aeroplan Family Sharing that allows family members to pool points together.

The revamp, said Mark Nasr, Senior Vice President, Products, Marketing and e-Commerce, Air Canada, was done with the feedback and ideas of over 36,000 people.

“Consistently across this group, members told us that they wanted more opportunities to earn and redeem points in their everyday lives at their favourite brands. We’re proud to launch this first-of-its-kind partnership with Starbucks, a globally respected brand offering the best-in-class experience for all its customers.”


Aeroplan members can start earning points for the following Starbucks Rewards activities:

  • Earn 75 Aeroplan points each time they load or reload $40 up to $74.99 to their Starbucks Card
  • Earn 150 Aeroplan points each time they load or reload $75 or more to their Starbucks Card
  • Those not yet a Starbucks Rewards member will earn a one-time bonus of 400 Aeroplan points when they create a new Starbucks Rewards account, link it to their Aeroplan account and make their first purchase using the Starbucks app within one month of creating the account


To celebrate the launch, members can earn more Aeroplan points for the following limited-time bonus Starbucks Rewards activities:

  • Until June 6, 2021, earn 25 Aeroplan points when making four or more qualifying transactions in a week
  • Earn 50 Aeroplan points every time they redeem at least 150 Stars two times or more in one calendar month until May 31, 2021


In addition, linked members can purchase Starbucks Cards for a discounted number of points, and redeem as little as 1,000 Aeroplan points for a $10 Starbucks Card at the Aeroplan eStore.

Until Nov. 7, 2021, members who use their TD Aeroplan Visa card earn 50% more Aeroplan points for every $1 spent on eligible credit card purchases at participating Starbucks locations. Click here for more details.

In addition to launching this new partnership with Starbucks, and other marquee brands yet to be announced, Aeroplan will be introducing a series of ‘Aeroplan Ahead’ offers throughout 2021. These time-limited offers will give members special earning opportunities on the ground and at home, setting them up for future travel when it’s safe to do so.
