Now through October 19, shoppers who connect to online retailers through Aeroplan’s shopping portal will earn 5x miles on all purchases.

While some mainstream shopping bonuses go as high as 10x, 5x points on all purchases is a pretty lucrative proposition, especially if you’re getting ahead on your holiday shopping.

Among the retailers you’ll find represented on Aeroplan’s shopping site are the Apple Store, Gap, LL Bean, Bose, eBay, Canon, The Body Shop, Office Depot, and even Weight Watchers.

One thing to note, when you click on a merchant, you must enter your Aeroplan membership info, and then you will be taken to the merchant’s Canada site, so if you’re in the US and plan to use this promo to rack up Aeroplan miles, you might have issues with shipping and taxes, and I’d be sure to use a credit card that doesn’t incur foreign transaction fees.

Otherwise, for the Canadian readers out there looking to earn some extra points on online purchases, this should be a great way to score some bonus miles by spending at your favorite retailers. I was excited for this to double dip on the Freedom 5x at Best Buy bonus, but sadly Best Buy is not a participating merchant.

Chase Freedom®

It's a stellar Cash Back card on its own, but when paired with the Chase Sapphire Reserve or Chase Sapphire Preferred, the Freedom's 5x Category Bonuses let you rack up Chase Ultimate Rewards Points, transferrable to partners or redeemable via the portal.
