Aeroplan Miles Points for Sale -- only 1.5 cents per mile

I have aeroplan miles that you can use to book your flights ranging from 45,000 up to 90,000 miles.

You provide your flight date and names and I WILL book YOUR tickets for you.

We can meet in person in downtown Toronto (Bay/College) during office hours Monday to Friday and book it in person after I get the payment.

Alternatively, you can pay via interac email transfer after you confirm my identity and gain my trust and I can book it for your remotely.

$0.016 cents / miles. Price is firm. Lowballs will be ignored.



Notes:

To find out how much its going to cost you:

First go to aeroplan.ca flight section. Select the time and date you want to fly. It will tell you how much aeroplan miles you need to spend plus any taxes on top of that.

I will buy the ticket in your name and you pay me whatever amount of aeroplan miles plus the tax.

Usually, it is worth buying in business class or higher or in popular season when flight tickets are expensive.

Who pay the fee related to getting a AP ticket?
YYC to YYZ round trip is about $160 fee + 25,000 AP miles = $160 + $375 = $535 = same as buying from AC and earn AP miles.
Have too many phones... This is how I limit my monthly phone payment.
Koodo $30 plan, PM $38 5GB plan, PM $8 plan to replace Speakout,
Zoomer loyalty family plan for 4 lines $117/6GB, $0 FPL home phone

I think it's standard that the buyer/payor pays all associate fees. I'm not running a charity lol.
Then,1.5 cents/AP mile is not cheaper than buying ticket with cash.

It depends. Of course for those who cannot purchase my aeroplan miles like yourself, you are definitely doing something wrong and don't understand how to maximize the redemptions.

I bought three tickets for December that would cost $2,100 (same airline) and only used 90k + $90 so that's 2.2 cents/mile right there.

I looked up kijiji and everyone is asking 2 cents per mile but I know the previous going rate was 1.6 cents but what's another 1 cent discount to a good buyer?

I don't mind not selling the aeroplan miles. I can always use it. Always better to post just in case someone is interested.

This is not a desperation BST sale thread so please don't derail it.

Haha I actually found it hilarious that they cherry picked 1 single flight out of thousands of possible flight/seat combinations to prove why 1.5 cents isn't cheaper than buying flights outright Face With Tears Of Joy of course it won't be cheaper in every case but in some cases it can be substantially cheaper. I know people that fly First/Business Class to Tokyo, which can cost up to $15,000 for about 150,000-175,000 points which can be up to 10 cents per AP. Of course this is at the other extreme. The notion of suggesting the seller should pay the taxes is even more hilarious Face With Tears Of Joy

Sorry don't mean to derail your thread, I just couldn't help but laugh.

^ Thanks, all good points but there will always be lowballers and tire kickers. I checked kijiji and rfd and most are selling at 2 cents lol so 1.5 cents is extremely generous. If there is no aeroplan devaluation lol, I might just keep them but who knows what will happen middle of next year.

I'm not desperate to sell so I told the other guy off.

Are you SE with Air Canada alanbrenton? Do you have access to Priority Rewards or are you just a credit card churner?

FYI for those curious about whether this is a good deal or not. This would be a good deal in the following cases:
-business class to west coast (LA, San Fran or Vancouver) in lie-flat business class on Air Canada (taxes in North America travel aren't bad). For ex, a business class seat can sometimes cost $2500 round-trip to Los Angeles. Using 50000 Aeroplan points + $250 taxes is a better deal
-business class to Asia through using some airline that doesn't have high fees (Swiss, Turkish Airlines, United, etc.)

In most other cases (economy, flying to Europe, flying short-haul [NYC, Boston, Montreal,..], etc.), you're always better off paying cash than using Aeroplan.

actually best rule would be to take Star Alliance partners with little to no surcharges (United, Eva, and a few others).

Any US trips pretty decent too.

I just put up an ad but if unsold, will just use them to Asia Pacific or to visit family in California.

I believe AC SE members get waived YQ on AC flights which could be a few hundreds in savings. Plus additional seat availability which could be helpful to some.

I see, lol. Thanks for explaining. Now, why would someone pass on the savings and sell at 1.5 cents when most are selling at 2 cents is beyond me. :)

I already sold 155k on kijiji. Not in a rush to sell the rest in two accounts. If it comes, it comes.
