Aeroplan is running a discount on their travel/car/gas gift cards right now for miles redemption - this is good for people who don't travel enough to redeem their points for big flights.

Redeeming for gift cards is not worth it. The gas gift card for example you're getting less than 1 CPP. For AC GC you could get 3 round trips in NA. Might as well keep them in your aeroplan account when you do travel.

Anyone knows what reward program will Air Canada use in 2020?

Not all that bad, but there are sites out there that buy 100,000 miles for cash at rates like 1.2 cents per point or more. Air Canada would be 1.176 cents per point.

What site? I would like to see how much I will get. Using the miles on AirCanada always ends up with more taxes than the fare. I never found a deal with taxes, that was cheaper than buying the tickets directly with AirCanada. If I get the $1000 gift card, I could use it to buy the fare directly from AirCanada.

Then they bought Aeroplan from Aimia.

Can you use the gift cards on tickets, or just merchandise?
