Aeroplan is easily one of my most used travel loyalty programs. In the last year alone, I’ve been able to use my points on business class flights to Hong Kong, Tokyo, Los Angeles, Orlando, and San Francisco. I’m not just talking about myself here; I’ve shared those experiences with my family, including my wife, daughter, brother, and parents.

This July, Aeroplan is celebrating its 40th anniversary, and to commemorate the special occasion with its 8 million+ active members, it’s holding an exclusive contest where members are being given a chance to win 1 of 40 prizes of 1 million points each until July 17th.

Whether you’re new to the program or you’ve been a member for decades, here’s what you need to know about the anniversary offers available for 10 days from July 8 to 17. To register for the offers and enter the contest, visit
