Aeroplan Extends No-Expiry Policy Through November 2025

Aeroplan Extends No-Expiry Policy Through September 2024

Recently, Aeroplan has announced another extension to its pause on points expiration. Let’s take a look at the details.

Aeroplan’s No-Expiry Policy Extended Through November 2025

In an effort to keep members engaged, many loyalty programs put a pause on their regular expiration policies as travellers changed their earning and redeeming habits during the pandemic. 

Aeroplan was no exception to this, and for the past four years, points that would have otherwise expired have remained valid indefinitely. 

This means that its regular policy, which requires you to do some sort of earning or redeeming activity within a rolling 18-month period, has been put on hold. Account holders didn’t have to do any sort of earning or redeeming to keep their points active.

Aeroplan has now announced that this non-expiry policy will be once again extended, this time through November 30, 2025. Before that date, any Aeroplan points which should have expired will not expire. 

As of November 30, 2025, the regular expiration policy resumes.

The policy is quite simple: if there has not been any eligible earning or redeeming activity in an account for 18 months, your points will expire.

To keep track of your account’s expiration date, simply log-in to your Aeroplan account, click on “My Aeroplan”, and then head over to the “Activity” tab. Your account’s expiration date, if any, will be listed on this page.

How to Prevent Aeroplan Points from Expiring

You can also get qualifying Aeroplan activity through a number of redemption options, including:

  • Making a flight booking using your Aeroplan points
  • Transferring your points to another Aeroplan member (at a cost)
  • Donating your points to a charity through Aeroplan
  • Redeeming your points for a car rental, hotel, or merchandise
  • Buying Wi-Fi on board a flight with Air Canada using your Aeroplan points
  • Using your points to bid for an upgrade

Furthermore, if you belong to a Family Sharing group and someone in the group makes a redemption, it counts as a qualifying activity for all members in the group. As long as someone in your Family Sharing group makes a booking every 18 months, everybody’s accounts will remain active.
