Bottom Line

Aeroplan can be a very useful program for Star Alliance redemptions and the website is one of the two ways I search for Star Alliance award availability (very easy to use) so the bonus miles could be very helpful.

Don’t forget that Aeroplan is an American Express Membership Rewards transfer partner so, if you earn some bonus miles but still need a few more to hit an award target, an Amex transfer could be the answer.
