Spring is here and summer is around the corner, making it the perfect time to get out there and explore and enjoy yourself while at home or on vacation.

For my regular readers, you know I have been a LOYAL member of the Aeroplan program, accumulating Aeroplan Miles as I have spent dollars, for almost 20 YEARS. I am also their proud Brand Ambassador, so it gives me great excitement to share cool experiences you can now use your miles on. It used to be thought that Aeroplan Miles could only be used for flights, but no, no, no!

I’d love to show you other ways to use your Aeroplan miles.
