I didn't know you could get aeroplan anywhere else.
That was how it started but now there are a number of ways of converting/collecting. Esso, Sobey's and there are a lot of restaurants in the Toronto area. I just don't have a list of them. I'll see if I can find where else you can collect.
My thoughts - I have aeroplan, air miles, southwest and delta loyalty cards. Oh yea and the Bay which can be converted to air miles. They don't cost me anything to enroll so I just collect. If I get to use them sweet, if I don't I'm not out of pocket. As of now, I have used business class air to Athens/Rome, several flights to Vancouver and Winnipeg, (although I don't find air miles are worth using anymore on my flights to Winnipeg) I have a free flight waiting to be used with Delta and the same with Avion. I'll use them sometime before 2012. Therefore I believe it's worth my while to have the loyalty cards.
