Plan Ahead: Start by setting travel goals and determining the destinations and class of service you're interested in.

Multi-City Itineraries: Consider creating multi-city itineraries to maximize your value.

Avoid Carrier Surcharges: Be mindful of carrier surcharges, which can significantly reduce the value of your points.

Transfer Partners: Aeroplan has several transfer partners, including American Express Membership Rewards and Marriott Bonvoy.

Waitlist for Premium Cabins: If you're interested in flying in business or first class, consider adding yourself to waitlists for award seats.

Monitor Promotions: Keep an eye out for promotions and special offers that can provide extra value for your points, such as discounted award flights

Use Points for Premium Cabins: If possible, save your Aeroplan points for premium cabin redemptions, as they often provide the best value
