How to earn Priority Reward vouchers

Each Priority Reward voucher is earned based on Status Qualifying Dollars (SQD), and your Elite Status at the time you reach each SQD level. Vouchers must be used to book a flight within one year from the date you earn them, or they will expire.

Earn a voucher when you cross the 4,000, 7,000, 10,000 and 15,000 SQD thresholds, and for every 5,000 SQD earned above 15,000 SQD – up to a maximum of 50,000 SQD.

More information

Beginning January 1, 2021, all Elite Status Members, including Aeroplan 25K Members, will begin to earn new Priority Reward vouchers as they reach Status Qualifying Dollar thresholds. Members who hold 35K Status or higher will have received a flat amount of Priority Reward vouchers for the remainder of 2020. The number we have deposited will be the greater of:

  • A flat amount of vouchers, as outlined below:

  • The number of vouchers you would earn through our Priority Rewards thresholds, based on the 2020 Status Qualifying Dollars earned through November 8. In light of the impact of COVID-19, as a bonus, we’ll double your Status Qualifying Dollars when determining your maximum threshold.

In January 2021, we’ll double-check your year-end 2020 Status Qualifying Dollar balance, and deposit any additional Priority Reward vouchers in line with your total balance, based on the policy above. 

For example, if an Aeroplan 50K Member has 4,000 SQD on November 8, we will deposit 2 Priority Reward vouchers into their account. Should the same member end 2020 with 5,250 SQD, we’ll give them an additional Priority Reward voucher in January 2021, as they will have crossed the 10,000 SQD Priority Rewards threshold (based on the bonus, double SQD amount).

Terms and Conditions

Priority Reward vouchers entitle Aeroplan Elite Status Members to discount the base fare in points of an eligible flight reward by 50%. (Taxes, fees, charges and, where applicable, the partner booking fee are excluded.) Vouchers will be deposited within one week of reaching a Status Qualifying Dollar threshold and are valid for 12 months from the date of issuance.

Priority Rewards can be applied for travel in certain geographic zones, and for certain cabins.

  • Canada / US – Economy vouchers apply for travel wholly within Canada and the United States (including Hawaii) in Economy Class.
  • North America – Premium Economy vouchers apply for travel wholly within North America (including Mexico, the Caribbean, Central America and Hawaii) in Economy or Premium Economy classes.
  • Worldwide – Premium Economy vouchers apply for travel worldwide, in Economy or Premium Economy classes.
  • Worldwide – Business vouchers apply for travel worldwide, in Economy, Premium Economy or Business classes.

The Priority Reward voucher must be redeemed at time of Flight Reward reservation, and if multiple vouchers of the same type are available for the Aeroplan number, the voucher with the most imminent expiration date will be used first automatically. Reservations must be made before the voucher expiry date; travel may occur after the pass expiry date subject to flight schedule availability at the time of reservation. One voucher is required for each passenger on the reservation.

The voucher may only be used as described, cannot be transferred, and has no monetary or exchange value.

Other policies apply to the usage of Priority Reward vouchers when booking Aeroplan flight rewards.
