Aeroplan Expands into B.C. Grocery Sector

Members in British Columbia Can Now Earn Miles at Thrifty Foods Stores

MONTREAL, Sept. 23 /CNW Telbec/ - Aeroplan announced today that it is expanding its partnership with Sobeys Inc. to now include its Thrifty Foods stores in British Columbia.

Starting today, Aeroplan Members can earn miles at more than 20 Thrifty Foods stores by joining Club Thrifty Foods and auto-converting their Club Thrifty Foods points into Aeroplan Miles. Similar to the Club Sobeys model, for every 2 Club Thrifty Foods points that members convert, they'll receive 1 Aeroplan Mile. Each week additional miles can be earned through in-store "bonus points" offers.

"It was this time last year when we began offering Aeroplan Miles at Sobeys stores in Ontario and the West and we're thrilled to mark the anniversary by expanding our partnership to now offer miles in Thrifty Foods stores in B.C.," said Craig Landry, Senior Vice President, Partnerships and Rewards. "With these new locations we're pleased to be able to offer our West Coast members another option to earn miles on everyday purchases."
