MONTREAL, July 12, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - Aeroplan today announced that as part of its new partnership with The Brick, Canada's largest retailer of furniture, appliances, mattresses and electronics, members can start earning miles when they shop online at thebrick.com.
Members will earn 1 mile for every $2 spend on all online transactions at thebrick.com. In conjunction with celebrating the launch of the partnership and The Brick's 45th anniversary, there will be monthly Bonus Miles on many categories and products commencing August 2nd with 5X Bonus Miles on all online furniture purchases and a special bonus mile offer on select specialty mattresses.
"We're excited to partner with The Brick, to give Aeroplan Members another avenue to help them reach their travel goals sooner," said Kevin O'Brien, Chief Client Officer, Aeroplan. "Members can now earn thousands of miles on important purchases when they are furnishing their homes. For example, on the purchase of a washer and dryer that sells for $2,000, a member would earn 1,000 miles, which is a great contribution towards their travel goals."
"Adding a retailer such as The Brick to our network of partners makes Aeroplan even more relevant for our members by making it easier to earn miles on their everyday spend," added O'Brien.
"We believe our customers will immediately see the value in The Brick's partnership with Aeroplan and the promotions we can offer together," said Dave Freeman, Senior Vice President, Operations for The Brick. "The Brick's online Aeroplan promotions and the monthly Bonus Mile Offers brings The Brick's customer closer to fulfilling their travel dreams; it's just another way The Brick is saving customers more."

Aeroplan's millions of members earn Aeroplan Miles with its growing network of over 75 world-class partners, representing more than 150 brands in the financial, retail, and travel sectors.
In 2015, approximately 2.6 million rewards were issued to members including 1.9 million flights on Air Canada and Star Alliance carriers which offer travel to more than 1,300 destinations worldwide. Aeroplan's two Flight Reward options, Fixed Mileage Flight Rewards and Market Fare Flight Rewards, work together so that members can get access to any seat, at any time, on all Air Canada flights.
