Air Canada Aeroplan Joins Chase Ultimate Rewards + 10k Extra Bonus: Big news this week–Aeroplan is now a 1:1 instant transfer partner with Chase Ultimate Rewards. See this post for more info about Aeroplan. It’s always good to have more options! I transferred Amex Membership Rewards points to Aeroplan a few years ago to book a United flight back from New Zealand. In the future, Chase will offer an Aeroplan co-branded credit card. If you RSVP in advance, you can get an extra 10k bonus when the card launches (see this post from View From the Wing). I signed up for the waitlist to potentially get the extra 10k miles. Since my family plans to travel to Europe over the next 2 years, I need multiple miles and point sources.
