If you’re like me, it’s at about this time every year that you start dreaming about running away. Summer is wrapping up, winter is around the corner and the urge to find a quiet beach or lose myself in a new city become all I can think about.
As a travel writer, I’m on the go a lot. But vacations – where I shut off the reporter and just enjoy the place I’m in – are harder to come by.
When I do get away, nine times out of ten, I use my Aeroplan Miles to do it.
Aeroplan Moments Worth Millions | My Memories #withAeroplan
While I’ve been a member for years, I haven’t always been great at collecting. That changed a few years ago when I saw many of my travel loving friends using their Aeroplan Miles to access great travel deals and perks. I got serious – earning miles on everything from my exercise habits (Carrot Rewards) to my car rentals (Budget). The efforts have paid off. Those Aeroplan Miles helped me run away to Los Angeles and Quebec City this yeae, and they will get me to Montreal in a few weeks. They’ve also meant my family can join me in Chicago next week and Bermuda in the fall.
Having miles in the bank has literally meant more time with my family…even when I’m working.
Aeroplan Moments Worth Millions | Your Memories #withAeroplan
Reaching into my miles bank to pay for those trips was a good feeling, but likely not as good as it would feel to win one million miles.
Yup, Aeroplan is giving five lucky members the chance to win One Million Miles EACH! The online contest started this week and will run through September 17. Each week for five weeks there will be one lucky member who has the chance to win One Million Miles!
Wondering what One Million Miles could do for you? Let’s just say it puts my four flights in North America to shame. With a million miles you could do that trip more than ten times over. You could fly round-trip to Australia with your best friend, stay at a 5-star hotel, road trip to Uluru and still have miles left over for a rainy day!
Personally, I’d use a million miles to finally get out to some of the places I dream about ( the Greek Islands and Norway) or back to one of my favourite places in the world- Portugal – every few weeks.
