Aeroplan adds three new long-term partners
The Canadian coalition loyalty programme Aeroplan has recently announced three new partnerships, involving an insurance provider, a radio station, and a small business start-up advisor.
Aeroplan first announced a partnership with ING Canada Inc., to offer Aeroplan members the chance to earn Aeroplan Miles on certain insurance products offered by ING subsidiaries. Members can earn miles this way starting in September 2006, and further details of the exact products and services will be announced closer to that date. The insurance products that will attract miles will, however, include both home and vehicle insurance policies.
Second up Next came the announcement that Aeroplan had signed a multi-year agreement with XM Canada, a national satellite radio provider, including a period of exclusivity, to enable XM Canada's subscribers to earn Aeroplan Miles.
From June 2006, Aeroplan members can participate in one of three introductory Aeroplan Miles offers, through which they earn 2,500 Aeroplan Miles for a Can$200 Delphi RoadyXT package, 3,750 Aeroplan Miles for a Can$325 Delphi SKYFi2 package, or 5,000 Aeroplan Miles for a Can$425 Delphi XM MyFi package.
In addition, a bonus of 7,500 Aeroplan Miles will be offered for those purchasing a Can$550 Pioneer Inno package (as soon as the radio is available for sale in Canada).
These radio hardware packages are available for portable listening or for home or in-car installation. The offers are based on the package selected by the member, and the signing of a minimum one-year service agreement with XM Canada.
Third up Finally, Aeroplan announced that online incorporation and corporate maintenance provider Corporation Centre has begun offering Aeroplan Miles for users of some of its internet-based start-up services for small businesses.
According to Lionel J. Perez, president for Corporation Centre. "Offering Aeroplan miles for our products and services is one further step in our evolution to help small businesses to get more value for each dollar spent. We intend to use Aeroplan miles to drive sales, reward loyal customers and attract new and first-time customers."
