Aeroplan introduces Fourth Night Free hotel offer for all Aeroplan Credit Cardholders
New offer allows all Aeroplan Credit Cardholders to enjoy a free hotel night for every four-night consecutive stay booked with points
Aeroplan is the first loyalty program to offer unlimited Fourth Night Free benefits to both Canadian and U.S. Credit Cardholders
Offer available to all Aeroplan co-brand Credit Cardholders
MONTREAL, September 13, 2023 – Starting today, an Aeroplan Credit Card gets you more out of your vacation—with a free night for every four-night consecutive stay booked with points. With the launch o its latest hotel rewards extension, Aeroplan becomes the first airline rewards loyalty program credit car to offer an unlimited Fourth Night Free offer to credit cardholders in Canada and the U.S., making it th go-to travel rewards program for more than just flights.
“When we launched HotelSavers last year, we set out to build a best-in-class hotel rewards lineup to match our best-in-class flight rewards,” said Scott O’Leary, Vice President, Loyalty and Product at Air Canada. “With this unlimited Fourth Night Free offer, our members can now stay longer with their Aeroplan points, taking their travel budgets even further.”
Aeroplan Credit Cardholders can choose from hundreds of thousands of stays for every budget from major hotel brands. With no cap or blackouts, credit cardholders can stack free nights when they book more with points, and those booking a four-night consecutive stay will only need to redeem Aeroplan points for three nights. For an eight-night consecutive stay, credit cardholders need only redeem Aeroplan points for six nights. Aeroplan’s Fourth Night Free offer calculates savings based on theaverage points cost of all four nights for maximum value.
Since the launch of HotelSavers in 2022, Aeroplan members have saved on more than 140,000 nights booked with points. Using the Fourth Night Free offer, credit cardholders can now multiply their points savings of up to 30 per cent when booking at more than 300,000 hotels, including HotelSavers properties.
Aeroplan Credit Cardholders Get More Out of Aeroplan
With points adding up for every dollar spent, the Aeroplan Credit Card is the fastest way to earn Aeroplan rewards. Having an Aeroplan Credit Card also unlocks access to exclusive benefits such as preferred pricing on Air Canada flight rewards, free first checked bags, and more, making it a must- have travel companion whether you travel a little or a lot.
The Fourth Night Free promotion applies to all eligible Aeroplan primary co-brand Cardholders and linked secondary Cardholders, including U.S. Cardholders. The offer runs between September 13, 2023, and December 31, 2024, 12:00 EST, with the ability to book stays for dates after 2024.

If you are using Aeroplan miles for anything other than award flights, you are doing something wrong unless all those miles were earned from flying.
Here, Air Canada buys the hotel space from one of the consolidators and pays cash that is likely 15% to 30% lower than the hotel’s headline price for the exact dates.
You should probably look at Aeroplan earnings from other than flight activity if you end up with millions of miles and no clear path to use them for flights. HINT: Swipe cards that allow you to earn flexible currency or use straight cashback cards.
These bookings made through Air Canada or various OTAs are not eligible for hotel loyalty program benefits such as upgrades, points, and elite qualifying nights.
