I signed up for the Aeroplan card in March. It was advised since I'd be doing a lot of driving with my new job. Since then I've earned 1300 Aeroplan miles. And if you're anything like me you'll think of "miles" as a term used for measuring distance. I thought this was rather handy, and I had planned myself a quick trip to Calgary for a wedding.
Turns out "miles" is just Aeroplan slang for "points". The Aeroplan mile does not equal a real mile. The difference is not a simple Imperial/Metric difference. My 300 mile trip costs 21,000, maybe the school system has failed me or maybe Aeroplan is a fucking asshole. You decide.
