Update: If you matched Southwest Companion Pass by 9/29 you will get 75K, but for matches as of 9/30 you will only get 50K.
Here is the chart for matches as of 9/30:
US residents can match their elite status to Air Canada Aeroplan. You can match from American, Delta, Alaska, JetBlue, Southwest, or Hawaiian to Aeroplan as follows:
Unfortunately you can’t match from Star Alliance member United to fellow alliance member Air Canada.
This offer can end at any time.
Status will last through 12/31/21. If you take a round-trip flight on Air Canada by 1/15/22 then your status will be extended through 12/31/22.
Aeroplan 50K and up get Star Alliance Gold status. That allows access to United Clubs on domestic itineraries, something that United doesn’t offer to their own elite members.
Interestingly, Southwest Companion Pass will match to Aeroplan 75K, despite that status being attainable via opening and spending on credit cards!
If you match status to Air Canada, you won’t be able to do so again for 2 years.
I have United Global Services status currently, but that isn’t matchable to Air Canada. I also have American Executive Platinum status, but that only matches to Aeroplan 75K, which largely duplicates my United status benefits as I also have United lifetime club membership. Aeroplan Super Elite looks awesome with benefits like 50% off business class awards, but that’s only available for matching from American Concierge Key and Delta 360. As I have no plans to fly Air Canada by 1/15/22, I think I’ll hold off on this offer for now.
Will you take advantage of this offer?
