Points.com and PayPal team up
It’s been a big week here at Points.com. As of this week, Points.com users can now redeem Aeroplan® miles, American Airlines AAdvantage Miles® and US Airways® Dividend Miles® into their PayPal accounts through our new partnership with PayPal.
At Points.com we’re always looking for new and innovative ways to help people use their points, miles and rewards. Our partnership with PayPal gives loyalty program members even more flexibility with their reward programs. Redeeming into PayPal is currently available for the Aeroplan, AAdvantage and Dividend Miles programs, but we will be rolling this feature for even more loyalty programs over the next few months.
Read on for details on exactly how you can redeem your miles into your PayPal account.
Here’s the scoop on how to redeem into your PayPal account:
To redeem your Aeroplan, AAdvantage or Dividend Miles into your PayPal account, follow these steps:
- Log in to your Points.com account and click on the “give & redeem” page.
- Choose PayPal from the list of redemption partners.
- From there, choose the program you would like to redeem from (Aeroplan, American Airlines AAdvantage or US Airways Dividend Miles are currently available). Then choose the amount you would like to redeem for, and then click “calculate”.
- Click “confirm redeem” and follow the check out process to complete your redemption into your PayPal account.
A few administrative things to note:
Depending on the partner, it could take 3-7 days for your funds to appear in your PayPal account, so be sure to plan ahead if you’re thinking of using your miles for a purchase. Also, please note that after you redeem into your PayPal account you will have 30 days to ensure the email address you entered is registered with PayPal so you can receive your money.
