Sometimes a holiday seems more work than it’s worth. Between jobs, kids, er, tax season, finding the time to get away can make enemies of even the most flexible calendars. And with the finer weather upon us, a staycation becomes more and more appealing. So what to do with all those miles you racked up in your carefree youth?
We were surprised to learn recently about all the different, cool ways you could use your Aeroplan points. From tickets to the latest Cirque du Soleil show, to the Money Can’t Buy series in support of charities like War Child Canada (Drake-signed Sennheiser Headphones, anyone?), there’s a brilliant range of options for redeeming your miles. But our fave–could you guess?–has to be the spa getaways. Here are our favourite picks:
