Aeroplan for iOS Now Lets Your Store your Digital Card in Wallet

If you’re an Aeroplan points collector, you can finally add your digital card to the Wallet app on your iPhone. At the ‘Your Aeroplan Card’ screen within the app, just tap the ‘Add to Apple Wallet’ icon, to store your card digitally on iPhone for quick access:

What’s New in Version 4.2
– IPHONE: We’re still listening! Now you can add your digital Aeroplan Membership Card to Wallet so you can access it whenever you want.
– Bug fixes and performance improvements

Now that your Aeroplan card is accessible within Wallet, that means you’ll be able to get to it quickly by double tapping the Home button from the lock screen (if enabled in iOS Settings), instead of unlocking your device and launching the Aeroplan app.

Air Miles, a rival loyalty program to Aeroplan, has had Wallet support for a while now, so it’s great to finally see this one arrive.

    I was unaware until I read this that Air Miles could be added to Wallet. So that’s now taken care of…

    Another feature that falls into the “about time” category. Welcome to 2013 Aeroplan!

    Too bad both Aeroplan and AirMiles are complete and utter shit these days, neither seem to comprehend the concept of “customer loyalty” and have instead become “screw the customer” programs. Aeroplan went into the toilet once it was sold to by Air Canada to the retail consortium who run it now, and AirMiles has been a giant stinking turd ever since they screwed over the majority of their cardholders with their whole Cash/Dream rewards nonsense. I personally can’t be bothered with either of them, and make a conscious effort to avoid retailers who are affiliated with them.

    Can you add it to your wallet then delete the app?
    is that possible?

    I have with the starbucks, longos, and chapters cards.

    Yeah, it’s. been available for ages. Unfortunately, at least in my experience, very few retailers who accept Air Miles have the capability of scanning the card from your phone.
