Came across coverage for this interesting Toronto-based start up that allows you to apply your loyalty points toward tuition. There are limited educational institutions signed up but congrats to the University of New Brunswick and Centennial College for being early adopters. And right now it’s only applicable to Aeroplan points, which is a big player and looking for ways to distinguish itself.
What’s most interesting is the concept that you can be a “Nice Person” and donate your points to any student. I’m sure this program will be used by parents and extends easily to other family members and friends but the concept that you could support a student that might not be within your family circle is what I find engaging.
So if you have student you want to support at one of the partner institutions and you collect Aeroplan points, you too can be a “Nice Person.”
