The Aeroplan music store turns Miles into Music

A Canadian loyalty industry first; Aeroplan, Hip Digital Media and

Michael Bublé are ready to entertain members

MONTREAL, Sept. 5 /CNW Telbec/ - Aeroplan (TSX: AER.UN), Canada's premier

loyalty marketing program, today announced an innovative new reward, the

AEROPLAN MUSIC STORE, and Aeroplan's Fly Away with Michael Bublé contest.

In partnership with Hip Digital Media, a full-service digital media

agency, Aeroplan has created a custom branded site,

http://www.aeroplanmusicstore.com , where members can create accounts and download

music by redeeming 6,000 Aeroplan Miles for a 50-song Music Code. The AEROPLAN

MUSIC STORE allows members to participate in the increasingly popular world of

online digital music.

Aeroplan has launched the Fly Away with Michael Bublé contest to

celebrate this exciting addition to its growing list of non-flight rewards.

From September 10 - October 21, one lucky Aeroplan member who redeems their

miles for a code to the AEROPLAN MUSIC STORE will be selected to fly to London

with a guest to see Canada's own Michael Bublé at Wembley Arena. After the

concert, the winner and guest will head backstage to meet Bublé. For contest

details, visit http://www.aeroplan.com/musicstorecontest .

"The AEROPLAN MUSIC STORE is exciting for Aeroplan as it represents our

first step into the world of online digital music," said Craig Landry, Vice

President, Member Products and Services, Aeroplan. "The innovative ability to

turn Miles into Music helps Aeroplan deliver on our commitment to uniquely

expand our portfolio of rewards to meet the diverse interests of our members."

Aeroplan has been steadily working to diversify its non-flight rewards

for members. In 2006, non-flight rewards represented 16 per cent of total

rewards issued.

Hip Digital Media has provided over 1 million licensed songs for the

AEROPLAN MUSIC STORE from all four major record labels, independent labels and

music aggregators such as The Orchard. The store's content is available in WMA

(Windows Media Audio) and MP3 (MPEG Audio Layer-3); each song shows either a

WMA or MP3 graphic next to it for easy identification. Members can download

individual tracks or entire albums.

"Hip Digital Media is honoured to partner with Aeroplan. Given our

strength in building music properties, we understand the need for companies to

deliver custom branded programs to retain and build their membership base,"

says Peter Diemer, Executive Vice President, Strategy & Development, Hip

Digital Media. "The strength of the Aeroplan brand makes the AEROPLAN MUSIC

STORE an excellent place to showcase our distribution and marketing services."

The 2007 Digital Music Report, by the International Federation of the

Phonographic Industry (IFPI), reveals single track downloads totalled

approximately 795 million in 2006, an 89 per cent increase from 2005. The

IFPI's report also suggests consumers are turning to digital music downloads

because they offer 24-hour shopping and unlimited shelf space; consumers can

get what they want, exactly when they want it.

Hey music man..we have become accustomed to those cranky outbursts as we think he doesn't drink his first cup of coffee b/f posting these diatribes.

Nothing serious intended. And it is only an IBB where we try not an discriminate or moderate.

Thanks for the insight Parnel. Not sure if I will stay around or not. Bye.

But then you would be worrying about the cranky man behind the curtain.

We told you not to do that!
