Simplify holiday shopping

(NC) -- For some, holiday shopping is an annual tradition that symbolizes the start of the seasonal festivities. Families can view the holiday shopping trip as a full day event, capped off by taking the little one to see Santa Claus. Friends can meet up and spend the day exploring the latest trends in each outlet store. As appealing as holiday shopping sounds to some, there are millions of Canadians who view seasonal shopping through a much more pessimistic lens. Having to deal with the overcrowding, aggressive patrons, entry line ups; and this is all before you even have a parking spot.

While it is suggested we do our holiday shopping months in advance, this is not practical for the average hard working Canadian whose busy schedule does not permit this kind of attentiveness. Many Canadians are left making last minute gift decisions purchasing gifts out of convenience instead of thoughtfulness and sincerity.

As selection and ease of use continues to expand, many holiday shoppers are heading online to do their holiday shopping.

“Canadians used to spend Saturdays in the mall shopping for everything from clothing to electronics and housewares but now with the explosion of ecommerce, more and more consumers are spending time shopping from the convenience of their computers and smartphones,” says Francine Sternthal, Director, Product Management at Aeroplan.

Aeroplan's eStore allows you to do all your holiday shopping online from the comfort of your own home, while earning Aeroplan Miles that can be redeemed towards that future dream trip, brand name merchandise or even exciting experiential rewards such as Grand Canyon Helicopter tours, tickets to the theatre, Spa rewards and more. The eStore helps you shop for everyone on your holiday list with more than 100 retailers including,, The Gap, Sephora, Mastermind Toys and Sears.

The holiday season can be a stressful and strenuous time for holiday shoppers. Why not reduce unnecessary stress and simplify your shopping experience by rewarding yourself while making holiday purchases?
