Why Aeroplan’s “Pay with Miles” is a Terrible Joke

Aeroplan has recently implemented the ability for customers to pay their taxes and fees on a flight award using Aeroplan points. You can, therefore, get an award entirely using points with a $0 co-pay. Sounds great, right? Except for two things: (1) the value is absolutely horrible, and; (2) there may be possible tax implications.
