Q: For the May-September Europe portion of this promo, which flights does it apply to?
sub-Q1: Does it apply to flights to and from Europe?
A: Yes, both. Initially, AC's English-language was somewhat confusing and only mentioned flights "to" Europe, but it was later clarified that both to and from qualify.
sub-Q2: Does it apply on all flights on a booking to/from Europe?
A: No, only the flights that touch Europe will count. So, for example, on a YYC-YYZ-FCO booking, only YYZ-FCO would qualify for the bonus.

Q: If I buy a fare that earns 150% SQM, will I receive 250% or 300%?
A: You will receive 300%.

The first sweep only had the 100% bonus applied to the base rate, and not the COS bonus, so in this instance, you would receive 250%. They are now retroactively adding the COS bonus, and nearly everyone seems to have received it. The second sweep applied the 100% bonus to the total, so you would receive 300% right away.

Q: Has anyone received the 5k SQM, 5 SQS, 500 SQD from Part 1 yet?
A:
Yes, but not everyone. Those began to post June 2, and were back-dated to April 20th in Aeroplan's list of activities.

Q: Has anyone received the bonus on Europe flights after April 30?
A:
Yes, but not everyone.

Yes, they do mean primary. If Mrs. PITUK had a secondary card (she doesn't), she would not be able to count that as one of the 3 requirements. That doesn't make her ineligible, though. Not having status makes her ineligible. You don't have to have a premium card. That is just one of several options

Chase Card?

Does the Aeroplan card issued by Chase Bank in the US count as a valid credit card?

This seems stackable with the “Elite Status qualification jumpstart for 2022” as well. Both of these promos will make me SE for the first time in 20 years as I’m in Europe every month Jan-April. These promos will keep me on AC for 2022/23.

Can anyone recommend some good mileage runs to take advantage of this? Doesn't have to be just for the miles... I have some vacation time between now and the end of the promo I could weight towards trips with high SQM.

Just tried to link my Uber account with Aeroplan to take advantage of Offer A and it wouldn't let me. I guess I will have to run out and buy something at Starbucks lol.

Sorry still don't understand. I'm wondering if primary relates to a primary Aeroplan card/membership or a credit card..

There's no such thing as a secondary Aeroplan card/account.
When you get a Aeroplan branded credit card, you are the primary card holder. You may, for a reduced rate, get a secondary card for a family member on your same account. Being a holder of this secondary card, would not get credit for being a cardholder for the purposes of this promo. Only you will get that.

Apologies for the seemingly naive question, but the T & C's page is hanging, and I have handled disputes for less - but my reading assumes that ANY fare higher than "Economy Standard", including all Premium Economy and all Business Class fares, should qualify?
Cheers

Moderator note: Let's please try to keep this thread on topic to the promo and use the mileage run thread to discuss mileage runs.

While I'm sure many would think a link to an AC page would be all that is needed , I've found it helpful to have the actual original wording of a promo posted in screen shot form, as aside from tech issues, wording in the T&C can change as noted by AC.

This is the promo info available on Feb 1 2022 [within spoiler]:
