A look at how the current TD Aeroplan Visa Infinite Card sign up offer of up to 30,000 miles can provide huge value!
Back in February TD launched one of the richest offers yet for the TD Aeroplan Visa Infinite Card. The offer provides an awesome welcome bonus of up to 30,000 Aeroplan Miles and a first year annual fee rebate for the primary card. The 30,000 Aeroplan Miles welcome bonus is split as 15,000 miles upon your first purchase and another 15,000 miles when you spend $1,000 on the card within the first 90 days of opening your account. For most people this shouldn’t be too hard as that will equate to $333.33 in spending per month.no fee etc. This offer ends on June 2, 2019The questions is after you get the card and receive the miles, how can you get really good value from them?To start, here is a broad example of what 30,000 Aeroplan Miles can get you:2 round trip economy class short haul flights in Canada & Continental USA1 round trip or 2 one way economy class long haul flights in Canada & Continental USA 1 one way economy class ticket from Canada to Hawaii, Mexico, Caribbean, Central America, South America or Europe1 round trip business class short haul flight in Canada & Continental USA1 one way business class long haul flights in Canada & Continental USA, or to Mexico, Caribbean or Central AmericaThat’s great but what is the value of those 30,000 miles? With so many great welcome offers available right now on a variety of travel rewards credit card why would I want to pick the TD Aeroplan Visa Infinite Card over others? You would want to because this card has the ability to get value from as little as $300 to well over $1,000 just from the points – not additional benefits like we see added into ‘value’ propositions from other cards…
Here is the latest news on Air Canada’s takeover of Aeroplan. It is dated May 1 but it is already up on the Aeroplan website:Back in January, we shared the news that Air Canada had completed its acquisition of Aeroplan, delivering on our promise to keep your Aeroplan Miles safe, and bringing us a big step closer to launching a more rewarding loyalty program for our customers. Building a more rewarding Aeroplan program that provides unbeatable value for members remains our first priority. This starts now, with more value for your Aeroplan Miles. Since the acquisition, and compared to last year, we’ve already started making improvements to Aeroplan: • Go where you want – for fewer Miles. We’ve introduced exclusive Market Fare Flight Reward promotions to our most popular destinations. For example, Florida, certain destinations in Southwest U.S., and Hawaii are all on sale right now. Keep an eye out for many more promotions like this one. • A better deal on Market Fare Flight Rewards…
Air Canada has released a new bonus Aeroplan miles promotion for select flights in their network. This one is a little confusing, it states for direct flights but it doesn’t mention to/from what other cities so we will assume the bonus will be earned for any direct flights to the cities listed below as they do state ‘Destinations’ on their page for this promotion. Not sure if it works the other direction as well, ie originating from the cities below, my guess is not as why would they bonus every flight out of Vancouver for example. As is usual, the terms with these promos are not the greatest, only new bookings made after April 29 count and only the first Aeroplan member on a reservation will receive the bonus miles. You must register and book by May 13 for travel until Aug 30, 19.AsiaShanghai, China (PVG)Tokyo-Haneda, Japan (HND)Tokyo-Narita, Japan (NRT)CanadaVancouver, Canada (YVR)St. John’s, Newfoundland (YYT)EuropeLondon, UK (LHR)Rome, Italy (FCO)Lisbon, Portugal (LIS)Budapest, Hungary (BUD)Sun destinationsMexico City, Mexico (MEX)St…
