Where to go during Spring Break using Reward Points?

To the point Here are some suggestions for travelling with your Rewards Points by booking low-cost getaways during Spring Break!

Perhaps you have some points in the bank and are looking for a change of scenery during the upcoming spring break? Here are several ideas to spend your points and treat yourself.

Aeroplan credit cards can earn you more than 100,000 Aeroplan points. The TD® Aeroplan® Visa Infinite* Card is one of the best options, with first year fee waved (based on current offer).

To earn points quickly, each member of a couple can apply for a card and share Aeroplan points through family sharing.

To learn more about the Aeroplan program, see the Ultimate Guide to Aeroplan.

Similarly, Marriott Bonvoy points are easily earned with credit cards. Don’t forget to use your free night certificates too; in fact, the Marriott Bonvoy® American Express®* Card and the Marriott Bonvoy® Business American Express®* Card give not only good welcome bonuses, but also recurring benefits.
