CIBC Aventura: How to use Aventura Points for Cheap Travel

To the point Using Aventura Points on a CIBC Card is a great way to reduce the cost of travel. Here's how to do it.

Use your Aventura Points for Travel Expenses

Charge the Expense to the CIBC Aventura Card

First, simply make any travel expense of your choice and charge it to a CIBC Aventura Credit Card like the CIBC Aventura® Visa Infinite* Card. These expenses can come from a variety of sources:

Airlines Car rentals Travel agency Hotel
Charter bus Commuter Transportation Company Regional passenger transportation Ferries
Railway company Limousine, cab and others Regional Marine Transportation Service Cruise

Pending Transactions

Immediately after your transaction or reservation, log in to CIBC Mobile Banking.

The pending transaction will be in your account. Click on Use My Points.


Please note that the transaction must be made in Canadian dollars (CAD) to be eligible.

Also, it is mandatory that the transaction is pending to proceed with the refund with Aventura Points.

Redeeming Aventura Points

Normally, redeeming 16,000 Aventura Points with Shopping with Points reduces the credit card balance by $100.

But thanks to the Shopping with Points promotion, you only need 8,000 points for $100!

Automatically, the system shows the credit obtained and the points that will be deducted. Click on Use My Points to confirm.
