A new Aeroplan US Credit Card with Chase
Air Canada has just announced a partnership with Chase – the largest co-brand credit card issuer – to offer an Aeroplan credit card in the United States.
The new Aeroplan Credit Card from Chase – a Mastercard – is expected to launch in late 2021. This card will probably have similar benefits to Aeroplan credit cards available in Canada.
In the past, there was an Aeroplan credit card in the U.S. offered by TD Bank and Visa, but it did not come with significant benefits, unlike the one we have in Canada.
Between the U.S. and Canada, Air Canada will offer credit cards with all three networks: American Express, Mastercard and Visa!
Aeroplan, new Chase Ultimate Rewards transfer partner
Also, Aeroplan will become a transfer partner of Chase Ultimate Rewards program at the end of 2021.
The Chase Ultimate Rewards program currently has 13 partners:
- Aer Lingus AerClub
- Air France-KLM Flying Blue
- British Airways Executive Club
- Emirates Skywards
- Iberia Plus
- JetBlue TrueBlue
- Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer
- Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards
- United MileagePlus
- Virgin Atlantic Flying Club
- IHG Rewards Club
- Marriott Bonvoy
- World of Hyatt
While we are well endowed in Canada with Aeroplan credit cards, it is good news for the vitality of the program to see the arrival of Chase as an issuer in the United States. And having Aeroplan as a transfer partner for Chase Ultimate Rewards.
