Aeroplan: 2 new offers from CIBC

To the point A few months after TD, CIBC has just released 2 new offers for Aeroplan-affiliated credit cards. All that remains is for American Express to release its offers!

The offer for consumers

CIBC has just launched a new offer for the CIBC Aerogold® Visa Infinite Card for which you could obtain:

  • 15,000 Aeroplan miles after first purchase
  • 5,000 Aeroplan miles after spending $1,000 in the first 4 months
  • A $120 gift card to use on Air Canada’s website

However, the contribution remains $120/year from the first year.

The Air Canada electronic gift card is a novelty but does not allow you to pay taxes and fees with Aeroplan. It is therefore only valid for airfare purchased on Air Canada.

This offer is valid from July, 1 to October 31, 2019… which gives you time to plan a possible application
