RBC has launched new offers for its 4 RBC Avion credit cards: 35,000 points with no minimum spend.
It’s not often that the Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) posts welcome offers for its credit cards directly on its site. Usually, these offers are made through different networks (newsletter, social networks, mail, etc.). And are therefore difficult to list!
But for the next few months, RBC is offering 35,000 points as a welcome bonus, with no minimum spend. However, the annual fee is retained from the first year with this new offer.
With these four credit cards part of the RBC Rewards program, you can:
- transfer points to British Airways Executive Club, Asia Miles, American AAdvantage, WestJet Rewards or Hudson’s Bay Rewards (between 0.5 and 3 cents per point)
- use points for flights via RBC’s chart (2 cents per point)
- use points for any travel purchase (1 cent per point)
- purchase gift cards or products (between 0.5 and 1 cent per point)
- pay with points for any purchase (0.58 cent per point)
The best use of RBC points is for transferring to other programs (especially during point redemption promotions like British Airways Executive Club or Asia Miles). That’s what we did in Australia (and were supposed to do in Japan).
Since there is no minimum spending requirement, you can apply for one of these cards at the same time as one of the best current offers.
Note: If you already have an RBC credit card , you are not theoretically eligible for any of these offers:
Additional cardholder(s), as well as existing RBC Avion Visa Infinite or RBC Avion Visa Platinum, Cathay Pacific Visa Platinum, British Airways Visa Infinite, RBC Rewards Visa Preferred, RBC Rewards+ Visa, RBC Avion Visa Infinite Privilege and RBC Avion Visa Infinite Privilege for Private Banking credit cardholders, applying for or transferring to an RBC Avion Visa Infinite credit card, RBC Avion Visa Infinite Privilege credit card or RBC Avion Visa Platinum credit card as of the start of the offer period on April 19, 2021, are not eligible for this offer.
