Feb 25 Update: $100 Statement Credit for TD Aeroplan Visa Infinite Update, SPG and Uber partner up, IHG PointBreaks now live

News, Tips & Tricks 

You may recall that back in January we detailed a $100 statement credit on the TD Aeroplan Visa Infinite Card that at first looked open to everyone but then were told it was targeted. Well now it appears that it is open to everyone! Be sure to read my post on this offer and that if you don't have the TD Aeroplan Infinite Card on how you can get it first year free with 25,000 Aeroplan Miles bonus and then get this $100 credit to boot! Thanks to Paul M for sending this us:
I contacted TD regarding the $100 statement credit offer if you spend 100 on an Air Canada flight.  They seem to indicate that it is not a targeted offer and is available to all primary card holders. See below.  The question and response is copied from the td aeroplan community website
 Question: I found this promotion on a search but it is unclear whether it is available to all TD Aeroplan Visa infinite Card holders or alternately that it is a targeted promotion to some cardholders only. Can you let me know whether all card holders are eligible for this benefit? Receive a $100 statement credit: From January 8, 2015, to April 30, 2015 Receive a $100 credit on your credit card statement when you use your TD Aeroplan Visa Infinite Card to make a minimum $100 Air Canada purchase.
SabrinaTD Moderator:  Great question, paulme. It might seem too good to be true, but it's true! When you make an Air Canada purchase of at least $100 on a single transaction with your TD Aeroplan Credit Card between January 8 and April 30, 2015, you'll be eligible to receive a $100 statement credit. You must be the primary cardholder on the account to be eligible for this offer. The credit will appear on your account statement within ten weeks after your purchase.

IHG PointBreaks are now live! There are only 2 hotels in Canada participating this time but there are about 150 other hotels Worldwide also included in this still amazing and best hotel award night redemption option. Read our post from yesterday for details.

Today's Daily Update has been brought to you by


  1. Oh may...the mayhem!

    It appears TD may have now edited the response to the $100 statement credit on their Aeroplan community website! The have now added:

    "Please keep in mind that this offer is available to select customers only. To make sure that you qualify, please call us at 1-800-983-8472 (available 7am to 12am ET)."

    Anyone have a screenshot of the original webpage, before this confusing proviso was added?

  2. I think the "select customers only" was there already but the blog's quote didn't include it. In any case, I wouldn't take TD rep's words for any promotion :) and accept that there's no $100 to me

  3. We see this too often with so many promotions when programs launch them and don't take the time to write out full terms and conditions. Or they live in an archaic world forgetting that almost anything can go viral on the internet and you need to take that into consideration when making the promotion and writing the T&Cs correctly from the onset. This TD offer and the recent Etihad Guest status match are great examples of this!
