RBC British Airways Visa Infinite Card limited time bonus of extra Avios on purchases and lowered spend requirement for the companion voucher


Knowing that travel is curtailed RBC has revealed two new limited time offers/adjustments for those that hold their RBC British Airways Visa Infinite Card. Those are a boost to the earn rate on the card and a lowering of the spend requirement to earn the annual companion voucher.

Extra Avios
All purchases made on the RBC British Airways Visa Infinite Card until November 30 will earn 50% more Avios. That means all purchases outside of those made with British Airways will earn 1.5 Avios per dollar spent and if you do buy flights on British Airways you’ll earn 3 Avios per dollar instead of 2.

Lowered spend requirement for the Companion Voucher
Normally you have to spend $30,000 per year on the card to receive the Companion Award eVoucher but they have lowered that to $25,000 until December 30. Now if you have already earned the voucher for this year they are offering the following:

Already earned a Companion Award eVoucher? We have some great news,
you can use your Companion Award eVoucher with any British Airways fare,
combining Avios and cash. You can travel with your loved ones on any
fare, flight originating in and returning to Canada, in any cabin and at
any time.

To redeem, please call our call centre on 1-800-452-1201. Bookings
can only be made via this dedicated number to qualify for this limited
time offer. Bookings made on ba.com, through a travel agent, or at the
airport will not qualify.

These offers were a little unexpected but definitely welcome news for those of you who have the RBC British Airways Visa Infinite Card! Always good to see offers like this come about – we’ve seen on many different cards in Canada but primarily popular cards and not so much on niche cards like this one.
