New 35,000 RBC Rewards point welcome bonus on the RBC Avion Visa Infinite Business Card

 Back in April RBC revealed new 35,000 bonus point welcome offers on their consumer Avion cards, namely the  RBC Avion Visa Infinite Card as well as the RBC Avion Visa Platinum Card and the RBC Avion Visa Infinite Privilege. Noticeably absent at the time was no increased bonus for the business version of the card. That’s changed now as the RBC Avion Visa Infinite Business Card is also now offering a 35,000 RBC Rewards Points welcome bonus. You simply have to be approved for the card and
the bonus is yours.

Here is what the 35,000 points will get you:

  • One economy class flight anywhere in Canada or the U.S. (Hawaii and
    Alaska excluded) or two economy class flights to a neighbouring province
    or state when redeeming via the RBC Avion Air Travel Redemption
    schedule. Taxes and fees are not included but you can redeem points
    towards them at 100 points to $1 rate or just pay for them with your
    credit card
  • $350 credit towards any other travel booked via RBC Rewards (100 points = $1)
  • Convert the 35,000 points to WestJet Rewards at a 100 to 1 ratio.
    This means the offer provides 350 WestJet dollars. Several times per
    year RBC also offers a bonus when you transfer to WestJet. That bonus
    tends to be 10% so these 35,000 points could be converted to 385 WestJet
    dollars or more if the bonus is higher
  • Convert the 35,000 points to British Airways Executive Club at a 1:1
    ratio. 35,000 Avios will get you an economy class flight between
    Toronto and Dublin (as little as 26,000 Avios required) or a whole slew
    of other flight options. RBC also offers transfer bonuses several times
    per year and those
    range from 30% to 50% meaning you could potentially have 52,500 Avios. 
  • You can also convert to Cathay Pacific Asia Miles at a 1:1 ratio or American AAdvantage Miles at 1:0.7 ratio

you visit our site often or get our blog posts via a feed you would
have just seen us post an update to the Toronto-Dublin flight option in How to score flights to Ireland for as little as $120 plus taxes and fees and here’s an excerpt from that post on how this welcome bonus on the RBC Avion cards achieves that:

Only 26,000 Avios for this round-trip – ignore the taxes and fees as you’ll pay less when booking over the phone with BA

RBC Avion Visa Infinite Business – Get 35,000 Welcome Points upon Approval when you apply by February 28, 2022 Those 35,000 points which are awarded right away can be converted
1:1 to British Airways so you would come out with one round trip flight
in Economy Class and have points left over. The card costs $175 so
you essentially get that one flight for $175 plus taxes and fees. Out of
all the cards the RBC Avion card provides the fastest route to getting
one ticket since the bonus is awarded upon approval.

This is a pretty good offer considering there is no spending required
at all other than paying your $175 annual fee.
