In March, TD’s Aeroplan co-brand cards moved to a points only bonus instead of points + bonus buddy pass which made a lot of individual travellers happy as for the better part of 18 months the welcome offer on this card offered less points but also a Buddy Pass. Well if you don’t travel with a companion that Buddy Pass didn’t provide any value for a solo traveller. That being said, this new offer isn’t just for solo travellers – this offer is just as great for couples, families or whomever, it’s just that the old Buddy Pass offer was more conducive for non-solo travellers.
In this post we cover the current offer on the TD® Aeroplan® Visa Infinite* Card and right now when
you apply for the card by September 5 2022 you can receive up to 50,000 Aeroplan points and have the first year annual fee rebated on the primary as well as additional cards! This offer is not
available for residents of Quebec. For Quebec residents, please click here.
approved you’ll get
10,000 points right off the bat when you make your first purchase on the
card then if you spend $1,500 on the card in the first 90 days of
having it you’ll receive an additional 20,000 points. The next 20,000 Aeroplan points come when you spend $7,500 within 12 months of Account opening so as you can see they have attached more a spend component but it’s not a huge spend requirement if you do spread it out across your first year. The last points are awarded as an anniversary bonus. All told those 50,000 points are worth no less than $750 as we value Aeroplan points at 1.5 cents each however most Aeroplan members should be able to extract more value than that especially if redeeming for business or first class flights.
Now that we’ve covered the welcome offer let’s look at what the card offers as it’s standard earn rates and benefits:
card itself earns 1.5 Aeroplan points per dollar spent with Air
Canada (including Air Canada Vacations) It also earns 1.5 Aeroplan
points for grocery and
gas station purchases and all other purchases earn 1 Aeroplan point per
dollar spent on the card. This is a good earn rate for a non Amex card
and the fact that it is a great all around Air Canada and Aeroplan
