CIBC Aventura, Dividend & Aeroplan credit cards now offer accelerated EV Charging earn rates
Today is officially the day that CIBC Aventura, Dividend & Aeroplan cards will begin to earn accelerated earn rates for EV Charging. As reported a few weeks back CIBC announced they would add EV Charging to the same category as gas on their cards. This is great news for those who charge their vehicles at locations that are not major gas stations which offer charging facilities as well. Depending on the card you have this could range from 1% to 4% cash back, 1 to 2 Aventura points or up to 1.5 Aeroplan points. Click here to visit our CIBC card offers page to see all the details.
