Our Review

Warning: The Aeroplan program will be undergoing major changes in 2020 which could impact reward value. Full details here.

The CIBC and cards are nearly identical in every way. They have slightly different insurance coverage and perks, but in terms of rewards and primary features they are twins.

You get 1 Aeroplan mile per dollar spent on most purchases and 1.5 miles per dollar spent on grocery, gas, drugstore, and Air Canada purchases.

In addition to the usual insurance coverage, concierge service, and other Visa Infinite perks - these cards offer Air Canada specific benefits. Air Canada flights booked with Aeroplan miles qualify you for priority check-in, priority boarding, and 1 free checked bag.

What's unusual about the insurance coverage is that it also applies on reward flights as well. That's a great perk if you fly on points frequently as opposed to paying for your tickets.

The main difference between them? The current sign-up bonus. Right now the has double the sign up bonus of up to 30,000 Aeroplan miles.

You'll get 15,000 points after your first purchase, and another 15,000 points after spending $1,000 in the first 3 months. If you're looking for a head start on your next vacation, the will do it.

The creditcardGenius algorithm calculates an estimated dollar value for all rewards and bonuses by using a typical point value a person can realistically achieve by redeeming their rewards in a reasonably optimized way. The "Welcome Bonus" is the dollar value obtained by combining of all one-time bonuses available to new cardholders within the first year. To qualify for the full bonus you may need to make purchases, meet minimum spending requirements, or complete special actions. Terms and conditions apply.
