Link: Apply now for the Aeroplan® Credit Card

The Aeroplan® Credit Card currently has a fantastic welcome offer that’s worth considering, given the reasonable spending requirement, and all the great uses of Aeroplan points, including the ability to have stopovers. This was first launched in mid-August, but I wanted to post a reminder of the offer, as it’s quite good.

Current Aeroplan Credit Card welcome bonus

The Aeroplan Credit Card is offering a welcome bonus of 70,000 Aeroplan points after spending $3,000 within the first three months. Personally I value Aeroplan points at 1.5 cents each, so to me this bonus is worth $1,050.

Chase’s standard application rules apply, including the 5/24 rule. This card isn’t available to those who currently have the card or who have had the card in the past, but eligibility is otherwise independent of whether or not you have any other Chase cards.

The Aeroplan Card only launched in late 2021, and this is the highest number of points we’ve seen for a welcome offer on the card (when the card launched we saw a lucrative offer that included rewards certificates, but that came in the form of vouchers for redemptions rather than points).

Why the Aeroplan Credit Card is worth getting

The $95 annual fee Aeroplan Credit Card is one of the most well thought out co-branded airline credit cards we’ve seen. There are significant incentives for holding onto the card, and also significant incentives for spending money on the card.

Among other things, the Aeroplan Credit Card offers the following:

  • The card offers 3x Aeroplan points on dining, grocery stores, and on Air Canada spending
  • The card offers 500 bonus Aeroplan points for every $2,000 spent in a calendar month, up to 1,500 bonus Aeroplan points per month
  • The card offers priority reward vouchers for reaching certain spending thresholds; for example, if you spend a million dollars on the card in a calendar year, you’ll get a companion voucher that lets you take a companion with you on award tickets at no extra cost (the points redeemed for them will be reimbursed, and this even works on partner airlines)
  • The card offers Aeroplan Elite 25K status for the remainder of the first calendar year in which you get the card, plus the following calendar year; you can maintain that status by spending $15,000 on the card per year in subsequent years
  • If you spend $50,000 on the card in a calendar year you’ll get a one-tier Aeroplan status upgrade, which could even be used to earn top-tier status with Air Canada
  • The card offers a free first checked bag on Air Canada flights for the primary cardmember and up to eight other travelers on the same itinerary
  • The card offers a $100 credit toward Global Entry, TSA PreCheck, or NEXUS, once every four years
  • The card offers World Elite Mastercard benefits, plus travel protection for flight delays, baggage, and more

This really is an incredibly valuable card, especially given that it has such a reasonable annual fee. The card is worth considering even if you don’t fly Air Canada often. Not only does Air Canada belong to the Star Alliance, but Aeroplan has more airline partners than any other frequent flyer program, so there are so many options for redeeming Aeroplan points.

Bottom line

The Aeroplan Credit Card has a great welcome bonus of 70,000 Aeroplan points upon completing minimum spending. This is an excellent bonus for anyone who is eligible for the card but hasn’t yet applied. This is probably the single credit card that I most want (that I don’t already have), so I plan on applying in the near future.

Do you plan on picking up the Aeroplan Credit Card, if you don’t have it already?

    Hi. Wish we Canadians were eligible for this card as it is 10X better than any Canadian Aeroplan Branded card.

    Mentioning the benefits are you tongue in cheek when you state "if you spend a million dollars on the card in a calendar year, you’ll get a companion voucher that lets you take a companion with you on award tickets at no extra cost"? WOW - all that for only a mere million dollar spend? A mere $83,333 a month. All my friends are bound to get the card. ;-)

    Flying U.S. to Canada regularly mean this card is worth it to me, plus Aeroplan points are very useful to anyone. My 5/24 means I cannot apply before Nov 1. Any thoughts on whether this offer will still be available in November, or something similar will be offered in the future?

    This card is by far the shortest shortcut to status in AC's program. And with the program's complete reinvention last year, status is much more important if you don't want to travel in economy. Even for Canadians, this card will get you status more easily than any other approach, short of actually travelling tens of thousands of miles on AC.
