Chase Aeroplan

The Chase Aeroplan credit card earns Aeroplan points on all purchases and is available to individuals in the United States. This card comes with many Air Canada travel benefits to enhance your next vacation.

Earning Rewards

The Chase Aeroplan credit card accrues Aeroplan points for all purchases made on the card:

  • 3 Aeroplan points for every dollar spent on Air Canada purchases, including Air Canada Vacations.
  • 3 Aeroplan points for every dollar spent on groceries and dining (including takeout and eligible delivery services).
  • 1 Aeroplan point for every dollar spent on all other purchases.

Cardholders are also eligible to earn an additional 500 Aeroplan points upon spending $2,000 on the card in any calendar month.

Redeeming Rewards

Aeroplan points can be redeemed for flights around the world on Air Canada and any of the Star Alliance partnership airlines.

Aeroplan points can also be redeemed for hotels, car rentals, and merchandise. The redemption value, or cent per point, is very poor for these types of redemptions and as a result, they should be avoided.
