  1. Are there any risks in using this card to elevate your Aeroplan status, if the card is open on US address (how otherwise?) and the Aeroplan account is on Canadian address?

    • Hi Stephen,

      Minimal if zero risk. Many Canadians hold the chase card and take advantage of the status elevation perk with no issues. Plus, whose to say you don’t have both a Canadian and US address?
