Upon spending $3,000 in the first 4 months, CIBC Aeroplan Visa Business cardholders will receive an Air Canada buddy pass. This buddy pass can be used when booking an economy cash-fare ticket for yourself and your companion. When making this booking, apply the buddy pass to only pay the taxes/fees on the companion ticket. The Air Canada buddy pass covers the cost of the base fare.
When flying on a flight operated by Air Canada, cardholders are eligible to receive a free first checked bag on Air Canada flights. This benefit extends to up to 8 guests that are traveling on the cardholder’s itinerary and is a great way to save on Air Canada baggage fees.
Cardholders will earn 1,000 status qualifying miles (SQM) and 1 status qualifying segment (SQS) for every $5,000 spent on eligible purchases. Both the miles and the segments earned can help boost Aeroplan members to the next status level.
Cardholders will receive 1 Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge guest pass for every $10,000 in spend on the card, up to four passes for $40,000 in spend within an anniversary year. For the average user, this is a benefit not worth pursuing due to the astronomically high spending requirement.
