CIBC Aeroplan Visa Infinite

The CIBC Aeroplan Visa Infinite card is a credit card that earns Aeroplan points and is available to individuals in Canada. This card provides cardholders with a range of travel-related benefits, including for Air Canada flights.

Earning Rewards

The CIBC Aeroplan Visa Infinite credit card earns Aeroplan points (AP) for all eligible purchases made on the card:

  • 1.5 Aeroplan points for every dollar spent on Air Canada purchases and Air Canada Vacations packages.
  • 1 Aeroplan point for every dollar spent on all other purchases.

Redeeming Rewards

Aeroplan points can be used to book flight rewards around the world on Air Canada and any of the Star Alliance partnership airlines. The award chart for flight redemption pricing can be found here.

Aeroplan rewards points can also be redeemed for hotels, car rentals, and merchandise. The redemption value, or cent per point, is inferior for these types of redemptions and should be avoided.

Benefits

Upon spending $1k in the first 3 months, CIBC Aeroplan Business cardholders will receive an Air Canada buddy pass. This buddy pass can be used when booking an Air Canada flight 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.

CIBC Aeroplan Visa Infinite cardholders receive a free first checked bag when flying directly with Air Canada. This benefit extends to up to 8 guests that are travelling on the cardholder’s itinerary.

For every $10,000 in net purchases on the card, the cardholder will earn 1k status qualifying miles and 1 status qualifying segment towards Air Canada Aeroplan elite status.

Cardholders are eligible to receive a free Uber Pass membership for 6 months. To enroll, add your CIBC Aeroplan Visa Infinite to your Uber or Uber Eats wallet.
