Even though I have been flying Westjet for the last two years I bit the bullet and signed up for the TD Aeroplan Visa Infinite Credit card early this year. I’m already a holder of the TD First Class Visa Infinite card and pay no fees as I hold the TD All-Inclusive Banking Plan and that rebates me one annual fee rebate. However, the TD Aeroplan Visa Infinite card was too good to give up on. At the time they had a promotion of 30,000 Aeroplan points (15,000 on sign up and 15,000 after $1K spend in 90 days) and first year free. Basically you can cancel this card after 6 months and keep the points.
The promotion I had was over but they made a new one (not as good but decent) with 25,000 points, 15,000 for signing up and 10,000 after $2k spend in 90 days. First year is still free. This offer ends September 3.
The only reason why I signed up was to rack up on my current Aeroplan point collection. I’m sitting about 30,000 away from enough points for the family to fly roundtrip to Hawaii next year. I don’t plan on keeping this card and will close it at the start of 2020 but might consider getting again to take advantage of the complimentary first checked bag and one guest pass to the Air Canada lounge.
The other travel benefits are pretty typical.
What cards to you churn strictly for benefits and points?
