  • 3 Points per dollar spent on Air Canada Purchases
  • 3 Points per dollar spent on grocery and dining purchases including take out/delivery
  • 1 Point per dollar spent on all other eligible purchases

The card also offers 500 bonus points for every $2,000 you spend in a calendar month (up to 1,500 points per month)

Features and Benefits

The Aeroplan® Credit Card is full of benefits and additional features that complement and go beyond the Aeroplan program. Some have already been mentioned – the preferred pricing on Aeroplan reward flights is one such benefit.

First Checked Bag Free on Air Canada flights

Probably the most popular benefit that has been added to all Aeroplan co-brand cards in the U.S. and Canada is the first checked bag free benefit. It is provided for the cardholder and up to 8 companions on the same reservation and it waives the fee associated with basic and standard economy class fares. This saves the cardholder US$30 per bag on flights in the Americas. It will also save US$70 per bag if you buy the cheapest economy basic fares to Europe. (Pricing was current as of November 2, 2022).

Aeroplan 25K Elite Status

All new primary cardholders will automatically receive Aeroplan 25K status for the calendar year in which the card account is opened and for the following calendar year. After that if you spend $15,000 per year on the card you will maintain 25K status.

Elite Status Level Up

As the Primary Cardmember, you will have the ability to earn an Elite Status Level Up of one tier to 35K Status or higher for existing status holders with $50,000 in account spend during a calendar year

Global Entry or TSA PreCheck or NEXUS Fee Credit

With the Aeroplan® Credit Card you’ll receive one statement credit with a value of up to $100 every four years after the first program (either Global Entry or TSA PreCheck® or NEXUS) application fee is charged to your card, by you or an authorized user

No Foreign Transaction fees

With the Aeroplan® Credit Card you won’t be charged any extra fees when making purchases that are not in US dollars.

Chase Pay Yourself Back

As this is a U.S. based card and Air Canada doesn’t have flights within the U.S. beyond what you can redeem for with United the card offers Chase Pay Yourself Back. This means cardmembers will be able to apply their Aeroplan points toward travel purchases on any airline, including hotel, car rental, and more at a rate of USD 1.25 cents per point up to 50,000 points per year (US$625 of value)

50% off promo rewards

Have the ability to spend a lot on your card? You’ll be rewarded with 50% off priority rewards when you hit $100,000, $250,000, $500,000 and $750,000 on the card annually..

Unlimited Global+1

Hit the one million mark in spending on the card annually and you’ll get the Unlimited Global+1 benefit. This provides a 100% points rebate for companions on all flight rewards booked for two people. This is available across all cabins and airline partners. Think of this way – redeem for one first class ticket on an Aeroplan partner airline you get the second for free (I’m assuming you do have to pay the taxes and fees though but the good news there is Aeroplan doesn’t charge carrier surcharges anymore)
