Here’s an introduction to the 4 great new offers.

 

TD Aeroplan Visa Infinite Card

This is the highest offer ever on this card, with the 1st year free! It’s a really great offer that gives you 66,250 Aeroplan points if you take advantage of all the parts, because it’s a welcome bonus with several separate bonuses, unlike most.

Note that Aeroplan cards have a peculiarity (since many banks issue them): you can’t get this welcome bonus right away if you recently (≈ 18 months) got the American Express Aeroplan Card (dark gray), which is the best alternative if you don’t earn $60,000. If you got the American Express Aeroplan Reserve Card (black), then you can get this one right away.

Aeroplan points have unlimited value, they are the most valuable and lucrative points.

You can read 18 good uses of Aeroplan points and the basics of the Aeroplan program while waiting for our ultimate guide that will first be sent to those who sign up for our free webinar on the Aeroplan program.

Here is the welcome bonus structure for the TD Aeroplan Visa Infinite Card:

  • 10,000 pts after 1st purchase (≈ $150)
  • 30,000 pts after spending $5,000 in 6 months (≈ $450)
    • 7,500 pts earned on that spending (≈ $113)
  • 15,000 pts after spending another $2,500 in 12 months (≈ $225)
    • 3,750 pts earned on that spending (≈ $56)

A requirement of $5,000 in 6 months may seem like a lot, but it’s the equivalent of just $192 per week. And over a long period of time like 6 months, you’re pretty likely to have a big expense come up to go faster. If not, you can read our 5 tips to reach the minimum spend requirements. It really shouldn’t be an issue. 

So with the TD Aeroplan Visa Infinite Card you can get 47,500 Aeroplan points for free pretty quickly. That’s worth ≈ $713 in discounts on flights on Air Canada or the 40+ partner airlines. That’s enough for almost 8 one-way short-distance reward flights, for example. Or a one-way flight to Europe in business class if you prefer. Or a ≈ $500 discount on any Air Canada flight if you want to make it a lot easier.

The 3rd part of the award is optional of course (but it’s profitable, so you should take advantage of it if you weren’t going to use that spending to unlock another card’s welcome bonus and if you know how to do the math — and knowing how to do math is vital in the world of travel rewards as I’m sure you know).

That renewal bonus would give you another good amount of points after the 1st year, worth more than the 2nd year fee. And also allows you to keep all the benefits for a 2nd year.

The card also gives you a $100 credit towards your NEXUS card. Every savvy traveler should have NEXUS, it’s so amazing to avoid all the lines at security checkpoints and customs in Canadian and American airports. Part 2 of our NEXUS card guide is coming soon.

The card gives you preferred pricing when you use your Aeroplan points on Air Canada instead of on partners. The card also gives you a free checked bag on Air Canada for you and 8 other travel buddies, if you’re among those who take too much stuff on a trip

You can read our TD Aeroplan Visa Infinite Card resource page while you wait for our detailed text and video review and our free 30-page guide to the card (sign up for our free newsletter on travel rewards to receive them first).

 

TD First Class Travel Visa Infinite Card

This is the highest offer ever on this card, with the 1st year free! But it’s also the best offer ever, on any card, for simple points that can be applied to almost any trip! An easy $825 travel credit completely free!

Among simple fixed-value rewards, TD Rewards points don’t give you the most flexibility because you have to use them on their Expedia for TD travel booking platform to maximize their value.

But the fact remains that the vast majority of travel is available on that platform, so you’ll have $825, completely free, to use on almost any trip! That’s absolutely phenomenal!

Here is the welcome bonus structure for the TD First Class Travel Visa Infinite Card:

  • 20,000 pts after 1st purchase ($100)
  • 115,000 pts after spending $5,000 in 6 months ($575)
    • 20,000 pts earned on that spending ($100)
  • 10,000 pts as a Birthday Bonus ($50)

Again, $5,000 in 6 months is the equivalent of just $192 per week. That’s going to give you a huge welcome bonus!

What’s special about the TD First Class Travel Visa Infinite Card is the Birthday Bonus. You’ll get 10% of the points earned the year before your birthday, so it may be a little lower than the 10,000 point maximum for you if your birthday is in the next few months, before you can unlock the bonus. But it’s the smallest component of the bonus by far, so it’s not dramatic.

You need to use your free $825 credit on travel bookings made through Expedia for TD, which includes almost everything. But you can also use your points for any travel expense booked anywhere if you prefer, but with TD that lowers the value by 20%. It still gives you $660 free (instead of $825), which is still phenomenal.

You can read our TD First Class Travel Visa Infinite Card resource page while you wait for our detailed text and video review and our free 30-page guide to the card (sign up for our free newsletter on travel rewards to receive them first).

 

TD Aeroplan Visa Infinite Privilege Card

This is the highest offer ever on this card, the premium version of the Aeroplan products at TD. A great offer that gives you 131,501 Aeroplan points if you take advantage of all the parts, because it too has a welcome bonus with several separate bonuses.

Note that the TD version has a very high minimum income. If you want a premium Aeroplan card that has all the same travel benefits on Air Canada with no minimum income, consider the American Express Aeroplan Reserve Card. We’ll be comparing the 2 head to head soon.

You can’t get the welcome bonus on the 2 premium versions (black cards) within ≈ 18 months, but you can get 1 welcome bonus on a premium card if you just got the bonus on the dark gray version.

Here is the welcome bonus structure for the TD Aeroplan Visa Infinite Privilege Card:

  • 20,000 pts after 1st purchase (≈ $300)
  • 60,000 pts after spending $5,000 in 6 months (≈ $900)
    • 10,313 pts earned on that spending (≈ $155)
  • 35,000 pts after spending another $4,500 in 12 months (≈ $525)
    • 6,188 pts earned on that spending (≈ $93)

As a premium card, the minimum amounts are higher than the main-level card.

So with the TD Aeroplan Visa Infinite Privilege Card you can have a huge amount of very valuable points. Lots and lots of rewards flights.

But the main benefit, it’s unlimited access to Air Canada airport lounges for you and a guest (when you fly Air Canada or Star Alliance). You also get 6 DragonPass lounges too. We’ll have a detailed lounge guide up soon.

The card also gives you a lot of other benefits on Air Canada, it’s really designed for those who travel frequently on Air Canada: priority check-in, priority baggage handling, priority boarding, etc. Aeroplan’s preferred pricing on Air Canada is even better as a premium card.

As with the other one, you get the same free baggage and $100 credit to pay for your NEXUS card.

You can read our TD Aeroplan Visa Infinite Privilege Card resource page while you wait for our detailed text and video review and our free 30-page guide to the card (sign up for our free newsletter on travel rewards to receive them first).

 

TD Aeroplan Visa Platinum Card

This also ties the highest offer ever on this card, also with the 1st year free! It’s quite a bit lower, but it’s a Visa alternative for those with a lower annual income (or for those who recently got the Aeroplan American Express Card) that will still give you 21,000 points for free and easily.

Keep in mind that the Aeroplan American Express Card (dark gray) has no minimum income either, with a higher welcome bonus (but higher spend to unlock it).

Since this one is a different Aeroplan credit card level (different color), there are no rules that prevent you from getting this bonus even if you had an Aeroplan card issued by American Express.

Here is the welcome bonus structure for the TD Aeroplan Visa Platinum Card:

  • 10,000 pts after 1st purchase (≈ $150)
  • 10,000 pts after spending $1,000 in 3 months (≈ $150)
    • 1,000 pts earned on that spending (≈ $15)

The TD Aeroplan Visa Platinum Card doesn’t have the travel benefits, but it at least has the all-important flight delay insurance (but fewer other types of insurance than the other 3 cards obviously).

So if you have a card that earns Amex points and you’ve wisely transferred them to Aeroplan to maximize their value, this card allows you to be covered for free for 1 year for your reward flights paid with Aeroplan points for example.

You can read our TD Aeroplan Visa Platinum Card resource page while you wait for our detailed text and video review and our free 30-page guide to the card (sign up for our free newsletter on travel rewards to receive them first).

As this is one of the best and expires in a few days, I wanted to mention this one again. More detailed content is coming this week for those who want to take advantage of it before the offer expires; stay tuned.

 

National Bank World Elite Mastercard

It’s one of the highest offers ever on this card and it’s ending on January 13th (UPDATE: the offer has been extended)! And it’s a good example of why to go through our links: it’s still zero cost to you, but in some cases (like this one), the offer on the National Bank public site is lower than the one via the Flytrippers links!

This offer is special and is really good, especially for those who normally pay for travel extras. The thing is, it gives you $450 as a simple travel credit for free (like with TD Rewards points, you have to use it on the National Bank platform or you can apply them to any travel expense at a slightly lower valuation), but also $300 in special credits.

You’ll get two $150 credits for airport parking, baggage fees, seat selection, ticket upgrades, or airport lounge access. One in 2023 and one that you must plan to use in the first week of 2024 to properly maximize it, whether you keep the card or not after your 1st year. 

Here is the welcome bonus structure for the National Bank World Elite Mastercard:

  • 30,000 pts after spending $5,000 in 3 months ($300)
    • 5,000 pts earned on that spending ($50)
  • 10,000 pts for adding payment insurance during your application ($100)
    • Free with our tip; you need to keep it for only 3 months

The spending requirement is a bit higher (and so is the minimum income), but the card has some interesting benefits.

The National Bank World Elite Mastercard‘s insurance coverage is one of the best in Canada. First, it applies to all travel even if you just pay taxes with your card, you don’t have to charge everything to your card or use the rewards program associated with the card. 

Best of all, travel medical insurance is available for travelers over 65, which is not often the case. And for those 54 and under, the coverage is for 60 days of travel (31 days for ag 55 to 64).

Finally, it also gives you unlimited free access (with 1 guest) to an airport lounge in Montréal (YUL), on the international side (US excluded due to terminal configuration). It’s the most limited lounge access of all the cards that have access, but it’s better than none at all.

You can read our National Bank World Elite Mastercard resource page while you wait for our detailed review and our free 30-page guide to the card (sign up for our free newsletter on travel rewards to receive them first).
