Chase Aeroplan Card Brings Back 100K Point Bonus Offer

“Opinions, reviews, analyses & recommendations are the author’s alone, and have not been reviewed, endorsed or approved by any of these entities.”

Whether you’re a frequent Air Canada passenger or just a fan of earning rewards, a new welcome bonus offered for the Chase Aeroplan card may be of interest.

About the offer:

Currently, new Chase Aeroplan cardholders can earn up to 100,000 bonus points. However, this deal is broken up into two pieces. First, cardholders can earn 75,000 points when they spend at least $4,000 in purchases on the card within their first three months. Then, after spending at least $20,000 on the card within their first 12 months, they’ll receive an additional 25,000 bonus points.

Notably, while this current offer bears a similar structure to a previous 100k offer, it is slightly different. Earlier this year, Chase and Aeroplan offered new cardholders 60,000 points for $4,000 in spending within the first three months, with the other 40,000 points coming after $20,000 in purchases were made with the card during the first year. This version of the offer expired in May.

About the Aeroplan Card:

Beyond this intro bonus, the Chase Aeroplan card has plenty of other rewards and perks to offer. In terms of rewards categories, the card earns 3 points per dollar spent at grocery stores, 2x points at restaurants (including takeout and eligible delivery services), 3x points on Air Canada purchases, and 1x points on all other purchases. Plus, for every $2,000 customers spend on the card in a calendar month, they’ll earn 500 bonus points — although this is capped at 1,5000 bonus points per month.

With the Aeroplan card being an Air Canada co-branded card, there are also benefits for flyers. For example, cardholders and their travel companions can get their first checked bag free on the airline.

Plus, new cardholders will automatically earn Aeroplan 25K status for the remainder of the calendar year plus the following calendar year. With this status, customers can enjoy priority seat selection, upgrades, and more. Those who spend at least $15,000 per calendar year on the card will also be able to retain their 25K status.

Finally, another useful benefit of the Aeroplan card is Chase Pay Yourself Back. Using this feature, cardholders can redeem their Aeroplan points for travel purchases including flights (Air Canada or otherwise), hotels, rental cars, and more. When using this program, points will be valued at 1.25¢ each, meaning that 100,000 points would be worth $1,250 in statement credits toward eligible travel purchases.

It should be noted that the Chase Aeroplan card does carry a $95 annual fee, which is not waived for the first year.

My thoughts:

Even as someone who’s never flown Air Canada, the Aeroplan Card has been one I’ve had my eye on. That’s because Aeroplan points can not only be used to book flights on partner airlines but also, with Chase’s Pay Yourself Back program on the card, can be redeemed for generic travel purchases at a value of 1.25¢ each. Therefore, this 100,000-mile offer — or even the 75,000-mile portion of it — could be quite lucrative and worth the card’s $95 annual fee. Admittedly, though, I probably won’t be adding this one to my wallet (at least not yet). That said, I still think this deal is worth consideration by travelers of all stripes.
