Maple Leaf Lounge access with TD aeroplan VISA

Hi, I need information how to use my annual access to Maple leaf Lounge using my TD Aeroplan VISA. I redeem my ticket using Aeroplan miles from Toronto to Hong Kong and transit in Vancouver.
My questions are, how do I get the priority check-in and luggage. Do I just walk up to the check-in counter and show them my passport and TD Aeroplan VISA?
Can I use the Lounge in Vancouver instead of Toronto. I have 3 hours in Vancouver waiting for my connection flight to Hong Kong.
Do I just show the front desk with my boarding pass and TD VISA card before I enter the lounge? Thanks.

Yes. You have one visit per year with the TD ae infinite visa.

For priority check-in, just show you card as you line up there.

I can use the Maple leaf lounge in any airport in Canada not just Toronto, right?

so this is valid only if you redeem aeroplan miles? not if you booked in using your card?

A little off-topic but does anyone know of any valid discount or promo codes for an annual North America pass for Maple Leaf Club. There was a 10% back in May 2016 (IIRC) but since then, I haven't found anything. I am travelling next week and will be getting an annual pass for my partner and I but if there's a discount available somewhere, that helps.
(and yes, turn-around time for applications is 3-4 weeks, as per their website, but I'll splurge the extra $25 to get the next-day membership confirmation).

Thanks in advance, RFD'ers!

I never actually used priority check in with aeroplan points redemption. Not sure why I missed that. Question that I have, is it only when flying out or at any time. Say, I have a few stop overs on the way there(where I'll be leaving airport) so I'll be checking in my luggage 2 times on the way to my destination and 3 times on the way home. So, does that mean I will get 5 priority check ins??

As long as each ticket/leg was paid for by the redemption of points, yes, you should get it every time.

As others have said, lounge has to be used during your Aeroplan trip. Priority checking and boarding zone will automatically be applied on your reservation - it'll be in the codes on your boarding pass.

I know I can use the Maple Leaf Lounge once a year with an Aeroplan redemption ticket. My question: if there is no Maple Leaf Lounge in the airport (Boston's Logan), can I use the promotion at an affiliated lounge of a Star Alliance partner? or is it solely for Maple Leaf lounges? Thanks!

Ignore my question. I called Aeroplan and no, it can't be a partner. It MUST be an AC Maple Leaf Lounge. sigh.
