As usual $165 annual fee.

I closed this card in April of this year, do you think i can re-qualify? I can't find the wordings in the fine print.

You can get a 100$ TFSA (CELI) voucher for 12 000 points. So, 35 000 points is a bit shy from 300$.

Gift cards used to be 12 000 PTS = 100$ (6 000 PTS = 50$) but since last year it went up to 14 000 PTS = 100$.

from my previous experience, you will get it.

To be on safe side, you can message to RBC to re-confirm you're eligible, get something black and white.

Silly answer from a silly guy - Avion is a RBC owned reward program. For flights, their points can be traded for any airlines with no blackout periods or high/low seasons, so they claimed. Avios is an One World reward program. For flights, their points only be traded with One World carriers like British Airways, JAL, Cathay, Qantas, etc. with high/low seasons. The conversion rate varies, can be significantly, between the two programs. Avion is transferable to Avios only (someone can correct me on this).

No FYF for ~$300 reward ... so less than $135 net gain. Must spend $5,000 in 2 months. Cold deal IMO.

Have similar problem: applied for card over the phone (forgot to tell them I already had a BA Executive Club membership), got card and activated, got run around by RBC Visa call agent and the BA call agent, both saying the other side does the membership account association. T&C says a new BAEC account is created if I don't already have done, so do I just wait until I get my first statement to see what the new account # is, and call up BAEC to get them merged?
Intricated
