[TD Bank] TD Aeroplan VISA - 1st Year Free + Free 2-for-1 Short Haul Flight + 15,000 Free Miles

TD is offering all new cardholders the first year free on the TD Aeroplan VISA Infinite card in addition to 15,000 welcome miles and a free short-haul flight (and it appears the booking fee is also waived). Check the link for all the legal info...

Because they come up often I thought I might update the first post:
The first year free is confirmed not to be advertised online, but only in-branch or over-the-phone.
You will be charged the first year free, and subsequently reimbursed in a few statement cycles thereafter.

Interesting statement on the website: "Your Aeroplan Miles will not expire, as long as you are a TD Aeroplan Credit Cardholder." I find that odd, since normally Aeroplan miles don't expire unless you have no activity in 12 consecutive months, regardless of whether you continue with the original card issuer or not. With the old CIBC Aeroplan, I can accumulate Aeroplan miles, eventually cancel my CIBC credit card, and my Aeroplan miles remain. The statement on TD's website indicates otherwise. I hope that is a mistake.

haven't read the details yet but be careful on the "free" short-haul. This is why I've stopped using the 2-for-1 benefit on my Amex - a flight to NYC was $150 or so each in taxes.

Also, at least with Amex, you must fly AC. Limits your choices. not to say any of this is bad, but just be aware.

So I called TD and they said that the statement is there to assure people that by having the TD Aeroplan card, their Aeroplan miles won't expire - however, the miles will not expire even without a TD card as long as you have activity every 12 months.

I should add, that I was told that if I open a checking account at the branch, the points would be 20,000.

I think you are just reading it wrong. As you say, if you don't have any activity for 12 months your points will expire. If you have this card though this does not apply to you. At $120 though this is a pretty expensive way to keep your points alive...

I thought Aeroplan miles transferred to your Aeroplan card??

How would they expire?

A short haul flight is 15,000 points. So provided a typical return short haul flight is over $150 - it's far better than a 1% cash back card.

I've got an account at TD that waives all my banking and Visa fees as long as I've got $5k+ in it. I assume it'd cover the yearly charge for this one also.

They won't as long as you keep your TD Aeroplan Visa and Reward card which allows you to accumulated miles twice as fast.

We won't be able to talk to customers about Aeroplan cards till tomorrow so...

An all-inclusive chequings account does waive the annual fees on any premium TD Visa card like the First Class Visa but I am not 100% sure that applies to the upcoming Aeroplan cards as well.

Don't forget that you are entitled to free bank drafts, certified cheques and a safety deposit box as well with that account. ;)
