I see these as well on my Visa Infinite Avion. 30% off appears to be $0.0059/per point for RBC visa gift cards, and $0.0071/per point on the others mentioned. I was hoping to see a lowes or Home Depot included as I want to cash in points and get a snowblower. I have 190K points..... looking to figure out the best way to extract value. I'm guessing redeeming for travel is still the best bet.

Im a new Avion card holder. What's the redemption value here in terms of points per $1? Is it better than the 100 points for $1 travel?

That's the regular price, once you check out it shows 30% off that. So instead of 70,000 points for $500 gift card, it's 49,000 points for $500 gift card. 1.02 cents/point, which is pretty good for Apple.

Thanks for pointing this out. I wasn't seeing the discount until I got to the "Review Order" page on checkout.

Thanks for pointing that out, makes redemption similar to booking all inclusive travel based on what I just saw.

Good deal. Doesn't seem to make sense to save avion points on travel since these gift cards with promotion offer the same 100 points to a dollar conversion.

Would it be possible to redeem for RBC Visa gift cards, then use those at a retailer to buy other GC's when they have discounts?

Nothing is ever gonna beat that price error earlier this year. Sigh... 30% off just makes it 1:1.
