CIBC Aventura infinite visa 35k (including product change)

Called in to check any offers. Basically all offers were available that match what is on the web.

Chose aventura for the $800 rewards and nexus rebate. FYF as well. 15k bonus first purchase and 20k if u spend $1000 every month for 12 months. 4 priority passes (Though useless now with premium plaza no longer available)

Didn't choose aeroplan infinite because the buddy pass is only for new applications.

imo aventura card is really ugly for $139. I like aeroplan card look.

I product switched from CIBC Aeroplan to CIBC Aventura. Got the 15k initial points. Not sure about FYF, as my Smart Plus account waived the annual fee. Anyone know where I can see the transaction record of Aventura ponits? CIBC rewards website seem like a mess compared to Aeroplan app, to be honest.

I would argue that PP passes are not necessarily useless, if you only get 4 of them. Even for light travelers, finding opportunities to use 4 passes once COVID restrictions lift shouldn't be too hard. Losing Plaza Premium is a big deal if you have a card that grants unlimited entry (and pay the big annual fees for it).

Probably. I got the Smart Plus account for free by having my RRSP and TFSA with IE, so might as well get a free credit card. I held my previous CIBC AP infinite for a year and spent 10k on it, getting the one year point bonus. Will probably PS away once I use up my 4 PP passes, assuming travel returns.

How much is 20k points worth? I think u can redeem them for gift cards?

Looking to get this card mainly for the nexus rebate and the lounge passes. My partner had this card but covid hit and then we missed out on using those lounge passes as they expire.
