Are you eligible if you previously had this card? I read through the fine print and it doesn't say anything about it.

Wondering about this too, desactivated the card almost a year ago.

Same... read through T&Cs and doesn’t say anything about previously holding the card. Just says existing cardholders not eligible.

Tempting. Wish they have a chequing account that can waive annual fees yearly.

Their RBC rewards sale last black Friday was impressive.

From the T&C

Additional cardholder(s), as well as existing RBC Avion Visa Infinite or RBC Avion Visa Platinum, Cathay Pacific‡ Visa Platinum, British Airways‡ Visa Infinite, RBC Rewards Visa Preferred, RBC Avion Visa Infinite Privilege and RBC Avion Visa Infinite Privilege for Private Banking cardholders, applying for or transferring to an RBC Avion Visa Infinite card as of the offer eligibility period, are not eligible for this offer. This offer is eligible for the RBC Avion Visa Infinite card and the RBC Avion Visa Platinum card if you are approved for either through this offer. This offer may not be combined or used in conjunction with any other offer and may be amended or withdrawn without notice at any time, even after acceptance by you

So if you currently have this card, or one of the others in the bolded text above, you don’t qualify.
However you do if you’ve had the card before.

@bizee-bee has churned this card more times than anyone I know.
Perhaps he’ll chime in with his expertise.

What are 25k points worth? I know that 100k TD points are worth $500 travel, what about RBC?

Last time I got 250$ worth of Amazon gift cards which I find more useful than 100K td points because you have to use those td points in expedia and I find that there prices in expedia are grossly inflated.

I switched to the Rewards plus a few months ago. I'm going to to the bank and see if I can switch to the visa infinite

Thanks goodness WestJet WE isn't in the list because I'm sure there are many of us here who jumped the ship in the last 2 rounds.

I just canceled this card last week. I wonder if it’ll approve me if I apply this week.
