Aeroplan is the largest and most extensive frequent flyer program in Canada. With Air Canada's extensive network of prestigious airlines, you can redeem your Aeroplan Miles for travel rewards to almost any destination worldwide. Aeroplan also offers a wide range of specialty rewards from car rentals, hotel stays, and vacation packages.

1 The card’s interest rate will change from time to time on 30 days prior notice to cardholders. If your credit rating and financial situation do not meet certain criteria set by CIBC, CIBC may still issue the card, but at a rate of 24%.

2 Applies to new, approved Primary Cardholders only. Bonus Aeroplan Miles are awarded after the first purchase is made with the card. This offer cannot be combined with any other offer.

3 This offer is only available on the CIBC Aerogold Visa Card. The 50% more offer applies only to CIBC Aerogold Visa Card purchases (less returns) at merchants which are classified in the Visa network as grocery stores, service stations/automated gas dispensers or drugstores. Some merchants may sell these products/services, or are separate merchants who are located on the premises of these merchants, but are coded in another manner, in which case this added benefit would not apply. Any returns or other credits for card purchases at grocery, gas or drug stores will be deducted from your Aeroplan Account at the rate of 1.5 Aeroplan Miles for each dollar in returns/credits. This bonus Miles offer is only available on the first $80,000 in net annual Card purchases per Aerogold Account (meaning all card purchases by all cardholders, at any type of merchant); after that, net card purchases at these merchants will earn Aeroplan Miles at the regular rate. The $80,000 limit will reset to zero after the day your December statement is printed. Terms, conditions and eligible merchant categories may change without notice.

4 Applies to any available seat in Economy Class/Executive First® additional miles may be required. See for details. ClassicPlus Flight rewards are eligible on e-ticket destinations only. See for details.

5 Aeroplan rules require at least one accumulation or redemption transaction each year in an Aeroplan account or the Aeroplan Miles will expire. CIBC has ensured that this doesn’t happen to Aerogold cardholders in good standing. Please note, however, that Aeroplan Miles will expire if they are not redeemed within 7 years from when they were earned (or by Dec. 31, 2013, for Miles earned before 2007). See for details.

6 Aeroplan Miles are earned on card purchases less returns, and not on cash advances (including by CIBC Convenience Cheque or balance transfer), fees, interest or payments. Aeroplan Miles will be awarded only if your CIBC Aerogold VISA Card Account is in good standing on each monthly statement date (otherwise, miles are cancelled). Aeroplan Miles are not actual miles but points towards Aeroplan rewards, including flights. Taxes, landing and departure fees and other charges and surcharges may apply to Aeroplan reward travel. Aeroplan partners, rules and regulations are subject to change without notice.

7 The CIBC ADVANTEX BENEFIT applies only if the card is used for payment at participating establishments. Some restrictions may apply. Please visit for full terms and conditions.
