As Air Canada prepares to launch their new US-based credit card there’s a great opportunity to snag 10,000 extra Aeroplan points. Aeroplan, the loyalty program of Air Canada, is a program that most US residents should be aware of and many will benefit from it.
Air Canada has had a lot going on over the past year. In the midst of planning a new loyalty program, they went back to a familiar name and acquired Aeroplan. Aeroplan was Air Canada’s loyalty program for decades, being sold off as a separate entity a number of years ago. Now, it’s back in the fold and they embarked on an ambitious re-launch last year. The folks at Air Canada really put in the time to come up with innovative new benefits. One of my favorites is Status Pass, which allows elite members to give temporary elite status to family and friends on select trips. This is a big one for me that I can’t wait to take advantage of. When Air Canada announced the new program they came on my podcast twice to talk about the program in length. Links to both of those interviews:

When Air Canada announced the new Aeroplan program, they also announced that they would have a credit card for US residents. Credit cards have become such a key part of earning miles and benefits with airlines and hotels. The news that Air Canada would offer a card that US residents could sign up for was big. It’s especially big because Air Canada is partnering with Chase on their US credit card. As a part of that, it also means that Chase’s flexible currency, Ultimate Rewards, will be a transfer partner with Aeroplan. That’s great news for award redemption, since Aeroplan’s new award chart has plenty of things to be happy about.
Now, as Air Canada and Chase have announced that their partnership with Ultimate Rewards is live, there’s also news that the co-brand credit card for the US is “coming soon”. Air Canada and Chase are offering 10,000 bonus points on top of whatever the sign-up bonus will be for the new card. All you have to do is add your e-mail address to the wait list. It’s free to do so, and if you decide not to apply for the credit card later, there’s no harm here.
So, sign up today! We love free points and it doesn’t get much easier than this to have a shot for 10,000 bonus points.
