Why We Like It
The TD Aeroplan™ Visa Signature® Credit Card is a solid no annual fee card for those who fly Air Canada often and seek to redeem Aeroplan Miles for free flights on Air Canada or other Star Alliance airlines. It's the only Air Canada card for US residents.
Earn 2X Aeroplan miles on all Air Canada purchases, and 1X mile on everything else.
Air Canada is the largest airline of Canada with main hubs in Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, and Calgary. Popular destinations include New York's JFK, Boston, Houston, Los Angeles's LAX, Las Vegas, Chicago, San Francisco, Tokyo, Beijing, Sydney, Paris's Charles de Gaulle, Mexico City, Cancun, London, Frankfurt, Montego Bay, Punta Cana, and multiple other Caribbean destinations. Recently added routes include direct service to India and Australia.
Limited-Time Bonus: you'll earn 25,000 Bonus Aeroplan Miles when you sign up now and spend $1,000 on purchases in the first 3 billing cycles of account opening. Based on our valuation, each mile could be worth up to 6 cents, so the 25K sign-up bonus could be worth up to $1,500 in free air travel (depending on destination, day of week, and seasonality)!
Insider Tip: As a TD Bank cardholder you can buy Visa gift cards directly from TD Bank for no fees to purchase and make transactions. Normally you are charged a $5.95 fee for a $100 Visa gift card when you buy from a retail store or website! You can use your TD credit card to buy the gift cards.

We recommend you have Good to Excellent (690 - 850) credit before applying for this card.
On Air Canada's website you can easily view how many points you need for award flights in a simple table. No need to search by route.
Unlike other airline, Air Canada's Aeroplan program only charges fuel surcharges on some partner award tickets, which would normally be $400 and upwards on international flights.
Air Canada also allows cancellations up to two hours before departure for only a ~$72 change fee. Most airlines charge $150 or higher. Transfer Aeroplan miles to a family member or friend for 2 cents per mile.
This is the only non-American Express card you could earn Aeroplan miles with.

Thoughts from Actual Users
"Good card. I got this card because of the Aeroplan points I could gain. It's been a good card and has allowed me to go to Europe (2x)." Sol S. of New York, NY
"I love the card as I can collect Aeroplan points. When making purchases I can receive bonus points on purchases on Air Canada, which makes collecting for rewards add up even faster. Air Canada has a lot of good short haul flights and Staralliance options." Rose L. of Fairfax, CA
