New Chase Aeroplan Card Bonus, Earn Up to 101K Points
The Chase Aeroplan® World Elite Mastercard® Credit Card has a new bonus that can earn new applicants up to 101,000 points. This card launched recently with a bonus of two Flight Rewards of up to 50,000 points each, which just ended a couple of days ago. The new offer gives you only one Flight Reward for up to 50,000 points and up to an additional 51,000 points through spending on travel and dining during the first 6 months. Let’s take a look at the details of this new Chase Aeroplan Card bonus and see how it works.
- Earn a Welcome Flight Reward worth up to 50,000 points after you spend $3,000 in your first 3 months from account opening.
- Plus, earn up to 51,000 points through 10x total points on travel and dining in your first 6 months.
- $95 Annual Fee

This is not exactly a welcome bonus of 101,000 points. Half of the bonus comes in the form of a Flight Reward that can be used for any Aeroplan redemption. That includes travel on partner airlines. If your redemption is more than 50,000 points, you can redeem more points from your account on top of the 50,000 Flight Reward Certificate. So if your award flight costs 60,000 points, you can use one certificate and 10,000 points. But, if the certificate is redeemed for an award flight less than 50,000 points, the remainder of the certificate is forfeited.
Then you can earn up to 51,000 points through 10x total points on travel and dining in your first 6 months. While that will give you a total of 51,000 points if maximized, it’s not really a bonus of 51,000 points. You can probably 3x or more on travel with one of the cards in your wallet, and maybe 4x on restaurant purchases. So I would value that part of the bonus at about 35,000 points. It’s still a good offer, but just not as good as it sounds.
If you need more Aeroplan points, you can also transfer from Chase Ultimate Rewards.
