    I followed the link and applied for the TD Aeroplan Infinite card. I was accepted online but the small print said that i would have to pay the $120 annual fee. Called the TD hotline (1 800 983 2582) and they said this deal ended in November. Applied anyway after being assured that I am able to cancel if the $120 charge goes through. Off to the bank (if I can find one open) to see what they have to say.

    Update: the person at the bank didn’t know about this offer either but confirmed it over the phone with another TD employee. Apparently the bank ran this promotion up until November 2014. Aeroplan is now hosting the promotion. One must sign up for it online and not in person at the TD bank, offer open until May 8, 2015. The $120 annual fee is charged on the first bill and then refunded two months later. By spending $1000 in the first 90 days one ‘earns’ another 10000 points totaling 25000 points. That’s enough for me to fly return to Vancouver twice paying only the taxes. Whoot! (Or a long-haul flight to anywhere AC flies in Canada/the US (but not Hawaii)).
