** PLEASE REFRAIN FROM POSTING LINKS TO TD's DIRECT (INFERIOR) CARD APPLICATION PAGE **
The affiliated signups through GreedyRates/GCR have been better, sometimes MUCH better than applying with a non-affiliated signup. As an example, through GreedyRates (source code Sb6l9) during the prior and current Mar-May 2017 promo period, you don't need to spend $1000 to qualify for the bonus 10K after 90 days. Plus, GreedyRates is offering 100% rebate on the $120 annual fee, which you will NOT get if you sign up through a basic non-affiliated TD application page, through an email from TD, or in-branch. The "better" affiliated signups will usually have a web link URL with a source code at the end of the string - GreedyRates=Sb6l9, GCR=NTrSD.

GreedyRates affilated offer March 6 - May 4, 2017 (source code Sb6l9)

Get up to 30,000 Aeroplan Miles and a 100% Annual Fee Rebate3 for the first year! (Primary Cardholder only). Apply by May 4, 2017.

  • 100% Annual Fee Rebate3 for the first year (Primary Cardholder only) – that’s $120 in savings!


Great Canadian Rebates - GCR (source code NTrSD)
https://www.greatcanadianrebates.ca/...Visa-Infinite/
** Do not post direct links to the GCR TD Visa card signup page.**
NOTE: GCR members MUST login first to get the click-thru ID and then the $50 cash back, after card signup and approval.
  • The Cash Back Rebate is from Great Canadian Rebates. It will be deposited to your GCR account.
  • Receive a Welcome Bonus of 15,000 Aeroplan Miles with your first Purchase
  • 10,000 Aeroplan Miles1 when you keep your Account open, active and in good standing for 90 days after Account approval

  • 50% Annual Fee Rebate for the first year (Primary Cardholder only) – that’s $60 in savings!
  • Offer Valid until May 4, 2017
  • Suggestion: if you have the TD All-Inclusive Chequing account, then your annual fees will be waived anyways. So the GCR promo is better for you than the GreedyRates promo because you will earn an extra $50 cash back. GCR memberships are FREE to signup for.

Bottom line, means moving to spend based points only. Impact is on customers who only use cheapest hotel product.

Good write up on Hilton program changes here:

They are thinning their herd from their HH program

The benefit of the Hilton Diamond program is the ability to double dip. My initial reading wasn't clear if this ability has been struck.

Sounds like the lower end users who count on fixed rate airline mile bonuses are affected. My assumption though, is that the double dipping is still there, which is the Hilton Diamond main stay feature, but based on variable $$ spent.

Yes, double dip still there ( a good one I think) For every $1 USD spend 10 HH points and 1 AP points ( if you pick Pints and Miles) plus 25% HH points if Gold , 50% if Diamond.

So if a Hilton Diamond, the 50% more applies to HH points only, or both HH and AP points. Sounds from your statement its both.

HH only for bonus, AP points = spend $ only

Switching gears.. I've clicked on the Aeroplan Privilege Visa link top of the page, and I can't find the Hilton Diamond and FPC Platinum accelerated status as a listed benefit, that has been discussed in this thread. Is this an unpublished benefit, or another TD card (not Privilege) all together?

https://visainfinite.ca/privilege/infiniteprivilege.jsp

I guess it has to do more with Infinite Privilege benefits..

I currently have the TD Infinite First Class Travel Card, and Select Service (or whatever the 5k balance checking is called these days)

My Visa fees are waived. Can I switch to the Aeroplan card, what fees are waived on the Privilege?

On the TD Aeroplan card page,
http://www.tdcanadatrust.com/product...ilege-card.jsp
down toward the bottom, it says:
"Exclusive Benefits with Visa Infinite Privilege" and one of those items is
"Hotel Benefits".

When you click that, you get (at least in my browser) a popup
Visa Infinite Privilege Hotel Benefits

With your Visa Infinite Privilege Card, you’re assured that every hotel stay, everywhere you travel in the world, will be simply extraordinary. Choose a property with confidence from the Visa Infinite Luxury Hotel Collection, our handpicked portfolio of over 900 of the world’s most prestigious properties. Plus, enjoy the option of enrolling in or upgrading to elevated membership in Fairmont President’s Club. For details, visit visainfinite.ca/privilegeundefined.


Following THAT link, you get to a page that requires a login, or a further link that takes you to the site you mention. From that, it very indirectly, obliquely, whispers that there is Hilton membership tied to the TD Aeroplan Visa Infinite Privilege card.

Let's 'flyquiet' under the radar.

Nice find super sleuths.. 99.9% of the public wouldn't know this. Definitely not by looking at the benefits outlined on the Privilege offering. I wonder if the agents whose handling the application knows about these benefits. I wonder if TD execs know?

The Plat5 similar Fairmont program that Privilege offering is having me consider not applying for AeroPlat at all. Simply overlap in the benefits.

Please correct me if I am wrong, but I thought Amex Plat5 was five nights, whereas this Visa Plat5 is five stays.

just got my letter from CIBC today and i'm a bit confused as to what's going on.......




a bit of history/info..
-I have banking with PC financial but I don't have any banking ties with CIBC other than their CC
-i applied for the aerogold around jan 2013 when they had a FYF promo
-cancelled the aerogold around june 2013, reapplied again because they were offering FYF but this time I got the aerogold infinite

so my questions are......why am I getting a letter for a cancelled card and why am I "staying" with cibc even though I have no banking ties? i have not received anything yet with regards to my aerogold infinite. strange.

The more confusing part to me is the 20% discount for market fare tickets, is it mean you can get the discount if you have the card even without Silver status?

Maybe a bit strange. Most likely your account went over to TD in a close file format as you can always reactivate upto some time after closure. When RBC took over the Optimum Visa, I had the letter from RBC about stuff but it was long canceled with MBNA. Some regulation or something. I called to make sure its not active and was told everything is fine card is closed etc. Other stuff I did not listen to what the rep said to remember. You will be fine.
