Has anyone received the AMEX Aeroplus Platinum card buddy pass yet?

I already had an AMEX Aeroplus Platinum/AMEX reserve card on Nov 8 - so I could not get it that way.
So I already had a TD VISA infinite card -I switched to Nov 8 to a TD VISA Infinite Privilege on that day.
I spent at least $10,000 on that card between Nov 8 and Dec 22 (date of next TD statement).
I got he 40,000 welcome Aeroplan points (I would have received 50,000 points, if I did not already have the TD VISA infinite card).

So I presume I would get the buddy pass display on my aeroplan account (web site)? Not yet.

When should I expect it?

I got mine from CIBC as soon as I made my first purchase. Others haven't received the TD one.

No idea on the timing, I'm afraid. I believe it was discussed in another thread as well.

I got the same points posted as yours. I was told I would get 50K points and the missing 10k will be posted next statement with the buddy pass. If not I should call back in.

Any updates for anyone on this?

I signed up early December for the TD card, only put on $800 in my first statement...my last statement just posted with about $8700 in purchases. I've received all bonus points but NOT the pass. I called TD who said it was an Aeroplan issue after 5-minutes, they forwarded me and had no idea which pass I was referring to...after awhile they said it is a TD issue as TD has to authorize it from their side

I got my bonus points in December, but still don't have the buddy pass from TD.

It looks like only CIBC has posted the Buddy Pass relatively quickly. TD and AMEX are lagging behind. Then again the delay does add additional time to use it so there is a positive to the delay.

...except when you are waiting to book a trip to use it

This is too bad

I'd signed up for a new Aeroplan Amex in November and received the buddy pass very soon afterwards. I don't recall the exact dates, but I think I got the buddy pass a few days after meeting the spend requirement for the pass back in November. Amex was quicker than I expected in posting it for me.

Similar timing to you - but, received the 5000 waitlist bonus on 1st statement. The 9000 comes this month after meeting minimum spend.
I also got that 2500 additional bonus for December spend and 2 x 1000 monthly spend bonus on my 1st statement.

Well, that is interesting with the 2 x 1,000 monthly spend. The T&C stated 1,000 monthly for six months on a $500 a month minimum spend. I guess it's a total of 6,000 points if you spend 6 x $500. I did my $1,500 in the first two months so the 9,000 bonus points were awarded in statement two as the T&C stated 9,000 points with $1,500 spend over three months. Not sure about the 2,500 bonus points, but I will take it.

I do struggle with this card as the AMEX Gold gives me more points on more purchases than this one. My TD AP Card is free because of my account with TD and gives me the same, a little more than the AMEX AP. Giving this card one year trial to see if it's worth it. Not sure why the 5,000 Waitlisted bonus did not kick in right away?

Has anyone been able to redeem their buddy pass? When I try, I just see the air plane spinning around in circles endlessly.
