It appears to be, yes, because some (travel-related) purchases on the card earn 1.5 miles and others earn 1.0 miles.
If the 5 bonus miles spend was supposed to include the regular earning, some of which could be 1.5 miles, then those wouldn't be bonus miles. Something like that. I'm very tired.

2x questions;

Currently hold TDAVI.
Is it possible to apply for and also hold the TD Aeroplan Visa Platinum?
What about the TD Aeroplan Visa Infinite Privilege? (possible to hold all 3... ?)


Second question;
Also have the TD FCT Visa Infinite. Have 80,000+ points.
Is the best redemption value by booking through Expedia for TD?

To answer your second question:
Yes, the best redemption rate is, alas, through Expedia for TD. You'll get $1 in value for each 200 points... so 80,000 points = $400.
I believe the redemption rate for other travel spend is $1 for each 250 points... so 80,000 points = $320.
You could use some combo of that, for example, book an Expedia product approaching $400 in value, then burn off the rest of the points for some other travel spend.

Other than a note that "points must be redeemed in increments of 200 or 250", I don't see where TD actually states the redemption rate for other travel spend.
