is that the GCR offer?

the TD website is still showing 15K + $120 AF but I do see a 25K + FYF offer when i click thru the GCR one

here is the updated expiry

To receive the 10,000 Aeroplan Miles Bonus ("10,000 Miles Bonus"), you must apply for a TD Aeroplan Visa Infinite Card Account ("Account") by May 8, 2015, be approved, and have $1,000 in Purchases, including your first Purchase, posted to your Account within the first 90 days of Account opening. We reserve the right to limit the number of Accounts opened by and the number of 10,000 Miles Bonus awarded to any one person.

Well, I need your guys' advice now. The offer does say: "If you have opened an Account in the last 6 months, you will not be eligible for this offer. We reserve the right to limit the number of Accounts opened by, and the number of Welcome Bonus Miles awarded to, any one person."

My wife and son had their CIBC cards transferred automatically to this card last summer. Over 6 months ago. In your experience, do you believe they would get their bonus miles for a new app now? Thx for your help with this; I value your collective wisdom.

I don't know how much value my word is on this topic, but here's my experience.

Like your family, ONE of my TD Aero Infinite Visas was also created by a sale from CIBC to TD. I cancelled, or converted all of my 'playing cards' to no-fee TD cards and then applied for another TD AeroInfinite through GCR in Nov, and got all the bonuses. Then for 'fun', a couple of weeks later I applied for another through the RFD cashback offer, and when I spoke to TD reps (two occasions), they both said they saw the welcome offers on my application. I just exceeded the $1K spending on this latest card...the proof will be in the first-statement's pudding, which is due to cycle next week.

Other people's experience may be different. Look both ways before you cross the street.

Looks like "America's Most Convenient Bank" is getting in on the action too. Good for us expats, I think I'll apply for both at the same time just to mess with Aeroplan.


http://www.tdbank.com/personalcreditcard/aeroplan.html
  • Earn 25,000 bonus miles when you spend $1,000 on net purchases in the first three billing cycles after account opening.
  • Earn 2X Aeroplan Miles per $1 spent on Air Canada net purchases.
  • Earn 1 Aeroplan Mile per $1 spent on all other net purchases.
  • Annual fee waived for first year, then $95 each year thereafter.

Cheers

Anyone know if getting this card helps Canadians (living in Canada) get US credit cards down the road? I am assuming it is a US based credit card in US dollars? Will it help establish US credit history? I know they pull from Transunion but is it the US company linking to the Canadian Transunion for the initial check and then monitored by the US Transunion?

This card came out last month, and was discussed here:
http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/credi...a-version.html

The RFD kids also bantered about it here. Maybe this thread too?

It is completely US based - the pull from the US Transunion. People claim they will do a "cross boarder credit check" but I know first hand that it is not likely. I know someone with a 850 CA credit score and they were denied for the standard TD card despite them claiming they would do a cross boarder check (he was a member of both TD US and TD CA and had a SSN). I met with a banker in the US asking if they would do a cross boarder reference and they told me that in all likelihood I would be denied for any card except a secured line ($500 minimum only returned upon closing the card).

Click on the TDBank.com link and it's obvious they will do Cross Border applications.

If yes, then our cross-border application may be right for you.

Interesting. Although I've never heard of anyone actually being successful with this despite the obvious claim. I'd be curious to hear is anyone was

Thanks JJJ, I can't say that I'm a big fan of RFD, but maybe it warrants more attention...

I had this issue and switched to Internet Explorer and that got me a bit further but still had issues. I ultimately had to get on the phone with a TD rep and they added the RFD code (in this case it would be GCR) to my application and manually submitted it.

It worked fine. I got the annual fee rebated just now and the bonus points.
