Chase Partners With Air Canada, Will Offer Cobranded Credit Card & Point Transfers

Today Chase & Air Canada have announced a partnership that will see a cobranded Chase Air Canada credit card, in addition you’ll be able to transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards points to Air Canada. The cobranded card will run on the Mastercard payments network. Unfortunately these won’t launch until late 2021. Previously Air Canada had a co-branded card with TD Bank.

It’s weird they’re announcing it so far in advance… almost like they’re giving people time to garden their way below 5/24

Perfect timing! I’m, hopefully, going to move to Toronto late next year and I was concerned about the lack of options for earning/redemption.

Maybe by late 2021 we’ll be allowed in Canada.

Game changer to us. It changes our original plan to liquidate most our UR pts thru PYB. Now would leave 250 to 300K in account just for the Aeroplan transfer. UR is so much easier to earn than Membership Reward. I am very pleased with this new partnership.

Will there be more value than 1.5cpp booking economy?

Interested to hear where you think the sweet spots for aeroplan are? The fuel charges make me prefer Lifemiles for transatlantic..

Aeroplan no longer passes on fuel surcharges

The plan is completely overhauled – no more YQ on any carrier, but added $39 partner booking fee, plus plan changed to distance based. Still, at 60 to 65K one way US-EU on any Star A partner, without YQ, to me is a big plus over UA.

Even before that, you can still find YQ free TATL, such as on Swiss and Scandinavian, with TAP at low or no YQ. Our mini-RTW in Fall of 2019 was on TAP, TK SQ and BR. Zero YQ.

Btw if Canadians get 1 Aero mile per “Canadian” dollar with TD bank Canada then Chase conversion rate should be 1000 UR for 1300 Aero. No?

Fingers crossed: 100K miles sign up bonus. 5/24 rule does not apply…

If you think 5/24 not applying has any chance, you’ll be sorely disappointed.
