Card Overview

The Aeroplan® Credit Card will help you earn points for an Air Canada voyage, or a trip with any of the 45 airline partners. You get to enjoy some great travel benefits such as 25k Elite status, a credit for Global Entry, TSA Precheck, or Nexus, a free first checked bag, trip cancellation/trip delay insurance, and more (details below). Plus, in early 2022, Chase will add a great benefit that will allow you to use your Aeroplan rewards to offset purchases for any airline ticket booked on any airline at a rate of 1.25 cents per point (USD)!

Card-Smart Tips & Advice
  • Chase 5/24 rule: Chase will decline an applicant that has opened 5 or more cards (other issuers included) in the past 24 months. Hence, 5/24 rule
  • Max cards: You can get approved for up to 2 Chase credit cards in 30 days. Business cards and personal cards are counted separately
  • Apply for two cards: If you apply for one Chase card and get approved, it is recommended to apply for a second card since Chase is very good about approving for two cards, even within the same day. If the first application is still pending, wait for it to be approved before you apply for a second card
  • Chase often declines consumers that currently have any Chase Freedom Credit Card
  • Credit bureau: Chase Bank will usually pull your Experian credit report
  • Combining same-day credit inquiries: Some data points suggest that credit inquiries for all Personal Chase cards for same-day applications will be combined; also, credit inquiries for all Business Chase cards for same-day applications will be combined. Credit inquiries for Personal and Business card applications will not be combined. More recent data points suggest that Chase credit inquiries will not be combined even for two Personal or two Business cards for same-day applications
  • Check application status: You can check your application status at Chase.com  / Customer Center / Check my app status or call 1 888 338 2586
  • Reconsideration: If you get declined then you can call 1 888 609 7805 to be reconsidered
  • Quickest way to get my card: You will be able to add your new card to your mobile wallet immediately after you get approved (it can sometimes take up to an hour for it to show up in your online login). You can also request Chase to overnight your physical card by calling Chase customer service.
