Chase Increases Waitlist Bonus for Aeroplan Credit Card

Advertiser Disclosure Editorial Disclosure

Chase has launched a new bonus offer for anyone joining the waitlist for the upcoming Chase and Air Canada Aeroplan credit card. Anyone joining the card’s waitlist (and subsequently getting approved for the card) will earn 10,000 Aeroplan points over the standard welcome offer, plus ten eUpgrade credits.

Chase Launches New Waitlist Offer for New Air Canada Aeroplan Credit Card

Chase created a waitlist for the hotly anticipated new co-branded airline card the banking giant is launching with Air Canada Aeroplan. Initially, the waitlist for the Air Canada credit card from Chase offered 10,000 additional Aeroplan points in addition to the standard welcome bonus as an incentive to join the list and eventually apply for the new card.

Earn 10,000 Bonus Points and ten eUpgrade Credits

Now, Chase is upping the ante with its Air Canada credit card waitlist. Potential applicants joining the Aeroplan waitlist will now receive 10,000 Aeroplan points plus ten eUpgrade credits should they apply for the card on launch and be successfully approved.

While the precise nature of the Aeroplan eUpgrade credits isn’t fully known, Chase states that “(the new credits) will come in handy when combined with the benefits on the new card!” This wording appears to hint that the card will offer a streamlined avenue towards more elite tiers in both Air Canada’s Aeroplan program and in the Star Alliance codeshare program.

Other notable items from the Chase Air Canada waitlist include:

  • The waitlist remains open until November 8, 2021
  • Those that already signed up for the waitlist are automatically eligible for the new eUpgarde credit offer
  • Those on the waitlist must be approved for the card by February 15, 2022, to receive the 10,000-point and ten eUpgrade credit bonus

When Will the Chase Aeroplan Credit Card Launch?

Chase added Air Canada Aeroplan as an Ultimate Rewards transfer partner earlier this year.  The bank also announced a new co-brand partnership with Canada’s leading airline at the same time, with a new credit card set to launch later this year. Previously, TD Bank issued the only U.S.-based credit card with Air Canada: the TD Aeroplan Visa Signature® (no longer open to new applicants).
