TD Bank launches AAdvantage credit card in Canada

TD Canada Trust has partnered with American Airlines to launch a new credit card linked to the airline's AAdvantage frequent flyer programme, offering Canadian cardholders the option of earning AAdvantage miles on their purchases.

The new card was designed to benefit Canadian consumers who travel regularly to the United States (and beyond). To get new cardholders started on the way to a free flight with American Airlines, the new TD/AAdvantage Platinum Visa Card offers an initial 10,000 AAdvantage Mile bonus the first time the card is used.

Earning points The card allows cardholders to earn 1 AAdvantage Mile for every Can$1 charged to the card, and 2 AAdvantage Miles for every Can$1 for all purchases made with the card through American Airlines.

Card membership is renewed annually, with cardholders receiving a bonus of 2,500 AAdvantage Miles after they renew, which also ensures that their AAdvantage miles never expire.

"Working with TD, we can now give our members in Canada a new opportunity to earn AAdvantage miles," commented Kurt Stache, president of American's AAdvantage programme.

Redeeming miles Miles are redeemable through the AAdvantage programme toward flights on American Airlines, members of the Oneworld Alliance, and other AAdvantage participant airlines (a network of 21 airlines).

Specific benefits of the card include:

  • The flexibility to earn mileage credits in a number of ways through more than 1,000 participating companies;  
  • The ability to redeem miles for travel, upgrades, Admirals Club memberships, vacation packages, hotel stays, golf outings, spa services, and other options;  
  • Special mileage awards such as the Short Hop Award (where, for a limited time, AAdvantage members can claim round-trip-short hop trips for as little as 15,000 miles);  
  • The option to donate miles to charities (such as the Miles for Kids in Need programme, or the Make-A-Wish Foundation).
