The following do not qualify as purchases: cash advances, interest, fees, balance transfers, payments, regular CIBC Convenience Cheques or Aventura Point redemptions. It may take up to several business days for purchases to be posted to your account.

Offer applies to newly approved card accounts only; transfers from an existing CIBC credit card to a CIBC Aventura Gold Visa Card are excluded. Offer and bonus points are non-transferable.

10 Insurance coverage(s) included with CIBC credit cards are underwritten by Royal & Sun Alliance Insurance Company of Canada (RSA). Different cards will have different coverage(s). To learn about which coverage(s) are included with a specific card, and important information regarding coverage eligibility requirements, benefits, limitations and exclusions, see www.cibc.com/ca/credit-card/agreements-insurance.html and the insurance certificate(s) in your card package. Some insurance coverage(s) require purchase(s), auto rentals, common carrier fares and other trip costs to be charged to the card to activate coverage. Other conditions may also apply. Auto Rental Collision/Loss Damage Insurance (CLDI) is available for automobile rentals of up to 48 days. The full cost of the rental must be charged to the card and the rental agency's Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) or Loss Damage Waiver (LDW) must be declined. CLDI provides coverage up to the actual cash value (ACV) of the rental vehicle as defined in your insurance certificate. Note that some rental agencies may assess their damages at an amount greater than the ACV of the rental vehicle and you may be liable to them for the difference. Before declining the rental agency's CDW or LDW, you should read carefully and compare the terms of the rental agreement, the CLDI insurance certificate in your card package and any other insurance you own to decide which coverage best meets your protection needs. Out-of-Province Emergency Travel Medical Insurance (TMI) covers the primary cardholder, their spouse and dependent children for the first 15 days of a trip if the covered person is age 64 or under.Dependent children must be age 20 or under or a full-time student age 24 or under, unless they have a permanent physical or mental deficiency. TMI may not cover medical procedures performed without pre-approval. TMI and Trip Interruption Insurance may not cover certain pre-existing health/medical conditions. Certain RSA coverages are "excess insurance" (all other sources of insurance and recovery must be exhausted before coverage is available). For more information, call RSA toll-free at 1-866-363-3338 in Canada, continental U.S and Hawaii or collect from elsewhere at 905-403-3338.

12 Interest rates will change from time to time on at least 30 days prior notice to primary cardholders. "Cash" means cash advances, balance transfer and convenience cheques.

13 The primary cardholder may assign and change the Authorized User Spending Limits on the credit card account for any authorized users by contacting CIBC. CIBC may make adjustments to the spending limits any time following a decrease in the credit limit or cash limit of the card. The spending limits for authorized users will be subject to the overall credit limit and cash limit on the credit card account, so the funds available to an authorized user may be less than the spending limit set. An Authorized User Spending Limit will reset monthly, or earlier if requested by the primary cardholder or if a payment on the credit card account is made by the applicable authorized user.
