The following do not qualify as purchases: cash advances, interest, fees, balance transfers, payments or Convenience Cheques or Aeroplan Miles redemptions. It may take up to several business days for purchases to be posted to your account. Bonus miles will be awarded to the primary cardholder on the first monthly statement after the qualifying purchase(s) are posted to the account. Card account must be open and in good standing at the time the Aeroplan Miles are awarded. Offer applies to newly approved card accounts only; transfers from an existing CIBC credit card to a CIBC Aerogold Visa Card for Business are excluded. Offer and bonus miles are non-transferable. Offer may be revoked if you appear to be manipulating or abusing it, or are engaged in any suspicious or fraudulent activity, as determined by CIBC in its sole discretion. Offer may be withdrawn or changed without notice at any time.
2 20,000 miles are enough for a short-haul Classic Flight Reward within Canada or between Canada and the continental U.S. in economy class. For complete information about mileage levels for Flight Rewards, visit the Aeroplan flight reward chart.
3 Insurance coverage(s) included with CIBC credit cards is underwritten by Royal & Sun Alliance Insurance Company of Canada (RSA). Different cards may 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 our Agreements and Insurance page 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 and 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. Certain RSA coverage(s) 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.
4 In Canada, the annual fee may be a tax deductible business expense. Please consult a tax professional.
5 The current annual interest rate for purchases is set at either RDS%rate.VSASB.rate(null,null,7,null)(#O2#)%, 15.99% or 18.99% and the current annual interest rate for cash advances, balance transfers and CIBC Convenience Cheques is set at either 14.5%, 17.5% or 21.5%, all based on your personal credit bureau and other information at the time your application is processed. Interest rates will change from time to time on at least 30 days prior notice to the primary cardholder.
6 CIBC guarantees that you will not lose your Aeroplan Miles due to 12 months of account inactivity. Aeroplan rules require at least one accumulation or redemption transaction every 12 months in an Aeroplan Account or the Aeroplan Miles will expire. CIBC has ensured that this doesn't happen to the one Aeroplan account which is connected to a CIBC Aerogold Visa Card for Business account and which receives all Aeroplan Miles earned by cardholders on that credit card account, provided the account is in good standing. Visit aeroplan.com for the full terms and conditions of the Aeroplan Program.

This bonus Aeroplan Miles offer is only available on the first $80,000 in net annual card purchases on your account (meaning all card purchases by all cardholders, at any type of merchant). The $80,000 limit will reset to zero after the day your December statement is printed. Terms, conditions and eligible merchant categories may change without notice.
