† This offer applies to the following eligible cards: CIBC Aventura® Visa Infinite* and CIBC Aventura® Gold Visa* Card. You can qualify for this offer if you apply and are approved for a new eligible card beginning February 1, 2021.
A one-time annual fee rebate for you (the primary cardholder). This offer applies for the first year only. If your application for an eligible card is not approved, you may be considered for another card (as disclosed in your credit card application). If you are approved for that card, this annual fee rebate offer will apply in the amount of the annual fee, if any, of the alternate card. If you qualify, the rebate will be awarded to you and will appear as a credit against the applicable annual fee(s) within two statements. Your new credit card account must be open and in good standing at time the rebate is awarded.
If you apply and are approved for a new eligible card, when you make your first purchase you can receive:
i. A welcome bonus of 15,000 Aventura Points
ii. Additional bonus of 5,000 Aventura Points
To qualify for the additional 1,250 bonus Aventura Points for each statement period, you must have at least $1,000 in net purchases posted to your account by the last day of each statement period. Purchases made during a statement period but posted after the end of that statement period will not count towards eligible spend for that month. If this occurs, that purchase will count towards eligible spend for the next statement period. For example, if your statement period is from November 8 to December 7, a purchase made on December 7 (transaction date) that is posted on December 8th (posting date) will not count for eligible spend for the December statement period. In this case, that purchase will count towards spend in the January statement period. If the November 8 to December 7 period was your 12th statement period, then the purchase made on December 7 and posted on December 8 would not count toward this offer.
Offer applies to newly approved card accounts only; transfers from an existing CIBC credit card to a CIBC Aventura® Visa Infinite* Card or CIBC Aventura® Gold Visa* Card are excluded. Card account must be open and in good standing at the time the bonus Aventura Points are awarded.

It may take up to several business days for purchases to be posted to your account. This offer is not transferable. This offer may be withdrawn or changed without prior notice at any time. This 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.
