As to the match rules, the winner will be based on three categories; which earn more rewards, travel features, and any bonus features.
Which card earns more rewards?
The TD First Class Travel Visa Infinite is among the new line of travel visa’ introduced by TD and this is the best they offer giving you 3 TD Points with every $1 you spend. Once you reach 10,000 TD points you can begin redeeming the rewards. Also, you are able to earn 9 TD points – triple the rewards – for every $1 when you book through the TD Visa Travel Rewards Centre.
Now the CIBC Aventura Visa Infinite gives you 1 Aventura point for every $1 you spend and 1.5 Aventura points for every $1 you spend at gas stations, grocery and drug stores. You can convert Aventura points into Aeroplan Miles in which 1 Aventura Point = 1 Aeroplan Mile.
Now for this category it is a hard to choose just one, some people would want the Aeroplan Miles while others are satisfied with the TD points. I will have to say it is a draw so far; onto the next test.
What are the travel features on these credit cards?
The travel features for the TD First Class Travel Visa includes everything the CIBC Aventura Visa Infinite offers such as lost baggage insurance, auto rental collision insurance, etc. However the CIBC Aventura Visa Infinite wins due to the fact it offers more days of coverage for its travel medical insurance; that is to say it offers 15 days for travellers age 64 and under, compared to 8 days by the TD First Class Travel Visa.
What bonuses are available?
The bonuses for both cards are you receive bonus reward points when you make receive the card. For the TD First Class Travel Visa Infinite you get 20,000 TD Points and the CIBC Aventura Visa Infinite you receive 15,000 Aventura Points. Seeing as both cards get bonus points it does make the decision harder; but seeing as 20,000 TD Points = $100 off the cost of travel purchases compared to 15,000 Aventura Points = $150. Aventura wins by $50 helping you save more on your flight.
Now with the facts at hand it can be safely said that it is a draw right now, but that is not how things are done here. We will decide on a winner, the winner for today’s match is the…CIBC Aventura Visa Infinite. If you are wondering why they won it was the Aeroplan Mile conversion. More people use it and would be swayed to getting the card because of that option. There you have it Match 2 is complete, until next time; where the next match will surely shock you.
The travel features for the CIBC Aventura Visa Infinite has been updated, making it win the category.
