For the past year or so, RBC® has offered very impressive welcome bonuses on its trio of Avion personal credit cards: the RBC® Avion Visa Infinite†, RBC® Avion Visa Platinum†, and the RBC® Avion Visa Infinite Privilege†.
As a reminder, there are currently record-high welcome bonuses for up to 55,000 RBC® Avion points† on all three cards.
Fortunately, these great offers are available until November 27, 2023, which leaves just over a month to take advantage of these sizeable bonuses.
RBC® Avion Visa Infinite†: Up to 55,000 Avion Points†!
Historically, the standard offer on the RBC® Avion Visa Infinite† is for 15,000 RBC® Avion points† upon first purchase.
However, the current offer for this card matches the record-high welcome bonus for up to 55,000 Avion points†, which is broken down as follows:
- Earn 35,000 RBC® Avion points† upon approval
- Earn 20,000 RBC® Avion points† upon spending $5,000 in the first six months
We value RBC® Avion points† at 2 cents apiece, given their flexibility and frequent transfer bonuses to airline loyalty programs.
Using this valuation, we’d estimate that the welcome bonus of 55,000 RBC® Avion points† is worth at least $1,100. Subtract the $120 annual fee from that, and the overall value of the offer is at least $980, which is certainly worth considering.
If you factor in the minimum spending requirement of $5,000 in the first six months, you’d earn at least 5,000 more RBC® Avion points†, which brings the total first-year value up to $1,080, using our valuation.
