Aeroplan is offering its Chase credit cardholders 10x points this summer when using the card to make purchases overseas – a great return for a card that doesn’t have foreign transaction fees.
- Earn 10x points on international purchases when paying with the Chase Aeroplan card.
- You will earn 10 points total for each $1 spent up to $1,500 in qualifying international purchases from 07/01/2022 to 09/30/2022. That’s an additional 7 points on top of the 3 points you already earn on dining at restaurants, grocery stores, and purchases made directly with Air Canada and an additional 9 points on top of the 1 point you already earn on all other purchases.
- Please note that if you have more than one promotional offer on the same types of purchases, you will earn the additional points for all promotions, but because you will only earn base points on those purchases once through your Chase Aeroplan credit card you will only earn the total shown for one promotion.
- Qualifying international purchases include purchases made at merchants located outside the 50 United States, the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and United States military installations.
- Merchants who accept Mastercard credit cards are assigned a merchant location determined by the merchant or its processor in accordance with Mastercard procedures. Chase does not determine whether a merchant has been assigned a qualifying location. Certain purchases made with a merchant that appears to be in a qualifying international location, including purchases made online and for some kinds of travel, may not qualify if the merchant has been assigned a different location with Mastercard.
- Purchases made through third‑party payment accounts, or digital wallets (like Apple Pay, Google Pay or PayPal), or through third parties are excluded from this offer. Purchases do not include balance transfers, cash advances, travelers checks, foreign currency, money orders, wire transfers or similar cash‑like transactions, lottery tickets, casino gaming chips, race track wagers or similar betting transactions, any checks that access your account, interest, unauthorized or fraudulent charges, and fees of any kind, including an annual fee, if applicable.
- Purchases must post to your account by the last day of the promotional period to qualify. Sometimes a merchant will charge your card on a date after you make a purchase, and as a result the purchase may not post to your account until after the last day of the promotional period.
- Please allow up to 8 weeks after qualifying purchases post to your account for points to post to your account.
- To qualify for this bonus offer, account must be open and not in default at the time of fulfillment.
- This bonus offer is non‑transferable and applies only to the account of the primary cardmember referenced in this offer.
Unless you’re working on the welcome offer for a new credit card, earning 10x Aeroplan points will be the best return you get on overseas spending this summer.
As mentioned earlier, the Aeroplan card doesn’t charge foreign transaction fees, so it’s not like Chase is giving with one hand and taking with the other.
This offer should be open to all cardholders with no registration required.
Would gift card spending for this likely get clawed back?
I’m wondering if this will stack with the Chase spending offer of 5x on gas, grocery, and home improvement, up to $1500 spend. I am hoping that international groceries would be 12x or 15x rather than just 10x, though probably neither bonus counts toward the 30k points for status extension (though the “base” 3x for grocery is supposed to).
That’s a pretty sweet – and unusual – offer.Hopefully, other cards will follow suit. Now if only Chase would show my two 50K signup certificates…
How long have you been waiting? My statement just cut and I’m awaiting 110,000 miles.
About a week and a half. I messaged Chase and they said 6-8 weeks after the $4,000 posted as being charged. Frankly, I’d expected much better from Chase’s IT but we’ll see.
Im still waiting on my 10K bonus for pre-signing up for the card
I had that issue too and I actually had to call them and open a case to get the bonus credited.
It isnt easily located but once i logged in you have to go to account benefits, but my 10k bonus points for pre-registration are nowhere to be found
Darn. So close. I’m almost done with my bonus spend for my shiny new Aer Lingus card and when I first read this, I was thinking of that card. Since I’m heading to Finland next week (thank you FM for the United sale which I used to snag this biz seat), I was really psyched for the whole 10 seconds before I realized that Aer Lingus is not the same as Aeroplan! C’est la vie. I’m sure I’ll find a good card or two for my Finnish expenses. (Staying at the Hilton Helsinki Strand on points, so not a lot of hotel expenses.)
I’m planning to use this in Canada – weird, but should work.
[…] Hat tip to FM […]
Did you get some kind of email about this? I have a Chase Aeroplan card but haven’t heard anything about this. Sounds great…lines up with some of my plans.
I got an email on this last week, alas right as my one international trip within the offer dates was ending (and I didn’t have my Aeroplan card with me).
I guess I’m not special enough. Nada zippo zilch empty a bagel a mayan zero

It came as a press release from Air Canada. It seems like all US cardholders are automatically enrolled in this offer, but they didn’t provide a landing page unfortunately.
strange…only some emails…ok, i’ll take your word for it!
using my Chase Aeroplan for some car rentals anyway. I guess it will be my go to card for most of the trip!
maybe in the next statement a message will appear about this?
I haven’t received an email about this either. Is there a link to the press release or any other page on the Chase website about this? Would like to at least have a place to reference in case I need to reach out to Chase after the promo in case the bonus points don’t post.
Separately, does anyone know how these bonus points will interact with the “earn 30K points by November to keep your elite status” promo? i.e. If I spend $1.5K abroad and earn 15K points from this promo, will this get me halfway there? Thanks!
