One of the better promotion available right now is the RBC VISA Infinite Avion card. Normally, this card comes with a $120 annual fee. However, in this latest amazing promotion, the annual fee for the first year has been waived! This means you can earn 25,000 Avion points for free!
Disclaimer: I am not affiliated with RBC. I am simply providing you with information on how to get points and miles much faster than the traditional method.
What can you do with 25,000 Avion points?
One of the biggest benefit to the Avion points is your ability to transfer it to the British Airways Avios program. Every year, they tend to offer a promotion where you can earn between 30-50% transfer bonus points. This is an amazing deal because you can fly several short haul flights for dirt cheap upon redeeming your Avios miles!
There’s a prediction that Avion will have a transfer bonus promotion this coming Spring where you can earn 50% more miles. If that happens, you will have 37,500 British Airways Avios miles as oppose to 25,000. Should the worst case scenario happen where the transfer bonus promotion is only 30%, you will still get a good deal. You’ll then earn 32,500 British Airways miles which you can use to redeem on One World airline carriers.

Great way to redeem Avios miles
Some of the popular Avios miles redemption includes:
- West Coast of USA (Seattle, San Francisco, etc) to Hawaii – 25,000 Avios miles round trip
- Flights between South American countries (they tend to be very expensive but LATAM has great coverage)
- Flights between Asian countries
I’m personally saving my Avios miles to fly between South and Central American countries.
Regardless of your travel style, getting this card will certainly help get you to your favourite destination much sooner!
