Advantex®2 CIBC Bonus Rewards — Frequently Asked Questions
All CIBC rewards credit cards (with an annual fee) come with CIBC Bonus Rewards. This includes all of our travel card programs (including our CIBC Gold Visa and CIBC Vacationgold Visa) and all of our cash back cards (except the classic no-fee CIBC Dividend Visa Card)
CIBC Bonus Rewards is an automatic benefit for eligible cardholders — from the moment you activate your card, you will earn CIBC Bonus Rewards each and every time you make eligible purchases at participating merchants.
CIBC Bonus Rewards comes with no fees, hidden costs or strings attached — it's included on all eligible CIBC credit cards.
The Bonus Rewards you earn are based on the rewards program associated with your eligible CIBC credit card. Bonus Rewards earned are based upon the regular earn rate under your rewards program, and is a generic term we use to describe the points, miles, vacation credits, cashback or other rewards offered across all eligible CIBC credit cards. The Bonus Rewards earn rate depends on the regular earn rate under your rewards program, and varies based on the eligible CIBC credit card you use and the merchant category where your purchases are made.

This varies by CIBC credit card type and merchant category. As an example, if you are dining at one of our premium dining establishments using your Aventura%reg; Visa Infinite* Card, a $200 purchase (inclusive of tip and taxes) will earn you 200 Aventura Points under the Aventura rewards program, and 400 Bonus Rewards, for total earning of 600 Aventura Points. Considering short haul flights start at 10,000 Aventura Points, enjoying your nights out on the town can get you flying out of town faster.
Simply pay your bill at any of the participating establishments using your eligible CIBC credit card. For every dollar spent, you'll earn Bonus Rewards under the CIBC Bonus Rewards programs. These rewards will appear on your credit card account statement.
You can use your CIBC credit card at hundreds of participating restaurants, hotels, inns, spas, golf courses or retail locations (if applicable) located across Canada.
