$25 Sign Up Bonus with AC Conversion

The last time I wrote about this card, it ended up being a very messy post with all the updates. Today, I will write up a cleaner version of it.

CIBC’s Air Canada AC Conversion Visa Prepaid Card is currently running a $25 Welcome Reward Credit if you preload between $500 and $2,999 in one or more of the foreign currencies before March 20, 2017. That’s a pretty sweet deal, so now is as good a time as any to get your card, if you haven’t already.
