I am planning a trip to Canada on Air Canada in three months or so and wonder if it is good for me to apply for a TD Aeroplan credit card to get a sign up bonus and use it for my trip? My credit is excellent but I have never had an airline credit card before. Thanks.

If it is just for one trip, we would not recommend you apply for the TD Aeroplan credit card. Even if you get a bonus offer, you may not be able to use it for an award travel because of seats availability, blackout dates and other restrictions. Better to get a credit card that will allow you to redeem miles even if you decide to travel last minute. And a travel rewards credit card can give you this freedom and flexibility. Since you are looking for a credit card with a sign-up bonus, look at the Barclaycard Arrival Plus™ World Elite MasterCard®. This card has a 50,000 bonus miles offer. To get this offer, you will need to spend $3,000 on purchases in the first 90 days. Ongoing rewards rate is 2 miles per dollar spent. Plus, you will get 5% miles back when you redeem for travel statement credits, that means you will save additional 5% on your award travel. Miles can be redeemed for any airline ticket, provided it is bought with the Arrival Plus card. The card does not charge an annual fee for the first year, but then it will be $89.
