I applied for TD Aeroplan credit card but haven't received 30k bonus miles offer they advertised. When I contacted then they told me that I was late. I applied only because of that bonus offer and now the card is sitting in my pocket unused.

If you are not using that TD Aeroplan credit card, see if it will be better for your credit to close this card and apply for a different credit card which you would use. You may want to close the card if you do not use it (which is your case), it is a relatively new credit account, it has an annual fee, it has a high interest rate. Before you close your TD Aeroplan credit card, you should pay off any balance and redeem miles, if there are any. If miles are not enough for an award ticket, see if you can redeem them for gift cards from your favorite retailers. Then you can close your card. When you need a credit card for travel, it is always good to apply for a travel rewards credit card. First, you will be able to use such a card everywhere and earn rewards. Second, you will always be able to redeem miles for airfare or cash. Travel credit cards give more flexibility that airline credit cards as they do not restrict you to airlines you can redeem with – you can redeem with any airline.

You will receive 10,000 bonus points after making $1,000 in purchases with your credit card account within 90 days of account opening. This amount of points is not so big and it doesn't guarantee that you will be able to book an award ticket, because the required amount of points depends on the destination you choose, class of the flight, and the ticket prices. You may try to find an award chart on the airline's website to see how many points you will need for a flight. If you want to earn points or miles for your travel, you should choose from travel rewards credit cards. Such cards are...
