Not worth it for the fees we pay yearly

by Tony on Dec 30, 2021
1.5 out of 5 stars

I was invited by the bank to apply for the card and was invited to transfer the Balance over from other cards with 0 interest for 10 months. When missed payment by two days only they start charging me interest and cash advanced fees from day one of the transfers that’s a steal, also their trip cancellation insurance policy is a scam you have to deal with some insurance in Montreal if your flight is cancelled and it took over a year to get my money back.
CIBC Visa cards are not good any other cards on the market offer the same for free!

Worst customer service ever!

The airline cancelled a flight and would like to be rebooked on another. Have been on hold: first time 1.5 hours, second time 2.5 hours and third time 2 hours. The emailed callback request went unreturned and so have sent in a second request. Tomorrow I will try for 3 hours before carrying on with my day, as that is what looks like needs to happen. I also have an appointment at the bank. These points are bogus! Stay away from CIBC Aventura!

HORRIBLE Customer Service

If you book a flight through CIBC rewards and it gets cancelled, be prepared to spend 3 hours on hold for them to tell you that they will not refund your points and that you are stuck with an airline credit that expires in 6 months time.

Horrible customer service

by Ian M on Jul 15, 2021

To begin with, their travel options are extremely limited. For example, you can only rent a car at some North American airports. If you need a car for a weekend from a local rentals office, which is a 10 min walk from my home, or in Europe or Asia, you are out of luck! You can call, but it will take up to several hours to get to a representative and you cannot browse through all options and prices. Also, I submitted for a refund for Air Transat flights that got cancelled back in June 2020 and it takes forever to get my money, although other travel agents get it done faster. And then it will be 6-8 weeks more to get back my points I have used to make the booking!! The customer service is awful and they hang up on you because "they have no additional information". The collection rate is bad. The access to lounges is useless because they are either closed for COVID or overcrowded. Find a better card.

Trip cancellation

For the first time, I tried to use the benefits of this card for cancelling a trip to the US due to the coronavirus and they told me unless I am sick or a family member is dead I can't use this benefit. By the way, I was on hold for 2 hours and 15 minutes.
