I’ve been on the look for some good credit card offers for all my Canadian readers.  Here is an offer from American Express for the AeroplanPlus Platinum Card that I think is worth looking at.  It is not what I like to call the “pack of gum” offer (no min. spend & no annual fee – as sweet as they come) but it does offer quite a great deal of benefits.


  • When you apply by March 16, 2012, you can receive 25,000 Bonus Aeroplan Miles after your first use of the Card, plus earn 25,000 Bonus Aeroplan Miles after you spend $1,000 in your first three months of Card membership14. That’s enough for a roundtrip flight reward FOR TWO  to almost anywhere in North America!±
  • Enjoy a 2-for-1 short-haul flight rewardø when you redeem 15,000 Aeroplan Miles with the Partner Ticket2 benefit
  • Earn 1.25 Aeroplan Miles for every $1 in Card purchases up to $25,0004
  • Earn 1.5 Aeroplan Miles for every $1 in Card purchases over $25,000 annually15
  • Access Air Canada Executive Class®**/Executive First®** Priority Check-in16
  • Relax in Maple Leaf™* Lounges and Arrivals Lounges17
  • Receive complimentary Priority Pass Membership for access to 600 VIP airport lounges18
  • Receive complimentary Hertz Rent-A-Car #1 Club Gold Membership Class upgrades19
  • Receive exceptional travel-related insurance benefits, including Trip Interruption8† and Trip Cancellation Insurances8†, as well as Car Rental Theft and Damage Insurance7†
  • $499 annual fee*

As you can see, some really nice card benefits for the annual fee.  For some the fee is too high but for others you can really see the value outweighs the fee.  The 1.25 miles for every dollar is nice.  The lounge access and the 2 for 1 short-haul flight really add to the value.

Just thinking of you Canadians today!  I’ll keep on the look for you!  You are in my thoughts!
