I wanted to draw your attention to something that AeroplanAmerican Express and Air Canada just announced. For those that might not remember, I have proudly been Aeroplan’s Brand Ambassador for two years now. And why would I not be proud? I’ve been a loyal member of this program for TWENTY YEARS!

A reminder if you don’t know how it works, it’s simple: sign up for an Aeroplan number, accumulate miles, and redeem them for practically anything you’d want! Beside redeeming miles for Flights around the world, Car rentals and Hotel stays, Aeroplan also has 12 categories where you can also redeem: Activities & Entertainment, Fashion & Accessories, Eco-Friendly, Electronics, Gift Cards & Ideas, Health & Wellness, Home & Garden, Luggage & Totes, Media & More, Sports & Outdoors, Travel & Getaways and Money Can’t Buy.

Aeroplan recently announced their new American Express card called the American Express AeroplanPlus Reserve Card.

This Card in particular is geared toward frequent travelers who value freedom and flexibility, and who are seeking a card to help deliver awesome, premium experiences.

Aeroplan and American Express also tailored this product toward card members who desire an exceptional end-to-end travel experience – but may not necessarily travel enough to achieve certain levels of status or distinction.


Some benefits and features of the new Card include:
