Amex AIR MILES® Platinum Card: A Review

The American Express® AIR MILES® Platinum Credit Card is a great tool to increase your AIR MILES balance. The welcome bonus of 2,000 miles is worth easily $210, more than tripling the $65 annual fee, and making signing up to it a great investment. The possibility to double-dip and earn miles twice will help you get more return on every purchase, and the card’s earning rate of 1 mile for every $10 in purchases is better than what most of AIR MILES’ partners will give you.
In addition, the low annual fee is easily outweighed by a single 4-day car rental, thanks to its embedded insurance coverage. This, along with all its other benefits, make the Amex AIR MILES Platinum a great choice at a low budget.

Where Are American Express Cards Accepted?

Amex acceptance is debated amongst many. There are those in favor and those against admitting that American Express isn’t as widely accepted as other credit card brands. However, very few base their conclusions on anything other than their personal opinions.
In the following post, I’ll show you that Amex acceptance is broader than you think, both in Canada and in other countries. In fact, you’ll see that the brand’s coverage is actually growing thanks to several strategies adopted by American Express that include Amex Maps, the Shop Small program and Take Amex , among others.
