Are you a big fan of the AIR MILES program? This travel option offers a solid sign up bonus and earning rate, complete with built-in travel insurance - without an annual fee. Shoppers will earn one AIR MILE per $15 spent on the card at eligible retailers (20 MILES are earned on all other purchases). This card also comes complete with American Express's enviable Front of the Line benefits and World Class Services - a great value for a card that does not charge a fee.
