Our Rating:
Annual Fee Interest Rate Balance Transfer Cash Advance Credit Score Good: -- I've had a credit card, or loan for 6+ years. I've had good credit for the last 7 years (no bankruptcies or no defaults on credit as a result of failing to pay debts back to creditors). I haven't opened a new credit card account, loan, or line of credit in the last nine months. I've made the minimum payments on my existing credit cards for the past three months. Rewards Are all rewards created equal? -- From points, to miles, to cash back - how do you know how much you're really getting? To help you find the best rewards card, we've created the Your Reward Return, a rate that lets you know the rate of return from your spending into rewards so that you can compare like for like. Now that's wise thinking!

RateSupermarket.ca's Review

The American Express AeroplanPlus Gold Card offers cardholders a number of premium travel rewards including a special introductory offer that will cover the cost of a flight almost anywhere in North America. This card allows cardholders to collect points quickly with a 1:1 ration of points collected to dollars charged for the first $10,000, and 1.25 points for any $1 charged after that annually. By accelerating points, cardholders can travel sooner. However, this card is limited to Air Canada and Star Alliance Member Airlines, meaning it does not have the same flexibility as other cards in the Amex family.
