RateSupermarket.ca's Review

If you spend a lot of time in airports, then you want a card that is going to make travelling a more seamless and luxurious experience. With access to hundreds of lounges, priority airport security checks, and extensive travel insurance benefits, the American Express AeroplanPlus Platinum Card is a phenomenal choice for travellers. However, it comes at a price; with an annual fee of $499, this is certainly not the most budget-friendly card on the market. That said, many cardholders report the once-a-year option to bring a friend on a trip with you for free makes it worth it.
