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.

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.
