RateSupermarket.ca's Review

As far as AMEX cards go, the American Express AIR MILES Platinum Credit Card is a good bet for AIR MILES collectors, but the rewards do not take you as far as other cards. Unlike other Amex cards that offer a 1:1 dollar spent to points awards ratio, your money is going to have to work a lot harder to achieve the same results. That said, while this card may not have all the bells and whistles of other AMEX cards, there are still a number of benefits including partial travel insurance, more than 1,000 redemption options, and a relatively low annual fee.
