Editor's Review

If you want better than gold, you’re going to have to pay up quite a bit. Compared to its gold counterpart ($120), the American Express® AeroplanPlus® Platinum Card comes with an annual fee four times higher ($499). More ideal for you big spenders or avid travellers out there, this card does come with some enticing perks. The 40,000-point sign-up bonus that comes with it can pay for two round-trips to the Caribbean, though you have to spend $3,000 in three months to get the bonus. Your first $25,000 in purchases gets you 1.25 miles per dollar and 1.5 miles per dollar after you hit that mark.

Benefits and Coverage

You can bring along a friend with the card’s partner ticket initiative. When you redeem 15,000 Aeroplan Miles once per year, you get a two-for-one short-haul flight reward. Meanwhile, you get unlimited complimentary visits to the Maple Leaf Lounge for free food and drinks plus priority Air Canada check-in and security lane access at Pearson International Airport. Coverage-wise, you get ten insurance policies when you travel including out of province or country emergency medical insurance. This card carries hefty prices but ensures you travel with no weight on your shoulders.
