Editor's Review

With the AIR MILES® Platinum Credit Card, you get more for less when travelling. You have the flexibility to purchase the things you want and reap the rewards. New cardholders get a sign-up bonus containing 1,700 AIR MILES when you charge $1,500 of purchases to your credit card within the first three months. You can book a flight with those miles too.

You can earn one mile for every $10 you spend at AIR MILES® sponsors as well as other eligible gas stations, grocery stores, and drug stores nationwide. The $120 annual fee won't offset your redemption value too much, and there's also a balance transfer rate of 1.99% within the first six months for new cardholders. There are over 1,000 rewards to choose from when redeeming your points, either through cash rewards (restaurants, movie tickets) or dream rewards (travel perks, events and more). The platinum credit card also comes with car rental theft and damage insurance, travel accident insurance totalling $100,000, and shopping coverage. And, you get advances for special entertainment experiences and travel offers. It's a quality AIR MILES card that you don't have to spend excessive amounts to benefit from.
