Editor's Review

The annual fee of $299 will make you lighter in the wallet, but the perks that come with the AIR MILES® Reserve Credit Card might be all that's weighing on your mind. You can earn up to 3,500 AIR MILES® as a welcome bonus – enough for two select flights. The card also has its share of exclusives. One such exclusive is the annual companion flight benefit where you can receive a companion flight up to a maximum of 1,700 Reward Miles. There’s also AIR MILES FlexFly™, a Reserve exclusive where you can redeem points while accessing additional airlines, destinations, and departure times not on the AIR MILES flight program.  

You can redeem reward miles for flight taxes and fees, get security lane priority access at Pearson International Airport, and other travel advances. You also get seven travel coverages, shopping coverage, and more. Every $10 spent at AIR MILES sponsors or eligible grocery stores, gas stations, and pharmacies gets you a mile while every $15 spent elsewhere gets you a mile too. You can reserve a lot of benefits for yourself with this card.
