American Express Canada readies new Aeroplan cards
American Express Canada has updated its Aeroplan line of loyalty program credit cards to enhance their travel and lifestyle benefits. The modified program offers up to three times the loyalty points on Air Canada purchases compared to the previous program. The program also offers additional points for hotel stays and car rentals, as well as dining and food delivery purchases. Card holders will also receive benefits such as an eligible free first checked bag, Maple Leaf Lounge access, priority boarding and others. The cards are being launched in conjunction with the relaunch of the Aeroplan program on Nov. 8.
“Whether it is a weekend getaway or a dream vacation, travel has become a big part of so many people's lives,” said Megan McKee, vice-president and general manager of consumer products and partnerships at American Express Canada. “Earning extra points when you use your card on both Air Canada bookings and on everyday categories like take-out, food delivery, or hotel and car rental makes this suite of cards the choice for now and for the future.”
