Jan 13 Update: American Express AeroplanPlus Reserve becomes Canada's most expensive credit card, up to 20X Air Miles at Shell and more

With only a few months left before the new Visa/MasterCard

News, Tips & Tricks
The biggest news for today is the return of the TD Aeroplan Visa Infinite Card with its First Year Free and 25,000 Aeroplan Mile sign up bonus. Read more about the offer in our earlier blog post.


We also posted our picks for the Top 5 MasterCards to use at Costco now that Costco no longer accepts American Express. Find out more here.

Also new on the credit card front with Aeroplan, is the American Express AeroplanPlus Reserve card. This card was soft launched in December and will enjoy a full fledged launch soon. It is now the most expensive publicly available credit card in the Canadian market with an annual fee of $899. It marks some similar benefitis as The Platinum Card from American Express but has some other benefits that include your first checked bag free but even that benefit is limited to 5 flights per year, a complimentary companion flight within North America (up to 25,000 miles) which is higher than the AeroplanPlus Platinum's short haul flight benefit and an Air Canada Privilege Flight Pass with eight prepaid, one-way flight credits within Air Canada’s North American network. You can find out more about the card here and of course we will provide more indepth analysis of the card soon when we give it the full on Rewards Canada review.
