Chefs Gordon Ramsay and Antonio Park with Amex’s David Barnes at this morning’s Amex Cobalt launch event

As we mentioned yesterday, we said Tuesday would be busy and that was strictly due to the launch of the New American Express Cobalt Card!
If you follow us in Twitter and Instagram you’ll have seen our photos
from the launch event but we also had our earlier blog post and the card
has been placed on many of our resource pages. Here is the complete
list of pages where you can find the details of this new card on Rewards

The card will be placed on other pages as well as time allows plus
we’ll need to update several of our Ultimate Credit Card portfolios now
as this card will make those change.

Air Canada reopened its Vancouver International Maple Leaf Lounge following an 18-month renovation and expansion.

Designed by Vancouver-based Gustavson Wylie Architects Inc,
Air Canada’s International Maple Leaf Lounge at YVR measuring 1,250
square meters with seating capacity for 258 customers offers an elegant
space on two levels that showcases contemporary Canadian design and
artwork including:

  • Artwork by Canadian artists Kendall Kendrick (Vancouver) whose creation celebrates westcoast nature, Nicolas Ruel (Montreal) showcasing overseas travel, and Danielle Roy (Montreal)
    from her collection titled “A flower – a human being” creating a
    powerful imagery of urban portraits by uniting people from all walks of
    life with beautiful flowers.
  • Furnishings by Canadian designers Brent Comber (North Vancouver), Birchwood Furniture (Calgary), Nienkamper (Toronto) and Mobilier Modern (Montreal).
  • A business zone featuring a custom crafted work table, by Live Edge Design of Duncan, BC
    created with wood salvaged from a maple tree in the Cowichan Valley
    which had come to the end of its natural life. The wood slabs have gone
    through an extensive kiln drying process, followed by hand finishing,
    ensuring this tree will continue to live on in a new incarnation for
    several decades.
  • Hot and cold dining options, including a feature salad by celebrated Vancouver Chef David Hawksworth, a chef’s station for individually prepared dishes, along with wines from Canada and from around the world.
  • The business zone is equipped with flat screen desktop computers
    for customers’ use, and RICOH colour printing and scanning.
    Complementary wi-fi and conveniently located power sources are available
    throughout the lounge.
  • Spa-inspired shower rooms with rain shower heads, a Samsung TV zone, a VIP room and a quiet zone with reclining lounge seating.
