April 24 Update: Earn 5x Aeroplan miles at Amazon.ca + enter to win an Amazon gift card, new Centurion Lounges coming to DEN & LAX

The Aeroplan relationship with Amazon.ca via
the Aeroplan eStore officially launched today. True its not the first
time you can earn points or cash back for Amazon.ca purchases but for
many Aeroplan die hards this is great news as Amazon has become common
place for many people for their day to day shopping. So being able to
earn Aeroplan miles for those purchases is awesome and what is even more
awesome is that the first week of this relationship sees a bonus of 5x
miles for all Amazon.ca purchases! And if you miss out on the 5x there
will be a 2x miles offer from May 1 to May 11. Find out more here!

And if you missed it we teamed up with Aeroplan to celebrate the
launch today with a contest where you can win a $100 Amazon.ca gift
card. Be sure to enter the contest here.

 If you travel to/from or via some of the bigger U.S. gateways and have The Platinum Card from American Express or are lucky enough to hold a Centurion card you can get access to American Express’ Centurion lounges.
Two new lounges are being added to ever growing list of lounges, the
first announced earlier this month will be in Denver and the second will
the much awaited lounge in Los Angeles. Both lounges are slated to open
in 2019. My only issue, is that with so many Platinum cardholders is
lounge overcrowding. Earlier this month the Rewards Canada family went
into the Centurion Lounge in San Francisco and the place was packed! We
managed to grab a table but then the wait for drinks was insane thanks
to only one bartender and dozens of people waiting to get their drinks.
We packed up and left the lounge as it wasn’t enjoyable – in fact we
found a nice quiet spot in Terminal G that was more comfortable and
relaxing. Yes we didn’t have free food or drinks but the sanity was much
appreciated. Anyways, these lounges are a boon if you do visit them
during a less busy time! (Source American Express & Doctor of Credit)

Speaking of The Platinum Card from American Express, Rewards
Canada reader Ben S. asked if Amex has any plans on making the physical
card a metal card like the members in the U.S. have. Here is Amex
Canada’s response:

As of now, the change to the metal Card is only available to Platinum Cardmembers in the US.

Too bad.
