Another small American Express Cobalt Card Multipliers update. This one comes from us as we enjoyed takeout from Flores and Pine
a relatively new restaurant in Calgary that is highly acclaimed.

codes properly as a 5x points merchant and not only that it falls under
Amex’s current Shop Small promotion so I was credited $5 for the
purchase made there. See all the confirmed American Express Cobalt Multipliers here and learn more about Amex’s Shop Small promotion here.

And speaking of Amex’s Shop Small promotion –
another merchant that surprised me a Shop Small merchant was Alberta’s
Hospital Home Lottery. They are one of the few lotteries that accepts
American Express and after buying my tickets for it I
received a $5 Shop Small credit with my Platinum Card.

This week’s online shopping bonus for Shoppers Drug Mart is 40,000 bonus PC Optimum Points when you spend $125 or more. This offer is good for today and tomorrow. Find out more here.
