Another day another Amex Offer. Today we see the return of an offer for Casper. I received this on offer my Platinum Card:

  • Spend at least $1,250 in qualifying purchases using your registered Card at by 17/02/2021 and earn a one-time $200 statement credit.

You can find this offer and many more on our Guide to American Express Canada ‘Amex Offers’

If you are planning of flying American Airlines,
even if it may once and never again make sure you join their AAdvantage
program for that flight. The reason why is the airline now provides
American AAdvantage members slightly better preferred boarding.
Non-elite members will all receive Group 6 boarding now which places
these people ahead of Groups 7 to 9. (Source One Mile at a Time)

A couple of days ago I let you know that The Black Sheep Fine Foods and Patisserie in Calgary counted as 5x multiplier for the American Express Cobalt Card. I tried an online order with them (as you can tell they are our favourite bakery in YYC) and used my Platinum Card
this time as I wanted to see if it would code as 3x points for dining.
That transaction has posted and I can confirm the purchase did earn 3x
points so this bakery counts even as dining for the Platinum Card! So I
can confirm both in store and online purchases with them will earn the
multipliers off the cards! You can find this and many more confirmed
multipler locations from across Canada and the world on our page here. You can order from Black Sheep online as well
