American Express + Air Canada team up to offer bonus points and 15% off flights

Just like the CIBC offer that came out last week there is now an offer for American Express Reserve Aeroplan cardmembers to earn bonus points for purchasing Air Canada flights. On top of this there is also a 15% off promo code being sent out to most if not all American Express cardmembers.

The 10x points offer

Those of you who hold the American Express® Aeroplan®* Reserve Card or the American Express® Aeroplan®* Business Reserve Card you can earn a total of 10 points per dollar spent with Air Canada. This works out to receiving a 7 points per dollar bonus as the Reserve cards offer 3 points per dollar spent with Air Canada or Air Canada vacations as their standard earn rate.

The 10x points will be awarded on purchases of up to $750 made by May 19, 2023.

The 15% off discount

If you are an American Express cardmember check your email for a 15% off discount code which can be used for Air Canada flights out Canada to destinations in North America as well as Sun Destinations. The code needs to be used on bookings made by May 19 for travel until Dec 15, 23. The code is valid on Standard, Flex, Comfort, Latitude, Premium Economy lowest, Premium Economy Flexible, Business Class lowest and Business Class Flexible base fares. Amex does state the code is personalized so be sure not to share your code online if you do plan on using it!

I personally received the 15% off Air Canada flights offer for my Platinum Card. However the 15% off appears to have been sent to many American Express cardholders not just Platinum Cards. This is an example of why we always recommend having at least one American Express, one Visa and one Mastercard in your portfolio of cards as there are offers that come out just like this one that are tied into only one of the brands.

Of course, if you do hold one of the Amex Aeroplan Reserve cards you can combine your 15% off code with the 10x points!
