There are quite a few amazing sign-up bonuses happening right now, all of which I have done myself and for my family in the past couple weeks. Many of these could die at any moment, so you should hop on them now in order to get the points and the benefits!
After spending $1,000 in three months of card ownership, you will get 75,000 Membership Rewards points, which convert into 75,000 Aeroplan or BA Avios points. There is a $699 annual fee, however, in the first year, you will get two $200 travel credits, which can easily be converted into cash. This means your effective annual fee is $299 for 75,000 Membership Rewards points (enough for a round-trip to Europe and Asia!). You also get free lounge access, hotel status, and much more. It’s the best deal we’ve ever seen for this card!
This is another fantastic offer – 75,000 Membership Rewards points, which are convertible 1:1 to Aeroplan or BA Avios, after having spent $5,000 in three months. Anybody who has ever done anything business like can apply, just putting your name down as the business/sole-proprietor. Amex even seems OK with proposed businesses! Now, this card’s annual fee is $399, but it does not have the travel credits like the personal platinum. However, it has most of the other benefits, and you can easily get both cards. Having 150,000 Aeroplan points from getting both cards and only effective spending $698 is an amazing deal. That’s enough points for a business class ticket to Europe, Asia, Africa, India, and more!
