Time to cancel Platinum I think

I've been with Amex for over 40 years, and the majority of that with the Canadian Plat, but this may require a rethink. Essentially have taken away 0.25 points/dollar on most purchases while...

The Fairmont benefit was one of the very best things offered for Canadian Amex Plat. Going to be loads of cancellations and downgrades of Amex cards unless something is added to try to replace it....

Bye Bye TD

I've been waiting to cancel the TD Visa Infinite ever since the switch from CIBC and did so today. They offered a measly 10K AP miles to stay, which I told them made no sense. That was all they would...

My mistaken amenity story is from many years ago, 1977 to be exact, at the Banff Springs Hotel. I was a callow youth who had just started working for a multinational oil company in Calgary and all of...

Westin Downtown LA

Recently attended Anime Expo in LA with Little Miss OhCanada at the convention rate. Booked a double (for obvious reasons) but when we showed up they had only kings available. After some hemming and...

The Worst Ever

Without a doubt this is the worst snafu ever perpetuated by a "marketing" company. The existence of, and qualification criteria for, the bonus was not communicated (so no-one changed their behavior,...

I have had the Plat for many years and got the AeroPlat free when it came out. It was explicitly promised to be a free card as long as I had the Plat. I would be very very unhappy if Amex tried to...

Acceptance is generally good in YYZ. Amex has a recent promotion where they give you a $25 credit for using it at stores near where you live. Many common merchants like Metro, Starbucks, Rexall,...

Follow-up call

I received a call from Amex yesterday asking why I did not accept their offer to take a Black Card. We had a nice chat - I told the rep that I just didn't see the benefit for me in stepping up from...

We've stayed here a couple of times on trips to and from Florida. Rooms very impressive for a 4 Points, although the location is average at best. Restaurant has always been deserted when we have been...

Where is the beef?

I have received an invite as well but just can't see the justification. Clearly the Canadian Centurion is not as good a value as the US version, and you have to have a certain travel and shopping...

Amex is OK

It's odd to me to see all the comments about not being able to use Amex. I have an Amex Plat and an AeroPlat and my wife and I do the vast majority of our spending ($150K+ annually) on the Plat card....

Too much Amex

While the replacement of the MBNA card is good news (I really hated dealing with them) I think this creates a problem for many who already hold Amex cards. I am a long time Amex Plat cardholder and...

It's funny you should mention that, because the only time I've ever used the Amex Plat travel insurance was for a bogus claim by Hertz in Germany. Amex took care of it very professionally.
