Bonus Categories

The American Express Aeroplan Card features three bonus categories which are Air Canada, Air Canada Vacations, and dining purchases. There's no limit to the amount of bonus Aeroplan Miles you can earn spending in these categories and no limit to the amount of Aeroplan Miles you can earn with the card overall.

  • 2x Air Canada
  • 2x Air Canada Vacations
  • 1.5x Dining
    • Includes restaurant, fast food, coffee shop and drinking establishments in Canada, and delivery of food in Canada as a primary business (not groceries).
  • 1x Everything Else

Perks & Benefits

The American Express Aeroplan Card comes loaded with a nice amount of travel benefits for anyone that enjoys flying Air Canada.

These benefits are available to supplementary cardmembers (authorized users) who have an Aeroplan Card. Aeroplan No Fee Cards will not receive these benefits.

Sign Up Bonus (SUB)

The sign up bonus for the card is not currently listed, but you can earn a waitlist bonus of 5,000 Aeroplan Points. This requires you to go to the American Express page to sign up and be notified about the new Aeroplan credit cards before and after they have been released. The waitlist bonus is on top of whatever the sign up bonus will be.

Fees & Income Requirements

Annual Fee

The annual fee for the American Express Aeroplan Card is $120. In my opinion, this is a great pricing point considering the amount of benefits that the card offers. Depending on your status, the savings from the checked bag free benefit could cover the cost of the annual fee alone.

Authorized User Fee

The authorized user fee for the American Express Aeroplan Card is $50 for each additional Aeroplan card. You can also add an additional Aeroplan No Fee Card if you want the additional cardholders to just be able to earn points and not experience the few extra benefits that comes with the $50 fee. If you have friends or family that can put a decent amount of spend through the card, adding them can help you build up your Aeroplan Miles faster.

Foreign Transaction Fee

The foreign conversion rate for the American Express Aeroplan Card isn't listed, but my guess is that it's 2.5% like most other cards.

Income Requirements

There's no listed income requirements for the American Express Aeroplan Card.
