Calculate how many Aeroplan Miles you can earn with the AMEX AeroplanPlus Platinum Card and compare the results against top rewards cards.

The American Express AeroplanPlus Platinum Card is a step up from the gold version. It offers a higher flat-rate return of Aeroplan Miles on your spend and it comes with a lot more travel benefits such as priority check-in, priority pass, an annual partner ticket, and benefits when at Pearson Airport. It's a solid choice if you're a frequent traveler and plan on running lots of spend through the card to earn Aeroplan Miles.

Bonus Categories

The American Express AeroplanPlus Platinum Card does not feature any bonus categories and instead earns you 1.25 Aeroplan Miles per $1 spent on all purchases. This is 0.25 Aeroplan Miles per dollar higher than the AeroplanPlus Gold Card which seems small, but will quickly add up if you use this card frequently.

Sign Up Bonus (SUB)

The standard sign up bonus for the AMEX AeroplanPlus Platinum Card is 40,000 Aeroplan Miles after you spend $3,000 in the first three months of having the card. This is a pretty nice sized bonus that can offer a lot of value. It also gives you enough points to use the annual partner ticket benefit.


Annual Fee

The annual fee for the AMEX AeroplanPlus Platinum Card is $499 per year. With the decent earning, nice sign up bonus, and handful of useful benefits, I believe the fee can easily be worth it. You should be able to squeeze a good amount of value out of the Annual Partner Ticket and Priority Pass alone.
