There's a big difference in the Membership Rewards Points program when it comes to Canadian based members. Point redemptions, transfer partners, and AMEX Canada credit cards all operate differently. While this site primarily focuses on U.S.-based redemptions, Canadian based residents can use the calculators below to compare AMEX Canada credit cards side by side (even against their U.S. counterparts) and calculate the cash value of each card based on your spend. While USD and CAD are relatively close in value, do note that these calculators do not convert currency. So be aware of the point values you give to American Express Membership Rewards Points.
