50,000 Aeroplan Points for $500 with American Express

WHAT: Another American Express card is offering a decent deal. The American Express Aeroplan Plus Platinum Card comes with 50,000 bonus points after spending $1000 in first three months BUT the fee is $500.

KNOW: It’s a hefty fee but if you’re up to the task, it is worth it. Essentially, for $500, you’re getting enough points to book a return trip to central America or two round-trips anywhere in the continental U.S.A or Canada. PLUS you get access to Maple Leaf lounges, line priority with Air Canada and 2-for-1 pass on a 15,000 point redemption. That means if you book a 15,000 Aeroplan point flight (Ex: Calgary to Portland, Oregon, Calgary to Vancouver, Toronto to Montreal, etc) you can take a guest for free (except taxes).

Expires: August 31, 2013.
