The number of people who carry an American Express card and the number of stores who accept them seems to be growing and for good reason…

Amex cards have some of the highest earn rates, the coolest perks, and often come out on top in the travel/rewards category.

American Express knows how to start you off on the right foot by giving you some of the best sign up bonuses out there.

It’s not hard to see the Amex appeal, with cards like the coming out on top in a number of “Best of” credit card categories making it the highest rated credit card in Canada.

Some benefits of top Amex cards include:

  • Flexible points that can be used and transferred in a number of different ways
  • Front of the Line Advanced Access, Reserved Tickets, and E-Updates
  • The Hotel Collection from American Express
  • Premium customer service
  • 24/7 Concierge service

Plus, even with the best, most premium, credit card from American Express, there’s no minimum income requirement. That makes it much easier for anyone with good credit to qualify.

The creditcardGenius algorithm calculates an estimated dollar value for all rewards and bonuses by using a typical point value a person can realistically achieve by redeeming their rewards in a reasonably optimized way. The "Welcome Bonus" is the dollar value obtained by combining of all one-time bonuses available to new cardholders within the first year. To qualify for the full bonus you may need to make purchases, meet minimum spending requirements, or complete special actions. Terms and conditions apply.
