- Sometimes it’s better to use the American Express Cobalt™ Card at a grocery or convenience store to earn 5 Membership Rewards points per dollar (e.g. Amazon.ca gift card purchase) than to use the American Express Cobalt™ Card directly at Amazon!
- Don’t spend money to get points or rebates for things you don’t need!
Here’s an offer you don’t want to miss for Business Platinum Card® from American Express, 10 points per dollar up to $2,500 in Card purchases (that’s up to 25,000 points):
From June 23 to September 23, 2021, you can earn between 5 and 10 times points for spending at grocery stores, restaurants, bars, and food delivery services :
- 10X the points with the American Express® Aeroplan®* Reserve Card (up to 50,000 points)
- 10X the points with the American Express® Aeroplan®* Business Reserve Card.
- 5X the points with the American Express® Aeroplan®* Card (up to 25,000 points)
- 5X the points with the Marriott Bonvoy™ American Express® Card (up to 25,000 points)
- 5X the points with the Marriott Bonvoy™ Business American Express® Card
- 10X the points with the Platinum Card® (up to 50,000 points)
- 5X the Miles with the American Express® AIR MILES®* Reserve Credit Card (up to 2,500 miles)
For most cards, these are bonus points that are in addition to the points you would normally receive for purchases charged to your card. So you can earn 7 Marriott Bonvoy points per dollar with the Marriott Bonvoy™ American Express® Card or 12 Aeroplan points per dollar with the American Express® Aeroplan®* Reserve Card!
Or even 13 Membership Rewards points per dollar for current Platinum Cardmembers. This is unheard of for this type of spending.
And from June 28 to August 23, 2021, don’t forget to register your American Express cards to participate in the Shop Small event!

American Express online offers are a great way to get more points and rebates.
Over a year, this can even pay back all or part of the annual fee! For example, with my American Express Cobalt™ Card alone, I’ve already earned $140 in statement credit!
That’s enough to put the $10 monthly fee into perspective!
