So I signed up for another American Express card. Currently the AeroplanPlus Gold Card miles has a new offer of 30,000 Bonus Aeroplan Miles when you charge $500 in purchases for the first three months of Card membership. You also do not pay no annual fee for the first year ($120 value).
The regular offer is just 25,000 Aeroplan miles so you are earning a nice bonus for using our link! This offer expires July 14, 2014.
You only need 30,000 Aeroplan points for (2) round-trip short haul flights (could be BC to Oregon or Ontario to New York or North Carolina even) or 25,000 points for a free round-trip flight to anywhere in North America!
Here is the award chart for 25,000 Aeroplan Miles:
