1. You can earn AIR MILES reward miles for eligible retail purchases at American Express merchants in Canada as follows: • 1 reward mile for every $10 at AIR MILES Sponsors. Visit the eligible sponsor list at americanexpress.ca/airmilessponsors. List is subject to change without notice. • 1 reward mile for every $10 at (i) stand-alone gasoline stations for automobiles, (ii) stand-alone grocery stores, and (iii) stand-alone drugstores. Purchases at merchants where gas, grocery and pharmacy sales are not their primary business (including superstores, wholesale clubs, alcohol retailers and general merchandise retailers) and purchases at sponsors do not qualify for the earn rate in this category. • 1 reward mile for every $15 of other card purchases. Merchants are typically assigned codes and categorized based on what they sell. Earn rate of 1 reward mile for every $15 applies if the merchant code is not in an eligible category, the purchase is made using an electronic wallet or is not made directly from the provider of the good or service, e.g. through a third party or by using a mobile device (e.g. smart phone) with an attached card reader. Provided your account is in good standing, reward miles can be earned on eligible purchases less returns and other credits. Funds advances, interest, fees, balance transfers, Amex cheques and charges for travellers cheques and foreign currencies are not purchases and do not earn reward miles. 

2. Supplementary Cards - Maximum of 9 Supplementary Cards. Account must be in good standing. Supplementary Card applicant must be the age of majority. Supplementary Cards do not have access to the annual Companion Flight Benefit and Priority Pass Worldwide Lounge Access.
