70,000 Points Offer
To qualify for the 70,000 bonus points, you must have at least $6,000 in net purchases posted to your account on or before your six (6) month anniversary date.
30,000 Points Offer
To qualify for the additional 30,000 points after 14 months of Cardmembership, one (1) purchase of any amount must be charged to your Card within 14 to 17 months of Cardmembership and subsequently posted to your account. For example, if you reach your 12 months of Cardmembership on June 23, 2022, you would have to make a purchase between August 23, 2022 and no later than November 23, 2022 to be eligible for the 30,000 bonus points.
Points Offer on Eligible Eats & Drinks
You can earn 7 additional Membership Rewards points for every $1 spent at (i) restaurant, quick service restaurant, coffee shop and drinking establishments in Canada, (ii) delivery of food and groceries in Canada as a primary business, and earn 9 additional Membership Rewards points for every $1 spent at (iii) stand-alone grocery stores in Canada on your Platinum Card, up to a combined maximum for (i), (ii) and (iii) of 50,000 points in the first six (6) months of Cardmembership. Reference to 10 Membership Rewards points on eligible eats & drinks includes this offer combined with the standard earn rate. Once the combined maximum is reached or after 6 months of Cardmembership, whichever comes first, you will no longer earn bonus points on these categories and will continue to earn at the standard earn rate on these categories. Supplementary Card purchases count towards the 50,000 points threshold.
Standard Earn Rate
You can earn Membership Rewards points (“points”) for eligible consumer purchases at American Express retail merchants as follows: 3 points for every $1 at restaurants, quick service restaurants, coffee shops and drinking establishments in Canada; and 2 points for every $1 for travel services or travel bookings including air, water, rail and road transport, lodging and tour operator sales, but not including local and commuter transportation.
For both the Points Offer on Eligible Eats & Drinks and the Standard Earn Rate: Purchases at merchants where these categories are not their primary business such as general merchandise retailers do not qualify. Merchants are typically assigned codes and categorized based on what they sell. Earn rate of 1 point for every $1 applies when the merchant code is not in an eligible category, using a payment account or service of a third party, a card reader attached to a mobile phone, or online retailer that sells goods of other merchants, or the merchant category is otherwise not identified. Provided your account is in good standing, points can be earned on eligible purchases less returns and other credits. Interest charges, annual fees, other fees and cash equivalent transactions are not purchases and do not qualify for Membership Rewards points.
