American Express is going after Canadian market share like a Panzer division going after Paris.
Recently, the financial giant elbowed its way into a deal with Aeroplan, with the promise of a mileage-earning card in what had been an exclusive relationship between Air Canada and CIBC.
And while American Express has had a strong presence in Canada for a while, its promotions never quite measured up to the aggressive push south of the border.
