American Express in Canada is offering an automatic upgrade into a new first tier in the Membership Rewards program. This new tier offers access to the exclusive First Collection of awards featuring premium brands and experiences designed specifically for cardmembers. An enhanced Platinum lounge benefit lets cardmembers enjoy complimentary lounge access in Plaza Premium Lounges and Servisair Executive Lounges regardless of the type of fare purchased or the airline flown. And membership will grant access to a new American Express lounge opening soon in Toronto’s Pearson International Airport.
Other new card features include emergency medical insurance, trip cancellation or interruption insurance and InRoomMD Travel Healthcare Concierge program for travelers needing medical assistance while in the U.S. The card comes with a CA$399 annual fee.
