Note this is for Canada. I'm looking for a new travel credit card. There are some big Air Miles rewards welcome bonuses in the market. I never here about Air Miles when people discuss travel cards in Canada (usually it's Aeroplan, Avion, Amex Gold, Aventura, TD First Class, etcc). Why is that? Bad earn rate, hard to redeem, poor redemption value? The premium card has a 3,000 air mile sign-up bonus, which is good enough for 2 free return flights. What gives?
