For reference (Don't think they have it anymore)
- 75,000 points + $200 statement credit for the Amex Platnium
- $699 annual fee

Also the Amex Gold is/was 25,000 or 30,000 points with first year waived. Not sure if that is still going on either.

Is the Aeroplan Plus worth the annual fee?

$20 for 15000 AP? I think it's OK!

$1500 spend + $20 for 15k Aeroplan.

I mean, like Jerry said there's better deals to be had but if you aren't currently churning anything...

I guess for $1500 min spend, I don't take that into account. I'm sure every RFDer can manage that in less than 3 months if they charge even a $1 coffee to the CC.

Or get 25K with the Gold card with first year free... like I don't know why this is even thread worthy.
For people who have already done the Gold, this is not a terrible offer.

The Gold rewards card allows you to convert the rewards to Aeroplan (1 to 1).

my problem with AMEX is that it's hard to find anyone to take your damn card.

the service is awesome (only company who i was able to cancel my card online directly).. however, there's no point keeping a card when you have to literally beg the merchant to accept it

Never had to beg a merchant to accept it. There are lots and lots of merchants who accept Amex.

All gas stations. All major drug store chains. All hotels. All airlines. All major car rentals. All major retail chains (Walmart, Home Depot, Lowes, Rona, Crappy Tire, Seas, Bay...). Food Basic/Metro. Sobeys/Foodland. Buying things in ebay or other retailers who accept paypal. You can even pay tax and utility bills through paytm...
