Hmm I hope buying gift cards would work.
Not expecting to spend $500 on Black Friday.
Probably not eligible if buying through Paypal?

Nope, has to be charged to your account with the correct merchant code. So it has to be from amazon.ca direct.

Initially I didn't get this offer on my personal platinum but registered the offer later using the link posted here. Purchased $1,000 gift card (one transaction) on Friday and received the bonus 4000 MR this morning.

No, you have to use the AMEX Offers page for partner cards.

Honestly, if you have the Scotia Gold Amex card, just walk into any grocery store and pick up a couple Amazon GCs and you still get the Amazon multiplier and you can do this year round. Until card issuers in Canada get Level 3 data, they still can't see what you bought. Of course, I don't recommend you to spend like $1k on GCs at a supermarket, it might throw some red flags.

Aeroplan has 5x miles on purchases at amazon currently as well and last year you could get them for both buying gift cards and spending the gift cards. So you can buy gift cards get 5x amex, 5x aeroplan and then spend the gift cards and get 5x aeroplan again
